This brew pours cloudy dark brown, almost black, and is topped by a massive brown head. The aroma beckons with abundant ripe banana bread smells bolstered by fresh, spicy cloves and caramel. The flavor features roasted barley that is slightly burnt with big toffee sweetness that coats the tongue. The brew’s banana and spice qualities increase in intensity through the swallow, but never overpower the palate. While the beer’s color and flavor are bolder than most of this style, Kapuziner still features the signature characters of a well-crafted dunkelweizen: a medium body, dry finish and roasted grains and banana that linger deep into the aftertaste.
