Appalachian Brewing Company Dunkelweizen
While at Appalachian Brewing Company, I ordered a glass of the small batch of Dunkelweizen. The beer pours a copper color with a frothy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of sweet malts, caramel, and a light pine accent. The taste is smooth a sweet with caramel, an enjoyable smoked malt accent, and a toffee finish with a little pepper accent. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. The beer is a bit dry, but not as watery as some dunkelweizens can be, which was appreciated. The smoked flavor was nicely done and wasn’t overwhelming, providing a nice dry and smoked flavor without making it seem like you ate a fireplace.
