Anchor Winter Wheat

This 7.0% ABV dark wheat ale is from the Anchor Brewing Company of San Francisco, California. They are one of America's original craft brewers in the modern era. The beer is brewed with barley in addition to five different wheats from Belgium, Germany, the Midwest, plus from a family farm 75 miles from the brewery. 

The beer pours black in color with a half inch of thick, somewhat creamy, tan to light brown head. The aroma is roasted, lightly smokey, with a tang both fruit and mineral. It actually reminds me of a Guinness product. The taste follows the aromas, but kicks everything up a notch, more rich, more roasted, more smokey, more full, more fruity. The beer drinks very smooth, with a moderately bitter finish.
