That's basically what happened with my attempt at a Schwartzweizen. I ended up calling it a "Wheat Stout." I haven tried it again, but when I do, I think I'll stick with chocolate malt and Carafa II or III for the dark malts.

Yeah if I did it again, I'd go with 4-8oz of Chocolate wheat rather than the full pound. Too much roast with a full pound. You could do the full pound but amp up the hops.... could be an interesting beer but wasn't what I was going after.

Wouldn't this go well with a hefeweizen yeast? More like a dunkelweizen? That's how it strikes me?!

320 is the american hefe yeast. Its a little more subdued than the 300. I didn't want bubble gum and roast. I thought that would clash.

right, i didn't see the 320 part, someone put in they used 05, which would just make it a brown wheat ale...
320 sounds like a top yeast for this, it strikes me as a dunkel weizen, so i'd be tempted to try 300 instead, chocolate banana and wheat sounds pretty tasty to me.
