Dunkelweizen or weizenbock?  They're still wheat beers but you didn't mention them specifically and the main page of the AHA website has a recipe for a weizenbock from Brewing Classic Styles by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer.

+1 - or dampfbeir - http://www.germanbeerinstitute.com/Dampfbier.html
That's what I was going to say. I made one last year, it was quite an interesting beer.

The one I did last year was essentially an oktoberfest grist with Weihenstephaner hefe yeast. It was good.
