Roasted cereals, caramel aroma. Caramel malt flavor, mild plum, coffee beans, clean finish. A decent dunkel without being exceptional, maybe a tad too light in texture.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
...draft at the Melbourne Hofbrau House. In the glass looked a dark reddish brown with a tan head that was mostly lasting. On the nose were roasted malts, caramel, and hints of sweet malt. Mouthfeel was thin, with flavors of roasted malts, and some hints of toffee. Finish was dry, and slightly metallic. There was something missing. I was not impressed, especially by the price.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours translucent brown with a ruby red hue and a light beige head. Very sweet caramel aroma with a hint of candied dates. The flavor is similar to the aroma, sweet caramel with some toffee and dried fruit. Pretty good beer but not as good as the one on tap at the Newport Hofbrauhaus.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark amber color pour with a bug lasting offwhite foamy head , leaving lots of spotty lacing ,lively carbonation . Aroma of dry caramel malt grain , toasty with some molasses, toffee ,and a wheat type tang .Flavor is dry and nutty with caramel and molasses, suprisingly complex, some earthy hops , a very slight metallic hint , probably from the carbonation, gets much better as it warms .Light body with a slightly dry but crisp and clean mouthfeel , short roasty finish , very drinkable and very good. This was all in all a great beer .
