bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Muito boa cerveja da Stephani. Coloração vinho escuro; espuma densa e presente, coloração ambar. Cheiro gostoso, frutado e adocicado. Ceveja encorpada. Grãos torrados no sabor na medida certa. Levemente adocicada (caramelo) Retrogosto amargo. Melhor que a de trigo. Cerveja de baixa fermentação. Refrescante.

villevav (217) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Aroma: caramel, bread . Appearance: brown, clear. Medium body, lively. A very nice dunkel. I wonder if this beer is actually the same beer as Hofbrau München Dunkel, because it is actually brewed by HB.

Massively malty and not the least bit bitter. I'd say it's between a bock and a doppelbock in taste. Very pleasant and rich.

jerohen (2010) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2006
Bottled, 0.5 liter BB August 2006 (sampled december 2006). Clear amber brown coloured. Malts and fruit in aroma, some notes of port-wine. Sweet malty flavour with some notes one normally finds in aged trappist ales, i’m not sure how to describe it though. Very nice balance, lasting finish. Good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 Bottle 500ml. Very enjoyable. Aroma is malty, butterscotch. Looks are ok, clear brown colour with a head that doesn’t last. Flavour is sweet throughout, with some bitterness at the end. Duration is above average. Medium body and dry.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 On-tap. A - Deep copper amber color with an average to slightly below average sized head that is off-white, foamy, and a bit creamy. Decent retention with a nice lace left over. S - A good amount of toasted grainy malts and some caramel and toffee. T - A lot like the smell. A lot of toasted, grainy malt taste upfront make up the base. Also a good amount of caramel and toffee. Hints of some fruit, a bit of apple and some raisin. On the finish is just the slightest taste of some grassy and earthy hops along with some bread taste. M - Somewhere between light and medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp taste and somewhat smooth. D - Easy to drink beer that is well balanced and has a good amount of malt flavors. Notes: Nice easy to drink beer that is a touch light on flavor and mouthfeel. Good session type of beer, and a solid beer from a very solid brewery.
