Nice black beer with a lot of balance between sweetness and liquorice/ coffee. Got better as it warmed. pumpmaster (1437) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2009
1 liter draft at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany for 3.50Euro. Very good. thornecb (6093) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Pours clear mahogany into a shaker. Cola head dissipates to nothing in a flash. Mild caramel aromas. Crisp with sweet caramel upfront turning sharp and metallic in the cloying lasting finish. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2009
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad.. 1 liter. Pours a clear brown color with light tan head. Caramel malt, hints of fruit, grain, and nuts. Easy drinking. Decent. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap in Miami shared by Oakes. Cloudy brown pour with a decent sized beige head. Great caramel malt aroma. Flavor is full of caramel, nuts and is a bit sweet. Do yourself a favor and try the Hofbrau beers fresh on tap...what a difference.

Had a somewhat cloudy appearence and poured a medium tan head. has a slightly bitter taste, but goes down smooth enough. Lowe1983 (1647) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours a brown color with a tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel malts, plums, and a little toffee. Flavor is pretty close to the aroma with a slightly dry finish. Overall it’s pretty decent. IauditUUhateme (22) - Coram, New York, USA - APR 3, 2009
On tap at J&R steakhouse. Nice color, good head that hung around a bit. A little lighter tasting than I expected. Solid Dunkel, like something you could serve to a non-craft beer guy. Sweet, malty taste & aroma. I wouldn’t seek it out, but would definately have it again. Blockley (104) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2009

A great beer, I must say; I found it to be immediately enjoyable and noted that I would certainly drink it again.
It pours an appealing dark colour with a decent frothy head which, unfortunately, recedes a bit too quickly. It has an enduring and pleasing flavour; with a distinct hint of caramel. It goes down very well. Well worth buying!
Coffee colored body with a creamy, thick, bubbly head and very nice lacing. Toasty malt aroma with a solid biscuit scent. Silky smooth texture coupled with a light creaminess. Very well balanced brew. Multi grain toast and toffee are found in the flavor along with a hint of chocolate (very faint hint) and some grassy noble hops. A surprisingly good dunkel, would make for a fantastic session brew.
