3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark caramel pour with tan head. Caramel malt, banana and sweet ripe fruit in the aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with heavy malts. Medium body and soft carbonation. A bit syrupy sweet. Good, but not a style I gravitate to.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance was a semi-dark brown amber colored body with a two and a half finger white foamy head that lasts about a minute before dieing into the body, foamy clingy lacing starts to spider web after about a minute; light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace.
The smell had sweet German malts, light banana, light chocolate.
The taste had a malty sweetness leading to a rich sweet dark aftertaste; sweet dark malty lingering finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium in the body as it wants to show a heavier depth to it, but stays lighter to show a pretty good sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation runs really smooth and dark over the mouth and tongue.
Overall, I say this is a wonderful Munich Dunkel that I would have again and wouldn’t mind putting it with a pirece of cheesecake with nothing on it.

Smooth and easy drinking, not super interesting however. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a thick tan head. Smells of malt and maybe a bit of cherry. Taste is malty, not very creamy, and a slightly roasty finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear amber brown color with large creamy light brown head, fair lacing and soft visible carobonation. Aroma of caramel malt, dandelions, vegetables, herbal hops with mild chocolate notes. Taste starts very refreshing, while following is moderate sweet toasted malt with toffee flavour and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Another fabulous brew from Ayinger...

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma on this beer is weak. There is some perceptible malt but overall it is the one weak point in the beer. The beer is wonderful in the mouth. Light yet some malt sweetness. The balance is also observed in the taste which is well balanced between good caramel malt and fine noble hops.

A solid dark beer. Aroma is almost offensive, but everything else is really good. Not too heavy but full flavored. -March madness 2014
