3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is toasted malts, dark fruits. Taste is light coffee, roasted malts, sweet nuttiness up front and then moves to a clean, light finish. Awesome dunkel and one of the better German beers I’ve had. Ayinger can do no wrong.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red brown with medium long lasting beige head. Aroma is dried figs, maybe dates, caramel and syrup. Taste is sweet (but not too sweet) with a little bitterness and very natural carbonation induced sourness. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with dates finish. Overall very nice. Comparable with the doppelbock but less intense, less strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark ruby brown from the bottle. Clear, with a frothy tan head that quickly subsides. Aroma has strong caramel and roasted notes with evident toffee. Taste is bittersweet with rich roasted malt flavors. Lots of toffee. Could be a bit more robust, and no exotic notes here, but is still a pleasant sipping companion and quite good for the style. Good stuff.

Pours a sparkling reddish brown body with a tan disappearing head. Rich aroma of bread, wine, dried plumms, malt, with notes of caramel. Taste starts with plumms, later joined by dark bread, chocolate and caramel. A bit metallic. Finish bittersweet of dark bread. Medium body with a thin (a bit sticky) texture and lively carbonation. Pleasant to drink.
