Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

The most overrated beer in the world? Nowhere near to it’s 100 style rating. Very typical yet quite good and nicely balanced dunkel. Nothing special, good social drink.

Was hieran komplex sein soll, das ist mir nicht ganz bewusst, denn im Grunde spielt das Bier hier nur mit Malz und ein paar Röstaromen. Der Geschmack ist recht langweilig und muffig. Vielleicht kann ein Dunkel eben kein gutes Piwo werden, nicht mal wenn es von den Ayinger Jungs kommt.

McTapps (5169) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Getränkemarkt Fristo in Bamberg. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste of roasted malt, old chocolat, leaves, woods, plums and barley. Malty finish. Solid beer, yet nothing very special or enjoyable.

MarkoNm (1109) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 6, 2014
Pours a clear, light brown/dark copper color, topped with a decent tan colored head. A mild malty aroma, some roasty notes and quite some caramel - nice. The taste starts sweet, slightly roasty with nice caramel and chocolate. Some bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable and delicious.

On tap at Ayinger braustuberl, Aying. Deep ruby color, clear, dark mahogany in distance, big beige head. Quiet nose with roasted malts. Aroma: toasted malts with a chocolatey aftertaste, dark bread, fennel and spices. Taste is perfectly balanced from an initial mild sweetness to a decisive but not aggressive bitter finish. Body is medium, low carbonation. Finish is dry, medium duration. Excellent dunkel, classic style. "Hell" of a dunkel. 12.8°
