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.

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°

"perfect for the style. Ayinger knows what they’re doing and it shows. Nopthing that;ll blow your socks off, but the kind of beer you want to throw back several times during Oktoberfest...or the playoffs!"

A legjobbfajtából való, télen melegít, nyáron hűsít. Tavasszal és ősszel csak oltja a szomjat és ellazít.

decaturstevo (5342) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Medium brown pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt, toffee, and breadiness. A touch of earthy hops. Flavor is semi sweet bready malt dominates with a touch of hoppiness on the finish. Meidum bodied with good carbonation. a touch of oxidation?

0,5l Flasche. Dunkles Bier mit heller Schaumkrone. Riecht angenehm nach Röstmalzen. Schmeckt auch so, angenehm süffig.

caramel and fruity aroma with notes of vanilla... the taste of caramel malt and tobacco with some shades of coffee and dark fruits... sweet aftertaste with fruity notes...

On tap at the ABV Public House. Pours a clear dark brown with a small off-white head and some moderate lacing on the glass. Smell is a fruity plum and toffee. Taste is plum and toffee, and a beautiful maltiness. Medium mouthfeel and a hint of hops balances nicely.

Missing Germany in the fall right about now. This one is a perfect example of the classic Munich dunkel lager. Dark and nutty, Clear brown with nice thick velvety head. Yummy stuff!

You want a great example of malt done right? Then look no further than this beer. Wonderful slightly buttery with caramel, toffee and a hint of salt. Rich in malt and absolutely fantastic. What is possibly this beer’s best characteristic is the very light undercurrent of coffee. Aromas are of buttered raisin toast, I don’t know how else to describe it but it is fantastic. Full bodied but not overly so, pleasant. Finish starts sweet but is not at all cloying. Then enters a nice light bitterness and slight crisp bite.Deep mahogany in color with a medium tan head that lasts. This is a great beer, one of the best I’ve had in a long time quite honestly. Gotta give it to those Germans sometimes being brilliant in the basics of brewing can lend a more superior product that those seeking the extremes of the craft just to chase down the next "imperial" thing. Great beer.
