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°

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.
