COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured reddish-brown with an off-white head that left a thin lacing on the glass. Faint spicy aroma. Tasted rather thin, with some roasted malt. A rather unpleasant soy sauce character is evident. One of the poorest selections I’ve had from Ayinger.

Fizzy and mellow. That about sums it up for me. It sizzles on the tongue, but the flavor is mellow to the point where nothing really stands out. Good enough, but for the price there are many better.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Pours a very dark brown with a few red highlights. A large off-whte head tops this. The aroma is cooked carrots with some bread crust. Also has a touch of chocolate and raisins. The flavor is a nice fruity mix of raisins and some light chocolate. It also has a touch of carrots. A fairly light mouthfeel. Another solid entry from Ayinger.

flemdawg (539) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Amber in color with a fluffy tan head. Plums first in the aroma with malts and carmel, also rasins. Very malty taste, but also got dark dried fruits. A bit of a woody finish. Very smooth, but maybe a bit watery for my tastes right now. Drinkable, and tasty.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Brownish red color. Huge initial head that dissipated quickly. Smooth and tasty. Coffee with sweetness, though also light on flavor. Lacks the confusing flavor of the only other dunkel I had that made it hard to rate. This one is a good beer overall. And it gets better as it gets warmer.

CBCPaleAle (73) - Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2004
This isn’t one of my favorite styles, but this version is pretty good. Dark copper/ruby color, minimal head. High malt presence, pretty light on the hops. However, there is enough hops here to tone down the sweetness of the malt. Really nice balnce here.

piwodevo (53) - chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Bottle. Gorgeous crystal clear mahogany color, thin quick tan head. Malty, but not heavy, Well balanced bittering hops, tepid flavor and aroma hops. Nice clean finish. Tasty brew in lieu of the Fest-Marzen. Solid beer.

IndianaRed (2726) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Bottle Pours a medium mahogany with a nice foamy light tan head. Aroma is of dark malts mostly. Flavor is of wod barrels malts, and a slightly sour taste with not much hops. Good body and smooth feel. Moderate carbonation. Woody, slightly chalky finish.
