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.

Dark Red colored with chocolate and coffee flavoring. Would be a very good winter weather beer because of its toasty effect it gives you while drinking. Good Beer.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Yowza. Tried this side-by-side with a brown ale and the profile similarities were striking. This was the better of the two, with a deeper more rounded palette of flavors. The malt was overstated in a strong tea/weak coffee beginning, leading to a chestnut-like nutty sweetness in the middle that followed to a clear crystal malt finish. This was, for my taste, too sweet and almost chocolately. I would have preferred a drier, more toasted flavor. But this was still pretty good. Also, silky smooth mouthfeel. THANK YOU to WUNDERBIER for the cool trade!

#2 of my 3 bottle ayinger spree tonight. this one pours kind of dark, looks more like a dark iced tea. small head that goes away. smells malty. has a mild coffee flavor, with a sweet fruity aftertaste. this is really good. much better than the one i just drank.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 Beautiful coffee-red color with invitingly poofy toffee-colored head. Nice roasted and sweet barley aroma. Excellent rounded flavor of light smokiness, a hint of coffee, and roasted goodness. This rocks.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2004
Dark brown with a initially thick and rocky brown head. Smoked malt aroma with a touch of chocolate. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate, light coffee, roasted malt. Somewhat sticky finish, but clean, nonetheless. Just a step below what I would consider heavily carbonated. It's not gonna blow your socks off compared to a lot of beers, but as far as dunkels go... it's top notch. Nice brew.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2004
bottled: this one pours light brown with a tan head that disipated quickly, not alot of co2. nose is mostly malty, not alot up the nares. taste is sweet and light crystal malt, choc malt. one of the most sweet and light dunkels i have ever had. good, but i cant imagine drinking many of them at once. needs a little more bite for me.

I don't find much of an aroma with this brew, maybe some carmel malt; the flavor is definitely roasted carmel dominated with a light coffee and doughy goodness; nice brew.

This is a good Dunkel. Malty, earthy, and a little smokey flavor. Finishes smooth, clean, and crisp.
