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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Brownish pour with a foamy white head. Some lacing. Roast malts, some caramel, like the description says, just a hint of plum hiding about in there. Malt stands out the most in the flavors, followed by a mellow blend of bitter hops, and a bit of the coffee-ish mentioned. The caramel is there, but not in any significant amounts. Full bodied, malty palate, finishing with a hoppy bitterness. Good dunkel.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Very nice creamy head which leaves some nice lacing. Dusty, bready malt aroma. Excellent deep reddish/brown in color. Flavor is mostly roasted malts with a hint of coffee and some hops. A well balanced beer. Nice bitter finish from the hops. A very good dunkel.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 (Bottled) Very beautiful deep, dark red color with a foamy, diminishing and lacy head. Malty, sweet and nutty aroma. Roasted malt, caramel and coffee are present in the sweetish flavor. Smooth and creamy, medium-bodied palate with bitter and dry finish, and balanced carbonation. A throughly enjoyable, full and filling brew, that would easily take in 2% more ABV.

Sweet monkey... Pours a rich and dark brown, but not black. Solid malt aroma and taste. A little thin on the body. Still, a beer that screams Bavaria and Munich. Does Ayinger make bad beer?

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Red brown color with tan head. Munich malt bready aroma. Big malty flavor that says MUNICH! This is the way that I like beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Aroma is of sweet lager. Great dark red color. Head is perfect, not too rocky, but resilient non the less. Very smooth to drink. Full to medium mouthfeel. Big malty taste, hops are subdued and are more bitter toward a fizzy finish. Not a bad beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Beautiful ruby brown color with large soft off white head, plenty of lace. Roasted malt aroma with hints of smoke and honey. If you look hard you can find some sweet malt in there, but I predominantly get a roasted (more like almonds than coffee), smokey tobacco flavor that bites and stabs at my tongue and throat, could just be my palate tonite (after that sake). Somewhat thin body, quick finish. Das ist gut, but I'd rather drink any other Ayinger.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2003
A reddish brown appearance. Aroma is chocolatey but not overpowering. Flavor is slightly sour with a hint of chocolate and raisins. Fairly thin mouthfeel and overall not as flavorful as other Dunkels Ive tried. Pretty good but nothing that really stands out.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2003
One of the better dunkels I've run into. Deep red, thin off-white head. Nose full of malts and light roasts. Flavor full of caramel malts, lightly toasted, pleasingly sweet. Good stuff.
