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.

Alright, Alright. This is some rough shit. First taste is a killer, never mind the second. I personally feel that I could have went my entire life without having dealt with this. You know? This probably wouldn’t have been as bad if it had came in something smaller than a 1 pint bottle. Like every other Dunkel I’ve ever had: Avoid, Throw away, discard, do not buy... ever.

Tastes so good but I’d like just a little more body. More body would almost be a double bock though. Great example of the balance that can be struck between sweet kilned malts and noble hops.

(Bottle) Pours a dark amber color with a medium-sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of hay and flavor of rich caramel.

Pailhead (5575) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is very fruity. I can smell the plums. A slight coffee smell as well. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a small head. Minimal lacing. Taste is weaker than expected based on smell. Malty flavor with some hints of coffee and chocolate. Aroma, appearance, and palate are all great but the flavor is a bit lacking.

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 (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, 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.
