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.

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 (1092) - 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.

The aroma is pleasant and coffeeish and slightly plummy and of roasted malt barley. The flavour is goodly but not exceedingly so, if you know what I mean. That is to say that its flavour and palate seemed to me slightly lesser than Ayinger's Brau Weisse or, more arguably, the Ur-Weisse. Still, another good brew from that old-time Bavarian favourite Ayinger.

Pours nicely with a large foamy head, nice bubbles, and a little bit of lacing on the glass. Has a pleasant clean smell that neither attracts nor repels. First taste I notice a little bitterness in the back of the throat that blossoms into something else, kind of complex. Second taste has a sharper bite to it, don't like that too much. I can definately taste a coffee flavor, but something more like espresso with more of a kick to it. Not too bad. Overall, I don't think I like this beer all that much, but I haven't had much like it before!

color is deep brown, thin tan head. aroma is malty as hell, slightly nutty with slight alcohol. Flavor is medium-bodied, with chocolate and dark fruits, and a little leather. Hops are not apparent to my tongue.
