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 amber colour with verry little off white head. Beautiful aromas of roasted malt and caramel. Medium body with a fair bit of sweetness. A good beer but I expected more from Ayinger

Dark amber w/ big tan head. Toasted malt aroma w/ caramel & herbs. Medium-full bodied. Rich malty flavour w/ toast, bread, caramel, toffee, coffee, & raisins, a slight oak-ish sourness, and very bitter finish.

It actualy surprised me to find this where I live. My town often gets boring with its selections since I've already had everything they have to offer. I rarely get a chance to be surprised. Has a dustiness in the aroma that was very appealing. Rich amber colour with large head that ended up on my table. My nose could actually taste a bitter with this however the actual taste wasn't that bitter at all. Well balanced and smooth. However I don't find it that complex. A treat for where I live.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2003 (5oo ml Bottle) Such a pleasure to see this in the liquor board - I was mighty bored of the selection. Pours an almonde head and a deep mahogany-red body. Nutty Aroma with strong malt and smoke. Fairly smoky beer with nice hops and bitterness. Weak finish. Smooth but lacks complexity; very good though.

Auburn with a tan head. The nose is malty with light citrusy notes and a touch of smoke. Fruit in the nature of fresh hops at the end of the nose. The beginning is smokey sweet. The middle gets bittersweet with a good firm, but mild citrusy hop bitterness. The smoke comes through again towards the end blending nicely with the hop bitterness. Nicely balanced and tastey dunkel.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 10, 2003
Doug is right on that, it is sweet aroma, fairly light I would say. Fairly refreshing, light (in taste) dunkel. I expected a bit more sophistication from Ayinger.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2003
Sugar sweet aroma, copper, with a large billowy toffee head. Roasted malt flavour, a burning bitterness, pomegranate taste as well. Bitter, acidic and warming. Good example of the style.

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 27, 2003
(Bottle). Reddish brown colour, good head. Moderate aroma of oak and caramel malts. Medium body, typical dunkel, some toffee flavour but not too sweet. Must be good with food. Lightly hopped, pleasant, easy drinking. Maybe not the greatest beer in the world, but impossible to dislike, if you like beer at all (which the other ratings prove).

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2003
Just had the Maibock 3 days ago, this taste very similiar to me now. Dark in color, with a medium size head. Taste of carmel malt, fairly sweet, very little little hops. Ayinger must drink their coffee with lots of sugar, I swear taste sweet taste is much stronger than anything resembling coffee. Nice brew though!

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2003
Malty and a bit tangy. Caramel. Crisp and sweet hoppiness. Rye. Off-white foamy lacing head atop beautiful clear deep coppery red/brown. Medium thick watery body and medium carbonation. Nice and malty. Not too sweet. Nice nutty finish and after. Good balance of sweet malt and bitterness. An enjoyable dunkel.
