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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 Full on molasses/raisin nose. Dark, slightly reddish color with thick,quickly diminishing light brown head. Light malty bitterness around middle dissipates quickly in swallow which is ringed with earthy overtones. Dunkel done right. One of my favorites.

Frank (2881) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2003
Deep reddish brown. Foamy head is mostly diminishing but leaves a ring of lace around the top of the glass. Sweet malty aroma with hints of raisins, dough, and yeast. Round, creamy mouthfeel with mild but noticeable carbonation. Front is very lightly sour and somewhat sweet. Fruity malts come out in the middles along with some roast/smokey notes that linger into the mildly bitter finish. Subtle and superbly balanced.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 28, 2003
this was a real cool brew. This has characteristics of the clebrator in the malt presence. Aroma was that of mixed vegtables-palate was smooth with subtle spice notes. Probably the best dunkel i have ever had.

Poured a clear reddish amber with a beige head (good retention). Strong malt aroma with hints of toffee. Lots of malt in the flavor with a light sweetness. Carmelized toffee aftertaste with light hop bitterness. Dry, medium mouthfeel. Well balanced.
