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.

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 (2843) - 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.

Great dark red color with a creamy offwhite head. The flavor is very complex, with lots of sweet malts, fruit, a hint of honey, and some bitterness. The palate is very nice but a bit thin, and there isn't much of an aftertaste. A very good dunkel.

Nice deep ruby brown color. Good roasty flavor. Not as heavily-bodied as the DeGroen's I just had. Nicely balanced sweet-roasty malt finish! Yea!

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2003
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Very carbonated dark clear copper body with a great foamy head, generous and long-lasting. Aroma is malty and showed hints of herbal honey and brown sugar. The taste is definitely on the sweet end, dark earthy fruits with notes of smoke in the finish. So quaffable that you basically feel the water quality used in this concoction was as good as it gets. Aftertaste is... fresh, like I had just brushed my teeths with more toothpaste than I should have used. Still, what I prefered about this beer is its refreshing lager character combined with a marvellous creamy round texture which makes you keep it on the tongue for a while before swallowing. Cheers Todd.
