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.

Of all the beers I’ve tried from Ayinger, I liked this one the least.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Very malty. A good dark lager but just a little weak and watery on the finish, which keeps it from being top of the line. Smells great!

Indra (2641) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 8, 2002
Reddish-brown color. Some nut and chocolate aromas. Average carbonation, but enormous head. Malt dominates the flavor profile, which has some dark bread qualities. There is also a tad of sweetness, mostly apparent in the aftertaste. Not much in the way of hops. Finish is a little off; I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it just needs to finish differently. An okay beer, though, overall.

Roasted flavour, O.K. bitterness, a bit watery aftertaste.

Fantomasus (217) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 7, 2002
Looks and smells great, which confuses me cause it doesn’t have alot of flavor. What flavor there is, is nice and it has a nice clean sweet finish but, my early expectations weren’t met. Maybe I need to have another?

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - DEC 26, 2001
Sweet malty aroma and flavor. Fits style perfectly. Well balanced not too cloying. Some chocolate malt notes come through in the taste. Another good beer by Ayinger. That’s why they are one of Germany’s best!

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2001
A good dark beer but not all that I expected from the Ayinger name. A very pronounced aroma. I assume it is the hops, I am still kind of new at this. A clean sweetness to it that leaves a nice hoppiness behind on the tongue. I may have to re-rate this later.

Powerful malty chocolate taste. Too bad they don’t know how to hop beer.

heykevin (1277) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2001
Wonderful dark color, sweetish malty aroma backed with some hops. Flavor is as good as a I’ve in a dark lager of its strength. Caramelly, roatsty, and slightly sweet, but never cloying. A winner.
