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.

Re-Rate: Deep Burgundy, lots of lace. Toasty, kind of spicey that works well with the carbonation. well balanced.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2002
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 Pours a clear dark amber with a creamy off white head that leaves some lacing in my glass, bready, fruity aromas. Nutty caramel, chocolate flavors, medium bodied with a creamy smooth mouthfeel, surprisingly it has a somewhat dry finish, a great lager.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Clear dark amber color. Malty in both aroma and flavor. Slightly buttery. Spicy dry finish.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 4, 2002
THE beer to have with sausage. Dark, beautiful color that smells of toffe. Very sweet with a lingering finish. The only thing i did not like was the wateriness of it.

cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2002
A beautiful dark, reddish brown, medium bodied, somewhat sweetly malted Bavarian dark lager, with a nice head that doesn’t dissipate, a touch of fruit, and a rich, dry, slightly acrid finish at first that grows better with every sip, but more importantly, the bottle says: “brewed in accordance to the ‘Reinheitsgebot’ Purity law of 1516!” Now what in God’s name is that? It sounds Medieval!

SudsMaster (68) - Denville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2002
An excellent dark brown sweet lager. Smooth and malty, with virtually no hoppiness. A filling brew.

PhillyBeer2112 (2580) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2002
Oh what a great caramelly toffeeish dunkel. Perfect malty sweet, warming beer with a nice brown-amber color and large foamy head. Why are raters calling for more hops?! I can’t think of a more out-of-style suggestion to make.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - MAR 17, 2002
Nice dark reddish brown color, good head. Chocolate in the aroma and flavor, very malty, could use more hops and/or carbonation to offset the almost, but not quite, excess sweetness.

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