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.

A solid dark beer. Aroma is almost offensive, but everything else is really good. Not too heavy but full flavored. -March madness 2014

Bottle. Brown red woody. Rich malty, bit nutty, caramelly, soft leafy nose. Med bodied, smooth, fresh malty bready flavour. Really like the maltyness here. Soft smooth, nutty bready.

Echon (388) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2016
Mahogany. Caramel malt aroma and flavour, and a slightly sweet taste with low bitterness. Overall, a good dunkel. Beautifyl color, but not as tasty as I had hoped.

JorgeLee (1809) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
On tap at the Ayinger pub in Munich. Always a bit lighter than I remember these dunkels, this a reddish mahogany rather than a chestnut brown. White foam. Nicely balanced, sweet but not overly toasty malts, balanced nicely, clean. Solid dunkel.

BuckeyeBoy (6155) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2016
500ml bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a small sand head. Nose is heavy malts pit fruit some and a nice big caramel dough. Taste is more of the nice rich malts dough pit fruit and nutty earth tones.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2016
Aroma; brown malts, dark caramel, grassy leafy hops, floral notes, malted candies, dough, plums n prunes. Look; good beige foam, dark brown red-edged clear body. Taste; dark malts, brown sugar, grassy soft hops, malted candies, chocolate, plum note - leading to a caramel chocolate fruity finish. Feel; nice, smooth, fine carbonation. Overall; making a standard for the dunkels. [50cl.btl 5.0% BB.09.16 #L6011]

The_Osprey (6631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle picked up in London and shared on level 42. As ’Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel’. A top 50 dunkel at the time of drinking. Orange brown, hazy, still, foamy tan head. Aroma is bready, musty old toffee, apple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sweet and bready, light toffee, some toast, demerara. Decent dunkel. (3.4)

anstei (1235) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Tap at Ayinger Bräustüberl. The dark variety of the beautiful Ayinger collection. Still light as a dunkel should be, with some more intense flavours. Nuts, caramel, some liquorice. Balanced, easy, but everything done right. Nice.

ljthiessen (1140) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Mostly clear brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toffee, hints of dark fruit, a little bready. Taste is sweet caramel and light bready malts up front, some dark fruits as well, plum and raisin, hints of coffee. A balanced finish, not too sweet, tasty and drinkable.
