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.

Dark and clear. A lot of layers and they all work very well together. Roasty, chocolate, and coffee. Smooth. Caramelized and malty.

From the bottle the pour is dark auburn in color, the aromas are light roasting, vanilla and toffee, taste is Carmel roasted malts, a great dunkle

loubar (114) - Los Gatos, California, USA - JAN 4, 2015
500 ml bottle from Cost Plus. Dark, dark brown. Shows signs of clarity with a big, fluffy, nearly off-white head. Good lacing. Nose of toasty, fruity malt and yeast. If you like malt, this one is for you. Bready and nutty with hints of dark fruit, plum, fig and touch of raisin are vaguely present to add complexity. Hops are hardly noticeable, maybe a touch of grassy spiciness to help balance the malt bomb. Residual sweetness produces a fairly heavy body feel. Finishes semi-sweet. A good, easy drinking lager beer.

Bork (355) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Malty beverage with lots of molasses on the nose. Rather thin body and all in all a little too watery. Drinkable but not entirely successful.

The most overrated beer in the world? Nowhere near to it’s 100 style rating. Very typical yet quite good and nicely balanced dunkel. Nothing special, good social drink.

MichaelAwesome (4750) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Was hieran komplex sein soll, das ist mir nicht ganz bewusst, denn im Grunde spielt das Bier hier nur mit Malz und ein paar Röstaromen. Der Geschmack ist recht langweilig und muffig. Vielleicht kann ein Dunkel eben kein gutes Piwo werden, nicht mal wenn es von den Ayinger Jungs kommt.

McTapps (4756) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from Getränkemarkt Fristo in Bamberg. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste of roasted malt, old chocolat, leaves, woods, plums and barley. Malty finish. Solid beer, yet nothing very special or enjoyable.

Erzengel (3978) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
** Old rating, 0,5l crown-top-bottle, 2006. Mild-weiches, karamellig-malziges Bier. Nicht zu viel Herbe spürbar, tief und malzig-würzig. Mittellanger, malzig-leicht süßlicher Nachgeschmack. lecker!

Andy_ (804) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2014
500 ml bottle
Copper to mahogany colored clear beer with little blonde head. Aroma has herbs, toffee, loafy bread and grass. Flavor has sweet malts, toffee, grass and some dark fruits. Palate is medium full with quite strong carbonation. Finish has medium long bitterness, lasting quite long. Aftertaste has herbs, chocolaty sweetness and malts. A decent dunkel, sweet and herbal.
