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.

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!

tightslice (848) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is toasted malts, dark fruits. Taste is light coffee, roasted malts, sweet nuttiness up front and then moves to a clean, light finish. Awesome dunkel and one of the better German beers I’ve had. Ayinger can do no wrong.

teddybeer (3304) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2016

Ritzn (312) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
Dark red brown with medium long lasting beige head. Aroma is dried figs, maybe dates, caramel and syrup. Taste is sweet (but not too sweet) with a little bitterness and very natural carbonation induced sourness. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with dates finish. Overall very nice. Comparable with the doppelbock but less intense, less strong.

hauxe (334) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2016
Pours dark ruby brown from the bottle. Clear, with a frothy tan head that quickly subsides. Aroma has strong caramel and roasted notes with evident toffee. Taste is bittersweet with rich roasted malt flavors. Lots of toffee. Could be a bit more robust, and no exotic notes here, but is still a pleasant sipping companion and quite good for the style. Good stuff.

ilovedarkbeer (2699) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Pours a reddish dark brown color with a bubbly white head. Notes of karo syrup, earth, roasted nuts. Kind of watery.
