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.

Bottle from Kenny Road Market, poured into mug. Pours a clear brown color with an appealing beige head. Ayinger certainly knows how to make a good looking beer. Aroma is sweet, full of toffee, nuts, and malt. Flavor contains notes of dark fruit along with the elements carried over from the aroma. Good stuff.

Smooth and easy drinking, not super interesting however. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a thick tan head. Smells of malt and maybe a bit of cherry. Taste is malty, not very creamy, and a slightly roasty finish. Had in the bottle.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear amber brown color with large creamy light brown head, fair lacing and soft visible carobonation. Aroma of caramel malt, dandelions, vegetables, herbal hops with mild chocolate notes. Taste starts very refreshing, while following is moderate sweet toasted malt with toffee flavour and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Another fabulous brew from Ayinger...

Has a nutty aroma and flavor with a clear dark caramel brown color. Good foamy persistent head. An excellent dunkel.

The aroma on this beer is weak. There is some perceptible malt but overall it is the one weak point in the beer. The beer is wonderful in the mouth. Light yet some malt sweetness. The balance is also observed in the taste which is well balanced between good caramel malt and fine noble hops.

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

bcBelgianbrew (79) - , British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours dark brown-amber. Big head fully diminishes. Delicate carbonation. Intricate lacing. Malty aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel. Refreshing at room temp. Delightful silage aftertaste. Earthy. Easy drinking. I wasn't sure what to expect. Serendipitous experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured with light on color, dense frothy 2" head, bread aroma with some caramel notes. Smooth malt-forward taste with toasty Munich character predominant. Light-medium body, finishes clean. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a rich maltiness with hints of caramel. Quite sweet. Taste is a sweet maltiness up front that finishes pretty smooth. Appearance is a dark amber with a head that retains fairly.
