The alcohol is overwhelming for this 9%. Very strong to the initial taste. Not Straight to Ale’s best brew by any means

Bottle thanks to beerandblues2. Poured a semi-clear dark brown color with a nice caramel note to it. Smooth, sweet. Pretty tasty. Enjoyed this one a lot. Caramel notes, touch of yeast in there. Alcohol is there, but there isn’t a burn.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber brown. Not much head or lacing. Taste is dark cherry, woodsy, with a bit of sourness. Sweet finish. Pleasant surprise - ratings seem low on this one.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
651mL thanks to beerandblues2. Pours clear deep maroon. Lower beige foam. Nose is sharp cedar wood/barrel, dark cherry, cherry juice box. Taste is peppery, cherry juice box, mild spicy cedar. Juicy, sugary body. Finish is a tad cloying with dark cherry soda.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by brew3crew. Clear brown color, lightly red. Good thin light khaki head. Couple loose dots of lace. Big dark fruity, cherry aroma. Some light wood. Bigger body. Very light carbonation. Sweeter taste. Very light tartness. Alright, kind of too-rich doppelbock. The cherry aroma is pretty good, though

b3shine (5850) - Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bomber to snifter (shared by brew3crew). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent dark caramel with beige head that dissipatew into sticky lacing. Smells of chocolate and caramel with a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a touch of sourness. Decent on the palate. Alright, but not what I expected.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bomber. Poured clear, reddish-amber with a short beige head. The aroma picked up odd sour-ish fruit skins and leathery funk with some fruit and sweet caramel beneath.. weird. The flavor found vinegary-metallic sourness on the tip of the tongue with toasty caramel and molasses beneath.. tangy, peppery warm finish. Medium-bodied and more sour than it should’ve been on the palate.. this didn’t work so well.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Deep mahogany with a long lasting tan head. Nutty malt aroma, some alcohol. The flavor is lightly malty with a light sourness in the finish. A bit washy and thin

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2013
650 ml. Clear, deep copper-mahogany with a lasting spit of foam. Nose is toffee, sour cherry and booze. Taste is lager yeast, dark bread, toffee, toasted walnut, dark cherries and (surprisingly) only a nice touch of booze. Medium-heavy body is sweet, but not quite cloying. Almost slick mouthfeel has a smooth fine carbonation and a slight astringency on the wooden-yeasty finish which help keep the sweetness in check. Interesting take on the style that seems only Ayinger can brew really well.
