COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Up until the Second World War, dark beer was the predominant beer type in the Munich area. The hard water found in the region played a special role in producing this specialty. In his book “Beer International”, the world-renowned English beer writer, Michael Jackson, accurately describes the Ayinger “Altbairisch Dunkel” as: “A good example of its kind. Impenetrably dark with a golden-brown gleam when held up to the light, and with a warm aroma and malty taste, while summoning up coffee taste sensations on going down. It is brewed from five types of malt (two of which are torrified dark), and it is only lightly hopped.” It is produced using the traditional double fermentation process.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2020 Dark brown with a lovely beige head. Aroma is predominantly malt hints of coffee and toffee, but the taste is neither roasty nor sweet. Soft mouthfeel. Very nice.

ludos68 (116) - - MAY 29, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2020 Birra ambrato scuro con schiuma beige, fine, pannosa e persistente. Aromi di caramello, biscotto, lievi note di orzo e caffè dominano il naso. In bocca si ritrovano le stesse note che al naso su un corpo snello. Finale leggermente amaro. Birra solida e piacevolissima da bere.

Myonlyvice (633) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2020 Clear dark amber with a medium small off white head. Aroma: Malt, toasted bread, hay, a bit of coffee and caramel. Taste: Malty sweetness with a moderate herbal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and clear. Very nice like all Ayinger beers I have tried!

3.3
vladeath (1336) - RUSSIA - MAR 28, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2020 Dark amber (chestnut) color with a thin foam. Nose. Roasted Malt, Bread, Dried Fruits and Caramel. Taste. Lightly sweet, fried, crust of brown bread. bitter dry. The aftertaste is fried malt, dryness and bread. Actually a great balanced Dunkel pattern.

3.5
Cybercat (8966) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2020 Pours clear sepia with a thick and lasting buff head. Aroma provides caramel, roasted malt, subtle spice and woody notes. Flavor yields roast malt, caramel, earthy, subtle clove and woody hops. Texture features good body and perky fizz. Come to Bavaria's dark side.

2.4
Goldbarren (3467) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 11, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2020 Die Ayinger-Brauerei ist mir eigentlich sehr sympatisch und die hellen und Weizenbiere finde ich äußerst geschmackvoll. Das Dunkle kann mich nicht zu solchen Begeisterungsstürmen hinreißen. Es ist schon ok mit seinen malzigen Tönen, aber wirklich ausgewogen ifinde ich es nicht.

3.8
one51 (811) - - JAN 24, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2020 On tap at Ayinger am Platzl with some Wildschwein Pflanzerl. Dark brown with decent fine head. Roasty nose with dark caramel hints. Flavor is fantastic with caramel and lightly-bitter toasty grains, not overly sweet, good smooth hop bitter finish. Classic example of style.

3.4
Badylatko (339) - POLAND - JAN 9, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2020 Piana koloru jasnego beżu, wybiła spora, ale też i szybko się redukowała, złożona z drobnych i średnich pęcherzy, zostawiła lekki ślad na szkle, na koniec pozostała w niewielkiej warstwie na powierzchni. Kolor bardzo ciemnego brązu, trunek prześwitujący. Zapach słodu, chleba razowego, karmelu, orzechów, siana. Smak słodu, karmelu, lekko palonych, kawy i czekolady, w tle goryczka chmielowa, czuć przyprawy, ale też z czasem jakby zgniliznę. Poza tym jednym jest spoko.
