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.

tfontana (932) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is clear red with slight orange, trace sparkle, two-finger width foamy beige head with fair retention and soapy lacing. Aroma is light fruit, yeast, malts, earth. Taste is European/noble hops, light roasted malt, nuts. Palate is medium bodied with slick texture, lively carbonation and mostly sweet but dry finish. Overall, aroma and taste are muted compared to the usual American beers I have, but still good.

graziano85 (457) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2017
Deep brown/copper color, clean, with a lightly beige compact head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, bread crust. Taste is nutty, caramel, roasted malts. Not too sweet, nice balanced bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation, very easy too drink. Very enjoyable. Whatever style they make, Ayinger once again revealed to be always between the bests. This is one of the best dunkels on the market in my opinion.

Jabic (529) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Ar: Toasted malt, herbal hops; slight oxidation; light bread crust and hay. Ap: Crystal-clear amber-brown; large light tan head with amazing retention, leaves a merengue-like cap of thick foam with beautiful chunks of lacing along the side of the glass. T: Clean bread crust; some light red apple flavor; toasted malt and fresh bread linger in the palate; low bitterness, very little hop flavor, just a bit herbal. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A clean, toasty German lager; a lot of nice flavors, and a spectacular-looking appearance; could use a bit more malt character to really help it pop, but overall quite drinkable and pleasant.

ordybill (1700) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a brown colored beer with an orange tint with a large white head. The aroma is sweet malt. The taste follows the nose but with a the additional taste of bread. An excellent beer.
