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.

17Beer (355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Malt and dark bread smells. Pours a nice brown with a fine white head. Flavors of biscuits and pumpernickel. Medium carbonation and a soft malty finish. Very drinkable and not heavy.

3.3
Heidelbeer (41) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2017
Head is medium sized, beige in color, creamy in consistence and rather quickly disappearing. Beer is clear copper red brown. Aroma is medium intense, very malty, caramel and a bit metallic. Taste is averagely sweet with a low of malt and burnt sugar. Finish is medium intense after sweet caramel and bitter balancing hop with an average long duration. Texture is creamy with a soft carbonation. In overall I miss a certain complexity but this beer is very round, easy to drink and without any flaws. Good one!

Saeglopur (2178) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 2, 2017
Draught at Ayingers Speis und Trank, Munich.
Copper, clear body, witha big, fluffy, rocky, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of caramel, toast, dark berries, bread, cocoa, some grains, some flowers.
Tastes pretty similar, with some more honey.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes roasty, a bit dry, a bit sweet, toasty, floral, with grains, some cocoa.

Nice one. Well balanced, with enough toasty notes, side by side with smooth, sweet notes. Quite light bodied, fresh to drink. Not among my favourite Ayinger beers, but another very good style example.

Maakun (5600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear amber with beige head. Some caramel, brown bread, quite malty, a touch of cocoa. After the malts there’s a light grassy and slight metallic finish. Medium sweet and light bitter. Just medium bodied with slight dry feel.
