Dark and clear. A lot of layers and they all work very well together. Roasty, chocolate, and coffee. Smooth. Caramelized and malty.
On tap. Pleasant red bronze color, good slightly yellowish foam. Aroma: sweet and pleasant, caramel and roasted malt tones, dried fruits, bread. Taste: a bit sweet, malts, caramel, bread with dried fruits, slightly jam, velvety, light hint of hops. AndyW68 (1541) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Reddish brown old copper pour with off white to tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and molasses with a hint of iron. Taste is malty caramel, sweet up front, a light fade and then the sweetmalt cones back. Very enjoyable. 17Beer (343) - 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. Heidelbeer (38) - 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!

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.
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. Svartvit (516) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017
Bottle shared at Maakun’s. Pours an amber with an off-white head. Dark malts, caramel, wet bread. Not my thing. sjogro (3954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017
Bottle shared at Maakun’s, "Don’t take that THT away from me"-tasting. Cola colored, no head. Sweet roasted malts, toffee, chestnut. Moderate sweet and bitter. About medium body, average carbonation. Bittersweet roasty tail. Gurthnar (5816) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2017
Tap at Salon piva. Rather amber than dark and the flavours correspond to the colour - only slightly more malty complexity than in the base Hell, with light caramel impression and slightly more body as well. However the beer remains centered on being sessionable, easy drinking. Good.
