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.

hman43 (1341) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2017 It pours deep copper with a slightly off white head. It has moderately low head retention. Very good clarity. IT has aromas of bread crusts, low nuts, low chocolate, and caramel. There are rich malt flavors as the balance is towards the malts from start to finish. The flavors are dominated by the bread crusts and caramel (Maillard) with the nuts, chocolate, spicy hops, and roast in the background. It is very clean. It has a medium body with moderate carbonation that is ever so slightly creamy. Overall, this is a rich malty delightful lager with subtle hints of hops and esters throughout the taste.

luttonm (5448) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Short creamy tan head. Dark, bright, clear red brown. Nice deep, warm roasted malt. Lovely fruit and tannin. Smooth, round warm malt base, with just a hint of sharpness that cuts through at finish. Fantastic, platonic balance. Nice.

graziano85 (447) - 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 (471) - 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 (1566) - 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.

GreenCat (73) - SLOVENIA - JAN 29, 2017
0,5l bottle. Pours crystal clear copper with frothy tan head. Aroma is malt, some roast and caramel notes. Flavor is rich malty, caramel, light dry fruit notes, mild roast and spicy hop finish, mild lingering bitterness. Body is medium texture almost creamy. Light carbonation. Rich malty but still surprisingly drinkable beer.

500 ml bottle pours clean and clear reddish brown with a tan or off white head. Aroma is faint but what I can detect is bready malts. Taste is brown bread, smoked malts, toast. Very good beer.

Bottle - the pour is a clear dark brown like weak coffee and a thin beige head. Mild aroma of barley, ripe fruit, nuttiness, tea and hearty bread. Smooth earthy flavors of light roasted grain, fall fruit, toasted bread, watery coffee and nuts.
