3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color cobrizo, amarronado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de tres dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma agradable a caramelo y un toque mínimo de malta tostada. Sabor a malta caramelizada, mínimo y muy suave, con toques de fruto seco. No capto mucha malta tostada ni en aroma ni en sabor. Se bebe y refresca, pero no me aporta nada más. Plana de narices.
