LOOK: Poured from the bottle into a 16 oz. shaker glass. Highly clarified, very clear -- I'd call it transparent if it weren't for the color. Light brown, sort of toffee in color. Not as dark as I'd expected. Two fingers of airy, foamy head.

SMELL: A lightly toasted smell. A little bit sweet?

TASTE: Sweeter than I thought. A slight caramel note. Otherwise very straightforward. Everything about this beer seems to be in small moves that come together like a quiet song.

Semi sweet malty goodness. This beer has it all, from the aroma, to taste and finish. Very enjoyable Dunkel. Ayinger nailed the style.

500 ml bottle from Cost Plus. Dark, dark brown. Shows signs of clarity with a big, off-white head. Good lacing. Nose of toasty, fruity malt and yeast. Flavors of bread crust and light caramel with hints of dark fruit, plum and touch of raisin. Hops are hardly noticeable, maybe a touch of grassy spiciness. Residual sweetness produces a fairly heavy body feel. Finishes semi-sweet. A very tasty, yet easy drinking lager beer.

Bottle had at King James Public House Asheville. No freshness date. Served in a goblet.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/4 inch tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Toasty, biscuity malt that's slightly sweet and has a mild yeasty quality to it that suggests dark fruit.

T- Dark bread, toasty malt and the faintest hint of that fruity yeast. Smooth, clean lager finish with just a tinge of oxidation.

M- Slightly creamy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A very easy drinking beer that satisfies one's desire for a sturdy malt presence.
