4.09/5  rDev +3.5%

A: Perfect pour into a Hofbrau Munchen stein. Irish setter red/grade a maple amber in color. 2 finger moussey, overflowing head. Stays around awhile, no lacing.

S: Sweet toffee and crusty brown bread malt. Straightforward.

M: Medium-light body. Firm and dry stout like. Moderately high carbonation.

T: Good and clean Munich malt taste. Complex breadiness, mostly brown bread and sweet nutty flavors-flax and millet. Mild caramel, toffee, and ginger. Moderately sweet. Just enough hops to hold it in check at the end. Light bitter, raw water chestnut finish. Carbonation introduces a restrained level of minerality. Lasting sensation of chocolate and cherries.

3.85/5  rDev -2.5%

A: Dark brown beer with about a quarter inch of thick foam.
S: Rich bready aroma, slightly sweet, little hint of caramel.
T: Less sweet in the flavor, with crusty bread malt dominating. There seems to be a little roast as well. Hops aren't really detectable apart from moderate bitterness, which with the slight roast dries out the finish.
M: Somewhat light, with neutral texture.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear mahogany color with a one finger head just off white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of caramel and brown sugar with a bit of a roasted malt aroma. Some light chocolate smells as well as some molasses and plum are there as well. Overall the aroma is rather sweet.

Taste – The taste begins with a lightly roasted and toasted bready flavor with some sweeter notes of a fruity nature with some plum and cherry. As the taste advances, a caramel and molasses sweetness joins the flavor all while some flavors of a light coffee and chocolate come to the tongue. Some more grainy flavors as well as some more roasted flavors come to the tongue after the cocoa and coffee. At the same time, a bit of an earthy and herbal hop come to the tongue, and in the end, mix with the sweeter and roasted flavors nicely to leave a smooth, lightly toasted, and sweeter flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The average carbonation and body are rather a nice bled for the darker but yet very drinkable nature of the brew.

Overall – For a dunkel lager this is on the slightly sweeter side, but very drinkable and quite enjoyable. A rather good easy drinking darker lager.

On tap at McNellie's OKC. Pours a deep reddish brown with a creamy off-white head. Good lacing that cascades down the glass. Smells of malt, caramel and toffee. Taste follows the nose, along with a bit of toasted grain. Medium mouth that's very smooth. Quite a drinkable dunkel.

4.41/5  rDev +11.6%

16.9 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a clear, dark brown with ruby undertones. A medium sized tan head settles into a quarter inch thick with faint lacing.

Smell is of dark roasted malt, mocha, caramel, toffee.

Taste is heavy on roasted malt up front with notes of toffee and chocolate in the middle and then finishing with mocha and a faint amount of hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, and creamy.

Overall, a great dunkel, Ayinger never disappoints.
