Deep red-brown color. Excellent showing of head.

Sweet caramelized sugars, bock-y dark fruits, raisin, and dark malts. Bavarian lager authenticity with an intense nose. Even a slight whiff of smoked malt, maybe.

Super malty and rich. Big intense flavors of brown bread, toffee, German mustiness, dark caramel, herbal notes, and minerality. Just a little too sweet.

Medium-light carbonation. Stocky body for a dunkel lager.

On tap at the bier stein the other day.

The beer pours a fairly dark amber color with light lacing and fair head retention. Don't really get a whole lot on the nose initially, but at the beer warmed, I did pick up some nice sweet malt, a light roasty quality and a hint of burnt toast. The flavor profile replicated the nose pretty closely, though thankfully it was a bit more pronounced. Mouthfeel was fairly light, as you might expect, though I wouldn't describe the finish as watery.

Not bad, but considering all the other beers Ayinger makes, it was a bit hard to get too excited about this one.

very nice dunkel with dark fruit and spice notes, olive, very smooth with a bit of bite. hints of cherry and caramel malt. pours light brown, dark amber red orange into a stemmed pilsner glass. aromas aren't very present, just hints of nutmeg, brownsugar, cherry, etc. really well balanced

Smooth Dunkel. Brown carmel color with a foggy appearance. Sweet almost salty scent resembles potato chips. Flavor is sweet but not overbearing and somewhat salty continuing with the potato chip resemblance. Not a lot of bitter or hoppy flavor makes it an easy drink
