Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Characterised by its firm and fine pored head. Even before the first sip, the beer epicure will register the soft aromas of dark malt carrying caramel and cocoa accents with a nuance of smokiness.

Andechser Export Dunkel is pleasantly tangy with a full, round, malty body. The nuance of quality plain chocolate marries well with the soft bitterness of the smoky undertone.

It concludes on a mild, harmonious note.

Dark brown, nice head and retention, classic.
Smells of roasted malts, toasted nuts, malty and a tiny whif of herbs.
Tastes straight up of dark toasted (not roughly roasted) malts, like dark bread, with some low coffee bitterness. After the malty richness there are a few notes of dry plums and raisin, but not enough to bring a strong fruitiness. Dark spices, cocoa powder, very low cinnamon, but lots of nuttiness (hazelnuts, chestnuts, all roasted). Hops are felt nicely in the finish, bringing a leafy bitterness.
Carbonation is typical, neutral to the flavours.
A good Munich dark, by the book.

4.05/5  rDev +2%

A: Pour is clear brown with a large but a bit soapy beige head. Decent lacings.

S: Smells roasted sweet malt, with some bitter hops. Dark bread, rye. Some chocoalte and even some hay. Faint coffee.

T: Very bready, almost like swedish crisp-bread. Roasted. Well balanced with bitter hops. Faint notes of chocolate. Crisp.

M: Rather thin body, but that's not such a big problem when it comes to this style. Medium strong carbonation, very smooth though. Aftertaste is short but holds nice chocolaty bitterness.

O: Nice and well balanced. This is a nice beer.

From: Worldwidespirits.de
Date: Best by 08/22/2012
Glass: Ayinger willi glass

Pours a >2cm head of light tan bubbles, small in size and fairly dense, with good retention, head lasting over a minute as it settles to a thin cap atop the body of the beer, thicker around the perimeter. Head leaves some splotches of lacing along the sides of the glass. Beer's body is dark amber brown, with light bringing out the reddish amber hues. Body is transparent, with visibly active and substantial carbonation.

Aroma of modest toasted hazelnuts, toasted bread, and very light chocolate. Not bitter, tangy, or detectably acrid, mostly smooth and sweet.

Taste is, upfront, of lightly toasted bread and nuts, with some malt sweetness, with a background of mildly bitter chocolate. Aftertaste is of mild hazelnut-flecked chocolate

Beer is medium bodied, with a slight wateriness around the edges. Carbonation is noticeable, though not stinging on the palate, resulting in an overall mouthfeel being crisp and smooth, very lager-like. Finish is wet, not dry at all.
