Ayinger's Altbairisch Dunkel poured a crystal clear caramel brown with quite a few tiny rising carbonation bubbles. A 2 finger head formed on the pour and then receded to a half finger of frothy tan head. Leaves moderate lacing after each sip.

Smells of mouthwatering toasted grains and a very solid caramel backbone. A splash of cream is in the mix as well. This is a hearty smelling brew. I can pull out a very small amount of hops if I try hard enough.

Taste is big on bread dough. The caramel comes through rich and slightly sweet. Nice lightly toasted grain flavor compliments things nicely. Mild creaminess comes through as well.

Medium bodied and perfectly creamy. Velvety smooth mouthfeel.

This is a very easy drinker. I could definately se myself sipping on these all night long with no problem. Smooth and creamy without being filling.

Another winner from Ayinger. I haven't tried one of their offerings yet that I haven't truly enjoyed. Very good beer.
