Dark beer was the prodominant beer type in the Munich area up until the second world war. The hard water found in the region played a major part in producing this speciality and Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel is a great example of this.
Incredibly dark with a golden brown gleam when held up to the light. The beer has a malty taste, a warm aroma and summons up a coffee taste sensation when going down. Brewed using five types of malt, two of which are torrified dark and only lightly hopped. It is produced using the traditional double fermentation process.
