Altfränkisches Dunkel is a traditional beer style of Franken, in northeastern Bavaria. It is dark in color with full malty flavors and sweetness balanced by spicy Hallertauer hops.

Hazy deep brown/plum hue. Sweet dark fruit nose. Smooth, velvet body, plum, kalamata olive, lively, yeasty, finishing effervescent and almost dry. Very nice.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Hazy orange caramel - color and flavor. Nice dunkel - medium thick, full malt flavors, not overly sweet, a very quiet hop presence in the background. Tasty!

jaymobrown (1840) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Hazy murky brown color with medium head. Heavy malt, ginger bread. Tastes a lot like Christmas -- if it could have an actual taste this would be like drinking a whole pint of Christmas. Nutty and malty with the sweetess touch of warmth.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Dark amber in color. Roasted chestnut aroma with notes of grassy hops. Rich and nutty with some peated scotch ale-like malts in the middle. Dry, nutty and flowery at the end, but the sweet malt taste lingers.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Big toffee and caramel aroma. Rich copper body, creamy tan head, nicely carbonated. Flavor is toffee, prune, caramel, and bready, with an almost toasted feel in the aftertaste. Not as malty as a good doppelbock, but with similar character. A good European session-style beer.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Pours a ruby copper brown with a good sized tan head. Aroma is of a standard malty German lager with some acidity. Body is bready, sweet and earthy with a dry mellow finish. This is a decent beer, but nothing spectacular. A good example of the style.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Light brown, not mch head. Nose is malty, hops are definitely noticeable. Malts predominate with the usual caramel tones, but held back by the sweetness. Hops definitely assert themselves at the end, some good bitterness. Lacks body, is a bit thin in the middle, could use to be a bit stickier.

guzzler67 (1666) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Very attractive medium brown, hazy appearance. Nice off-white head. Malty, spicy aroma. Toasted malts blended with a butter toffee taste to leave a well- rounded overall impression.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Highly carbonated brew.Nearly no head,what was there faded into nothingness fast.Nice color,light amber to some what brown.Malty sweet aroma slightly spicy some hints of yeast as well.Malty taste and i think i can even detect the alcohol in this one.It doesn't seem possible at 5.5% but its there.Slightly sweet,with a mild bitterness at the end but it doesn't last long all in all an ok beer,but kind of pricey for what you get.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Dark amber color with a small bubbled tan head. Sweet malt aroma, thin mouthfeel. Ends a bit weak.
