This is a dark amber lager made in the world famous brewing area around Bamberg, Germany. They are characterized by their smooth malty flavor. The Franconian version differs from the dark lagers of Bavaria by being slightly stronger and drier. Dunkels have a distinctive malty flavor that comes from a special brewing technique called decoction mashing. We are reviving the Altfränkisches Dunkel Bier from the Hümmer Brauerei in Breitengüßbach, the brewery whose brewhouse now resides in Denver, Colorado at Prost Brewing.

12oz can poured into a Lager Glass at 41°. Color is a deep brown with a hint of red and light carbonation and a thin off white head. Aroma is a mellow roasted malt scent. It has a lighter medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light giving a mild roasted malt and a hint of toffee with a very mellow bitterness. After taste is clean and slightly dry. Overall its a nice little brew, very easy drinking but a little light on the flavor.

Tap at the brewery. Brown with orange tints. Clear, with a low head. Light chocolate nose, caramel, bread. Light malty sweetness, bready, with chocolate and caramel, raisins. Not overly sweet. Decent stuff.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin beige head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, wood, bourbon and vanilla. Similar aroma. Has a smooth, velvety body with a warming finish. Quite excellent

Aroma is malts, fruit and bread/brown bread. The flavor is brown bread, fruit, slight tobacco, very slightly chemical and a mildly/smooth finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3686) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at a beer store in COS. The aroma on this is great. Some floral, some leather, and some licorice. Light roast, too. Transparent light mahogany color with a medium light tan head present. Starts with a sweet, cocoa like maltiness, but not too sweet. Light roasts in the middle. Finishes with a bit of a tannic character, but really chewy, malty, and good.

12 oz. bottle. Dark, amber brown, with a small, foamy, beige head. Aroma is dark bread, pumpernickel, light cloves, caramel, and a hint of sweet cherries. Sweet and malty, with a light, piney, hop kick. Light to medium body, a little chalky, syrupy, and a clingy, bitter aftertaste. This is a a surprisingly complex, aromatic, and tasty dunkel. Good maltiness and yeast character.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Very traditional. Flavors were bold and malty. Aroma was a little light but the flavor was biscuity and slightly dry and earthy. Soft brown color with a full body and nice head.

Slightly hazy brown with a thin head. Aroma is a bit funky...footy...touch toasty. Too footy, sewagey. Altfrankisch? Get over yourself.

Had on tap at Prost Brewery. Thinner than expected. Pretty much no aroma, but nice flavor. Not as full bodied as I hoped, but with a nice finish. Not a complex beer, but good tasting
