Had the Franconia dunkel on tap at the local Whole Foods. This is the first Franconia beer that I have tasted and I must admit that I was impressed. It was very smooth with lots of malty sweetness and a nice chocolate flavor that was pleasant and not overpowering. One of the better dunkels that I have had.

Served on tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX.

A: Pours a lovely clear dark brown with a thin light tan head. There is little head retention but moderate amounts of lacing.

S: Moderate amounts of burnt and roasted malts with hints of caramel. Very light in flavor overall.

T: Roasted and burnt malts dominate with hints of caramel. There is a slight bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing, not as heavy as some beers in this style. Nice flavors and a wonderful appearance. Would pair very nicely with Texas BBQ brisket.

Serving type: on-tap

A very dark brown in appearance with a thin tan head. Smells lightly of toasted grain. Taste is initially sweet coffee flavor followed by a woody mellow finish. Decent mouthfeel, low carbonation. Overall an excellent dunkel, I would certainly get this again.
