I am new to the Dunkel variety (from what I have read, this is a Munich style), as well as to Frankenmuth. A friend brought this to my Super Bowl party, which annoyed me because he usually brings me a nice new IPA or APA I have never tried before.

The brew looks great, a nice brown color. The smell is great as well, not too strong or too weak. The same can be said of the taste, it does not over or underwhelm you.

If I can find more Dunkels like this, I will definitely move this style into my top 5.

Bought a variety pack at Wegmans in Collegeville PA.

Poured into a beer mug. Minimal head, maybe 2 inches off white, small lacing.

Scents of breadiness and molasses, maybe slight cherry.

Great balanced Dunkel, I am highly impressed with the flavor variety, caramel, toasted breads, herbs and little dryness to balance the flavor.

Medium mouthfeel and no evident alcohol taste.

As the first of the variety pack I've had, I am liking this, it's something I would definitely drink again.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #54 (July 2011):

The second-oldest brewery in the US is brewing again. Dark chestnut-hued brew, bordering on black. Lacing dresses the glass very well. Fresh-toasted dark bread flaunts the malt aroma; very clean. Strong malt presence here—even with it teetering on the dry side, there are a lot of complex layers that peel away, sip after sip. Heavy toasted taste eventually calms down with an even malt flavor. Mild hopping is just enough to keep the malt in check. Very good drinking—spot-on for style, and on par with its authentic German counterparts.
