Prost Dunkel

What the brewers say

“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.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Toasty and nutty with hints of raisin. Very pleasant and inviting.”

Flavor: “Medium toast, light caramel sweetness. Subtle minty hops flavor. Balance tips mostly to malt with toffee and raisin. The finish is caramel-

focused and dry, with a bit of toasted walnut astringency.”

Overall: “Pleasant chewiness and tons of malt aroma. Good malt complexity that has subtle hints of dried fruit without being overpowering. The overall dryness keeps the malt in check. Very solid. Hits the style on the nose.”
