Fürst Carl Dunkel

Brewery: Fürst Carl Schlossbrauerei
Style: Dunkles
Color: mahogany

Head: off-white, creamy

Nose: richly malty, caramel, slight roast

Body: medium, fizzy

Palate: balanced, richly malty, coffee, undercurrent of roast and hops

Finish: lingering, semi-dry, bittersweet

Served: on tap at Fürst Carl Bräustüberl

Impression: The beer I’d had years ago in a bottle, not knowing it was from Franconia mostly lives up to the memory. It’s overly carbonated and the CO2 creeps in on what is essentially a very nice Dunkles. It’s got a bit of roast to the malty palate and dries out nicely in the lingering bittersweet finish. Shame it’s poured so poorly.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
