Dampfbier is an old style of beer from the Bavarian Forest, southern Germany, near the Czech border.

It is an all-barley ale, usually deep golden to amber in color, with a unique feature: It is warm-fermented with Hefeweizen yeast at a temperature above 70°F, which gives the beer a slightly phenolic aftertaste.
