COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark in color, malty nose, generous flavor; yet with a clean, hoppy finish, Hacker-Pschorr Alt Munich Dark is the essence of dark beers.

500ml flip-top bottle. Mindestine haltbar bis Ende: 01/12. It has a very nice pour It is a deep reddish/orangeish brown color with a nice off-white/tanish head that sticks for a bit then leaves some decent lacing. The smell is decisively sweeter than most Dunkels. It has a noticeable caramel presence, flowery hops, dough, honey, and a hint of fruitiness. It smells fresh, and surprisingly rich. The flavor cuts back on the sweetness, instead bringing an abnormally high roastiness for the style to the plate. It is still subtle like a munich dunkel should be. It has notes of roasted malt, caramel, bread, mineral water, and some herbal hops that give away nice bitterness in the finish. It really isn’t that sweet at all after a few sips, but rather refreshing. The roastiness also leaves pretty quickly when you drink it. It basically turns into a slightly roastier and more bitter Munich Helles lager, which is what the Munich dunkel should be. This is one that you just salivate for on a hot summer day.

On tap at the Hacker-Pschorr biergarten and restaurant in Regensburg. Easily the best Dunkel I’ve sampled yet. Aroma is subtle, only light hop presence, light roast, and hints of caramel. Subdued flavor, but very refreshing. Somewhat complex...different qualities emerge and vanish from the aroma. Very smooth. Not too sweet, full-bodied but light and easy to drink. Really enjoyable and I would gladly drink again.

Damn! This brew’s terrific! Sweet aroma. Chocolatey in appearance. I could just sit and drink this all day. A typically delicious munich dunkel-style beer that really shouldn’t be so hard to find. A roasty, yet sweet malt flavor that’s not thick or excessively heavy.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2002
Dark copper color with a tall shimmering tan head. Creamy malt aroma. Creamy malt feel throughout with a touch of spice(cinnamon). Somewhat syrupy body that exudes malt. I love malty beers adn this is one.

This is my favorite beer. almost as roasty a and strong as a schwarzbier. Good robust malt character with balanced hops and defining crispness.

A nicely malty and flavorful brew. Wonderful hints of chocolate make this a great after dinner beer - and indeed I enjoyed it with Apple Strudel after a full meal of knackwurst and saurkraut. From what I’ve read, however, alts are more traditional hoppy. This was more like a Munich Dark - so the term ’Alt’ throws me off somewhat.

Yap at Zum Schneider. Ruby brown, clear, tan head. Bready aroma. Malty Munich malt flavor. Malty finish. Really good example of a dunkel.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2006
I liked this one. It pours nice brown with thick off-white head. Full flavor and thick, creamy body. Has nice malty scent, thick chewy malt flavor, a touch of caramel sweetness, and a balancing slighty dry finish with a drop of cinnamon spicyness. Very beautiful lager, satisfying, yet highly drinkable.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a medium brown color with about half an inch of foam. Moderate head retention, spotty lacing. Sweetish aroma of caramel malt and a touch of honey. Tasty beer, with chocolate and caramel malt, nicely balanced with a moderate hop presence. A little drier in the finish, with a slightly more pronounced hop tang. Not quite medium body, good carbonation.
