COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark beer existed in Bavaria long before light beer. This was the first type of beer to be brewed at Hofbräuhaus when it was founded. Today, when beer-lovers all over the world talk about dark beer, they usually mean a Munich style beer. Today, Hofbräu Dunkel - the archetypal Bavarian beer - is still as popular as ever. With its alcoholic content of around 5.5% volume and its spicy taste, it’s a refreshing beer that suits all kinds of occasion. A beer in the traditional Munich style!

Dark amber coloured, brownish medium-sized fluffy head, longer lasting; moderate malty nose (traces of caramel, roasted malts, molasses); sweet malty beginning, moderate sweet flavour; quite full bodied; distinctive sweet malty aftertaste, with a tinge of bitterness. A very good Dunkel, pleasant and decent....

"really, not a standout, but a solid well-made malt forward brew that has the ability to hit the spot. dark fruit, roasted sweet malts and a smooth feel. pretty good."

0.5 bottle. Pours a dark copper with a nice beige head. Aroma is chocolate and malts. Taste of cocoa powder, roast grain. A nice dunkel.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Definitely one of my favorite goto beers over the years. Amazing aromas of malts. Nice sweet flavor.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from The Real Ale Shop Newark. Bizarre I have have not had this before. Clear brown colour and lasting beige head. Some mild brown malt. Eady drinking in the mouth. It’s fine. Rather a light dunkel in terms of flavour but it’s fine. Light malt and easy drinking. Fine.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, sparkling dark chestnut body under a creamy, fingerthick off-white head. Nice curtains. There’s a faint touch of cooked vegetables in the aroma, with raisins and prunes, some caramel and a little roasted note. The flavor has a very nice bitterness, keeping the sweetness under control. An easy task actually, as it’s a quite dry beer. Pleasant carbonation level, soft and full-bodied on the palate. Some roasted malts in the back. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a very fine bitterness. Except for the touch of dms in the aroma, a very fine brew. 140921

Gift. Dark translucent brown copper color with small ring of a head and little lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with slight fruity vinous notes. Flavor has sweet candy malts up front and a clean, light caramel finish. Simple and refreshing- okay overall
