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!

Keg at Casc Aberdeen. Copper/ amber coloured pour with a short lived cream head. Nose is formed of wet grains, rye bread, somewhat sweet unrefined sugars and toffee apple. Flavour is pretty dull, rye bread, stale grains and chalk. Palate is slightly thin, moderate carbonation. Semi sweet. Some decent dried fruits in the finish.

Hallstein (126) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
The aroma is like a helles. Very light, grainy and dry with some slight lager-yeast sulfur notes. Maybe some caramel on the nose as well. The flavor is roasty, but light with flavors of chocolate, coffee, caramel, dried malt, crackers, biscuits with a slight floral note. This beer was way more delicious than i thought it would be!
