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!

Brownish/reddish body with a creamy head. No lacing and kind of thin looking. Smell is of caramel, raisins, and tons of malt. Taste was malty all the way through but left a slight bitter taste on the end. I would of liked more bitter to balance the sweet but still a pretty good beer.

tap @ OTH. Pours brown, beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, some dark fruits coming across as strong and crystal malts. Flavor, malty, dark fruits; raisins, figs, dark malts, with light caramel, roasted finish. For a mass produced German beer, this is a fine and easy to drink beer fileld with good flavors.

Tmoney99 (10816) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate dark toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with an above average version of this style.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Pours a dark brown/amber color with a beige head. Slightly roasted, sweat aroma. Taste was for me at least a little metallic and a little watery. It really kind of let me down. There were some roasted malts and caramel notes, but ultimately, this was not a very fun beer to drink for me.
