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!

Pretty decent. Gentle malt with very little bitterness. Not hoppy. Relatively smooth but not anything really great.

Poured into a plastic cup at Lantana Oktoberfest. Dark color, small head. Aroma is dark malts, caramel, candy sweetness, bread, and spices. The taste didn’t match the aroma in boldness. Kind of watery and weak flavors. Some maltiness. Medium light body, slight bitter finish.

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."
