The Hofbräuhaus dunkle is a very smooth dark beer. The aroma is faint but the taste is great I detect a hint of molasses which gives the beer a sweet taste Overall I think this is a good beer and would recommend it to everyone

Mass at the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Very dark brown with a nice foamy head and served in a glass HB glass. This looked good, and smelt pretty good too, though dominated by the malt. A drinkable beer in interesting surroundings, but ultimately a bit plain.
