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!

Draught at Wiener Hofbräuhaus. Tastier than the Helles. But still no sensation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1149) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Color coca cola, clara. Espuma poco consistente y menos abundante de lo normal para el estilo. Aroma a malta tostada. En boca escaso cuerpo y bastante carbonatada. Mantiene el sabor a malta. Floja. Defrauda.

Tra le versioni dunkel weisse in bottiglia che si trovano al supermercato è tra le migliori. È una birra molto piacevoli da bersi.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a thin off white head. Aroma is skunked unfortunately but some dark fruit comes through. Taste follows and adds toffee and nuttiness. Slick creamy mouthfeel. Would have enjoyed this quite a bit if the green glass hadn’t ruined it.

czar (5566) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
on tap at bier markt, ottawa. unclear light brown pour, orange tint, small off-white head, minimal retention/lacing. spicy toasted nuts and caramel, fruity coffee berries, some dirt, some sweetness - maple syrup, grass, pepper, hint of cardboard. light carbonation, light body, semi-sweet and peppery-herbal finish. barely o-k and it’s not even a dusty old shelf leftover in a shady beer store.

pras (528) - Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2015
This was a bit too boozy for me. Poured dark brown, with a malty nose. Flavor was malt, and boozy. Not my favorite.

Sjohnh (427) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Woody brown / red colour - nice and clear with a small but lasting frothy white head. Medium body and carb. Aroma isn’t strong but there is a nice hint of spice and pepper. Strong malt presence in the taste giving toffee and the yeast brings through some spice. Nice and drinkable.

A general flavor mass produced beer. Good balance but a boring beer in general. But ok when free. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
