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!

Tap. Dark pour with off white head. Smells of dark malts. Tastes sweet with a clean finish. Nice beer to drink out of a stien. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Berry park. Poured a rich dark caramel. Nose was sweet, slightly spicy, a bit musty. Typically thin bodied with small bubbly carbonation. Not much up front a bit sweet. Mostly malty and creamy taste. Finish is bitter. An easy drinker with more flavor than most. But in the end it’s really not that easy for me to drink.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle @ home . Versata in un bicchiere da lager, sprigiona un bel profumo di malto tostato e di cacao amaro. La schiuma è abbastanza fine, compatta e di color nocciola. la birra è marrone con riflessi ruggine, limpida, forse solo una lievissima velatura.Amara, ha una decisa nota tostata, che ricorda la frutta secca, ma anche il dolce del malto si lascia sentire. Il corpo è debole, molto meno pastoso di quanto mi aspettassi. estremamente rinfrescante grazie al sentore di luppolo , presente ma poco accennato il gusto di cereale. Molto buona e di facile beva.

Very sweet. Dark. Sour. Something just doesn’t fit. It kind of coats the tongue and that’s not good. Looks better than it tastes.

pours clear redish brown with a thin white head and some lacing. the first wave of aroma was rather skunky and a very lagerish aroma of sour pale malt persists. taste is better with some dark malt coming through but the body is thin and there’s little yeast flavor. the hops are apparent after a moment. finishes light but mildly warming. I’ll attribute the bad aroma to the green bottle it comes in but other than that, this is a generally unremarkable beer.

Tap at beerhall. An adequate dunkel but certainly not one of the best available in Munuch. The attraction of HB is the venue not the beer.

Draft at Old Europe in DC- A dark brown beer with a big thick white head. Moderate smoke, malty aroma. A nut, mild chocolate flavor with a bready side. I really enjoyed this beer.
