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!

Roasted cereals, caramel aroma. Caramel malt flavor, mild plum, coffee beans, clean finish. A decent dunkel without being exceptional, maybe a tad too light in texture.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2010
A dark amber color pour with a bug lasting offwhite foamy head , leaving lots of spotty lacing ,lively carbonation . Aroma of dry caramel malt grain , toasty with some molasses, toffee ,and a wheat type tang .Flavor is dry and nutty with caramel and molasses, suprisingly complex, some earthy hops , a very slight metallic hint , probably from the carbonation, gets much better as it warms .Light body with a slightly dry but crisp and clean mouthfeel , short roasty finish , very drinkable and very good. This was all in all a great beer .

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle (355ml). Poured dark bronze with a good sized, dense, frothy, lightly tanned head which was average lasting. Aroma was of rich toffee malts with caramelized dates, muscatels, plums, chocolate, yeasty notes, dust and some hints of cola in the back. Flavour was a moderate bitterness with toffee malts, raisins, currents, dates, light notes of cola, touch of chocolate, hints of nuts and a dry finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry almost creamy mouthfeel and a decent finish. Just seemed a touch to thin.

Pours a deep clear amber with a nice tan head malt, some bread and yeast. Taste is caramel malt, toasted barley, some light bitterness. Has a nice medium body, with moderate cabonation. Finish is dominated by caramel malt, some toasted barley and light hops. Overall a good easy drinking brew.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Slight sweet dark raisins on the nose. Cola colored with small head. Malty, good balance, but action disappears quickly. Decent mouth feel, but finishes a little thin. All characteristics got a little better as it warmed up. It was enjoyable, but could use a little more complexity.

On tap in Hahndorf at Hahndorf Inn. Light brown colour, good aroma of some light chocolate with a good, but light fruity esters. Light palate but very drinkable. This is a good beer, but nothing to really write home about, went well with my chicken parmy though!
