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.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2009
...draft at the Melbourne Hofbrau House. In the glass looked a dark reddish brown with a tan head that was mostly lasting. On the nose were roasted malts, caramel, and hints of sweet malt. Mouthfeel was thin, with flavors of roasted malts, and some hints of toffee. Finish was dry, and slightly metallic. There was something missing. I was not impressed, especially by the price.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours translucent brown with a ruby red hue and a light beige head. Very sweet caramel aroma with a hint of candied dates. The flavor is similar to the aroma, sweet caramel with some toffee and dried fruit. Pretty good beer but not as good as the one on tap at the Newport Hofbrauhaus.

SamP01 (556) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2011
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.

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 .
