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!

The aroma is sweet toasted cereal grains, chocolate, and caramel. The appearance is red brown with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma with more bitterness than expected but its far from being really bitter. The palate is thin but not bad. This is a good Dunkel.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a reddish-brown color with a light tan head. Aroma of malts, fruit and toffee. Has a roasted coffee kind of flavor in addition to forementioned aromas. Fairly light bodied. Pretty easy on the palate.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Pours a bright brownish amber with a generous lasting off-white head. Very pretty to look at. The nose has a rich maltiness I find quite enticing. Notes of bread and hay with grassy hop hints to it. The flavor is refreshing just a little bit sweet. Though not particularly complex, it is very dry, crisp, easy to drink, and very enjoyable. Perhaps this beer isn’t getting quite enough credit.
