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!

Dark copper with a thin white head. Smells skunky. Not much in terms of flavor.

On tap at Mahars. Pours dark brown with a good head. Aroma is sweet and earthy. Flavor is pumpkins and wheat, weird but good.

500ml bottle. Clear dark mahogany with a foamy beige head. Flavors are bread crust, toasted cereals, molasses, dark fruits and earthy hops with nutty and spicy notes. Light to medium body, good carbonation, slick texture.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle- Sampled @ Siebel during the German style tasting- Clear dark brown color, tan foamy head. Nose is intensely malty, somewhat unpleasent. I think I’m not a fan of munich malts. Flavor is not balanced, too sweet, not enough dark notes for me.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a drak amber with reddish hints when held up to the light. Rocky light tan coloured head. Aromas of roasted malt, sweet caramel, brown sugar and dark stone fruits. Very sweet, slightly sour nose. Not too bad. Flavours of roasted grain and light brown sugar. Medium slightly creamy mouthfeel. OK

Pours a clear dark amber with a nice head and lacing. Doughy aroma. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet. Nothing special, but a well made beer that is nice for everyday drinking.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Pour was dark clear golden with an off white head. Aroma was strong of caramel, light hops, and malt. Flavor was the same but a little more watered down. Overall, I thought it was nice because this is a great drinking beer. Light body and smooth. Would buy in a pub sometime.

On tap at Rosie’s Wine bar. Pours ruby with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of grain, toffee and honey. Medium, slightly crisp body. Toffee toasted malt, noble hops and some cloves combine on the palate for a clean, fresh taste. Long hoppy finish is supported by sweet malt. This is a world-class dunkel.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Sour smash. 12oz bottle. Pours a clear brown color, good lacing and bright white head. Pleasant aroma, nice lots of interesting malts, spicy. The taste is good, not great. I don’t think it’s very spicy. Tasty beer, not a huge beer, but like drinking a classic painting. It’s enjoyable and classic, and that’s enough.

Sweet toffee and caramel flavors highlight this beer. This is an easy drinking, medium bodied beer.
