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!

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2006
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.

alexanderj (3423) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Clear opaque, brownish red. Aroma of caramel malt; some very "german" flavor, don’t know exactly what. Light palate; caramel malt flavor with a light hint of hops. Only somewhat sweet. Not great, but drinkable.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor of much of the same. However, it is very light on the palate and almost refreshing. Would be good to drink on a warm summer day.

Bottle from BevMo, La Mesa. Pours a color very close to that of coke. Slightly roasted aroma with a hint of sourness. Mildly roasted flavor with a litlle bit of sweetness. Finish is somewhat like burnt coffee beans. Not too bad.

500ml vom fass at the biergarten Chinesischer Turm, Englischer Garten, München. Clear, deep brown body under a thin layer. Fair lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavour is also dominated by sweet malts balanced by notes of dark fruits. Lingering, rounded bitter end (18.06.2007).

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - AUG 11, 2007
Thanks to ghawener. As with this type of beer, malt dominates this brew. Pours out nicely, amber color with a nice creamy head. Sweet malts that lingers in your mouth.

Brown with some bubbles, big thick frothy head. Caramel scent. Quite sweet, slightly watery with a light carbonation. Malty in the mouth, with toffee in the aftertaste. Good.
