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!

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

This is pretty standard dark German beer fare. Good and traditional. Sweet malty aroma. There was a small tinge of skunkiness as this was in a green bottle. Light brown and clear with average head. Even though a dark lager there was not much weight. A little watery but easy to drink. Flavors were grain, malt, sweet, maybe a little spice but overall mellow. Typical German stuff found in the US.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body with a small fizzy beige head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is slightly bready and lightly roasted malt with a little graininess. The flavor is fairly bland really, just a light bready, nutty, and toasty malt base with a little sweetness on the finish. Lighter bodied with just a little stickiness on the finish. Moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, a rather bland and boring effort, but easy enough to finish a single bottle.

Eructoblaster (3034) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Nice copper body with a thin off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, grainy, and woody hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries brown sugar and woody notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Decent everyday Dunkel.

EyeAmBaldman (250) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany with a thick off-white head. My bottle was green, unlike the pic here, and aroma was a little skunky. Not a lot of active carbonation in the glass but swirling it around creates a nice creamy head. Taste is nothing special, but is not really bitter at all. It’s mostly malty hay and yeast. Not a bad dunkel.
