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!

(7/4/08) Draught at the brewpub in Munich. Served in a 1L mug. Dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, some bread and caramel. Sweet flavor with caramelly malt and light toastiness. Medium-bodied but maybe slightly too light. Acceptable.

I pick up a single green bottle at Pat-apostrophe-s Liquors in Porter IN. It pours a clear caramel/amber body with a tall and creamy beige head. It’s got a sweet malty aroma with a touch of rust and mineral water. The flavor drops those last two, lightly toasts the malts, and adds an herbal bitterness. Good session lager.

Average dunkel from Hofbrau. On draft from Mr. Dunderbaks. Nice malty and caramel balance--smooth and not too strong.

crazyvin (2020) - New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Poured a clear reddish-brown hue with a off white had that had a slight retention. Aroma had mostly floral notes to it. Flavor initially was slightly sweet with caramel malts but a nice bread not balanced it out. Flavor was smooth throughout but the carbonation was elevated and was somewhat annoying. Still a decent refreshing beer.

Miksu (5008) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2009
Draught at Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä. Dark brown color. The aroma and flavor is caramelly, nutty and slightly toasty with dark bread and licorice. The aroma is sweetish but the taste is dryer. OK dunkel but I would like to have stronger maltiness.

Pours a brown color with a tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel malts, plums, and a little toffee. Flavor is pretty close to the aroma with a slightly dry finish. Overall it’s pretty decent.

Pours black brown. Nice smooth roasted aroma. Flavor is also smooth, but lacking impact - almost watery. Low to medium body. I love my dark lagers and this is so so. Plenty of good American craft breweries putting out better.
