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!

Probably one of the fairest commercial deScriptions on Ratebeer. Dark amber clear under a large very fine bubble pale beige head. Fruity almost a molasses malty, doppelbock like nose. Thin sharp palate. Flavourwise it's a bit disappointing. Medium light candy sweet malt with a touch of hop bitter late in the middle and finish. Thin watery blandish cola like finish.

Ordered this on tap at the Hofbräuhaus München, Germany. Very dark brown, roasted malt aroma, a little carmel. Ein maß dunkel, bitter.

On tap. Pretty good, but I could have used a bit more sweet caramel flavor. The hops bitterness seemed a bit flat too, but the balance was very nice.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2007
Tasted 02/01/2007. 12oz bottle from RW&S. Rich golden-hued chestnut, bright, with a very light tan, creamy, medium-lasting foam on top. Malt dominated nose: biscuity, toasty, slightly coffee-like a very slight touch of plastic from the alcohols as it warms. Good malt sweetness, toasty through the middle with a little hop flavour (slightly grassy). Bitterness and toasty malt linger, with warming alcohol notes. Nice - perhaps a touch warm in the fermentation, with those alcohol notes coming through.

beerbill (3598) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2008
On tap at The Cooperage Inn, Baiting Hollow. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a thin off-white head that disappeared after a couple of sips. Light, pleasant aroma of malt and not much else. Flavor is sweet malt up front and finishes with light bitterness. A nice alternative to the usual BMC offerings at most restaurants; it was a pleasure to be able to drink something different.

12 oz green bottle. Clear, dark brown with ruby highlights, rocky white head which fell quickly. Light malt nose with some earthy hop aroma. Light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Carmel malt flavor with some spicey earthy hop bitterness. Dry finish.

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.

dark reddish, somewhat marzen-colored ale, it packs a lot of malt to it, but not much else except a bit of caramel
