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!

Bottle in Berlin. Dark, cereals, some caramel, decent balance. Fine with food, but no need to go out of your way for this.

Kristall-König (2341) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Das Hofbräu Dunkel hat mich nicht ganz überzeugt. Der guten Süffigkeit stehen eine überschwere Malzigkeit und nur durchschnittliche Hopfenbittere entgegen. Leichte Röstaromen im Nachhall. Test vom 6.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Brown beer with a tan head. Aromas and flavours are medium to heavy. Plenty of caramel on the nose, malts as well. Mostly sweet taste, but some bitterness for balance.

Barreras (1085) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours a cola brown with aroma of roasted caramel. Taste is very easy drinking smooth. A light bitterness with a mild creamy end after the swallow. A very enjoyable dunkel that I’d drink again.

ciaranc (1017) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 21, 2012
Pours chestnut brown, fluffy off white head which settles to a thin line. Wood, caramel and lots of spicy yeast on the nose. Taste follows aroma almost exactly, with a sour twist towards the end. Not much body, shortish finish. My first Dunkel so Ive no context for my rating, though quite enjoyable.
