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 dark beer.

Today, Hofbräu Dunkel – the archetypal Bavarian beer – is still as popular as ever. With an alcohol content of around 5.5% by volume and a subtle spicy and rich flavor, this is a refreshing beer that suits all kinds of occasions. A beer in the traditional Munich style! THE BEER WITH A LONG TRADITION! Type: Bottom-fermented Lager.

weihenweizen (1766) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Identical to the one in Pittsburgh. Pours amber, aroma is nice caramel malt, light body, low carbonation, and small bubble lacing. Taste is slightly off caramel malt and some herbal hops. The worst of the bunch.

Pours a dark clear liquid with a good sense of malt and grains. Not a bad finish, be careful when drinking out of the liter steins as they go down smooth and quick without the drinker realizing how much they have downed. A good beer and place to grab some unique brews.

Draft to mug at Hofbrauhaus. Looks decent; a transparent brown. Smells and tastes alright; some malt and hops. Average on the palate. Meh.

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. It was Andrew’s, thanks to him for letting me drink half his beer. Clear darker reddish brown color. Good off-white head that lasts, leaves dots of lace. Nice smooth lighter carbonation, dry finish. It’s a good texture and mouthfeel. Very fresh tasting. Good aroma, if a little light. Some dark fruit, toasty malts. Light bitterness. Have to admit, it’s a decent dunkel.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Clear dark amber with a thin tan topper. Aroma of caramel, pale malt and no real hops. Taste is ho-hum with caramel and malt. Easy drinkable and easily forgettable.

Chudwick (2173) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Draft in the half liter mug. Pours clear amber with rich beige head and some lacing. Caramel and candy aromas with a hoppy finish. Medium body. Interesting. Oh and burpy.
