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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is my go-to beer when I’m at hofbrau. It’s beautiful with a rich, dark copper color, with a nice tan head. The aromas are roasty, but sweet. It’s one I can drink all night.
