COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For centuries this was Munich’s favorite beer. This Pittsburgh brewed dunkel has a light body, is easy to drink, with simple roasted malt flavor and slight caramel overtones.

On tap at the brewpub. 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.

Sampled at Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh in October 2011. I’ve been enjoying this dunkel at the first US Hofbrauhaus in Newport, Kentucky for many years, and I must say these brewmasters must operate to truly exacting standards. The Pittsburgh dunkel tastes literally exactly the same, outstanding!

zach8270 (3370) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2012
(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA - Rating #2800) Clear caramel/brown pour with a thin tan head. Lightly nutty caramel and malt aroma with a very mild hop backbone. Sweet and malty at the start of the flavor with some very smooth nut and caramel malts flavors. Slightly sweet on the aftertaste and very smooth.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Tap at hofbrau haus Pittsburgh. Nice caramel notes on the nose. Pours Lehigh brown with a small khaki head. Rounded malt notes on the tongue. They don’t overpower but they’re hanging around. Clean finisher. Solid.
