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!

PlutonowyMan (695) - POLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Barwa rubinowo brązowa, klarowna ze średniej wysokości, beżową pianą. Piana jest dość trwała a po każdym łyku pozostawia subtelne zdobienia. Aromat kojarzy mi się z palonym, może nawet nieco przypalonym zbożem, kurzem i gotującym się ryżem. Smak odkrywa ciemne słody z owocowym zacięciem i karmelem. w tle nuty metaliczne pochodzące raczej od wody. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku do wysokiego.

Trolleo (1478) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2017
UPDATED: APR 10, 2017 Some corn in aroma, lots of caramel, little bit toasted bread, some sweet chocolate. Clear dark coppery to brown color with firm creamy head. Taste is roasted malt, strong grainy feel, sweet caramel, some dried fruit, medium sweet, semi-dry aftertaste, well balanced. Medium thin to medium body, kind of creamy, mild carbonation. Very well.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2016 16 oz tap. Pours clear dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Nice aromas of molasses, plum, and bready malt. Mild sweet flavor with more molasses, mild, herby hop and roasty malt linger. Light body with a watery mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, love the aroma, and quaffable, but otherwise, lacking in flavor.
