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!

Clear amber brown pour with slim tan head, mostly a ring. Aroma is malty goodness with cooked sugar, bread and slight spice. Flavor follows though more subdued. If it tasted like it smells it would be wow. A little thin and watery, but very drinkable and enjoyable, just wish it was more full-flavored.

TEJA (3257) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2017
Sampled at Hofbräu Munich. Big and lasting beige head. Clear dark brown red color. Nice roasted malty aroma. Malty and a bit malty sweetness.

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAR 7, 2017
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa cristalina y una mediana actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de baja retención, burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: muchos frutos secos como nueces, algo de almendra, costra de pan, ligeramente caramelo y algo herbal muy tenue. SABOR: se percibe y dominan los frutos secos de inicio, notas a nueces, almendras, costra de pan, ligeramente algo de caramelo y la presencia de los lúpulos de carácter herbal noble. En el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero y algo de permanencia de las notas a frutos secos. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, mediana a baja carbonatación. RESUMEN: una excelente cerveza para el estilo.

Light smell of dark fruits...Taste was dark fruits at first but then lightens to more normal malt...smooth...finish is straightforward and a little watery...

Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. No skunk, even though it’s a green bottle. Bready aroma, toast, burnt bread pudding flavor. Not as rich as other examples. Dark brown color, fairly clear. Medium light body.

Piw (1250) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2017
Frisch gezapft. Klar und dunkelbraun mit kleiner, cremiger Schsumkrone. Malzig. Leichter Körper. Spritzig.

PlutonowyMan (883) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - 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 (1742) - 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.
