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 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!

Saeglopur (2110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 10, 2016
Draught at Hofbräu zum Rathaus, Vienna.
Dark copper body, with a big, creamy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of toast, caramel, dark bread, some dark fruits, some honey.
Tastes of caramel, honey, toast, grains, some herbs, slight cardboard.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes grainy, bready, medium toasty, a bit caramelic.

Good. The nose is nice, with enjoyable toasty notes. Taste is OK, but a bit flat and slightly too sweet for me. Overall an OK style examples, while I’ve had better ones.

1 liter stein Hofbrauhaus Berlin. Preferred this slightly to the augustiner dunkel. Only slightly. The augustiner hells is preferable to the hofbrau though.
