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!

MRMedellin (326) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - JAN 20, 2017
Clear dark beer, with standard carbonation and beige head. The aroma reveal several malt notes like dough, caramel, raisins and some grass ones, the hops are almost abscent, the flavour has a nice malty flavour with a good bitterness coming from hops, with a persistent and stable aftertaste.

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.
