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!

500ml bottle pours a reddish brown color with a 2 finger light beige head that lasts a little while and leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and chocolate with some dark fruits and spicy hops. Taste is much like the aroma. Medium bodied with medium carbonation providing a nice feeling on the tongue. Overall, a pretty well done dunkel.

RedSox2004 (1890) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Clear medium brown with an off-white head and moderate lace. Aromas of chocolate, fig, overripe grapes and dark bread like pumpernickel. Bready malt sweetness highlights the flavor profile, with bittersweet chcolate and dark fruit playing string roles. Medium body and carbonation, thin creamy texture, and a malt sweetness in the finish.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Tap at St. Arnold’s in a 0.5L mug, the smallest size available. Holy ___. Deep, clear brown to deep ruby pour. Medium, soapy beige head formation. Weak retention and no lace. Nose is all detergent. Taste is soapy with saltwater. High carbonation on the palate. Very mild chocolate and cherry character, but overall there is no maltiness that say "dunkel". Really has nothing to do with the style.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 3, 2012
This tasting was on an expired sample Aroma: Sour malt, walnuts, earth, very subtle caramel notes. Mouthfeel: Smooth and light. Thicker than most lagers. Taste: Balanced. Toasted bread , bitter roasted malt, coffeeish notes, Finish: Remniscent of raisins (sans the sweetness), slightly metallic, and lightly tart. Overall: Not very memorable, but very decent session beer. I could drink lots of it.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 23, 2012
Hazy chocolate in colour with an off-white head that sat and thinned on top like a time lapse video of male pattern baldness. Typical dunkel chocolate maltiness, dripping juicy figness. Just one of the most mouthwatering beer smells there is. Full bodied mouthfeel with tingly prickliness enduring. The flavour errs toward that chocolate and caramel milkshake. It’s got a good sweetish creamy taste to it that lingers along with cocoa powder to the finish. I could happily drink this beer for hours.

Lorenasa (159) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a dark red color with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and sugar cane. Taste a little like brown sugar with bitterness to counterbalance. a very good and refreshing beer.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Aroma is nutty and spicy and even has some German pils skunk to it. Cherry color with plenty of fizz and tan head. Sweet malt with a bitter start and starchy finish.Lighter for a dunkel, really a classic dark lager. Better than Spaten’s dunkel? Absolutely.

3.3
60minuteman (1714) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Clear mahogany pour. Malt and yeast smell. Perhaps a roasted note or two? Sweet malt taste. Enjoyable beer during a phils game.

2.8
Bosco (322) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Pours clear brown with fast head and no lace. Low bitter, slightly off taste. $1.99/12oz @ Total Wine & More, Boca Raton, FL
