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!

ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Oh, hey, 400th rating for this beer. Draught at the 16th BBF. Brown pour with a light tan head. Sweet malty, nutty, plain, medium body, sticky. Underwhelmed.

hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
sample bottle at azwine 5/8/12. clear coppery brown with a white head. smells and tastes like a roastier version of the original...straw, vegetal, sand, pils and floral hops. dry palate with some bitterness on the finish. 5.5/3/5.5/3/13

3.4
Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
This beer appears a dark walnut hue with crimson highlights. The head stands in at a half inch, and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Aromas include toffee and slightly sweetened malt. The flavor brings additional flavors of chocolate and lightly toasted bread, along with an authentic German lager taste. The feel is relatively thin in body, with adequate carbonation. The beer now comes in a green bottle, which I find perplexing, as it was formerly in brown bottles. Fortunately, in this instance, I did not detect any of the skunky, off flavors commonly associated with imported beers in green bottles. Overall, a decent beer.

mile (4069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light roasted malt. Medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light roasted malt/light bread. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light roasted/light bread malt, faint hoppyness. Lightly sweetish dunkel with some caramel - that’s it.

Mezcalmannen (514) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Brown beer with a tan head. Aromas and flavours are medium to heavy. Plenty of caramel on the nose, malts as well. Mostly sweet taste, but some bitterness for balance.

2.9
jbruner (5471) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Pours a dark brown from the bottle with nice frothy, dissipating tan head and good lacing. Aroma of german yeast, corn malts, and slight toffee. Taste is honestly like a pale lager hidden with german yeast. Not sure how I feel about it, but have to give homage to the original dark beer.

3.5
beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. Full bodied aroma of caramel malts and spicy hops. Clear brown color, with vanishing fluffy off-white head. Flavor was both malty and bitter, with caramel and nut, rounded by clean bitter finish. Very carbonated.

3.2
reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours dark mostly clear brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasty with some sweet toffee notes...a bit bready/grainy. Flavor follows suit...just enough hop bitterness to cut the sweetness. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a roasty/dry leaves finish.

3.5
marcus (10890) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours black with a nice beige head and a bready aroma. There is a dry spicy burnt malt flavor that sticks to the palate.

Good German beer. Great aroma, strong flavors of molasses and subtle tones of chocolate. Good intro to a German dunkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
