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!

Brown with a decent beige head that leaves behind some good lacing. Aroma is toffee, roasted grains. Taste is toast, malt, toffee. Malty on the palate with a slight sweetness. Good session beer.

Al naso non entusiasma, tonalitá lievi di malto e caramello. al palato é giustamente gassata, equilibrata, secca con sapori di malto, cioccolata e caramello. good.

Has that metallic and slightly fruity taste that most dunkels seem to have. I enjoyed this one. It was never intrusive and the beer complemented the beer well. Tap at the Hofbräuhaus in München.

Frank (4058) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2012
This pours a transparent brown w/ a lingering white head. Nutty malts are the centerpiece of this one w/ a good, strong but slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Slightly sweet and full bodied but w/ enough carbonation to keep it drinkable. This is a decent example of the style but a that metallic taste in the finish really brings it down.

On tap at Rosie’s Wine bar. Pours ruby with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of grain, toffee and honey. Medium, slightly crisp body. Toffee toasted malt, noble hops and some cloves combine on the palate for a clean, fresh taste. Long hoppy finish is supported by sweet malt. This is a world-class dunkel.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2012
Big creamy beige lasting head. Clear deep red body with strong fast carbonation. Faint caramelly aroma. Dry-sweetish roasty earty caramelly taste. Mid-bodied. Soft, mild, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish peppery spicy caramelly aftertaste with roasty sugar and mint notes. Minty spicy notes linger for a long time. (0.5l draft at Bavarius, Moscow, Russia.)

Chudwick (2967) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - FEB 8, 2012
11.2oz bottle - pours clear amber with tan head. Nose is caramel malts and pilsner hops. Taste is sweet on the front end and turns bitter at the end. Aftertaste is roasted. Very crisp and refreshing. medium body with thin to sticky texture. Definitely a beer that can be had in mass quantity and won’t get old.

Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Appearance was clear root beerish with tan 3 finger lasting head with lacing. Aroma sweet bananas hints of biscuity caarmel,bready yeasts.Taste was sweet toast roasty malts.Mouthfeel was creamy carbonation with balanced body with hints of pine at a long finish, alcohol warmth at end. Great dunkel, would be better without the piney finish...
