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!

kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2012

2.9
rozsoma (1023) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - APR 12, 2012
On tap, Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Served in a 1L dumpled mug. Dark ruby but a bit light body, sweety but a bit watery taste. Aftertaste is a bit like stone, like a stonebier or gösser zwickl.I have expected a lot more from it.

1.7
Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle from Cavie. Red-brown pour with an off-white head. A 95 percentile dunkel that lets the skunk slip as soon as I pop the top. No bottle date. Green bottle. I shouldn’t be surprised. Aroma is skunk, roast, and chocolate, and cheap cigars. Taste is steamed veggies, roast, thin chocolate, and a little metallic.

3.3
Zita (6325) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
light smoked aroma,red, brown, off white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, soft carbonation, nice burnt sugar finish,

3.2
maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
This seems very German... darker brown with a decent amount of head, it has some nice malty notes to it.

3.2
Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
A nice aromatic dunkel. Colour is dark amber and it is clear. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet, complex roasted/toasted notes, sugars, burnt sugars. Flavor is mainly sweet. Creamy texture and lively carbonation.

3.6
phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Draft at Rhine Haus in St. Louis. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted nuts, brown sugar, earth- very toasty. Same for the flavor, with a bigger dose of nuts and earth to go along with the toast and caramel and mild spice. Medium-bodied, with a toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice dunkel.

4.1
Bootus (14) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Nutty with a sweet aroma. Dark caramel color. The taste is light enough to be refreshing. Very nice.

3.6
freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Tap pours amber copper with off white head. Aromas light of toasted grain with a very light fruit. The taste is smooth but deceptive with a touch of fruit and a full grain taste. The palate is easy but the spice and herbal hop softness fills it out compared to other German dunkel lagers. Enjoyable for sure.
