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!

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...

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a clear brown color with good off-white head, persistent with a little Belgian lace. True-to-style German Dunkel aromas and flavors, a classic example: bread, toast, caramel, slight roast. Light-medium body, low carbonation, "chewy" mouthfeel, lingering roastiness. Overall impression is mellow, darkened cereal grains with a clean, crisp lager finish.

An easy drinking light beer. Nothing crazy or fancy but it has it’s own special characteristics and flavors. I would buy again. It’s okay. Julie does NOT like this one...

At Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Pours dark brown (chestnut) colour with a large head and gentle bubbles. The nose has chocolate biscuits and there is more of the chocolate biscuit note on the taste. The palate is medium in structure and texture with a clean finish. Overall, a good beer.
