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!

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a drak amber with reddish hints when held up to the light. Rocky light tan coloured head. Aromas of roasted malt, sweet caramel, brown sugar and dark stone fruits. Very sweet, slightly sour nose. Not too bad. Flavours of roasted grain and light brown sugar. Medium slightly creamy mouthfeel. OK

Nice bread/malt/caramel aroma. Flavor is fruity, sweet, and spicy, like carrot cake with a caramel topping. Flavorful and really easy to drink.

drowland (8183) - Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2011
10/2/11. 12oz bottle. Clear brown pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces a tiny bit. Stylistic aroma of caramel and bread with a sweet flavor of caramel and biscuits with a touch of metal. Meh, but could be worse.

Had this at Oktoberfest in Denver. Pours a nice dark brown with a good malty aroma. Kind of run of the mill dunkel but tasty.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2011
This is a very fine dunkel! Pours a rich, dark brown body with a hearty frothy head that stays with the brew a long time. Hints of roasted malt and caramel are both smelt and tasted; followed up with a light, crisp hit of bitter hops that’s just right!
