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!

Nice black beer with a lot of balance between sweetness and liquorice/ coffee. Got better as it warmed.

Pours clear mahogany into a shaker. Cola head dissipates to nothing in a flash. Mild caramel aromas. Crisp with sweet caramel upfront turning sharp and metallic in the cloying lasting finish.

On tap in Miami shared by Oakes. Cloudy brown pour with a decent sized beige head. Great caramel malt aroma. Flavor is full of caramel, nuts and is a bit sweet. Do yourself a favor and try the Hofbrau beers fresh on tap...what a difference.

Lowe1983 (1647) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours a brown color with a tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel malts, plums, and a little toffee. Flavor is pretty close to the aroma with a slightly dry finish. Overall it’s pretty decent.

IauditUUhateme (22) - Coram, New York, USA - APR 3, 2009
On tap at J&R steakhouse. Nice color, good head that hung around a bit. A little lighter tasting than I expected. Solid Dunkel, like something you could serve to a non-craft beer guy. Sweet, malty taste & aroma. I wouldn’t seek it out, but would definately have it again.

A great beer, I must say; I found it to be immediately enjoyable and noted that I would certainly drink it again.
It pours an appealing dark colour with a decent frothy head which, unfortunately, recedes a bit too quickly. It has an enduring and pleasing flavour; with a distinct hint of caramel. It goes down very well. Well worth buying!

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Coffee colored body with a creamy, thick, bubbly head and very nice lacing. Toasty malt aroma with a solid biscuit scent. Silky smooth texture coupled with a light creaminess. Very well balanced brew. Multi grain toast and toffee are found in the flavor along with a hint of chocolate (very faint hint) and some grassy noble hops. A surprisingly good dunkel, would make for a fantastic session brew.
