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!

harrisoni (17589) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from The Real Ale Shop Newark. Bizarre I have have not had this before. Clear brown colour and lasting beige head. Some mild brown malt. Eady drinking in the mouth. It’s fine. Rather a light dunkel in terms of flavour but it’s fine. Light malt and easy drinking. Fine.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, sparkling dark chestnut body under a creamy, fingerthick off-white head. Nice curtains. There’s a faint touch of cooked vegetables in the aroma, with raisins and prunes, some caramel and a little roasted note. The flavor has a very nice bitterness, keeping the sweetness under control. An easy task actually, as it’s a quite dry beer. Pleasant carbonation level, soft and full-bodied on the palate. Some roasted malts in the back. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a very fine bitterness. Except for the touch of dms in the aroma, a very fine brew. 140921

Clear ruby color, creamy off-white head. Rye bread, toasted sugar and grassy hops in the nose. Grassy hoppy slightly caramelly dunkel. Light sour note. Standard dunkel, a bit souless.

Draught, Archer Ale House
Bright dark brown. Figs, molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. The body is light, and a bit watery in the finish. Flavours of light molasses, graham crackers and slightly sticky sugariness. Decent balance.

Tap (Hofbrau, Berlin)
Deep caramelly red, large tight head. Sweet caramelly malty aroma. Similar taste, but a bit waterier and dull. Finish caramelly. Slight copper coin hpo bitterness. Poor for a dunkel.
