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!

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Clear brown to copper pour with a lively head. Sort of big aroma with malt amd bread and some prune, meal and cereal. Medium body and fast flavour profile. Some burnt molasses note and really out of balance.

On draught at Hofbräuhaus. Dark almost black color, yet opaque. Light aroma of dark malts. Taste of grape juice and dark sweet malts. Easy finish.

Bottle. Green bottle.. should’ve been my fisrt clue. This shit is an awful example of the style -- skunk and caramel tick all the boxes as far as aroma and taste go, everything else is below average. I have over 700 ratings, and this is the most half-assed one I’ve done to date because this bottle of Gerry piss is the most half-assed Dunkel I’ve had to date. I’d rather drink a can of Busch Light (and for the record, I really like me some Dunkel, otherwise I wouldn’t give this such a hash critique).

(Tap) es hat eine dunkelbraune Farbe, ist filtriert mit einer leicht bräunlichen Schaukrone. Das Aroma ist malzig, karamellig, minimal röstig und etwas wie ein Malzlager im Kopf. Der Geschmack ist malzig, vollmundig, karamellig und minimal röstig. Retronasal kommt das Malzlager durch.

halfonit (1412) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Has a clear brown color. Aroma is mainly of malts with a little caramel. Taste is very malty. Also has a light aluminum, tofee, and soy sauce flavor. Slight bite in the end. Not too bad.

3.2
carruthm (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2008
dark reddish, somewhat marzen-colored ale, it packs a lot of malt to it, but not much else except a bit of caramel
