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!

TedE (1328) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2015
500ml on tap. Smoky chocolate on the nose. Red/brown beer with solid tan head that leaves lacing. Silky mouthfeel. Medium body. Finish is chocolate, cocoa, cinnamon. What a pleasure! Nice beer, easy drinking.

Clear, deep amber with a red hue. Moderate head. Strong malt aroma with hints of caramel, cocoa, smoke. Big malt flavor, a little fruity, with melaniodian notes. Excellent body. Clean, slightly bitter finish.

330 ml green bottle pours a dark amber color with quickly disappearing one-finger off-white head and a little lacing. Aroma is malt-forward: some dark fruits and bread. Taste is slightly sweet all the way through. Body is medium with average carbonation. Very easily drinkable and defintely German. Good, not too simple, but not one of the greats either.

On tap at Franz’s Lagerhaus (Palm Harbor, FL). Pours a clear, medium reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, caramel, butterscotch, and mild spices. Sweet flavor as well but with some bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Clear but, very dark Amber. Pilsner malt, corn and biscuit aroma. The taste adds sweet light caramel and earthy hops. Clean finish, but bland overall. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A light rust color with aromatic malt notes. A little fruit and candy on the mid palate drives to a pure malt finish.

Poured from bottle. Clear medium brown color with some bubbly offwhite head. Aroma is sweet toffee caramel with a bit of sweet nuttiness. Flavor is typical sweet caramel malt with some doughiness and slight fruit flavor. Clean finish. Overall, nothing special.

hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2013
11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Clear brown with little tan head, no lacing. Malty/Wheat aroma is predominant. Taste is malty and bready quite sweet. Well balanced with a little bitterness to it and a dry finish; not too much body but nevertheless a nice drinkable beer.
