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!

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
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.

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.

Classic German dark beer without frills or other fabrications. Feels incredibly authentic!

ccex (1267) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2003
Probably one of the fairest commercial descriptions on Ratebeer. Dark amber clear under a large very fine bubble pale beige head. Fruity almost a molasses malty, doppelbock like nose. Thin sharp palate. Flavourwise it's a bit disappointing. Medium light candy sweet malt with a touch of hop bitter late in the middle and finish. Thin watery blandish cola like finish.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a dark brown color. Aroma is full of bread and malt, with a slight dog food characteristic. Not very sweet, just loaded with grain. Flavor mixes things up a bit, but the sweetness I have come to expect from some Dunkels is missing. More bread and caramel malt with a slight smokiness.

YantarCoast (1247) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 27, 2014
0.5 bottle. Pours a dark copper with a nice beige head. Aroma is chocolate and malts. Taste of cocoa powder, roast grain. A nice dunkel.

Peter_L (1245) - SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2014
Flaska från SB. Brunröd vätska med tjockt skum. Dofter av fruktkaka och lite karamell. Maltig, knäckig smak. Hyfsat kort i smaken med aningen torr avslutning.

Silvan7 (1231) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle @ home . Versata in un bicchiere da lager, sprigiona un bel profumo di malto tostato e di cacao amaro. La schiuma è abbastanza fine, compatta e di color nocciola. la birra è marrone con riflessi ruggine, limpida, forse solo una lievissima velatura.Amara, ha una decisa nota tostata, che ricorda la frutta secca, ma anche il dolce del malto si lascia sentire. Il corpo è debole, molto meno pastoso di quanto mi aspettassi. estremamente rinfrescante grazie al sentore di luppolo , presente ma poco accennato il gusto di cereale. Molto buona e di facile beva.

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 10, 2014
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Weizen. Color marrón y trasparente. La espuma bronceada crea una corona burbujeante y fugaz. Aromas herbales, tostados y de leve madera con trazos de diacetilo. Sabores de tostado dulce y sirope. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante que agua la textura. Sabor de caramelo y matices de licor de almendras y avellanas que se despliegan en el intermedio. Final dulce. Desequilibrada y empalagosa ! 500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Brown color, crystal clear appearance. Tan froth creates a lively & brief crown. Toasted, slight woody, herbal aromas, hints of diacetyl. Sweet toasted & syrupy flavors. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation resolves in a watery texture. Candy flavor, hues of sweet almonds & nutmeg liquor touch are displayed in the middle. Sweet finish. Unbalanced & cloying!
