This was a really great Dunkel. My green glass bottle said: Hofbrau Dunkel. I would put this up there with Ayinger in the style. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2007
This is the best Dunkel I have ever tatsed. I love this beer, but too bad the brewery still insists on exporting the dreaded green bottle. I rarely get to enjoy this un-skunked, but when I do its like heaven. Sweet maltliness almost perfectly balanced by hops. Finishes smooth and eventful.

very similar to their helles with just a bit of roastiness and §minerality added to the aroma and flavor.
fairly light and clean in body and taste.
Aroma is full of soft sweet bready aromatic Munich malt.
Taste toasty malt with a touch of grainy astringency, mild minerality, and a bit of caramel sweetness.
Palate is soft and medium-bodied with medium-high carbonation.
Strong caramel, malty toffee like flavor and aroma. No hop flavors present, good example. crossovert (12908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Best session beer of all time. IT is darker in color, but light in flavor, with just enough sweetness. The ultimate beer to session on a hot summer day.

Best dark lager I’ve ever tasted after U Fleku. Drank a Mass at Hofbraeuhaus in Munich. It was unforgettable. This seems to be one of those beers that you have to drink at the source. It really loses a lot of character in transportation, and the ones I’ve had in America just didnt taste like they did at the source. Its much fresher and has a much more refined and delicate character in Munich. jagad5 (89) - - JUN 18, 2013
I’ve only had this from the tab at their home office. I wish I could find it here in the states. Their pilsner travels well. I suspect this one would too. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
Slight toffee aroma. Clear ruby colour with excellent head. Nice malty flavour with strong toffee and caramel. Medium to heavy body with low carbonation. mandrilo00 (107) - CROATIA - JUN 3, 2017

Appearance was clear root beerish with tan 3 finger lasting head with lacing. Aroma sweet bananas hints of biscuity caarmel,bready yeasts.Taste was sweet toast roasty malts.Mouthfeel was creamy carbonation with balanced body with hints of pine at a long finish, alcohol warmth at end. Great dunkel, would be better without the piney finish...
