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!

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...

Dobry tradycyjny Monachijski Dunkel. Swietna i gesta piana, i trwala niesamowicie dlugo. Odcien i kolor typowy dla stylu ciemnobursztynowy kolor z bordowymi refleksami. W smaku karmelowe slodowe na koncu lekka goryczkowa koncowka

A very pleasant, smooth dark lager! Subtle notes of chocolate, fig, caramel, and even some coffee. Noticeable but subdue hops. This is definitely an Octoberfest staple for those liking dark seasonal beers. For those that hardly drink a darker beer or not sure if they will like one this one is a great starting point! Recommended!

Clear dark mahogany pour with a large beige head and great retention. Good lacing. Smooth and flat mouthfeel. Light sweet toffee and caramel malt flavor. Not smoky.

Tap. Exceptional beer. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and liquorice. Taste was sweet, with long length. Palate was velvety, with a thin-to-medium body. Brown, with a frothy white head.

An easy drinking light beer. Nothing crazy or fancy but it has it’s own special characteristics and flavors. I would buy again. It’s okay. Julie does NOT like this one...

Deep clear mahogany brown. Off white head that starts about a half in or so and levels to film like cover. The spicy caramel malt aroma is subtle. Sweet rich toasted on the tongue. Has a spicy Earth like quality. Has a pleasantly and sweet after taste. Leaves me wanting more and I do. I’d certainly recommend this one.

Tried it on tap at HB Munich in Summer 2015. My wife and I were pleasantly impressed. A bit too sweet for the godson. Although, they enjoyed the pretzel. lol
