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!

Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2008
From a green bottle, which immediately causes concern - Clear reddish brown, with virtually no head. Nice earthy smell, with some dark bread and rum notes. Flavor is similiar, but mixed with some fruity notes. Surprisingly rough, bitter finish, which is welcome.

Ah drink these out of a liter mug down at the black squirrel in DC. Traditional German dunkel with a great pour, head and aroma. Will be drinking many more of these in the future.

BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft at Hofbrau Beer Garden in Panama City Beach. Brown in the glass with a tan head that had a thin layer lasting and good lace. Sweet malts in the aroma with a backing of nut and caramel. The flavor is slightly lighter with sweet malts and a hint of bitterness. Light to medium body with a sweet malt aftertaste.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of FlacoAlto - Pours a clear brown color with deep red edges and sports a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is light toasted caramel malt with a hint of herbal hops. Flavor is much of the same with the addition of some pronounced herbal flavors. A nice medium bodied beer. Thanks Sebastian.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2009
(bottle) Clear, ruby amber colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet and almost Bock-like toast-malty aroma with strong notes of caramel and a touch of dark bread an anise. Light-bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Dry toasty malt character with pronounced notes of caramel. Toasty and slightly hop bitter finish with wll-blended sweet malt. Decent Dunkel (21.II.09).

A little on the lighter side in the mouth, bordering "watery"; malty; pretty dry ending, not the best; the spicy flavor balances very nicely with the sweet caramel flavor to make for an enjoyably complex taste; nice dark amber appearance. I recommend it.

crabbey (17) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2010
UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Bottle. Reddish brown, moderate off-white head which diminishes fairly quickly. Sweet bready malt with some caramel on the nose. The faintest hint of an aroma hop. Sweet taste with a light-moderate bitterness which seems to last along with a toasted malt taste. Medium body and a touch undercarbonated. Nothing wrong here, but a bit conservative.
