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!

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAR 7, 2017
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa cristalina y una mediana actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de baja retención, burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: muchos frutos secos como nueces, algo de almendra, costra de pan, ligeramente caramelo y algo herbal muy tenue. SABOR: se percibe y dominan los frutos secos de inicio, notas a nueces, almendras, costra de pan, ligeramente algo de caramelo y la presencia de los lúpulos de carácter herbal noble. En el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero y algo de permanencia de las notas a frutos secos. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, mediana a baja carbonatación. RESUMEN: una excelente cerveza para el estilo.

Cavie (4552) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. No skunk, even though it’s a green bottle. Bready aroma, toast, burnt bread pudding flavor. Not as rich as other examples. Dark brown color, fairly clear. Medium light body.

PlutonowyMan (662) - POLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Barwa rubinowo brązowa, klarowna ze średniej wysokości, beżową pianą. Piana jest dość trwała a po każdym łyku pozostawia subtelne zdobienia. Aromat kojarzy mi się z palonym, może nawet nieco przypalonym zbożem, kurzem i gotującym się ryżem. Smak odkrywa ciemne słody z owocowym zacięciem i karmelem. w tle nuty metaliczne pochodzące raczej od wody. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku do wysokiego.

Trolleo (1451) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2017
Light brown body, minimal off-white head. Vegetables, rotten truffle and hideous malt aroma. Taste is too sweet with roasted finish. This is bad.

MRMedellin (287) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - JAN 20, 2017
Clear dark beer, with standard carbonation and beige head. The aroma reveal several malt notes like dough, caramel, raisins and some grass ones, the hops are almost abscent, the flavour has a nice malty flavour with a good bitterness coming from hops, with a persistent and stable aftertaste.

Pours medium to dark brown, big light tan head. Aroma is bready, light caramel , raisins, cola. Taste is surprisingly light malt, spicy hops. Light mouthfeel.
