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!

felsenpils' rating

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
felsenpils (186) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 9, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a very long lasting off-white head. The aroma is quite clean and malty, no hop oils detected. The flavor is of dark malt with a subdued bitterness. This is how you brew a traditional Munich Dunkel. For all you unfamiliar with this style, do not expect the typical raisin/prune/cocoa flavor found in almost every American dark beer. Do not expect the high viscosity and thick mouthfeel from the overuse of caramel malts. Expect, rather, a highly drinkable, refreshing beer with a dark malt accent. This is one of the finest examples of the style you will find anywhere which is meant to be enjoyed by the liter.

Chopp at Hofbräu Berlin. Deep dark brown, medium head. Sweet roasts malty carmel aroma. Flavour is sweet with roasted malt and carmel, some dark fruit. Thin palate.

Simply put, this is the standard that all dark beers must be compared. From the opening malty, caramel aroma, to the slightly bitter yet smooth aftertaste, this beer represents the very best Germany (or any country for that matter) can hope to achieve.

Luneylane (292) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - FEB 11, 2018
A bottle from Jason's near NCCU. Aroma: rather sour. Appearance: clear oxtail soup, 10mm. foam, dissipating to tan lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and oily, average carbonation, lingering malty finish. Taste: medium sweet, very flavoursome, tons of caramel. Great beer.

Pours dark and runny. The lack of viscosity is apparent and surprising from the start. Smell is lightly sweet and malty. Taste is strongly chocolate malts with a biscuit appeal that tends toward unburnt toast. Light bodied and very drinkable. Good.

Color ambarino corona de espuma blanca, aromas maltosos y caramelo, sabores a caramelo con notas a malta cuerpo medio.

Clear cola color with a fine head. Decent lacing. Looks ok. Medium body and a mellow carbonation level. Tad sweet and a decent bitterness. Bready, fruity and caramel in the flavor.
