Hofbräuhaus München “Dunkel” Review (#135)

Hofbräu München "Dunkel"


Hofbräu München
Munich, Bavaria, Germany



Appearance: It pours a dark copper rust brown with a little bit of light shining through. Its thick white head quickly dissipates but with a swirl of the glass, it comes back fast and strong.

Smell: Rich and full; big malt with bread dough yeast mixed with stone fruit esters.

Taste: Full flavored, with parallels to smell. Larger fruit and earthy toasted malt. Crisp with a medium lingering finish of bread and esters.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied and drying sweet ending.

Drinkability:Big – Goes down very easily.

Notes:A very enjoyable, often readily available import. I really liked it and has similar flavor profiles to their Oktoberfest, which I love.
