3.9/5 rDev +2.6%
Served on-tap at the Pittsburgh restaurant.
A: The dunkel lager is a dark caramel and chocolate color, bright enough to be brightened when lights shines through but generally opaque. A finger of head coats the top of the glass but the 0.5L mark was hit.
S: The nose is caramel sweet with a firm bready grain base. Not much hop-wise but a nice chewy aroma.
T: The first sip is loaded with sweet malts, mainly caramel with a nice toasted flavor underlying the sweetness. Again, hops aren't a major factor but they aren't missed. A nice chewy ale to sip on.
M: The mouthfeel is clean with a crisp taste. I enjoyed quaffing this one.
D: A solid session lager that never felt heavy as I drank it.

A - A nice deep brown in color. Lighter than expected with a nice frothy head. They love the head here!
S - Slight roasted character, mild grain and hops with a touch of bread.
T - The roast-ness of this beer almost comes off smokey much more so even touching into a mild coffee. The bready sweetness rounds the bitter roast giving the palate a clean finish.
M - A very sweet and drinkable dunkel. Not too bitter!
D - Another great offering from Hofbräu! I only rate the drinkability a four since I would order the hefe hands down first before touching waters with this beer. Doesn't mean it's bad it's just not my first choice. Very succession-able though!

Pours a clean copper to orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma, like a mixture of a lager and caramel. In the taste, caramel, earthy, and a small fruitiness. A smooth and medium to light mouthfeel, with a clean fruit and caramel stickiness in the aftertaste. OK, nice flavor but still quite lager ish.

Pours a dark brown color. Lots of off white head and plenty of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. In the taste, roasted malt and some cocoa. Light herbal hopping, even bitterness with a slightly roasted finish. Medium bodied, but full and smooth. Overall this is a great brew.

A-Deep, dark caramel copper that when held up to strng light is actually transparent. A thin off-white head holds on fairly strong and leaves decent lace.
S-Light caramel malt sweetness with a touch of biscuit.
T-Sweet malts, mainly of caramel with a touch of toasted biscuit underneath. Nothing extravagant but solid and slightly chewy.
M-Medium bodied with a crisp, clean finish.
D-Solid and well built with a touch of toast and caramel sweetness with is a well done dunkel. The kind of dark beer to give to someone who states, "I dont like dark beer".

Draft offering at the Pittsburgh location served in a large dimpled mug. The brew appears a amber color with a rich off-white cap that fades slowly leaving patchy lace-work on the glass.
The aroma contains plenty of bready malt and some sweetness with fruity and floral hops/alcohol. As more whiffs are taken, some of that bready maltiness transforms to more toffee and molasses character.
The taste includes plenty of molasses-like dark malt flavoring with a fresh bready grain appeal that blends to something more like toffee and caramel with more sips. There is an herbal hop aspect before blending to a soft fruity alcohol aapect towards the finish.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall an exceptionally drinking brew and probably the best example of a dunkel I have had in recent memory. I wouldnt mind having this again sometime soon.
