look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
11.2oz Green bottle into a shaker. Why green, hofbrau? Why? My beer store has UV filters, but still, they only work so well, and even then, we don't know how it was handled before they get it...
A - Crystal clear brown with a massive off-white head that forms a nice, close pillow. Lots of lacing.
S - Slightly chocolatey with an herbal background. Very pleasant.
T - Smooth, doughy malt sweetness with a dark caramel note. Very light herbal hop flavor noted.
M - Light bodied with low to medium carbonation.
O - Wow, could I put down a few of these. They sure know how to do lagers in Munich.

2.91/5 rDev -22.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: dark amber red color. Half a finger of creamy off white head on the pour which settled in to a thin layer across the top while drinking. Active carbonation is above average for the style.
Smell: Overly sweet toffee jumps out right away. There are some slightly skunky, funky tones going on here as well. Dark fruits and oak show up on the body. Sweetness runs throughout and dominates, to a fault.
Taste: Toffee and caramel hit first. The body is mossy, earthy with accents of oak and some dark fruits. These flavors all come together, but slowly fade into a slightly dry finish with some lingering sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Nothing really note worthy at all here. Carbonation doesn't play a part and no notable lingering textures keep you interested.
Overall: Very disappointed by this. Loved the other Hofbrau offerings I've had, this just has none of the characteristics I look for in a dunkel. I'll stick with the Original and Hefe.
