HOFBRAU ORIGINAL DUNKEL

Hofbrau Original Dunkel. It might not be a pure dunkel season in the northern hemisphere, but it's starting to get that way south of the equator.

And this is one of the very best dunkels money can buy. 

It pours a beautiful, rich, dark colour with a strong, light head. These was the original Bavarian brewing style, before nice, light lagers arrived, and this was actually the first beer style brewed and served at the famous Hofbrauhaus in Munich.

But dunkels are still relevant, with complex flavours, strong mouthfeel and just damned fine drinking. 

This one smacks a little of honeyed oatmeal, toasted, and it has a light mouthfeel that defies the complexity of the flavours involved and the darkness of the brew.

Good stuff. Not quite the best dunkel, but right up there in the fight.

 

8/10
