Friedrich Hauf 1901 Dunkel

Friedrich Hauf 1901 Dunkel

Brewery: Hauf
Color: chestnut

Head: off-
white, rocky
grainy, hoppy
Body: medium

malty, some chocolate, hint of roast
Finish: lingering, semi-dry, bittersweet

Served: on tap at Den Wilden Mann

Impression: Good looking Dunkel and nice to see it still on tap despite its lack of popularity. Once this generation of older women dies out, it will too. It’s a shame as even though it’s not as dry as their other beers, it’s certainly not sweet in the least. It’s got a nice chocolatey note which smooths into the moreish bittersweet finish. Less so as it warms but still true enough to form to be appreciated. Bottle I brought home seemed simpler but still good.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
