Friedrich Hauf 1901 Dunkel

Brewery: Hauf
Town:
Dinkelsbühl
Style:
Dunkles
Color: chestnut

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

Palate:
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 smoothes into the moreish bittersweet finish. Less so as it warms but still true enough to form to be appreciated.

Back to the beer list.
