COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So schmeckt das Allgäu! Noch in den 20er-Jahren war dunkles Bier im Allgäu das meist getrunkene Bier der Region. Brilliante dunkle Kaffee-Farbe mit einem cremigen, feinporigen Schaum. Vollmundig, mit einem intensiven Malzaroma. Korbinian Dunkel ist eines der bekömmlichsten und magenfreundlichsten Biere. Grund: die milde Röstung des Braumalzes und die außergewöhnlich lange Kaltlagerung bei nur 0 °C. Nach alt-überlieferten (und gut gehüteten!) Rezepturen wird dieses Bier in unserer Familienbrauerei seit nun über 500 Jahren gebraut – und jedes Jahr wächst die Fan-Gemeinde.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
50cl bottle pours with a dark amber body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up sort of roasted malt notes, sort of chocolate malts and then some nuttiness followed by a touch of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a mix of sweet malts, nuttiness and slivers of chocolate malts. It then quickly picks up prunes and raisins as the modest chocolate note moves forward. Pretty nice stuff.

jfb (4070) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2013
(bottle) pours a clear deep ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts, slightly metallic, with a hint of bread dough. flavour is mostly roasted malts and yeast, quite grainy, with a light herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2013
Bruna con poca schiuma poco persistente. Aroma semplice, liscio con caratteri metallici e sprazzi di caramello. L’imbocco, da classica dunkel, è caratterizzato da un corpo agile e poco possente di impronta dolce. Di nuovo i caratteri metallici, malti tostati e un amaro erbaceo si fanno avanti. Chiude con una componente salina. Buona ed estremamente beverina. Insomma è tutto quello che chiediamo a una dunkel.

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in deep brown with nice head and bit bigger carbo than usual. Lot of malty coffee aromas which I don´t like. Definitely a quality beer but not hitting my nose nor my taste.

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep amber in colour with low head. Nose of malt. Taste of brown bread, cereals, low malt and roasted nuts. Not really that easy to drink and not really delicious.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
#236 Dunkelbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer und ordentlich bräunlicher Schaum. Röstmalziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist schön malzig, wunderbar zwischen Süße und Würze ausbalanciert. Im Sturz kommt noch eine schöne Hopfennote dazu. Ein gutes Dunkles! Test vom 28.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,11,12 - 11,80

TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 01/2013)
This one was a bit gusher. Deep red, not much head (beige head vanishing quickly). Strong aroma of dark bread and malta. Medium-bodied. Rye bread, caramel and soya sauce in the toasted flavor. Dried dark fruits. Simple, kvass-like flavor. Actually this tastes more a bock than typical dunkel, just lacks alcohol.
