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.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
08-Mar-10 (330-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This pleasant German dunkel pours a rich, clear, medium-brown body and a one inch foam cap that is dark-tan in color and shows good retention, slowly settling to a thin, but complete layer. The nose is very malty with dark bread, light earthiness, milk chocolate and some nuttiness. Fairly bready on the palate, with chocolate, lightly sweet cocoa, toast and nuts, and a hint of grassy hops in the finish. The beer is showing signs of some mild oxidation, enough to be distracting, but not enough to render the beer undrinkable. The oxidation, however, is not the beer’s fault. Light-medium in body, gentle carbonation, and some dryness in the finish. Some spotty lace on the glass. A decent beer, easy to drink and fairly straight forward.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of raisins, prunes, some chocolate. Tastes of light chocolate, some licorice hints, spicy, semi-sweet finish. Enjoyable.

kappldav123 (5163) - GERMANY - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good, beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts malty and dry, a bit rusty, some fruity notes of raisins, also some very nice smoky notes. Finish mild, well balanced, still malty and dry. Good dunkel!

11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours slightly darker than cola with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and peanuts. Flavor strong of nuts, roasted malts, butterscotch notes, and a little hops at the end. Full bodied and average texture. A pretty good beer.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
I cant read the effing commercial description, but I’ll tell you what i think it says. 330 mil bottle from Bevmo. $2.29 eh! Rich red-brown with off white head. Nose is sweet like a cola and medium fruit. A bit of vanilla and light spice. Clove? Big smooth taste fills the mouth. Sweet brown ale feel turns to lager dryness. Leftovers combination of aspirin and sweet dark fruit. Nice beer.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2010
Passable dunkel, overwhelmed by mollasses flavour. It poiurs very dark, with some decent head. Medium mouthfeel, on the sweetish side. Drinkable, but only if I am in the mood, not tonight.

Das dunkele Korbinian Bier ist eines der bekömmlichten und magenfreundlichten Biere. Das Bier hat eine schöne leicht malzig-dunkle Farbe. Alkohol: 5,1 % Stammwürze: 12,8 %

Bottle from big lots. Poured an auburn/brown color. Not much head. Aroma was quite nice; caramel, cocoa, nuts, bread, earth and sweet malt. Flavor was solid, but not quite as layered. Soft and smooth on the palate. Sweet, caramel and nuts with a short finish. Ok overall.
