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.

asheft (2760) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009
[bottle] Potent bready currant aroma with lots of tobacco and raisins. Dark brown-garnet with an off-white, wispy top. Sweet, biscuity flavour with a little brown sugar, raisins, and lots of bread crust. Low bitterness with balance towards sweet. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet, nutty finish. Probably a very good dunkel, just not a style that I like.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - SEP 8, 2009
A pretty nice dunkel here, and one that I didn’t expect to be quite as good as it was. Bought for $1.00 at Big Lots!. The beer pours out a deep purple/brown color with a 1" off-white head. Aroma is toasted bread, slightly sweet with a bit of nutty almond note. Earthy chocolate flavor, raisins, a bit of malted sweetness. Not bad at all.

shadey (1998) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle. Deep plum color with only wisps of film on top. Aroma is sweet... I can’t find a good way to describe dunkels and its frustrating. They aren’t roasty, they aren’t smokey, they aren’t alcoholic, they aren’t nutty, they aren’t chocolaty. Even reading other ratings don’t help. Its pleasant and sweet.

emacgee (4422) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pours a dark copper with some ruby highlights. The head is one finger thick and offwhite. The nose is earthy, lagery, malty, bready for sure, sweet, caramel, a tad nutty. The flavor is malty, kind of sweet, caramel, nutty. Tastes like an English Brown lagered.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle. Brown with no head. Nose is very malty. Flavor is equally malty. Didn’t get much of the chocolate others mention. Just lots of malt. Easy drinking, but not my style.

bhensonb (12746) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle from Ledgers Liquor. 4.7% Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a mix of chocolate and veg - like anis. Medium body with sharp fizzy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, malt and a touch of anise. Rather dry in the finish. It’s a different flavor palate from most dunkels. More a sipper than a guzzler. Develops a coffee touch with time.
