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.

bhensonb (13850) - 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.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 3, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle from Big Lots!. Deep ruby in color on the pour. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smells like a Tootsie Roll. Good chocolate flavors, along with a bit of maltiness. Not very roasty. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Pours a dark brown red hue with a small light tan head that lasts only a minute. Aroma is faint but offers some chocolate and roasted malt. A bit of coffee in the flavor along with some unmalted barley and a hint of anise. It is dry and just a bit earthy but flavor, like the aroma, is faint. The excite-o-meter barely twitches with this one.

SkyCop32 (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2008
This is dark with a little head of tan color. This is supposed to taste like pralines, but I did not get that, but I did get some toffee and chocolate.

jonas (6673) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Dark chestnut, creamy brown layer on top. Fairly vineous nose on chocolate, like booze-filled pralines. Milk chocolate flavor base, light orange, a hint juniper. Medium to light body. A hint roast retronasal. Decent.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2008
The bottle that I picked up at the Friar Tuck in Bloomington, IL, listed this as 4.7% ABV. It poured a deep, clear reddish brown with a creamy, sustained ecru head that provided plenty of lace. It smelled of sweet wort and caramel and tasted pretty much the same but stopped just short of being cloying. Not bad.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle, 5.1%. Good malty aroma, slightly vinous and roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Small head, almost white. Good malty flavour, slightly vinous, nicely roasted and bready. Mild but very nice.
