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.

Strykzone (5350) - 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 (6019) - 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 (14007) - 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.

jb (2414) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Dark and very red, thin head. Toffee and faint chocolate in nose. Bit of cinnamon in the palate, a bit toas.ted. Drinkable in a session-sort of way, but certainly nothing special.

drpimento (2400) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Decent brew. Served with a nice head and good lace. Has a nice dark malty and dark fruity nose. Flavor is similar, Soft palate. Smooth at first going to a light tingle. Finsih is dark malt and a little sweetness. Color is a dark amber brown. Session beer for sure. Would like to try this on draft as well as make beer bread with it.

gwpom (297) - Akron, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2008
11.2 oz bottle. Don’t know what the description says, but it’s a dark brown, off white head looking dunkel. First sip and I can feel the ABV already. Dunkels aren’t my area of expertise, but I sure like the flavor of this one. Better than a 63. Edit - After finishing the beer, I upped the points. Very smooth, no alcohol aftertaste, a very nice drinkable beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours dark brown. Mild toasty nutty flavor up front. Water palate, not a very crisp estery finish, more watery caramel flavor. Decent, but didn’t stand out.

Palidor19 (3040) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
its nice and refreshing malty, although its thin on the palate front. slight caramel and toffee, good for having after work.
