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.

nick76 (4322) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
The aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, cereal, and light hops. The appearance is medium brown with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall i like it.

EithCubes (5308) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle, 25th rating for this brew. Mine lists 4.7% abv. Lovely nutty nose, sweetly malty with some well-lagered funk and a hint of spice, Schwarzbrot with toast and just a hint of toffee. Coke-colored pour edging toward ruby with a dense, creamy tanned head. Smooth, creamy, slightly tart taste, light nuts with caramelized sugar, subtle toast, and slight funk. Medium-light body, very quaffable. No trace of alcohol, and classy all around. A lovely Dunkel, one to savor!

nearbeer (4392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2008
330 ml. Translucent, deep mahogany with a small head that lasts and leaves some soapy lace. Molasses, earthy cereal grain, and a hint of maize in the aroma. Front flavor is caramel-cocoa; turns ever-so-slowly to whole grain cereal sweetened with chocolate-molasses. Slight dry finish of flour and grassy cocoa. Light-medium body is nearly in the middle on all accounts: carbonation, mouthfeel (watery vs. sticky), and dryness.

Bottle. Chocolate and molasses malt aroma. Medium brown with moderate head. Chocolate and smoky malt flavor. Nice - a bit on the light side.

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Shared with maniac and maltdawg. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and tan head. Vegetal, some smoke, and malty. Thin bodied, but pleasant. Not bad, but nothing special.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Bottle on 06/25/08. Clear dark amber / brown body with a medium creamy tan head. Sweet nutty and bready aroma with some spicy hints. More nutty flavor and toasty breadiness with light dry bitterness in the finish. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle. 4.7% ABV. Clear amber/copper with moderate fine tan head. Roasty sweet aroma with a bit of spicey hops and some raisin. Medium body with low carbonation. Light roasted malt flavors with some bready toast character and a bit of raisin. Finish is moderately dry with some coffee and spicey hop bitterness. I think this is quite a nice dunkel.

McGarnigle (593) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle. Root beer looking brew. On the light side for the style, but smooth. Malty, slight hops, roasted coffee at the end. Not unusual for the style.

TheBeerGod (5690) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle. My label states this to be 4.7% ABV. Copper pour. Sturdy, slightly rocky, tan head. Nose is sweet malts, toffee, soft spicy hops, and dark fruit. Taste is slightly more hoppy with creamy malts, light toffee, dark fruit and yeast notes. Some dark bready flavors as well. Body is light-medium and has a strong but slick carbonation. Not overly bubbly. Ends with more dark fruits, bread notes, spicy hops, and toffee. Toasty malts come through as well.
