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.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep amber in colour with low head. Nose of malt. Taste of brown bread, cereals, low malt and roasted nuts. Not really that easy to drink and not really delicious.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in deep brown with nice head and bit bigger carbo than usual. Lot of malty coffee aromas which I don´t like. Definitely a quality beer but not hitting my nose nor my taste.

Strykzone (5896) - 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.

TheBeerGod (5685) - 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.

kappldav123 (5583) - 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!

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.

EithCubes (5304) - 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!

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2007
Bottled. Copper brown coloured. Malty aroma of bread and caramel. Malt, dark bread and caramel in the flavour. Medium bodied.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2011
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Reddish brown color. Sweet malty, worty, bready and nutty aroma. Sweet mellow malty taste with dark bread, nuts, toffee, caramel and cocoa.
