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.

11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours slightly darker than cola with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and peanuts. Flavor strong of nuts, roasted malts, butterscotch notes, and a little hops at the end. Full bodied and average texture. A pretty good beer.

emacgee (4287) - 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.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Hildigöltur, Thanks Jacob] Small beige fizzy head that mostly diminished. Clear flat light mahogany color. Aroma of bread, grain, fruit, floral and toasted malt. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet malty flavor. Bread like sweet lingering finish. What a nice and drinkable beer. 27-07-07

nearbeer (4024) - 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.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - 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.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear darkish copper brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast, caramel malt and hops. Bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to sweetish notes of caramel malt and subtle fruity touches. Estery finish. Lively carbonation. Well-balanced and easily drinkable. A decent Dunkel.
