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.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - 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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2011
Bottled. Clear brown colour with low white foam. Aroma from chocolate, sweet milk and caramel. Body is light, with light chocolate, sweet milk, suggestions of green pepper along with tad sewer. Pretty un-sweet for the style yet reminiscent of a milk stout with its blend of sweet and toast. Unexciting beer but pretty solid.

jkwood04 (3803) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2010
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.

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.

jaghana (3753) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle 50cl, a clear amber brown beer with low head. Nose is on sweet caramel, toasted caramel and bread touch. Aroma is on the same but the body is very watery, finish is low, hops notes are low too, bready, light burnt caramel.

Butters (3736) - 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.

jfb (3702) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2013
(bottle) pours a clear deep ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts, slightly metallic, with a hint of bread dough. flavour is mostly roasted malts and yeast, quite grainy, with a light herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

McTapps (3641) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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 (3641) - Wanne-Eickel, 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.

nearbeer (3631) - 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.
