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 (4024) - 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.

Butters (3983) - 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.

zach8270 (3913) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2009
(bottle - 330 ml) Clear amber pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, and a light nutty hint. Flavor is lightly toasted at the beginning with a lightly nutty caramel followup. Middle has some lightly roasted coffee notes. Finishes dry and lightly bitter with a mild lingering nut flavor.

rickgordon (3846) - 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.

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.

robinvboyer (3620) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Gorgeous dark copper pour, with a small eggshell head. A great dark, slightly fruit malt nose. Upfront breads and cereals, with a slight nutiness. The mouth feel is perfect, and the carb is soft and pleasant. The finish is lightly bitter, but still quite malty with notes of caramel, more breads and sweet nutty malts. Its a dialed back doppelbock, and i love it. Super drinkable, great beer.

BillKismet (3562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Brown amber with a thin froth cover. Easy malt ball aroma with some light roastiness translates to a similar flavor profile with some additional toastiness. Barely medium-bodied. May have appeal to crossover macro brew drinkers with its easy-bodied and toastiness.

alexanderj (3429) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle from big lots. Poured an auburn/brown color. Not much head. Aroma was quite nice; caramel, cocoa, nuts, bread, earth and sweet malt. Flavor was solid, but not quite as layered. Soft and smooth on the palate. Sweet, caramel and nuts with a short finish. Ok overall.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 22, 2012
The head is medium, the body redbrown. The taste is interesting, malty but a bit musty. Medium 7/8/8/8/10/8
