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.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
08-Mar-10 (330-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This pleasant German dunkel pours a rich, clear, medium-brown body and a one inch foam cap that is dark-tan in color and shows good retention, slowly settling to a thin, but complete layer. The nose is very malty with dark bread, light earthiness, milk chocolate and some nuttiness. Fairly bready on the palate, with chocolate, lightly sweet cocoa, toast and nuts, and a hint of grassy hops in the finish. The beer is showing signs of some mild oxidation, enough to be distracting, but not enough to render the beer undrinkable. The oxidation, however, is not the beer’s fault. Light-medium in body, gentle carbonation, and some dryness in the finish. Some spotty lace on the glass. A decent beer, easy to drink and fairly straight forward.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours dark brown. Mild toasty nutty flavor up front. Water palate, not a very crisp estery finish, more watery caramel flavor. Decent, but didn’t stand out.

RexTalionis (2618) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours dark amber in color with a small tan head. Dark fruity notes, some nuttyness and sweet maltyness in aroma. Roasted, sweet malty taste with some bitter dark chocolatey notes as well. Tasty.

asheft (2553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009
[bottle] Potent bready currant aroma with lots of tobacco and raisins. Dark brown-garnet with an off-white, wispy top. Sweet, biscuity flavour with a little brown sugar, raisins, and lots of bread crust. Low bitterness with balance towards sweet. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet, nutty finish. Probably a very good dunkel, just not a style that I like.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 3, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle from Big Lots!. Deep ruby in color on the pour. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smells like a Tootsie Roll. Good chocolate flavors, along with a bit of maltiness. Not very roasty. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
#236 Dunkelbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer und ordentlich bräunlicher Schaum. Röstmalziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist schön malzig, wunderbar zwischen Süße und Würze ausbalanciert. Im Sturz kommt noch eine schöne Hopfennote dazu. Ein gutes Dunkles! Test vom 28.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,11,12 - 11,80

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - SEP 8, 2009
A pretty nice dunkel here, and one that I didn’t expect to be quite as good as it was. Bought for $1.00 at Big Lots!. The beer pours out a deep purple/brown color with a 1" off-white head. Aroma is toasted bread, slightly sweet with a bit of nutty almond note. Earthy chocolate flavor, raisins, a bit of malted sweetness. Not bad at all.

Kristall-König (2318) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014
Geruch malzbrotig, schwach röstig. Beginnt entschlossen dunkelmalzig, leichte Röstnote. Mitte würzig, dunkelmalzig. Herbwürzig abschließend, bittert moderat nach. In Ordnung.
