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.

GG (2019) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2006 Bottle, May 2006.
Translucent and deep amber bronze in color with a creamy, whipped tan and booming frothy head. Pecan casings and copper kettles begin the aromatic tune, along with semi-sweet chocolate powder, rich toffee, and caramel & brown sugar dancing with milk chocolate fudge swirls. Chocolate roll flavor comes out from the get-go. This is a cocoa grain sack run amuck in a Bavarian bakery. Copper empowerment, along with chocolate toffee chews, brown-sugared oats and chocolate rye buns. Gentle, medium-bodied and quite an easy and exit strategy with the palate. The creamy head retention makes the mouth feel more blessed. Unsalted soft pretzels dabbed in mild milk chocolate powder comes through in the finish. Lovely.

Tap, Germany, April 2006.
Translucent and medium reddish-brown in color with a well retained tan head and vellum lacing. Chocolate brownies, cherry cordials, dark chocolate toffees and brown sugared dates provide an alluring aroma. Tasty milk chocolate and brandy sauce poured over dark fruited figs start the flavor. Chocolate pound cake and buttery toffee nodes with discreet amaretto and hazelnut accents provide more dimension and complexity. Medium-bodied with substantial palate locomotion, helping to perfectly aid the adequate carbonation. Liquid brown sugar, golden raisins and chocolate cake mix give us a heartfelt and endearing finish. Classic, milky, chocolatey splendor.

Erzengel (1931) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Leicht röstmalziger-frischer Geruch. Der Antrunk ist leicht wässrig-cremig und relativ mild. Zum Hauptteil hin entfaltet sich eine schöne röstmalzige cremigkeit. Nicht sehr voll und auch nicht sonderlich röstmalzig, aber schön frisch und sehr süffig. Im Nachgeschmack kommt eine mild-wässrige Röstmalznote etwas mehr zu Tage, die sich mit einer angenehmen Süßlichkeit lange auf der Zunge hält.
--> Ein schönes, mildes und sehr süffiges Dunkel. Nicht anspruchsvoll, aber sehr angenehm-mild!
Test vom 12.7.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,13,13,14,12,13 - 13,00

shadey (1867) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle. Deep plum color with only wisps of film on top. Aroma is sweet... I can’t find a good way to describe dunkels and its frustrating. They aren’t roasty, they aren’t smokey, they aren’t alcoholic, they aren’t nutty, they aren’t chocolaty. Even reading other ratings don’t help. Its pleasant and sweet.

JonMoore (1808) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown , clear and visibly quite carbonated, with a slim off-white head. Nice toasted malty aroma, with some caramel. Flavour is malty, nice light bitterness and some sweetness in the finish. Medium bodied and drinkable. Not overly complex but nice.

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle. Moderate brown with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is quite mild - moderately roasted malt, caramel, some milk chocolate and faint piney hops. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate and caramel, some aroma hops but almost no bitterness. Very mild beer overall and a bit boring, yet solid.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle. 4.7% ABV. Clear amber/copper with moderate fine tan head. Roasty sweet aroma with a bit of spicey hops and some raisin. Medium body with low carbonation. Light roasted malt flavors with some bready toast character and a bit of raisin. Finish is moderately dry with some coffee and spicey hop bitterness. I think this is quite a nice dunkel.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
I cant read the effing commercial description, but I’ll tell you what i think it says. 330 mil bottle from Bevmo. $2.29 eh! Rich red-brown with off white head. Nose is sweet like a cola and medium fruit. A bit of vanilla and light spice. Clove? Big smooth taste fills the mouth. Sweet brown ale feel turns to lager dryness. Leftovers combination of aspirin and sweet dark fruit. Nice beer.
