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.

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.

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.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of raisins, prunes, some chocolate. Tastes of light chocolate, some licorice hints, spicy, semi-sweet finish. Enjoyable.

Erzengel (2399) - 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!

Decent brew. Served with a nice head and good lace. Has a nice dark malty and dark fruity nose. Flavor is similar, Soft palate. Smooth at first going to a light tingle. Finsih is dark malt and a little sweetness. Color is a dark amber brown. Session beer for sure. Would like to try this on draft as well as make beer bread with it.

Bierkrug (2133) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2009
500 ml bottle in Germany. Nice dark color with slight red touch. A fine light and easy drink for a Dunkel. Nice toasted malty aroma with a cholate zing. A very good beer.

#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

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2013
Bruna con poca schiuma poco persistente. Aroma semplice, liscio con caratteri metallici e sprazzi di caramello. L’imbocco, da classica dunkel, è caratterizzato da un corpo agile e poco possente di impronta dolce. Di nuovo i caratteri metallici, malti tostati e un amaro erbaceo si fanno avanti. Chiude con una componente salina. Buona ed estremamente beverina. Insomma è tutto quello che chiediamo a una dunkel.

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.
