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.

gwpom (295) - Akron, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2008
11.2 oz bottle. Don’t know what the description says, but it’s a dark brown, off white head looking dunkel. First sip and I can feel the ABV already. Dunkels aren’t my area of expertise, but I sure like the flavor of this one. Better than a 63. Edit - After finishing the beer, I upped the points. Very smooth, no alcohol aftertaste, a very nice drinkable beer.

Clear deep amber with medium off white head. Aroma was sweet with roasted malt, caramel and breadish notes. Flavour was quite sweet with roasted malt, caramel, toffee, ripe fruits and chocolate notes. Finished sweet. Quite full and nice.

kappldav123 (4807) - GERMANY - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good, beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts malty and dry, a bit rusty, some fruity notes of raisins, also some very nice smoky notes. Finish mild, well balanced, still malty and dry. Good dunkel!

BillKismet (3334) - 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.

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.
