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.

MiP (13795) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle, 5.1%. Good malty aroma, slightly vinous and roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Small head, almost white. Good malty flavour, slightly vinous, nicely roasted and bready. Mild but very nice.

nearbeer (3842) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2008
330 ml. Translucent, deep mahogany with a small head that lasts and leaves some soapy lace. Molasses, earthy cereal grain, and a hint of maize in the aroma. Front flavor is caramel-cocoa; turns ever-so-slowly to whole grain cereal sweetened with chocolate-molasses. Slight dry finish of flour and grassy cocoa. Light-medium body is nearly in the middle on all accounts: carbonation, mouthfeel (watery vs. sticky), and dryness.

shadey (1911) - 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.

thewolf (11248) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle, bought @ SKY, Süderlügum.
Pours clear brown chestnut with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has good liqourice, mild roasted, some plums. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and kinda grainy dry mouthfeel. Flavour has good liqourice, nuts, some roasted malts. Fine grainy and light grassy bitterness. Elegant, simple and well made.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
50cl bottle pours with a dark amber body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up sort of roasted malt notes, sort of chocolate malts and then some nuttiness followed by a touch of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a mix of sweet malts, nuttiness and slivers of chocolate malts. It then quickly picks up prunes and raisins as the modest chocolate note moves forward. Pretty nice stuff.

Bamsen78 (3410) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear darkish copper brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast, caramel malt and hops. Bitter, hoppy onset, giving way to sweetish notes of caramel malt and subtle fruity touches. Estery finish. Lively carbonation. Well-balanced and easily drinkable. A decent Dunkel.

Grima (2122) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2011
into the glass pours a bright reddish purple beer. The foam disappears very quickly. The smell is strange sweet malty. The beginning part is very very chocolatey, coupled with some roasted malt and caramel. The aftertaste is bitter and chocolaty roasted malt. Something I would not expect from a German beer, this beer is the absolute chocolate hit. There can be no English Chocolate Stout tap tuned! I’m thrilled!
