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.

Bottle. [Courtesy of Hildigöltur, Thanks Jacob] Small beige fizzy head that mostly diminished. Clear flat light mahogany color. Aroma of bread, grain, fruit, floral and toasted malt. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet malty flavor. Bread like sweet lingering finish. What a nice and drinkable beer. 27-07-07

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.

bhensonb (11525) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle from Ledgers Liquor. 4.7% Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a mix of chocolate and veg - like anis. Medium body with sharp fizzy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, malt and a touch of anise. Rather dry in the finish. It’s a different flavor palate from most dunkels. More a sipper than a guzzler. Develops a coffee touch with time.

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.
