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.

Sammy (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2010
Passable dunkel, overwhelmed by mollasses flavour. It poiurs very dark, with some decent head. Medium mouthfeel, on the sweetish side. Drinkable, but only if I am in the mood, not tonight.

mcdav2154 (436) - GERMANY - DEC 10, 2011
Looks like a normal dunkel but very small head. No lacing. Smell of caramel, nuts, and basement. Taste is high in malt with a low hop finish. Low in carbonation. Palate is mild in cream and some zestiness. One of the better dunkels i’ve had.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2006
(bottle) Clear, copper colour with a nice beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma, nutty with honey and notes and toffee; ashy and slightly alcoholic when it gets warmer. Bitter-sweet flavour; medium to light body, soft carbonation. Initially toast-malty,and nutty with herbal hoppy notes; also a bit sour-fruity on the palate with a touch of dried fruits; moderately dry, bitter and slightly fruity finish.

TheBeerGod (5176) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle. My label states this to be 4.7% ABV. Copper pour. Sturdy, slightly rocky, tan head. Nose is sweet malts, toffee, soft spicy hops, and dark fruit. Taste is slightly more hoppy with creamy malts, light toffee, dark fruit and yeast notes. Some dark bready flavors as well. Body is light-medium and has a strong but slick carbonation. Not overly bubbly. Ends with more dark fruits, bread notes, spicy hops, and toffee. Toasty malts come through as well.

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Shared with maniac and maltdawg. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and tan head. Vegetal, some smoke, and malty. Thin bodied, but pleasant. Not bad, but nothing special.
