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.

asheft (2968) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009
[bottle] Potent bready currant aroma with lots of tobacco and raisins. Dark brown-garnet with an off-white, wispy top. Sweet, biscuity flavour with a little brown sugar, raisins, and lots of bread crust. Low bitterness with balance towards sweet. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet, nutty finish. Probably a very good dunkel, just not a style that I like.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 01/2013)
This one was a bit gusher. Deep red, not much head (beige head vanishing quickly). Strong aroma of dark bread and malta. Medium-bodied. Rye bread, caramel and soya sauce in the toasted flavor. Dried dark fruits. Simple, kvass-like flavor. Actually this tastes more a bock than typical dunkel, just lacks alcohol.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014
Geruch malzbrotig, schwach röstig. Beginnt entschlossen dunkelmalzig, leichte Röstnote. Mitte würzig, dunkelmalzig. Herbwürzig abschließend, bittert moderat nach. In Ordnung.

jb (2933) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Dark and very red, thin head. Toffee and faint chocolate in nose. Bit of cinnamon in the palate, a bit toas.ted. Drinkable in a session-sort of way, but certainly nothing special.

SkyCop32 (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2008
This is dark with a little head of tan color. This is supposed to taste like pralines, but I did not get that, but I did get some toffee and chocolate.

DarkElf (3051) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
08-Mar-10 (330-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This pleasant German dunkel pours a rich, clear, medium-brown body and a one inch foam cap that is dark-tan in color and shows good retention, slowly settling to a thin, but complete layer. The nose is very malty with dark bread, light earthiness, milk chocolate and some nuttiness. Fairly bready on the palate, with chocolate, lightly sweet cocoa, toast and nuts, and a hint of grassy hops in the finish. The beer is showing signs of some mild oxidation, enough to be distracting, but not enough to render the beer undrinkable. The oxidation, however, is not the beer’s fault. Light-medium in body, gentle carbonation, and some dryness in the finish. Some spotty lace on the glass. A decent beer, easy to drink and fairly straight forward.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle. Moderate brown with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is quite mild - moderately roasted malt, caramel, some milk chocolate and faint piney hops. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate and caramel, some aroma hops but almost no bitterness. Very mild beer overall and a bit boring, yet solid.
