This is a very tasty dunkel, very smooth yet quite characterful.

Dark reddish bornw, it has a smallish, dense tan head slowly shrinking and leaving a bit of lace.

The aroma is toasted grain, whole wheat bread crust, hints of rootbeer, caramel, and maple syrup.

The taste is strongly maple syrup and caramel at first with toasted bread crust, hints of bark, pepper and anise. It's very flavourful with a lightly bitter finish and it's not dry. It's a little oily, very smooth, and zesty.

Had on tap in Fussen, Germany. Poured into a tall pint glass.

L: Pours a dark cloudy mahogany color with three fingers of off-white head.

S: Freshly baked dark bread. Toasted malts/grains and faint hops.

T/F: Semi-sweet toasted malts and breads. Earthy and clean. Mild hops at the finish with no aftertaste. Moderately carbonated.

O: Great tasting beer and one of my favorite dunkels so far in Germany. Great balance and excellent session beer. More please!

Beer review from BA Mag Dec 2007.

Privat Brauerei Zötler has over 550 years of real history that spans over 20 generations of brewing. Yeah, you don't hear that too often.

Dull mahogany color, great clarity. The head retention is sufficient enough as it lasts through the session and leaves a ring or two on the glass. Smells of fresh-baked dark bread, lots of complex dry malt character in the nose with a hint of herbal hop. Unwavering medium body holds a popping crispness and smooth mouthfeel. The depth of the malt backbone starts to unravel with the first sip--dark bread, toasted grain and a little grassy. The malt sweetness is at a perfect level and is balanced very well by a subtle hop that pulls more flavor than bitterness. Finishes semisweet with a long trail of toasty malt flavor.

Every once in a while we come across a beer that is epic within taste and spot-on to style. It's hard to pinpoint perfection, but Korbinian Dunkel comes pretty close to it.
