pours a deep garnet color w/ a fluffy off-white head dissipates quickly leaving a moderate lacing in my stange ; not a strong smell, steely grain and some caramel and dark fruit notes ; a crisp, malty flavor, bready malts and caramel with a touch of plums, some floral hops present but very subtle ; a light bodied beer w/ plenty of co2, a dry, light creamy palate overall ; a very drinkable brew, i enjoyed this dunkel quite a bit...

A - Brown with reddish highlights. Light tan head quickly falls to ring.
S - A lot of toasted dark malts, grainy, maybe some dark fruit, a touch of caramel. Nice
T - The dark malt starts it out with a nice rich sweetness. Really light hops on the back end with a slightly dry finish.
M/F - Between light and Medium in body. Moderately carbonated it is both smooth yet active with the carbonation.
D - This is a good one. Just found it the other day and had never heard of it. I would be pleased to drink a few of these.

Appearance: Pours a lovely clear mahogany with a thick, beige head that sticks a lot of lace
Smell: Crusty wheat bread with undertones of cocoa powder and caramel
Taste: Opens with a cocoa powder dusted caramel flavor that is joined by the wheat bread crust at mid-palate; while it verges on sweetness, the grainy flavors hold it in check after the swallow
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate but spritzy carbonation
Drinkability: Just a superb dunkel

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.

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.
