Passable dunkel, overwhelmed by mollasses like tootsie roll flavour, from the chocolate malts. It pours very dark, with some decent head. Medium mouthfeel. its on the sweetish side. Drinkable, but only if I am in the mood, not tonight. A tad coffee roast.

My Zötler came in a small 330ml/11.2 fl oz. bottle. On the bottle was an oval orange and white checker board patteren label with a drawing of a brown eagle at the top and a small very old picture of a German man wearing traditional German clothes pointing at something. The back label has all the mandatory US information and a Best Before date of 18/01/09.
When poured into a Dead Reckoning pint glass, this Korbinian beer was a dark mahogany brown with quite a few crimson red highlights along the sides. On top of this beer (if you could see it) was a small thin lightly tan colored head of foam. This thin head of foam had bad retention that left behind a tiny amount of tan rings and about 3 small spots of lace. It had a faint malty aroma of dark roasted malts, a splash of sweet caramel, and a subtle whiff of milk chocolate at the end. as you can tell, there wasn't much going on in the aroma department. Like in the aroma, there wasn't much in here either. The taste was malty (like it should have been) with roasted malts, a hint fo milk chocolate, a speck of caramel, and then finsihes up with a gentle hoppy touch. The mouthfeel was light with a alot of carbonation and with a crispy aftertaste of roasted malts and milk chocolate. It was just your run of the mill average German born Lager. Not bad, but not all that good either. Unlike the Weihenstephaner Korbinian, this one can be missed.
