COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A double bock beer that has what it takes. Not just for lovers of strong beer. With a malty aroma and great taste, our Korbinian is a true beer speciality. It goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as wild roasts and fowl.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Brown. Sweet caramally taste. Smooth. Reminded me of a Belhaven Wee Heavy. Very Good but not great.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish dark brown colour with a little head. Very weak aroma with hints of caramel, sweetness and maltness. Sweet flavour of chocolate and malt very clean and ends up little alcoholic.

EithCubes (5085) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle. Opaque ruby-rosewood pour with a short yellow-tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, grape, malty, and a touch of alcohol. Typical bock taste with a little more dark malt than expected. Full-bodied and velvety smooth; not really creamy or oily, but slightly warming. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Fruity (grape, mostly) aftertaste. Really pleasant and mild - I’d say this is a very refined Doppelbock which seduces you with subtle flavor rather than slamming you with it.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2006
No hops present whatsover. Tasted like Malta. Too sweet for my taste. Beautiful dark ruby color with foamy tan head.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2006
Red-brown with short-lived beige head. Very strong sweet chocolate-malt aroma. Flavour is hard to define, it has sweet fruit without a hop presence. Overall it is just cloyingly sweet with a bit of alcohol in the finish.

Ratman197 (10186) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2006
500ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a diminishing brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, raisins, a hint of smoke and a bit of molasses. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark fruit, roasty malt, some molasses and a hint of smoke with a lingering bittersweet finish.

Lot 5484. Poured a burgundy brown color with a generous head that lasted quite nicely and provided good lacing. This one had a vinous and dark fruit type chocolate aroma. The flavor was similar with figs, caramel, and raisins featured over top of some chocolate and licorice that came out in the later flavors. A little bit of the maibock doughiness in there. The finish contained some hops, slightly grassy after aftertaste. Mouthfeel was moderate for a bock, but a little light to average for a doppelbock. An enjoyable 800th review.

vyvvy (4130) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours dark brown with a reddish tint - rich tan pillowy frothy head. Aroma has rich chocolate and cocoa malt (as in a malt shake) - very rich aroma. Medium think mouthfeel with just a little soft carbonation. Taste starts off rich and has roasted chocolate malt - hints of toffee and cream are mixed in there. The finish has spiciness and hoppiness - odd finish for a dopplebock. Overall a truly great beer.

demitriustown (1088) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Pours a clear brownish red with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is wonderful malty, caramel, a slight smoked aroma, light chocolate notes, hops, and dark fruit. Taste is a distinct mouth filling maltiness, caramel, chocolate, still a little bit of smoke, lovely combination of flavors. Palate is lightly bitter and a light malt texture. This is the first time I saw this in the store and I’d have to say I’m pleasantly surprise. A very nice doppelbock, definitely recommended.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark deep brown with a thick tan head. Sweet nose with caramel and toffee. The flavor is intense. One of the sweeted dopplebocks I have tried, it is nonetheless very well put together. Sweet malts with a clean smoky finish. An excellent dopplebock!
