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.

Clear ruby red, sticky, frothy head. Malty, dark fruit aroma with some spicy hops. Big and malty, fruity and sweet with excellent dark caramel malt flavor. Huge, soft palate. Finishes very delicate for such a large beer. Quite graceful.

The pour is nearly black with a small tan head. The nose is dark fruit, toffee, maple and a few I just canít seem to grasp. The flavor is well balanced and I would to try this again.

16.9 oz bottle. Dark coffee in color with large creamy light brown head. Aroma of molasses and caramel. Complex flavors of brown sugar, molasses, maple, coffee and roasted malt. Quite sweet, candy-like. Ends with slight hint of bitterness and alcohol.

Pours a dark brown with a small-medium fizzy beige head. A dark malty beer with molasses, toffee, chocolate, caramel, and hints of dark fruit. A bit of roasted grain as well. Enjoyable doppelbock.

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 27, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 Strong malty aroma with chocolate and caramel accents. Dark caramel color, oddly the same color as Coke. Flavor of dark malts, chocolate and alcohol with a surprising hop finish. Overall a strong beer, but would prefer more balance and a cleaner finish.

March 2006 - I donít even know how to rate this one. I was shocked when eaglefan538 told me it was a dopplebock, because it certainly didnít taste like any dopple Iíve had (no sweet dark fruit flavor?). First off, Iíll say that this beer is definitely unique. Pours with seriously dark brown color, minimal head or lacing. The aroma just flew from the glass, like the flavor a mixture of chocolate malt balls and molasses. Those flavors, though, are way overdone. Have you ever had a piece of cake that, while good tasting, is just so rich that you canít finish it? Well, this is the beer version. Iím glad the 500 ml bottle was split with my father...I had trouble getting through my half.

I donít really get these black beers. The good ones taste only marginally better than the bad ones. I think the room for error is less. Black with a nice head. Chocolate and caramel and toffee. Good beer but not great.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2008
Bottled. Clear reddish brown colour with a small beige foam. Sweet and almost syrupy aroma of brown sugar, dried dark fruit, marzipan and nuts. Full sweet malty and sugary flavour of fudge, milky chocolate, syrup and butter. Long cloyingly sweet aftertaste of dark syrup, almonds and alcohol. Way too sweet, almost like a dark "malt likka".

Decent beer, but I prefer the dunkel hefe. Dark brown with a nice head. Quit a bit of hops...first Weihenstephaner Iíve tried with so much. Taste is good though, just not my favorite. Good mouthfeel...slightly thick and pleasant.
