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.

Smells like...dark German beer. Appearance is dark brown - almost black. The flavour is of a complex palate. The palate has definite notes of malt, with a sweetishness of caramel & chocolate. Overall, good. May be better served a bit colder.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Strong smoky, clove aroma - perfect for this style. Yes, it’s a doppelbock, but there’s the "dunkel" gene in this one and those aromas come shining through. Malty flavor on the front of the palate and smoky flavor (with that touch of bitterness) on the back of the palate. Very pleasant beer with some balance. Weihenstephaner does it again - they always deliver excellent brews.

Dark reddish brown. Not much carbonation and just a bit of lace. Sweetish, satisfying malt flavor. Aroma of molasses. Very good beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3578) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
.5cL bottle poured into dimpled mug. Dark mahogany colour with a thin tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and molasses. Flavour was nice, sweet caramel and molasses. Maybe a touch heavy in the finish but enjoyable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark brown-orange color. Head was one finger high, light tan, and left a bit of lace behind. Aroma was of malty molasses accented by a hint of campfire. Slightly sweet and full bodied. Molasses came out again in the flavor with some brown sugar and a splash of alcohol.

Bottle- 16.9 oz....No head, creamy brown pour. Aroma of a porter- sweet and chocolate. Chocolate and smoke on the nose and tongue, bit of mustiness lingers. Rich, complex, nice.

Nutty aroma with a dark, rich color and not much head. Ver nutty and full flavor from start to finish. Rich, smooth aftertaste containing hints of cocoa and coffee.

SDalkoholic (2298) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle purchased at Pizza Port bottle shop. This dunkles appeared and gave off the same impression a glass of soda pop would have because of the light tinted brown and fizzy film of head. In the aroma, a mild dose of caramel malt and chocolate notes can be found. I would say the flavor is the same as the deScription I mentioned about the aroma, but it will become more diluted and thin. Still a sweet and soft dunkles to be had, although, I won’t be picking this up again.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2007
1pt 0.9oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet malts and yeasts. Notes of bread, caramel, wood, and malt. Large tan foamy head that left good lacing and mostly diminished. Dark brown/ruby hue but clear. Flavor is mild but sweet and spicy with a medium finish. Palate is chewy and medium bodied. Watery and soft. A good woody, earthy, bready brew that really hit the spot. Worth a try.
