Our Korbinian, the full-bodied, dark Doppelbock with light brown foam, wins beer-lovers over with a balance of fruity hints of plums and figs, a dark malt aroma - reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Its roasted flavour goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as venison and poultry. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark brown body, healthy head. Sweet and coffee nose. Toffee and coffee malty flavours. Really smooth and enjoyable. Extra points for cool label.

(Bottle) Pours a brown color with a khaki colored head. One-dimensional aroma of dark malts and toffee. Taste includes roasted malt, a touch of smoke, nut, maybe some light cocoa, and alcoholic warming towards the end. The beer is a little on the sweet side. Average mouthfeel and carbonation level. A decent beer, but somehow it left me wanting more.

douglas88 (8463) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle from Lee’s liquors in Las Vegas. Pours a dark brown body with a nice thick beige head. The aroma was just great; powerful fruit, spices, and malts. The taste was yeasty, with some rye bread, a hint of cloves, some sweet german candy, and a nice fruity aspect. It goes down really smooth and is damn tasty. A nice beer for sure.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Deep ruby colour with thin deep beige head. Lovely fruity malt aroma. A dunkles starkbier apparently. Decent dark beer with decnt dark cherry/plum/grapey flavour. Bit bready, some roasty toasty malts. So do I like it? Well it’s not bad, but not really sure. I mean the beer is good, just not sure it’s in my zone.

Earthy malts, roasted and grainy bready flavor. Smooth on the palate with a sweeter finish. Almost a big meaty in the aftertaste. Mineral and metallic finish.

Pours a very dark red brown (but not black) with a medium khaki colored head. Aroma is a little fruitier than I expected, especially without any hefeweizen yeast. There’s some chocolate, cherries, rye toast tanginess, and toffee. Pretty pleasant mix, more to offer than that, but easy to sum up. Nutty chocolate flavor with some dark rye toast, a little cake, nuts, finishes with a toast, coffee and slight dark chocolate finish, but the aftertaste kinda cloys a bit. In beers like this, German yeast tends to add a nice tangy contrast, and the fruit on the nose is a plus. Medium bodied, fairly high carbonation, and despite the full flavor, it doesn’t have a good creamy enveloping mouthfeel. Pretty tasty stuff.

Big thanks to joss for the bottle. Looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very fine foam. Tastes very strong and malty, well balanced finish. Very drinkable and good doppelbock!

Strykzone (6763) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Dark brown with red highlights and a nice tan foam. Aroma is full of dark fruit and sweet malt. Flavor is similar with some toffee, and yeast. It is a fairly complex flavor and is delicious. Great feel, too.

Courtesy of Nate. Crystal clear burgundy with a strong beige head. Smells incredibly fruity and spicy with caramel and brown sugar. Very smooth, full and creamy body. Strong and clean caramel and toffee tastes with a big fruity background. Easy drinking and hides the alcohol well.
