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: JUN 26, 2009 Rich color with a very caramel nose. There are also hints of chocolate and metal in the tates. A good dopplebock, but not a great one. 636315 ---re-rate--- 6/25/09 Aroma is sweet caramel and toast. Taste is sweet, a bit slick and fruity. Mouthfeel is full and viscous without cloying. Nice

Dark red, near black colored. Little beige head. Aroma has licorice, roastiness, sweet caramel and mild hops. Medium to full bodied. Licorice, chocolate, good hops and roastiness in flavor. Aftertaste lasts with conveniently sweet licorice and some berries.

One of the best Dopelbock’s I’ve sampled to date. Outstanding color and palate plus it is very smooth. Proud malts and delicious sweet caramel notes touching just a little too much. Well done.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a deep cola brown, a little bit reddish when held to the light, with half an inch or more of tan foam. Minimal head retention and lacing. Strong and sweet aroma - caramel malt, maplenut, some chocolate, and an earthy fruitiness. Bold flavor up front, very malty and both sweet and dry. Chocolate, brown sugar, and earthy maple dominate, with some subtle dried fruit in there as well. Finishes less sweet than the initial flavor, and leaves an oaky, nutty dry aftertaste. Now there’s sweet caramel and cheap chocolate soda in the aftertaste. Complex and flavorful. Not quite medium body, carbonation on the light side. With all those flavors going on, I find myself just a little bit disappointed that the flavor quits a bit early.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours cherrywood color with big off-white head. The aroma is pepper, clove, floral honey, and caramel. The flavor is caramel and pepper with a little bit of alcohol and clove. The finish sports a few spicy notes, but leaves very little in the way of aftertaste. All the flavors blend together very well.

millstadtguy (50) - Millstadt, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Poured a dark brown with a nice head. Very malty taste along with alcohol. Not bad. I just don’t think this is one of my favorite styles.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 (Bottled) Quite clear, dark red cola brown color with a smallish, tanned head. Very malty and caramely, very slightly sour and moderately fruity aroma with smoky hints. Very full-malty, slightly sour and roasty, surprisingly neutral (not cloyingly sweet despite the huge amount of malt) flavor with licorice hints, and a mildly bitter finish. Obviously no signs of alcohol here. Quite full-bodied, velvety and smooth-carbonated palate. A solid, enjoyable and warming, sweet and caramely-malty doppelbock from a great brewery. Not quite as balanced as the Weltenburger Asam-Bock, though, and the sweetness may be too much for some.
