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.

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

This beer pours a deep rich brown with a medium tan head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The smell is roasted malts and chocolate. The flavors are awesome! chocolate, maybe some figs with a good heaping of dark malts balanced out with a god hop backbone! not a lively beer as it shouldn’t be, but dry and mellow with a sweet chocolate flavor that really lingers! Well crafted beer!

The pour reveals a clear reddish brown color with a thick tan head. Very nice aroma of fruits, rich malt and caramel. The flavor is also very good, red fruits are accompanied by lush, rich malt and caramel. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Pint sized bottle. Very dark, like a schwartz beer or stout. Tan head, w/lots of lacing. Aroma of molasses & concord grape. Sweet, with nice chocolate bitterness mellowing the sugars, although some unpleasant licorice tones come through on some sips. Earthy hops ending.

Pours a dark copper color with a tan head. Aroma is of caramel malts, dark fruits, molasses, roasted malts, and some smoke. Thick on the palate. Flavor is very much the same with a dry slightly bitter finish from some floral hops. Pretty good.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2008
This is not my favorite example of this style, but nonetheless is a very well made beer. Has a slight heaviness, almost syrupy on the palate. The aroma is wonderful, with almost a peaty smokiness. Chocolate and cinnamon clove spice dominate the flavor. I can imagine this is a wonderful food beer.

16.9 oz bottle-A dark brown body with a small tan head and an aroma of sweetness, malt, molasses, smoke, and fruity esthers. Taste of the same with malts, chocolate, caramel, and slight coffee coming out throughout this medium to full bodied brew. I’m not a big fan of this style but I tink this brew is very well made. Great beer.

Pours a nice deep reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty with a bunch of caramel malt coming through. Taste is very smooth and malty, with of course lots of caramel flavor. Very good, but not as good as Celebrator or optimator. Still a great doppelbock.

This proves to me that Doppelbocks are one of the most enjoyable styles in beer IMO. Great brown color with a light brown head. Sweet but dry, easy to drink yet full bodied. Slight caramel sweetness and maybe dried fruit. Very enjoyable, would like to hav again if i remember to get around to it.
