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 50 cl. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and a smell of caramel, brown sugar, honey and malt. The flavor is malty sweet with brown sugar and a hoppy bite. I would have liked it a bit less hoppy. Good, but nothing more than that

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Pours a golden amber with a tight beige head. Aroma is caramely, doughy and sweet with no significant hoppiness. Flavor is rich with caramel and toasted malts, ripe fruits, a faint hop bite, and some smoky undertones. The finish is sweet and lingering with mild alcohol warmth. Extremely well balanced; bold without being overpowering. Very nice!

illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Poured into my Eichhof bier mug. Pours a dark transparent brown with highlights ranging from ruby to orange. Nice fluffy white head of two fingers. Not much lacing. Nose is very dark, with a kind of fruitcake-like sweet doughy maltiness. Some milk chocolate influence as well. Tastes very sweet, with a lot of rich malt and sugary dark fruit notes like date and prune. The chocolate note comes out in the flavor, as well as a distinct flavor of fresh grainy bread. Very smooth on the palate, with great carbonation and a nice medium-full body. A bit too sweet to be incredibly drinkable.

Dark dark red when held up to the light. At first its a bit heavy and sweet, but its gets smoother as you drink it. Funny how that happens with big beers. Its got a fruity, estery flavor. Not much bitterness at all.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Pour is ruddy dark brown with a thin sticky light brown head...smell is bright and sweet with some dates, brown sugar, cola, definitely some signature yeast...thick and soft mouthfeel, with some nice malty chewiness...the initial taste is very uninspiring...sweetness, with molasses and caramel then just prune juice...I don’t really get any of the smoke that some of the other raters mention...some nutty peanut skin flavors toward the finish...leaving sort of a copper/penny aftertaste...

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Raisin, brown sugar, and milk chocolate nose. Deep burnt orange/brown. Large long lasting head. Deep smooth sweetness. Nicely rounded...

mmmbeer (1392) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Pint bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured semi transparent light black, brown head laced away, aroma of sweetened dark molasses, caramel, and malt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, some smoke quality to it in the middle intertwined with sweetness, heavy roasted malt notes on backend. Knew I should have bought more than one bottle...

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2008
Flaske. Mørkebrun øl, næsten stout agtig i farven. Sød og maltet i duften. Dette gik endnu mere igennem i smagen. Typisk doppelbock men nuancerne druknede en smule i den søde maltbase.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle Black pour with decent tan head. Slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Actually smells and tastes pretty schwartzbier-ish. Good brew though, enjoyable.

markwise (5195) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2008
This is a pretty good doppelbock. Pours with a nice cream colored head. Dark brown beer with malt, smoke some chocolate (?). Middle- to highly rated doppel.
