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.

500 mL bottle shared with Duane. Complex aroma of caramel, roasted malts, maybe just a faint hint of the booze as well. Creamy mouthfeel at the beginning that coats my tongue, but gives way to a slightly watery finish. I havent made any observations on the flavor that are any different from whatís already been said, but this is an all around good doppelbock. Good balance of lots of malt at the beginning with just a hint of hops at the end. Immy was right, this is a great bargain

Half liter bottle. Poured a beautiful mahogany with a foamy light brown head. Aroma of toasted malt and licorice. A smooth, well balanced beer. One of my favorites.

500 ml bottle. Pours a deep brown with a light brown head. Rich, complex, malty nose, somewhat sweet, molasses with hints of tobacco. Flavor is molasses, malt, sweet. Awesome balance achieved with the hops! About the most balanced beer Iíve had to date! As it warms a bit, some toasted flavors shine through, and bit of caramel and coffee. Finish is a touch dry, smooth and clean, leaving a bit of malt to remember it by. Body is a touch thin for a doppelbock, but it is the only tiny fault in a great beer. How can this be so cheap? At under three bucks, a huge bargain!

Nice dark redish brown color poured a nice head out of the bottle. Good lacing thru out. Enjoyed this beer which had a mild malty aroma with a bit of alcohol present. Nutty taste very pleasent and smooth finish.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 21, 2005
(500 ml bottle from http://hitimewine.com) Body is the color of birch beer. Head is rich-looking, creamy, biscuit-colored. Good lacing. Aroma is awesome - sweet malt, honey, raisins, molasses, caramel, hay. Dark, rich, sweet doppelbock taste. A little dry. This is excellent. Doesnít finish quite as well as some of the other doppels I have had, so that is my only complaint.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2010 A little thin in the mouth for a doppel but great for a dunkel. Beautiful dark brown body with a huge coffee colored head. Good complexity of toasted malt, sour mash, sweet toffee, and licorice. Lightly hopped, but great balance. // Tried again ... great brown body, small tan to coffee brown head, very little lace ... great sweet nose, taste of sweet malts and chocolate milk (!) in perhaps the most chocolate intense chocolate free beer Iíve ever tasted. A little too easy to drink.

Roasted and nutty flavours, almost port-like character. Grassy hops give the needed bitterness. A good beer.

Itís been a long time since Iíve had this, not generally available in northern NJ, so these ratings are approximate. All I remember is that it was good.

I sampled the 500 ml bottle, which yields an impressive dark amber to brown bodied ale with a huge tan cascading head that leaves excellent lacing. Upfront, there is a broad malty aroma with hints of molasses, fresh baked bread and alcohol. The honey sweet palate entry supplies a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Mid-palate features caramel, coffee, raisin and ripe banana. The first-rate low hop finish is decidedly smooth but manages to counterbalance the robust malt body; there is a touch of alcohol. Ausgezeichnet!

Bottled. Dark copper color. Sweet aromas of prunes and toffee. Flavor is a bit sweet as well with notes of prunes, caramel, tobacco and a bit of alcohol.
