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: MAR 18, 2006 Bottle from Kevin... Happy, biatch?

Pours a lush mahogany with an aroma of molasses and plum. Nice head that leaves a clinging lace. Flavor is bitter molasses with a nice undertone of smooth, sweet jazz. Chuck Mangione is my real father. I don’t know why I wrote that; don’t ask. Free-form writing can kick ass. Palate is thick and coats the tongue well. This beer demands you to spend time with it. Thanks, Kevin. And no, I won’t sleep with you. Ever.

Dark brown color with a thick and fully lasting tan head. Fantastic aroma with hints of raisin, cherry, and brown sugar. Apples, molasses, cherry and some alcohol in the flavor. Gets sweeter and sweeter as it warms. Very enjoyable doppelbock.

There are a lot of bad beers in German, despite the country’s reputation for being master brewers. In fact, some my lowest rating of all time are for German beers. This is NOT one of them. It really shows why German brewers have gained the reputation they have. Starts with a light malty nose with some spice. Dark brown color and a foamy head. Sweet caramelly tastes, berry and chocolate notes in the middle. Like a dunkelbock with some wheat. Cinnamon spicy end. Creamy texture and a full body. Very smooth. Everything is perfectly balanced and the alcohol is in the background, but intensifies everything.

YogiBeera (2487) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Nice dark red color with a medium frothy head on top. Band aid, light chocolate and nutmeg nose. Smooth and silky texture. A bit alcohol, loads of malt, cinnemon and chocolate in the taste. Caramely. Just a nice tiny bit roasted in the finish. What a goodie! Thanks so much Saarlander for this treasure!

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Pours a ruby brownish with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty with a faint woody note. Flavor is crisp and sweet, with a nice bitter finish. A little simple, but it is German what else can you do with water malted barley and yeast.

thornecb (4507) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Pours a dark ruby/red. Nice persistent head of about 1/4 inch. Sweet, malty caramel notes. Nice roasted caramel flavor with creamy soft palate.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Inviting dark brown pour with nice tan, if somewhat limited, head. Strong aroma of sweet malts - ripe plums, raisins - and grain. The flavor is largely on the sweet side though there is some hop bitterness in the finish. The sweet malts taste of toffee and brown sugar. Medium body. Solid and drinkable doppel.

tomciccateri (1018) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Pouring a dense dark brown, the big malty aroma first strikes the senses, followed by the dry, dark malt flavors of this medium-bodied brew. A berry-like character is present as is a hint of chocolate. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear, dark orange lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is doughy and fruity. It smells of whole-grain bread, honey and a Red Eye made with lots of tomato juice and just about any premium, pale lager. For whatever reason, this totally works for me. The malty, breadsy flavor is full of dough and golden raisins. Full-bodied and silky with mild carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet, but mostly dry. World class effort!
