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.

Pours from the bottle a dark brown color with a ruby red tint, but somewhat opaque. A big, foamy and creamy tan head that had great retention. A mostly sweet aroma with some good fruit notes, including raisins and maybe prunes, maybe somewhat nutty. The taste is sweet at the onset with a mildly bitter finish, and more fruit notes. Palate is largely creamy, without a lot of carbonation, only subtle fizzyness. I liked this beer a good bit, wasn’t really sure what to expect and was pleased.

Pours a brown/copper color. Hints of sweet malt, slight molasses, and nuts. Taste is sweet with slight smoke and dry, nutty finish. I was surprised by this brewer. I’ve never had a beer from them. I purchased a gift pack that has five of their bees in it. I am looking forward to the othes. Petty good.

portermax55 (118) - Canterbury, Connecticut, USA - NOV 30, 2007
16.9oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark copper with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy aromas of roasted malts, molasses, and some hints of campfire smoke. Flavor is of malts, some spice, and caramel with a sweet, nutty finish. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and the 7.4% is hidden very well. Great brew.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Smells like...dark German beer. Appearance is dark brown - almost black. The flavour is of a complex palate. The palate has definite notes of malt, with a sweetishness of caramel & chocolate. Overall, good. May be better served a bit colder.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Strong smoky, clove aroma - perfect for this style. Yes, it’s a doppelbock, but there’s the "dunkel" gene in this one and those aromas come shining through. Malty flavor on the front of the palate and smoky flavor (with that touch of bitterness) on the back of the palate. Very pleasant beer with some balance. Weihenstephaner does it again - they always deliver excellent brews.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Dark reddish brown. Not much carbonation and just a bit of lace. Sweetish, satisfying malt flavor. Aroma of molasses. Very good beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3653) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
.5cL bottle poured into dimpled mug. Dark mahogany colour with a thin tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and molasses. Flavour was nice, sweet caramel and molasses. Maybe a touch heavy in the finish but enjoyable.

Dark ruby-red colour. Slightly smoked aroma. Flavours are smoked as well, with caramel and chocolate. Finishes sweet.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark brown-orange color. Head was one finger high, light tan, and left a bit of lace behind. Aroma was of malty molasses accented by a hint of campfire. Slightly sweet and full bodied. Molasses came out again in the flavor with some brown sugar and a splash of alcohol.
