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.

Bottle. Chocolate caramel, molasses, and malt aroma. Reddish brown color with decent head for a doppelbock. Sweet prune and German rye bread flavor. Moderate bitter finish but little astringency. Very smooth. Not the strongest flavored doppelbock but that’s what I really like about it. Very nice.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Dark ruby appearance with a large off white head and light lacing. Roasted caramel and chocolate malt aroma accented with dark fruit. Very smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel. Complex, fruity taste with hints of molassas and black bread. One little harsh note at the very end of the finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9588) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours caramel nut brown with a small foamy/creamy light brown head and some light lined lacing. Yeast (barn, dough) and wheat lightly roasted malt (straw) aroma with hints of grape and German noble hops. Sweet malt caramel wheat and warming flavor with low acidity and well balanced malt hop combination that finishes a touch creamy with very little aftertaste. Medium to dark full bodied palate that is warming and somewhat carbonated, yet easy on the tongue.

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle. Dark red/brown with large tan head. Roasted, malty, bready aroma with caramel and some dark fruits. Very nice. Smooth, malty, chocolatey, sweet, with a nice spicey and bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good doppelbock.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Korbinian has no trouble forming a tall dense head of mocha that cascades down, filling the glass with dark brown beer. Lots of toasty caramel malt aroma. The flavor is malty but not overdone with a light palate. Above average, but not on the same scale as their wheat beers.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Creamy texture and roundness in mouthfeel. Big alcohol feel. Burnt honey sweetness with some dried fruits and raisons. Alcohol presence increases markedly as it warms. And strangely the mouthfeel thinned out, almost to the point of point deduction.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Toasty brown color with a tan head. Malty smells of raisins and figs. Mmm. Very smooth with a chocolatey middle and slightly peppery finish. I had to split the bottle but certainly wouldn’t mind having one all to myself.

stouby (3716) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle, at home. Dark red with light brown large head, almost lasting, fine lacings. Arome heavy malty (bread, caramel, brown sugar, raisin). Flavor moderate sweet and yet also bitter. Medium body, oily/creamy, soft carbonated. Strong in alcohol.

Dogbrick (7898) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2005
I was not sure what to expect based on the labelling, but turns out this is a pretty good Doppelbock. Dark chestnut color with a medium thick tan head. Thin, stringy lacing. The aroma is very malty and bready. Medium-bodied and smooth with a nice smoky malt flavor. Sweet caramel and light hops balance well together. The finish is mildly bitter and roasty. All in all an above average Doppelbock.

DrnkMcDermott (2790) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Bottled. Big smell of caramelly malts when opened. Pours deep brown under a thick brown head. Taste is very sweet, but not cloying, with a touch of dark honey, and perhaps a slight banana weizen note. Alcohol is pretty subtle until you get further into the glass. There’s a lot of beer packed into this .5 liter bottle.
