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.

Deep rusty brown, thick lightly tanned head (with great lacing). Rich nose of fig, raisin, and caramel bread, with underlying vinous-like cherry waves. Malty up front with more fig, raisin, cherry bread and soft booze notes. Ends with a light German hop bitterness to keep the malt in check. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, malty finish. Glad I found this one out of the blue. A very nice doppel....

Not my favorite dopplebock, but pretty good. Very rich flavor. Quite smooth for the ABV. I would recommend it.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
This is a magnificent and complex brew. Appearance: Pours a mahogany brown with reddish hues. Light tan head. Smell: I instantly thought of chocolate and caramel, but quickly aromas of brown sugar, molasses, plumbs, rum raisins and soggy rum bread, toffee, and more filled the nose. Taste: Big malts create a perfect foundation for dozens of additional flavors. Dark caramel, rum, dark fruits (raisins and plumbs dates), loads of cookie dough and bready flavors; subtle suggestion of toffee and nuts and a hint of German Hops. The dominate sweet character is offset by a gentle bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: This beer is big and silky smooth. The velvety malt is oily slick and slides through the palate like a heavenly creamy silk. Drinkability: Who could make a Double Bock so drinkable? Never doubt Weihenstephaner. This beer is terrific and goes down with dangerous ease. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Very pleasantly malty aroma of the typical bock. Dark brown color. Tan head which disappated quickly. Not an overly cloying flavor that some bocks have. Bock aftertaste stays on the tongue for several minutes after drinking. I’d buy it again!

Pours deep red-brown with a small off-white head. Great toffee and caramel aroma with hints of plum, nuts, and chocolate. The flavor is more sweet malts with some nuttiness and a lightly lactic finish. Incredibly smooth for a big beer.

500ml bottle, served in a Celebrator glass. Clear brown beer with a nice light tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a tingly tartness on the tongue. Well balanced and tasty. Enjoyable and satisfyingly excellent dopplebock. On a par with Salvator and Optimator, but falls short of Celebrator.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-brown with a large lasting creamy tan head. Very nice aroma of dark malt, dark fruit, yeast, caramel, nuts and chocolate. Delicious creamy flavour of dark malt, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted nuts, hops and alcohol. Medium bodied. Wow, this was one of the best Doppelbocks I’ve ever had.
