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 a burnt sienna with a cloudy body that has a thick tan head. The nose is sweet with a sour, funky, nutty, aroma....tough to make out other flavors. The taste is fantasic, caramel malt, herbal tea, tart bitterness. The sweetness brings forth so many flavors......dark fruits, raisins, plum, very creamy, roasted nuts. This is a very tasty doppelbock!

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 Nearly opaque dark brown with reddish hues and a full off white head. Aroma of plums and sweet malts. Complex prunes and raisins with maple syrup flavor; notes of dark chocolate and sweet red wine also come through. Very interesting and well balanced, flavorful. Tastes even better on tap!

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
Bottle (500ml). In my Erdinger Weiss glass. Poured deep clear mahogany with a huge foamy-creamy lasting tan head. Sweet roasty nutty/chocolate caramel malt and bready yeast aroma, some herbal hops and alcohol bitterness in background - very rich and clean. The taste is a little burnt - as the aroma, only moreso, and burnt - nice. Mouthfeel is a little watery, but still this is syrupy, not much carbonation considering that impressive head, and leaves a sticky bitter, chocolate and fruit aftertaste - solid doppel.

Pours a deep caramel color with a large head that fades quickly. Aroma is quite intense and matches the taste of the beer. Rich, nutty, chocolatey, toffee taste. Sweet and creamy. Oily, silky smooth consistency. Alcohol taste is not very noticeable. Makes for a nice dessert/after dinner drink. Overall, the best dopplebock I have had to date.

Aggie80 (788) - Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Dark brown cola color with an off white head and some lacing. There is a definite malt and yeastflavor with a smooth earthy finish. A hearty brew that stood up to the brussel sprouts I had with the meal.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Big, molasses-sweet beer. Pours rudy-brown with a small tan head. Caramel aroma. Thick caramel and malt flavor that seems to coat your tongue. Alcoholic bite in the finish. Exceptionally smooth and just heavy enough to enjoy.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Brown. Sweet caramally taste. Smooth. Reminded me of a Belhaven Wee Heavy. Very Good but not great.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish dark brown colour with a little head. Very weak aroma with hints of caramel, sweetness and maltness. Sweet flavour of chocolate and malt very clean and ends up little alcoholic.

EithCubes (5186) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle. Opaque ruby-rosewood pour with a short yellow-tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, grape, malty, and a touch of alcohol. Typical bock taste with a little more dark malt than expected. Full-bodied and velvety smooth; not really creamy or oily, but slightly warming. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Fruity (grape, mostly) aftertaste. Really pleasant and mild - I’d say this is a very refined Doppelbock which seduces you with subtle flavor rather than slamming you with it.
