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: JUL 12, 2008 500 ml bottle. Deep brown garnet tinted colour with a beautiful light brown head. Beautiful malty aroma, toast and lightly burnt sugar over a delicious cherry fruitiness. Toasted malt and a lightly spicy hoppiness. Flavour is very similar to the aroma with deep sweet decocted complexity. Toasted nuts, brown sugar, molasses and a soft herbal flavour.

sersdf (1018) - chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2006
gorgeous. mild opacity, nut brown toffee color. 1/2" head, dissipates nicely to a film. smells like a box of raisins. some beer smell too. pretty woody. a bit light bodied, and not terrifically malty. i’m actually very happy with this beer. it’s entirely dark fruit and apples and stuff without being super sweet or thick.

This is a well balanced beer, but lacks a little flavor. Would definitely drink this one again though.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Pours to a dark garnet body with a lasting large creamy tan head. The aroma is a malty raisin bread and light cookie dough. The flavor is malty with brown sugar, strange malted grain profile, light bubblegum, lots of yeasts, mild green raisins, light woodsyness like Anchor OSA. Flat feeling dry palate. Leaves my mouth watering. Nothing really going on here to excite.

Suttree (5541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Murky brown, thin tan head. Fruity (plum and raisin) aroma, with a dark bread note. Maybe a hint of rum, too. Flavor is pumpernickle bread and a hint of raisin, with some rye, too. A bit of alcohol heat in the finish.

MadIndian (2606) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Drank with stegosaurus. Poured a dark brown with decent head at first but dissapated quickly(retention was still good) Fruity aroma possibly some banana. Carmel malt flavor but taste fell a little thin for my likings but still a good brew.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 6, 2006
16.9 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with ruby highlights. Thick tan colored head faded quickly. Aromas are of roasted Carafa malts, toffee, and yeasty bread. Flavors are of brown sugar, sweet caramel malts, slight bready flavors. Rich mouthfeel, decent body. Finished slightly sweet & roasty.

Pours out a fairly dark brown. It has a thin but pleasing head. This has a lot in common with many of the other dopplebocks I have had. It’s got caramel and malt in the nose and taste. It has a solid roasty prescence. It is suprisingly drinkable for a dopplebock, but seems to lack some of the complexity that this style usually offers. This would be a great pub beer for sure. Weihenstephaner seems to be more concerned with drinkability and smoothness with their other beers, and this one seems to have the same focus. The alcohol is hidden very well and the flavors in the brew make sure to not overpower your palate. A solid effort.
