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: Aroma is fruity and vinous, some malts. Sweet. Color of ruby and mahoghany with a nice beige head. Tastes sweet, but with a husky malt presence. Wheat tones and a little dark fruit. Some alcohol can be detected, but not in a distracting manner. Thanks Buckdich.

Dark mahogany color, chestnut brown, nice thick head, tan head and decent lacing. Nose is rich with molasses and jaggery, nice plum and wheat esters. The flavor is balanced, notes of cocoa and hot chocolate, sweet dates and fig, cake, nice creamy finish. Savory or sweet, take your pick.

Sweet and bland. No hops and thin body. Mostly just a sweet taste---with little roasted malt flavor.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2007
Dark brown with a nice head. The aroma is malty and sweet, but not cloying. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, caramel and it has a sweet citrussy counter weight. It’s very charming, a bit heavy in it’s sweetness though... 2044

500ml, pours a dense brown with tan head. nose is very nutty covered in maple syrup. flavor is earthy, caramelly, brown sugar, toasted nuts, vanilla, sweet but not cloying and finishes pretty dry and sorta salty. carbonation and mouthfeel are ideal. i did enjoy this but i’m beginning to think americans are making better doppelbocks than the germans ever have.

16.9oz bottle poured in a Sam Adams specialty glass. Excellent! Korbinian pours beer bottle brown with a medium head. It smells like molasses. It has a great smooth silky taste and a warm, semi-sweet not-quite-chocolate finish. An excellent alternative to Celebrator Doppelbock.

Dark ruby red color, small steady beige head. Rye bread, roasted malty nose, very intensive aroma with hints of tar also. Sweetish brew, full-bodied, sticky mouthfeel, reasonably low carbonation. Licorice and fudge or some other candy in the flavor. After being in the sweeter side, long roasted aftertaste rides in. Alcohol is quite hidden but leaves warming feeling. Super and very complex dobbelbock. How about the barrel matured version of this?

bhensonb (13208) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet dark malt and something veg or herb. Very dark brown, but clear, color. A very frothy tan head. At least medium bodied, something herbal, and a lot of sweet, unroasted, dark malt. Arguably creamy. Carbonation is quite moderate. As the beer reduces, the glass displays a bit of lacing. I find nothing but dark sweetish malt, except for interesting flavor aspects. Maybe vanilla. Maybe not. The finish is not bitter, and after the malt melts away, the mouth is left with a light herbal impression.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2007
bottle. color is a cloudy red brown with 1/2 inch or so of light tan head.Aroma is robust with sweet malts and and light vanilla notes. spicy hops also seem to be present in the background. Palate is rich and thick. sappy and oily without being syrupy. Sweet upfront with a decent finish but i’d like to see more hops to cut through the richness.

What a great dopplebock. True to style other than I couldn’t get the ‘strong malty aroma’. Very smooth for a big beer and enjoyed the complex taste. Not something to have ten of rather one to savour. Definitely a style I will try other examples of and one to try and brew.
