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.

illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2007
500 ml, lot 4187. Great pour, nice darker tan head. Dark brown with rubyish tint in the glass. Lots of malt up front, hints of chocolate, toffee, molasses, raisins, wood - maybe oak? Very mellow, almost non-existent carbonation. Good mouthfeel, nice finish. Hides the alcohol (7.4%) extremely well. Good beer.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Chestnut brown colour. Rich malt aroma - toffee, some light earth and brown sugar. Soft body. Pleasant molassesy note. Genteel, understated elegance.

Becker (14) - Bayern, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2007
This one was nice, but not what I had hoped for. A very nice dark coloration, but the aroma is lacking. Flavor is nice and full, but lacking in real character. Overall, good, but not great.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Deep dark brown, nice color. Smells like malted grain, a little on the syrupy side, some cake elements. Big creamy mouthfeel with clean but thick finish. Good balance of flavors with the residual sugars balanced by hop in the end, never cloying or too sweet even though there are hints of chocolate liqueur.

nearbeer (4874) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2007
500 ml, lot #9137. Beautiful mahogany with ruby tint. Huge creamy head that settles in and leaves some frosting. Big molasses and dates on the nose; slight cocoa and alcohol aromas. Sweet molasses-cocoa front is toned down nicely by an earthy, woodsy dryness that turns the taste to dark fruit, oak, and bitterish green herbs for the finish. Medium body is fairly smooth and finishes dry and slightly astringent.

Derek881 (1250) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Pours from the bottle a dark brown color with a ruby red tint, but somewhat opaque. A big, foamy and creamy tan head that had great retention. A mostly sweet aroma with some good fruit notes, including raisins and maybe prunes, maybe somewhat nutty. The taste is sweet at the onset with a mildly bitter finish, and more fruit notes. Palate is largely creamy, without a lot of carbonation, only subtle fizzyness. I liked this beer a good bit, wasn’t really sure what to expect and was pleased.

Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Pours a brown/copper color. Hints of sweet malt, slight molasses, and nuts. Taste is sweet with slight smoke and dry, nutty finish. I was surprised by this brewer. I’ve never had a beer from them. I purchased a gift pack that has five of their bees in it. I am looking forward to the othes. Petty good.

portermax55 (118) - Canterbury, Connecticut, USA - NOV 30, 2007
16.9oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark copper with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy aromas of roasted malts, molasses, and some hints of campfire smoke. Flavor is of malts, some spice, and caramel with a sweet, nutty finish. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and the 7.4% is hidden very well. Great brew.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Smells like...dark German beer. Appearance is dark brown - almost black. The flavour is of a complex palate. The palate has definite notes of malt, with a sweetishness of caramel & chocolate. Overall, good. May be better served a bit colder.
