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.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle purchased at Pizza Port bottle shop. This dunkles appeared and gave off the same impression a glass of soda pop would have because of the light tinted brown and fizzy film of head. In the aroma, a mild dose of caramel malt and chocolate notes can be found. I would say the flavor is the same as the description I mentioned about the aroma, but it will become more diluted and thin. Still a sweet and soft dunkles to be had, although, I won’t be picking this up again.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2007
1pt 0.9oz bottle. Aroma is of sweet malts and yeasts. Notes of bread, caramel, wood, and malt. Large tan foamy head that left good lacing and mostly diminished. Dark brown/ruby hue but clear. Flavor is mild but sweet and spicy with a medium finish. Palate is chewy and medium bodied. Watery and soft. A good woody, earthy, bready brew that really hit the spot. Worth a try.

Eructoblaster (3757) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle - 500mml. Pours a hazy terracotta brown body with average carbonation and a nice beige frothy head. Complex malty/hoppy aroma with herbal, toffee, fruity and spicy hints. Its taste is well balanced and is less punchy than I was expecting. It carries plum/raisin and brown sugar notes, and ends with a sweet and relatively mild finish. Very enjoyable.

Skinnyviking (8630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle. High light brown creamy and lasting head. Clear and beautiful ruby body. Sweet caramel cocoa aroma. Feels very good in the mouth, round and smooth. Flavor of sweet caramel cocoa and nuts with a bit of hops bitterness but not much carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste. Pleasant surprise.

Bottle @ Beer Circus, Croydon. Pours deep brown small beige head. Smells of caramel / malt. Taste is smooth, sweet with hints of caramel / fruits, possibly pear / apple. A good beer.

BigBeer45 (1414) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2007
500ml Bottle: pours very dark that is a clear dark ruby when held up to a light, off-white head, some effervesence in this brew, aroma of dark bread, bread crust and malt sweetness, wine, chocolate and faint alcohol of bourbon(?), rich dark malt flavors with dark bread mixed with malt sweetness, faint berry-fruit flavors, some licorice hanging around in the background, faint alcohol warmth on the tongue, little hops on the palate, nice full mouth feel, some sweetness in the finish but the finish is medium dry.

coldbrewky (1673) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle: Pours a dark Ruby brown. A thin tan head tings the glass. Sweet nutty nose states to drinker...I am a big full bodies german beer... Toasted notes are surounded by sweet candi sugar, toffee and instant memories of Willies’s Smokehouse in Harrisville, PA. Man...they have the best smoked cheese. Legs are loose and short lived. This beer is not in a hurry to impress. It is full bodied and well balanced and unpresumpstuous (-5 for spelling) The finish is just as impressive as the body and nose. A nice surprise at the rip and run.

Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2007
bottle. amber with disipating white head. Sweet, rotting aroma. Nice flavor of spice, caramel, cloves. Good mouthfeel and finish, niecely balanced. As advertised, I can imagine it with smoked meat/roasts. Very good.
