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.

Dark brown ruby color, with some reddish highlights, with a frothy tan-colored head, sweet caramelized malt, toffeeish nose, toasted malt, with a dried figs fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a full-bodied palate with a sweet caramelized malt character, with some dark dried fruits fruitiness notes, hint of dark chocolate and treacle accent, with a toffeeish and faint coffeeish textures, leading towards a sweet warming malty, fruity and raisiny finish.

Nice brown color. Not my favorite style of beer but not bad. Malty with carmel syrup taste but somehow not sweet. Does go good with salmon. Dark but not overpowering.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Ruddy brown pour with a dark red hue around the edges of the glass. Thick head that is very similiar in appearance to a latte or cappucino. Awesome aroma of candied pecans like the ones my mom makes around Christmas. Medium body and an unfortunately thin watery palate. Flavor is like an overly malty nut borwn ale with a bitter and smoky finish that lasts for a while. If this were fuller bodied it would be hard to beat.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Clear dark brown port under a collapsing medium light brown frothy head. Aromas pf dark caramel, smoky malt, some earthy notes, and a touch of floral hops. Medium/full bod, and a little sticky and resinous. Huge malt flavors of sweet caramel, roasted nuts, and molasses. Still, there is a nice balancing bitterness, although it still finishes a little sweet. A very good doppelback in the classic Bavarian style. It’s no Celebrator, but certainly holds its own.

16.9oz - Aroma is toasty malts, carmel and toffee with a touch of hops. Pours dark brow with medium head and good lacing. Flavor is sweet and toasty carmel, toffee, and a little nutty. Palate is sticky and sweet. Nice.

Pours a medium brown color. Flavor is wonderful. It is malty and has a creamy finish. Aroma is also malty. This is a great brew and one of my favorites.

Zeswaft (1437) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2006
I only had this about 4 hours ago and I’m finding it hard to remember anything significant about it. Looks like dirty water. Has a nutty and sweet aroma. Flavor kind of reminds me of a Rochefort for some reason, nutty and dirt like. Not chocolatey like a lot of dopplebocks. So-so.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Greasy red lager-snot. Head is sticky for a while then dies leaving only a thin layer. Citrus and raisin in the nose. The atack is clean but not too sharp nothing short of subtle pungency. If there is a flawI can;t find it. Clean doppelbock. Walnuts and a little bit of molasses. In the mouth it rides low...if you know what I mean. the sweetness in the center of your tongue is countered by the bitterness at the sides and back of your tongue from the same substance. Alcohol is only apparent as it sits in place on the tongue. Lots of fresh black cherries. Apricot finish that is neither subtle nor wantonly dry. Excellent . Notice also some history. Corbinian was one of the first evangelists to Bavaria. he started a school and monastery on a hill where a pagan shrine was in Freising. The bear on the label alludes to a story that Corbinian’s horse was killed by a bear and then Corbinian forced the bear to carry the load the horse was carrying. Good beer!

Appearance: Deep dark brown with a wonderful tan head Aroma: First whiff I get malts with the next one it is slightly fruity and some spices Flavor: WOW! I get Caramel, raisins, spices, some chocolate all of which is beautifully balanced with the right amount of bitterness... the alcohol is slightly warming but WOW! Palate: Medium bodied, malty complexity which is not cloying since the dryness keeps everything in check Overall: Definitely worth seeking out... for the oldest brewery the magic is still there
