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. Brown beer with a big beige head. Aroma of toffee and malt. Caramel and raisin flavors. Malt, fruit, some spice. Nice complexity, but easy to drink.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a clear dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma and flavors are malty, sugary, sweet, with some fig and raisin fruitiness. Bitter finish baloances out the sweetness.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2005
i’m really into doppelbocks, i like this style of beer. aroma of coffee, toffee, caramel and dark fruits. tastes like coffee, cola, rum, raisins and is heavy. mouthfeel is sticky because of the sweetness. finish is sweet, peppery and a bit sour. good one.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin yet persistent tan head. Sheets of lace. Smell is malty and fruity, light alcohol aroma. Big malt in the mouth. Caramel and peppery spice. Lots of alcohol in the flavor and some hops in the finish. Mouth is lightly sticky and the malty alcohol taste lingers. Not too drinkable and not too smooth. Not a great beer quite frankly.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 Dark mahogany, aroma of molasses and caramel. A tad more syrupey than I’d like, not as well balanced as my favorite bocks, namely the Celebrator and Aventinus. The aftertaste is more malty than the initial flavour, and it lingers well on the tongue. I plan to rerate this winter in the doppelbock showdown.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a medium brown body with a thick creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, bread, and dark fruits. Flavor of rich malt and caramel. Somewhat skicky mouthfeel.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2005
Dark brown with bright reddish tints, clear. Has a quick dissipating head with large bubbles, looks like cola. Aroma of dark raisin bread, very malty. Lighter body than other doppelbocks, lively carbonation keeps this from being overly sticky. Sweet, mild alcohol notes, butterscotch perhaps, lingering maltiness. Good for the style.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2005
Pours dark reddish-brown, with a moderate head, that dissipated somewhat quickly. Aroma is raisiny sweet. Flavor was also sweet, raisins again with molasses. There were some rum flavor undertones going on as well. There was a slight alcoholic flavor which probably contributed to me thinking of rum. Overall this was only OK.

legion242 (2162) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2005
Deep brown color; minimal head, but that was probably my fault. Nice nose. But altogether, not really that impressive for the style. Not as hardy or chewy as an Aventinus- the all time great in the category.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 11, 2005
Pinter. Poured a dark brown that reflected a slight amber hint with a milk chocolate head. Very little lacing. Aroma is a mild roasted feel. Taste is a bitter/sweet layer of molasses, brown sugar and some toffee with a raisin/prune base. The aftertaste is straight banana. Nothing more. Maybe I was trippin though. This was a good beer to sip on while watching Law and Order : Criminal Intent. It was so obvious though the chick did it.
