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.

Pours a dark brown. Yeasty aroma with hints of sweet malt and banana? Flavor is similar to the aroma with a little banana in the aftertaste.

ooh, very nice. deep mahogony color with gold accents, great sweet aroma, wonderful balance....it’s easy to make a dopplebock too sweet, but this one’s expertly balanced. what else would you expect from the Weihenstephan? Excellent beer.

Purchased in a 500 ml brown bottle without a freshness date, Korbinian poured out darker than anticipated chestnut red, and had a bouquet of roasted nuts, dried cherries, and grassy noble hops. The taste was mellow and roasty with the malts dominant, just as they should have been. Dark skinned sweet fruits rolled around on the tongue, and were backed by a smoky, woody, and herbal hop bitterness. Alcohol was warm, but was hidden well enough to not be detracting from drinkability. Aftertaste was full and long drawn out. A satisfyingly meaty German import suited well to usher in the first day of spring.

Rich ruby brown body with a frothy tan head. Loved the sweet cinnamon raisin bread aromas and caramel malt flavours. Notes of chocolate now and then but mostly brown sugar and malt. A little thin perhaps but a nice lingering finish. Solid.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2005
16.9 oz bottle, goblet. Large beige head is rocky and mostly lasting. The beer itself is a deep cola/molasses color. Malt overload in the aroma...figs, caramel, chocolate, and that distinct, somewhat musty doppelbock zing. Simple aroma, but promising of a very sweet beer. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter/acidic finish. Flavor is just as simple to me as the aroma was. Still, simply can be tasty! Medium-heavy body, slick & creamy, lively carbonation. Nothing cloying here to me. The bottom line is: there’s a tinge of acidity hiding behind the carbonation and there’s more figs and less chocolate than I want...but, I love this style and this is a better than average offering.

Pours dark brown but clear. Lots of fine carbonation bubbles keep the head afloat. Aroma is quite raw. I can actually smell the roasted grain, this is a good thing. Flavor is dry, and of burnt coffee. A bit acidic as well. Ehh.

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Large. light brown head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Quite creamy on top. Great head retention and reformation. Roasty aroma with a bit of milk and soy. Nice dark port brown in color. Malty and roasty flavor. Little bit of bitterness. Little bit of fruit. Alcohol is minimal in the taste but you do feel a nice warming in the stomach. Body is a little thinner than expected. Finish is roasty and a little creamy but still finishes pretty clean. A pretty good dopplebock.

Poures dark mahogany brown with minimal head. Aroma is standard doppel,some caramel and sweet malt. Flavor was the same with some toffee and fruit present. Decent overall.
