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.

Ratman197 (11356) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2006
500ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a diminishing brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, raisins, a hint of smoke and a bit of molasses. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark fruit, roasty malt, some molasses and a hint of smoke with a lingering bittersweet finish.

Lot 5484. Poured a burgundy brown color with a generous head that lasted quite nicely and provided good lacing. This one had a vinous and dark fruit type chocolate aroma. The flavor was similar with figs, caramel, and raisins featured over top of some chocolate and licorice that came out in the later flavors. A little bit of the maibock doughiness in there. The finish contained some hops, slightly grassy after aftertaste. Mouthfeel was moderate for a bock, but a little light to average for a doppelbock. An enjoyable 800th review.

vyvvy (4730) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours dark brown with a reddish tint - rich tan pillowy frothy head. Aroma has rich chocolate and cocoa malt (as in a malt shake) - very rich aroma. Medium think mouthfeel with just a little soft carbonation. Taste starts off rich and has roasted chocolate malt - hints of toffee and cream are mixed in there. The finish has spiciness and hoppiness - odd finish for a dopplebock. Overall a truly great beer.

demitriustown (1138) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Pours a clear brownish red with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is wonderful malty, caramel, a slight smoked aroma, light chocolate notes, hops, and dark fruit. Taste is a distinct mouth filling maltiness, caramel, chocolate, still a little bit of smoke, lovely combination of flavors. Palate is lightly bitter and a light malt texture. This is the first time I saw this in the store and I’d have to say I’m pleasantly surprise. A very nice doppelbock, definitely recommended.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark deep brown with a thick tan head. Sweet nose with caramel and toffee. The flavor is intense. One of the sweeted dopplebocks I have tried, it is nonetheless very well put together. Sweet malts with a clean smoky finish. An excellent dopplebock!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Dark brown-mahogany body with a big, foamy beige head. Interesting warm caramel, roasted marshmallow, and dark bread crust aromas. Chocolate, caramel, and mild dark fruit flavors with medium high malty sweetness. Initial fizziness subsides and leaves a smooth, creamy texture. A good, tasty doppelbock from a proven brewery.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours dark clear mahogany with a medium, creamy beige head. Smoke, peat, candy-like sweetness and a hint of grass in the nose. Very bold and malty with notes of caramel, dark cherry, plum, raisin, sweet toffee, peat, brown sugar, molasses and a hint of chocolate. Pleasantly sweet with just enough hops for balance. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Decent head retention. Overall, great beer.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 Poured a deep copper brown with a beige head that left a little lace, and some syrupy legs. Sweet aroma with, some black bean sauce, toffee, sweet dried fruit and a bit of alcohol. Some saltiness on tasting accentuates the sauce character, and the sweetness enriches it. Quite a good beer - very tasty. Second time around this seems to be less cloying and more palatable, but I guess that happens depending on when you drink it. I think I still prefer Salvator though.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle. Quite sticky and sweet on the palate, too much so. Soy sauce and sweet caramel/toffee characters and not a lot else. Admittedly this is not my favourite style, but i have been pleasantly surprised in the past (Andechser!!). Somehow i was expecting more, from a brewery i really like.

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.
