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. color is a cloudy red brown with 1/2 inch or so of light tan head.Aroma is robust with sweet malts and and light vanilla notes. spicy hops also seem to be present in the background. Palate is rich and thick. sappy and oily without being syrupy. Sweet upfront with a decent finish but i’d like to see more hops to cut through the richness.

What a great dopplebock. True to style other than I couldn’t get the ‘strong malty aroma’. Very smooth for a big beer and enjoyed the complex taste. Not something to have ten of rather one to savour. Definitely a style I will try other examples of and one to try and brew.

500ml bottle. Darkish brown color. Aroma is quite malty, with a bit of nuttiness. Taste is very malty, with a sweet and caramel flavor to it as well. Very smooth beverage, but I did not find it very refreshing.

Pours a rusty brown with slight tan head that fades quickly leaving some nice lace along the glass. Aroma is very malty, with some caramel, light nutiness and some a light smell of a root cellar. Taste is caramel malt, some dough/bread, dusty grains, light fruitness and a touch of chocolate in the finish. Full bodied and very creamy. Pretty solid.

500ml. Bottle $2.99 Binny’s Orland Korbinian poured a caramel brown into my pilsner glass. Generous amount of small rising carbonation bubbles. A tan 2 finger head formed on the pour that, with some time, faded do a thick cap. Leaves small spotty lacing. Looks good. The smell starts with a a deep caramel sweetness. Along the way there’s some nuts, bananas, and some doughiness. Some raw grains show up as well as a mild vegetal aroma. Theres a mild metallic scent in there that doesn’t belong but it fades as the beer warms. Smells good. The metallic and vegetal aromas do detract a little from the smell though. The flavor is much like the smell without the funky vegetal flavor or metallic twang. More caramel and raw grains are the backbone and help to showcase the mild banana. The doughiness comes along mid-palate and everything ends up with some frothy milk chocolate and a touch of alcohol. Slightly acidic. Nice. The mouthfeel seems to be a little on the thin side. Medium bodied but the thinness that starts mid-palate doesnt quite fit. There is a frothiness on the swallow that is unique and pleasant. I could drink another one or two of these buts that’s probably all. It is an enjoyable beer that I will pick up again. Overall this is a solid doppelbock. There are some unique characteristics you don’t find in other doppelbocks, unfortuanately some of them don’t add to the quality. Not as hearty as some others but still a good all around beer. 2/15/07

Rated 10/20/06: Found at a new store down in the big city to the south. Brown pour, very brown mild head and not much lacing. Aroma is of bakery sweet rolls, rather malty and sugary. Filling mouthfeel, real smooth finish bites a little. Flavor is too sugary sweet for my liking, but this being a dopplebock it’s not a surprise. Bready with decent malt content it’s one and out for this brew.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Dark mahogany and a rather excessive and frothy head. Sweet and malty aroma with just a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is forcefully malty with some notes of sweetness... candy or caramel like. The finish is cloying and almost salty, but this is a good beer.

Deep red brown body with a small beige head; Very small caramel malty nose; Not soft enough body, big carbonation, a little sweet and bitter, very little character; Medium long malty bitter (not sweet enough) finish.

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2007
A really good beer, very malty aroma and flavor. Not very bitter. Kind of creamy mouthfeel. Tastes almost like a mild chocolatey dessert. A must have for fans of German bocks.

decaturstevo (5750) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2007
A slightly hazed medium brown pour. A smell almost like sweet hay that has been barn dried. Pours the malt at first that goes to an almost light sour aroma. An almost thick sweetness that reminds me a bit of dates or raisins. A very smooth even palate and mouthfeel. A tad on the frothy side but overall very good.
