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.

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 (5773) - 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.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 Very dark transparant red with a large fluffy head. Malty aroma of maple syrup, caramel, dark fruit, bubblegum and licorice. Strong & complex taste of maple syrup, some saltiness (soy sauce), spices, roastiness, and sweet caramel. Great complexity in the malt profile. Slight yeastiness showed up but the hops were far away in the background and barely noticable. Very long malty sweet & salt finish. Soft mouthfeel, velvety but not without carbonation. Quite different from the more traditional doppelbocks but very good.

andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2007
500ml bottle. pours deep brown w/slight ruby tint. the head seems a bit watery, with little retention. aromas aren’t too potent, but a good mix of anisette, slight cinnamon (mirrored in taste), sugar, and mineral-esque. the roasted malts really peak mid-palate, and there are raisin and dried apricot undertones. the finish is ever so slightly similar to a sour ale. more herbs are apparent on the back palate. good beer, different, but one i’d probably buy (again)

ekstedt (6492) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle 50 cl (thanks rickgordon). Clear dark reddish brown, beige head. Roasted malt aroma, along with dried fruits. Full bodied and smooth. Well balanced with an initial mild sweetness, and a dry and moderately bitter finish.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2007
Bottled. Dark red-amber colour. Heavy malt nose, with chocolate. Chocolatey backbone in flavour and good malty. Full-bodied and well balanced, but not very complex.
