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.

3fourths (9015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2007
500ml bottle. Doughy tan head on top of a murky dark brown body. Buttered waffles, maple and toast on the nose, with a decent burnt bread crust and light cream and smoke scent. Creamy and silky up front, sweet over the middle, smooth in the finish. Flavor is creamy smoke and pastry, light butter or diacetyl note, but really it focuses on a large dose of creamy smoke.

Grovlam (4203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished. Absolutely no lacing. Clear flat looking body with a dark mahogany color. Aroma was delicious sweet rye bread, caramel, vanilla, yeast, burned, cinnamon, spices. Medium to full bodied with a flat carbonation. Excellent sweet flavor with some burned bitterness to balance it. Light burned and slightly alcoholic finish. Really good Doppelbock!

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours black with red highlights and a small off white head. Aroma is strong and interesting though not too appealing to me. It smells like mud. Taste is malty, smooth, a bit fruity and bitter. This was all right but nothing really special.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 19, 2007
16.9oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear ruby with a one finger fading beige head. Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, grain, nuts, and buttery toffee--smells fairly sweet. Flavor has the addition of a bit of milk chocolate, as well as all of the aforementioned aromas into a dry finish. There was also a hint of salted hazelnuts. Bitterness was minimal, no alcohol detected. Medium to full body with light to moderate carbonation--pretty smooth. Very good beer, and one of the better doppelbocks I’ve had lately.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Dusty, woody and slightly metallic malty aroma; deeply chocolaty with strong coffee notes, a little grapey; sweet with a little dark roast bitterness, enough to keep it from being cloying; creamy body; almost roasty, lingering, but smooth, finish.

DerBiermann (18) - Sofia, BULGARIA - MAR 16, 2007
Weihenstephan is a synonym of beer quality: there is a famous institute for brewing. the bavarian experts make this very dark and strong malty beer.

gwpom (297) - Akron, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Dark cloudy amber with a night tight head, this beer has a taste that jogs my memory to something I can’t place. Nice full flavor, roasty and fruity and not over alcoholly. Got this on recommendation from beerlord, who is a bock fiend. I need to try more of these.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2007
Very dark ruby red beer with a dark amber big-bubbled head. Diacetyl, toffee, buttertoffees, and a bit of fresh greenery, molasses. And raw grain. Not very sweet, lots of roastiness, burnt parts of the roast. Ends dry, even just off-woody. Even not too sweet, it’s sticky on the lips. Medium to well-bodied. Nice Doppelbock, no doubt.
