3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Number 400! Pours a deep browned red. Nice tall tan puffy head. Nose is sweetened with malt. There's something else hiding in the nose, maybe caramel or toffee and almost a sour-ish hint. Hard for me to pick out. The taste is good. Sweet malt with a chocolate and oatmeal cookie mix. Smooth as silk finish Will look towards having this with my yearly Oktoberfest gathering.

Just tried this beer last night, Wow, I just loved it. Slightly sweet, maybe chocolate or toffee. I will need to more to be more desriptive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sugary caramel malt aroma, some brief hints of raisin, date and perhaps licorice, along with a faint yeasty banana component. Deep reddish brown color and a slight head, fed by very tiny bubbles. Flavor is decidedly malty and sweet, plenty of maple sugar, caramel and toffee, with a bready, nutty and very gently hopped finish. Thick palate, bordering on syrupy, with a low level of effervescence. Shouldn't this be known as "Korbiniator" or something?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is cloudy brown with lots of floaties and a significant head that dwindles to a thin layer of film. Aroma is sweet with a huge malt profile. Full bodied with a creamy feeling mouthfeel. Flavor is super strong and malty with a definite alcohol presence. There's a ton of malt in this brew and not much else.

A very carbonated brew. MAlty aroma witha touch of alcohol. Body has a sweet maltiness with a taste of alcohol. Decent but nothing great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet malt aroma, dark dark amber in colour with a large brown head. Very malty and sweet, slight bite of alcohol in it, caramel and a bit of toffee with slight bitters that hang on the roof of your mouth. Thick in body decent none-the-less.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Deep brown beer with good active head, towering even. The aroma is strongly alcohol-sugared. Indeed, the flavor is rich and thick with cooked sugar, nuts, roasted malt. Even some raisin here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled: pours a dark beechnut with a full taupe head that diminishes quickly. Full malty aroma with plenty of hazelnuts, milk chocolate and banana. Fairly thick mouth feel that is clean and full of flavour. Luscious chocolate, a hint of campfire smoke, wood and a plethora of nuts. A hint of cascade hops evident in the finish, though not much. Overall a beer I would drink very often.

Decent dopplebock. I think this brew is suffering from comparison as I sampled Celebrator Dopplebock yesterday. On its merits though Korbinian smells of malty molasses. A bit one dimensional compared to others. Flavor is good, just doesn't have the complexity I was looking for in a dopple.
