Our Korbinian, the full-bodied, dark Doppelbock with light brown foam, wins beer-lovers over with a balance of fruity hints of plums and figs, a dark malt aroma - reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Its roasted flavour goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as venison and poultry. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

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)

Ron (3616) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 18, 2007
One bottle from BOTW. Poured a large slightly tan head. Deep brown color with a sweet toasted malt aroma. Flavor the same. A nice thick chewy bock. It’s great that there is no hops bite in this. Just goodness. Enjoyable

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2007
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark brown/ruby colour with firm beige head. Malty nose with dried fruit, ryvita, dark rye bread, slightly spicy and roasted notes, ending with hints of burnt sugar. Malty taste with notes of dark rye bread, ryvita, chocolate, coffee and wild berries. Some sweetness throughout but actually drier than expected. Full bodied, rounded and smooth mouthfeel. Absolutely brilliant balance. In short, an awesome and beautiful brew.

obguthr (5718) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2007
Cloudy brown with light head and no lacing. Strong aroma of maple syrup. Balanced sweet syrup and hop taste finishing with roasted oak. Not heavy at all, but deceptive alcohol content.
