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.

Pours clear brown with red hues, with medium, lasting light brown head. Nice nutty malt aroma with some chocolate and molasses notes. Medium mouthfeel, not as smooth as expected though, a little watery on the finish. Nice sweet malt start with a balanced mid and finish. Lingering roast flavour. Nice stuff

Reddish brown, lush, perfect head that never fades away. Aroma of bread. Flavors of pumpernickel, a touch of toffee, surprisingly dry finish. Never would have picked this for a doppelbock, as I actually enjoyed the beer.

A big malt treacley nose hits when you first open the bottle subsiding to a mild fruitiness. Colour is a royal dark bourbon red with a medium small medium lasting tan head. Body is medium fullnes, lowish carbed, clean and non-coying. Flavour is primarily medium low sweetness caramel malt with touch of lingering fruitiness. Mild sweet and dry roasted malt reasonably clean aftertaste. Alcohol very well masked.

Bottle: Apparently I’m the only one who thinks this, but the aroma seems to a combination of salt and grass. Smells almost like a soup but I can’t think of what kind (it’s on the tip of my tongue). Very strange. Pours a dark transparent reddish-brown with a tan head that dies rather quickly. Decent lacing. Very malty taste. Very, very slight bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat malty aftertaste.

Dark chestnut color. Aroma of unmalted cereals and malt. Good body strength, good caramel flavor, but the final is a bit stale. In the final there is basically dark caramel.

Beautiful amber color. Light aroma (malt, caramel)… more interesting flavor, with a good malty structure and a balanced, long final.

Cola like coloured body with a large lasting tan coloured head. Aroma is most certainly malt, caramel and slightly roasted. Taste follows the malt aroma with more malt again, a touch of sweetness, alcohol is hidden and a creamy oily texture. Cheers!

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Fruit jam gelling with caramel, cooking luxurious malt cookies... A silky mouthfeel and perfectly leveled residual sugars force the eyelids to slowly close every other sip... Earthy connotations add depth in the finish for a most elegant Doppelbock...

Clean amber body with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is strong and sweet with big bursts of malt. This is a very malty beer, smells like a can of malt extract. Flavor is massive, full of malt and alcohol. Sweet almost cherry flavors in the highly alcoholic finish. This is one prize of a beer. Overall, this is an awesome beer. It should be slowly enjoyed from a snifter. Bottles are the perfect size too. Outstanding!!!

Deep amber color with a beige head. The taste is strong malts with some sweetness and slight alcohol in the finish.

I would probably rate this one second only to the Celebrator amongst the doppels I’ve sampled. For fans of smooth, malty beers, don’t miss this one. Creamy, with a sweet (but not overly so) carmel-like flavor. Pours a deep brown hue, with a foamy head and good retention. Almost perfect mouthfeel. Another great beer from a great brewery.
