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.

500mL bottle. A deep ruby pour with a big, extremely creamy tan head that leaves some good lacing. Subdued aroma is of creamy coffee, sweet malts, molasses and hints of banana esters. Medium-bodied and smooth. Sweet, creamy coffee and caramel body that has some roastiness to it. Some chocolate, molasses and bananas in there too. The finish has some creamy coffee bitterness. Nice label. I really like the religion-themed beer labels for some reason.

DYCSoccer17 (3490) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle. Nice aromatic, sweet, toffee-like raosted chocolate malty aroma. The are hints of metal in the aroma as well. Aroma is not as persistent as I’d like it to be. Transparent ruby-mahogany color with an off-white/light tan head. Mmmm...roasty bitter chocolate start with significant coffee flavors following. Middle is slightly sweet. This is just a great malt-bomb of a doppelbock. Awesome stuff.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle: Very dark rust-brown with a tick tan head and some sediment. Very expressive dried fruits and stewed quince aromas with some light roastyness, spicy toffee, and dark herbal notes. Thick, roasty flavours are underpinned by a lovely complex sweet spiciness. Strangely there is some saltniess here too. Underneath all this is a definite clove and nutmeg based spiciness and rich dried dark fruits. Very nice.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Bottle poured a deep mahogany with an initially large and highly quaffable tan head. Aroma is dark fruits and wood, slightly mineral, but awesomely malted. (A little chocolate in there too!) Flavor was really well-done with thick malt sweetness, a hint of salty bouillon, and a consistent, bittersweet finish that lingers. Borders on "full-bodied" with a syrupy yet dry texture. Very good.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Sugary sweet aroma is mostly plum and fig, but also hints at oak, sherry, rye bread and dark chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. The body is a wave of refreshing malt that layers toffee, brown sugar, nutty bread and bakers chocolate. Not overly sweet. Beautifully complex - and everything fits. Very solid Doppel.

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Simply fantastic. Complex roasted flavor with hints of chocolate and molasses and many other things I couldn’t put my finger on, with a nice full-bodied feel to it.

shrubber85 (8994) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle. Chocolate caramel, molasses, and malt aroma. Reddish brown color with decent head for a doppelbock. Sweet prune and German rye bread flavor. Moderate bitter finish but little astringency. Very smooth. Not the strongest flavored doppelbock but that’s what I really like about it. Very nice.

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Dark ruby appearance with a large off white head and light lacing. Roasted caramel and chocolate malt aroma accented with dark fruit. Very smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel. Complex, fruity taste with hints of molassas and black bread. One little harsh note at the very end of the finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10774) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours caramel nut brown with a small foamy/creamy light brown head and some light lined lacing. Yeast (barn, dough) and wheat lightly roasted malt (straw) aroma with hints of grape and German noble hops. Sweet malt caramel wheat and warming flavor with low acidity and well balanced malt hop combination that finishes a touch creamy with very little aftertaste. Medium to dark full bodied palate that is warming and somewhat carbonated, yet easy on the tongue.

Bottle. Dark red/brown with large tan head. Roasted, malty, bready aroma with caramel and some dark fruits. Very nice. Smooth, malty, chocolatey, sweet, with a nice spicey and bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good doppelbock.
