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 to a dark garnet body with a lasting large creamy tan head. The aroma is a malty raisin bread and light cookie dough. The flavor is malty with brown sugar, strange malted grain profile, light bubblegum, lots of yeasts, mild green raisins, light woodsyness like Anchor OSA. Flat feeling dry palate. Leaves my mouth watering. Nothing really going on here to excite.

Suttree (5882) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Murky brown, thin tan head. Fruity (plum and raisin) aroma, with a dark bread note. Maybe a hint of rum, too. Flavor is pumpernickle bread and a hint of raisin, with some rye, too. A bit of alcohol heat in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Drank with stegosaurus. Poured a dark brown with decent head at first but dissapated quickly(retention was still good) Fruity aroma possibly some banana. Carmel malt flavor but taste fell a little thin for my likings but still a good brew.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 6, 2006
16.9 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with ruby highlights. Thick tan colored head faded quickly. Aromas are of roasted Carafa malts, toffee, and yeasty bread. Flavors are of brown sugar, sweet caramel malts, slight bready flavors. Rich mouthfeel, decent body. Finished slightly sweet & roasty.

Pours out a fairly dark brown. It has a thin but pleasing head. This has a lot in common with many of the other dopplebocks I have had. It’s got caramel and malt in the nose and taste. It has a solid roasty prescence. It is suprisingly drinkable for a dopplebock, but seems to lack some of the complexity that this style usually offers. This would be a great pub beer for sure. Weihenstephaner seems to be more concerned with drinkability and smoothness with their other beers, and this one seems to have the same focus. The alcohol is hidden very well and the flavors in the brew make sure to not overpower your palate. A solid effort.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Tap at Toronado. Malt, malt and more malt. Pours very dark with an off white head. Atromas of malts, caramel and raisins. The flavors are pure malt with a hint of caramel. This is probably the best malty beer I have ever tasted. One could say is somewhat one-dimensional in that way but nonetheless there are nuances. The sweetness comes out later, initially there is more of a roasted flavor to it. Very thick and satisfying mouthfeel.Very enjoyable beer.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2006
(07.03.06) One pint, 0.9 oz brown bottle purchased from Bierkraft, Brooklyn, NYC. 7.4% ABV. Lot 5484. Poured clear brown with small off-white head. Malty caramel aroma. Full-bodied dunkles that starts with moderate malt sweetness and dried fruit (prune)/ caramel/toasted malt flavors. Finished with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. Rich, smooth, and flavorful, this is an excellent malty beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Aroma is a majestic roasted malt, with bitter, woody notes, clear garnet, pours a small tan head. Flavour is of big, bold almonds, brazil nuts, deep roasted malts and some lovely caramel. Full bodied, perfectly balanced, alcohol isn’t noticed. Fantastic, a titan of a beer!! Thank You mds!

Bottle. Rich mahogany-brown body with a medium off-white head. Great rich aroma of caramel, smooth chocolate, rye bread, cookies, and butterscotch. Killer flavour with a superb palate. Cookies, chocolate, caramel, warm alcohol - very well blaanced and not over the top in any way.

Deep, dark brown pour, wonderful sweet aroma. Very smooth to drink, although slightly sweeter than I typically prefer.
