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 a ruby brownish with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty with a faint woody note. Flavor is crisp and sweet, with a nice bitter finish. A little simple, but it is German what else can you do with water malted barley and yeast.

Inviting dark brown pour with nice tan, if somewhat limited, head. Strong aroma of sweet malts - ripe plums, raisins - and grain. The flavor is largely on the sweet side though there is some hop bitterness in the finish. The sweet malts taste of toffee and brown sugar. Medium body. Solid and drinkable doppel.

Pouring a dense dark brown, the big malty aroma first strikes the senses, followed by the dry, dark malt flavors of this medium-bodied brew. A berry-like character is present as is a hint of chocolate. Very drinkable.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear, dark orange lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is doughy and fruity. It smells of whole-grain bread, honey and a Red Eye made with lots of tomato juice and just about any premium, pale lager. For whatever reason, this totally works for me. The malty, breadsy flavor is full of dough and golden raisins. Full-bodied and silky with mild carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet, but mostly dry. World class effort!

Never disappointment from Weihenstephaner.. this one is a good example of what a dopplebock should be. I’m not the biggest fan of the style, especially the aroma, but this particular one had a pleasing smell. Its a deep clear red which looks very nice held up to the light, weak head but very powerful aroma. The flavor is very roasted chocolate like, which is good but better if I were in the mood for it. The roasted malt could be maybe a tad less aggressive, but other than that I really love it.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 This dopplebock is probably has most well rounded flavor I have ever had. The first time I had it I was literally amazed by the taste, it is in fact a religious experience just to be able to buy this brew. Nice and heavy, It is sweet to the palate, and such a flavorful chocolate malty aftertaste. I instantly added this to my favorite all time wall of fame. outstanding, period.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 [bottle] Sweet, almost fruity aroma. Flavor is kind of sweet as well. Nutty malts. Very sweet aftertaste.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Pours a dark brownish mahogany color w/ a tall, relentless, creamy froth that sits there forever. Reduces to a full canopy of thick lace. Intense aromas of honey, dark fruits, roasted coffee bean and cocoa. Nice! Medium nectar w/ very mellow effers that create a nice creamy texture. Flavors are fresh and complex in nature w/ a very defined overlying roasted honey character. Molases, honey, plum, red apple, raisins, cocoa, roasted coffee bean, spiced cakebread, and slightly earthy. Wow! This brew rocks. The creamy texture really sets this one apart from the usual suspects. The finish has a perfect bittering component consting of chocolate roasted coffee beans and a lasting presence of stewed dark fruits and buttery cocoa. Goes good w/ spicey chili con carne. Highly recommended.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2006
(bottle) Clear and dark mahogany colour with a medium sized beige foamy head. Moderately sweet aroma of dark and roasted malts, caramel, toffee and cacao, also shy hints of hops. Sweet flavour, medium to full body, smooth carbonation. Sweet roast-malty taste with caramel and dark chocolate, sweet malty and warming finish with a shy but present bitterness. Not too complex and quite sweet, but really quaffable.
