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.

07.01.05 500ml bottle. Strange that Iíd never heard of or seen this beer before today. Anyway, the pour is dark, beer-bottle brown with ample tan head and not much lacing. Aromas are less sweet than many doppels, caramel, brown sugar, peppery hints, dark pretzel. Flavors follow suit with some bananas foster appearing at the finish before a lightly charred note and salt/pepper grip takes hold of the aftertaste. Itís nicely done if not enchanting. Alcohol is not at all noticable, body is a medium-full, but should be meatier.

1.9 pt bottle. Fairly standard double bock beer. Not as sweet or thick as Celebrator or Paulanor yet very tasty without the cloyness as this type can be. Personally this seems more like an Aventinus, but that is just me.

Nearly black with a red tint. Has a great head that lasts till the bottom, great lacing all the way down too. Aroma dominated by malt notes such as toffee and caramel. Some slight dark fruits and something which resembles soy sauce on the nose too. The flavour is also dominated by dark malts and some fruits. There were only very slight hops notes in the finish but there was also some spice. Very rich and thick in the mouth. alcohol was detectable but pleasant.

Deep amber-rust brown colour. Moderate beige head. Delicious roasted malt nose with a little chocolate. Very balanced palate, not too sweet, making it enjoyable to the end. Could drink this all night! A terrific Fatherís Day gift and a fine beer to start my rating history!

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2005
This is one of my new favorite doppelbocks. Pours a deep mahogany and leaves a nice lasting beige head. Aroma is slightly fruity but dominated by malts. Lots of munich, toasted, and chocolate malts in both the aroma and taste. Flavor is accompanied by a hint of hops in the end to give it a slight bitterness. Not cloying at all. Very easy to drink and not too syrupy like some doppelbocks.
