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.

I was surprised by this cheap bottle!! Dark brown with a sweet nose of thick malts and a little hint of the alcohol. Very smooth and sweet without going overly nasty with sweetness. Thick and malty, with more alcoholic notes as it warms up. Veery nice, I'll remember this one next Winter!

An excellent Doppelbock. This is right up there with Ayinger's Celebrator Doppelbock.

Nice "Dark Strong Beer" from the "Oldest Brewery in the World." Great smell, good head, wonderful, germanic finish. Not the best double bock I've had, but in the top ten.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2003 Nice huge head that rises above the rim of the glass; deep rich brown color; malty smell, almost like molasses; smooth texture; pleasantly bitter finish.

Light roasted and vegetable aroma but not annoying. Dark brown color, light brown head, fair lace. Light roasted, light sweet, dark caramel flavor. Short finish. Very nice dunkles starkbier but a doppelbock???

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Pours a deep, reddish-brown, with an ample, creamy head. Mild, spicy hop aroma, plenty of mellow roasted malt and some root or bark accents. Buttery, sweet flavor, smoothly carbonated. Finish is OK, clean but, undistinguished. Overall, a nice, easy drinking beer.

bierkoning (10204) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2003
Deep dark ruby brown color. Malty and fruity aroma. Medium to full bodied, malty and fruity flavor (pear and banana). Some roasted malt and coffee. Just a hint of metal in the aftertaste.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Beautiful Mahogany color with a huge off-white head. The aroma was sweet...clove...bananas...caramel...malty sweetness...tobacco. The flavor was similar to the aroma with a little alcohol added. Extremely enjoyable doppelbock.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2003
This one pours a very dark amber color with a medium sized, off-white head that lingers. It also has particles of yeast floating throughout the beer. The aroma is weak and I detect only a bit of malt presence. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with some hop presence in the finish and a nice lingering malty sweetness. This one gets better and better as I drink it. Good, strong maltiness, perfect carbonation, and a slight hop presence make this a good doppelbock.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
This one was nice, but not what I had hoped for. A very nice dark coloration, but the aroma is lacking. Flavor is nice and full, but lacking in real character. Overall, good, but not great.
