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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2003
Dry, musty aroma of caramel, dark chocolate, and a touch of nuttiness. Medium to dark brown colored with a small ring of foam. Good, well-rounded flavor of roasted nuts and chewy malt. Lot's of malt in this one, which makes me a fan. If it were a tad thicker, darker, and sweeter, then it would rival Celebrator.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 1, 2003
A malty behemoth of a brew. Worth the years-long wait. Just a shade beneath the mighty Celebrator for dopplebock supremacy, but man this is a fine beer by any standards.

jaymobrown (1649) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Dark oak color. With thin white head that quickly fades. Big malt nose, with a type of syrup sweetness. Some soft notes of hops found in the end. Not really thick, but not watery by any means. Sort of tastes like plums, raisins, and caramel mixed together. An interesting mix of flavors.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2003
Brown body with healthy tan head. Medium sweet aroma, some dark fruit (raisin), smidgen of caramel. Taste is sweet, grape, malty, and somewhat cloying.

delacerveza (157) - Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2003
there's that tinny metallic thing again. aroma AND flavor had a tinge of tinny. i LOVE their dunkle hefe and their regular hefe, but this was a bit of a disappointment. comparable to (albeit much better than) a dark lager like st pauli or becks.

Almost no aroma. Dark brown hue. Nice head. Very slightly bitter.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Not much to mention as far as aroma goes, not a bad aroma just not a noticeable one. Dark brown appearance. Malty flavor with hint of roasted grains and very slight hop prescence. Medium on the palate with nice carbonation. Very drinkable beer.

madsberg (10141) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2003
Dark red/brown coloured. Chocolatish head with medium lasting. Aroma is sweet, fruity and malty. Flavour is malty and has fruitnotes and is medium spiced. Flavours is not as distinct as I had hoped for. There is some alcahol burn in the aftertaste. Not the most complex dobbelbock, but still a good beer.

Tried for the first time the other night and i had no idea what it was when i ordered it. Smoky and burnt flavor, intermixed with sweet malt. Quite excellent. Very appealing except the large amount of debris at the bottom of the bottle, which left me puzzled. Oh well, still good.
