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.

Very dark amber and slightly hazy. Nice head, but it quickly pops away. Cakey-yeasty nose. Soft and very creamy texture -- nice! Malts were fairly sweet, a little roasty, woodsy, damp and earthy. Hops were a little fruity (dried apricots), herbal, and grassy, with a healthy amount of bitterness that easily kept up with the big malts. Good beer.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2004
A brown beer with a beutiful brown head. The aroma is lovely malty with a slight sweetness. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of dry wood and roasted bread. A lovely beer.

Frank (3026) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Dark, clear garnet. Big foamy head--very little lace. Malty nose. Somewhat sharp carbonation. Medium bodied with loads of dark malt flavor. Very lightly sour. Finishes clean with some lingering molasses/brown sugar sweetness.

sweet, nutty & caramel smells-- with a tinge o' alcohol. sweet, smooth, roasty... a nice finish. roasted plums, caramel. a bit of iron in the finish, but not enough to be annoying. not very bubbly. i really do like this beer.

Sweet smell. Nice, deep red/brown color. Malty flavor with some plum, raisin, prune taste to it. Very easy to drink. Tasty Doppelbock.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Draft. Aroma is all malt - toffee, dark dried fruit, and hints of coffee. Dark red-brown in color, OK head. Flavor matches the aroma, on the sweet side. Full-bodied and smooth. Very good.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Oddly refreshing for a doppelback. Tastes classically German, malty and roasty. One of the better doppels that I have tried.

becksgenius (110) - Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Starts lightly and finishes strong. a lot of the flavor is on the back end. ginger, chocolate, and roasted malt are the primary elements. definately a good one to enjoy on a cold night by the fire.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Huge lasting head, glossy molasses-colored body. Very sweet malty-earthy nose, rasins & caramel & ginger & chocolate. Bit too simple in the flavor department, but I love a very sweet, full-bodies doppel with lots of chocolate at the end and a big finish. Lovely, great for a Wisconsin winter.

Dark reddish brown body with a tan head that disappeared too quickly. Could not distinguish the aroma except to say that it was sweet. Full to the mouth with some caramel notes. A delicious beer.
