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.

Nice amber,brown color mild head that little staying power,Malty sweet aroma with a slight fruity side to it.The taste was all most more then i could handle,malty sweet with hints of caramel and mild fruit tones very smooth and a malty after taste that was fantastic.There was nothing in this brew to dislike and everything to like,i wish i had more then the one beer but i know where to get more and thats the main thing.The alcohol in this brew appears to be well hidden you don't really detect it much but you feel it after half the bottle is gone.Just a fine Dopple all around.

This was an interesting beer. Not what I was expecting, because it was a little light bodied for a duppelbock. This beer is a dark amber color; it pours a nice head that vanishes quickly. The aroma and taste if this Korbinian, is a malted caramel. If you see it at your store pick one up and give it a try.

Sweet malty, molasses like aroma with a hint of nuttiness. Little to no head on top of a beautiful nut brown body. Excellent malty flavor - just the right amount of sweetness. Alcohol is hidden extremely well - appears just a bit in the aftertaste though. Overall, an excellent dopplebock - hard to find - even where other Weihenstephaners are sold.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Wow!! What can I say except this is one heck of a good tasting Dopplebock!! This beer poured a light brown to a tan medium head. Dark brown body. Some carbonation was observed. It had a dark brown body. The taste was simply excellent! It has an extremely smooth taste, no bitterness or aftertaste. Darn, this was one heck of a good drink!! More please?

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a large creamy head of light brown finely sized bubbles. It has an extremely nice malty aroma that is very pleasant to the nose. The body of this beer is simply beautiful. Its a dark almost opaque brown color with some carbonation rising up the side of the mug. I loved the taste of this brew with elements of caramel, malt, and spice. It was extremely tasty. The head left a ring of lacing around my mug as it receded. This is an extremely good example of why I like Doppelbocks so much. Very smooth, delicious and one of the best brews I have had in a while. Einemal bitte! Once again: Im Himmel gibt es kein bier darrum trinken wir es heir! Translation: In Heaven there is no beer! That is why we drink it here.

This beer pours a dark amber/brown color with a medium head and almost no lacing. The aroma was slightly malty with hints of fruit. The taste was very smooth and sweet with a thick roasted taste to it. The drinkability is just a medium because it is very sweet and very thick. It is quite enjoyable, but I don't think I could drink several in a row.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Pours a roasted caramel color with a nice light tan head. The aroma is nice blend of sticky, dark fruit, caramel, chocolate, and dry grain. Smooth and clean mouthfeel. The flavors compliment the aroma nicely with plenty of great fruit, plum, raisin, cherry and fig. A wonderful value and a wonderful surprise.

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.
