Our Korbinian, the full-bodied, dark Doppelbock with light brown foam, wins beer-lovers over with a balance of fruity hints of plums and figs, a dark malt aroma - reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Its roasted flavour goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as venison and poultry. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
This is a magnificent and complex brew. Appearance: Pours a mahogany brown with reddish hues. Light tan head. Smell: I instantly thought of chocolate and caramel, but quickly aromas of brown sugar, molasses, plumbs, rum raisins and soggy rum bread, toffee, and more filled the nose. Taste: Big malts create a perfect foundation for dozens of additional flavors. Dark caramel, rum, dark fruits (raisins and plumbs dates), loads of cookie dough and bready flavors; subtle suggestion of toffee and nuts and a hint of German Hops. The dominate sweet character is offset by a gentle bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: This beer is big and silky smooth. The velvety malt is oily slick and slides through the palate like a heavenly creamy silk. Drinkability: Who could make a Double Bock so drinkable? Never doubt Weihenstephaner. This beer is terrific and goes down with dangerous ease. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Very pleasantly malty aroma of the typical bock. Dark brown color. Tan head which disappated quickly. Not an overly cloying flavor that some bocks have. Bock aftertaste stays on the tongue for several minutes after drinking. I’d buy it again!

Pours deep red-brown with a small off-white head. Great toffee and caramel aroma with hints of plum, nuts, and chocolate. The flavor is more sweet malts with some nuttiness and a lightly lactic finish. Incredibly smooth for a big beer.

500ml bottle, served in a Celebrator glass. Clear brown beer with a nice light tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a tingly tartness on the tongue. Well balanced and tasty. Enjoyable and satisfyingly excellent dopplebock. On a par with Salvator and Optimator, but falls short of Celebrator.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-brown with a large lasting creamy tan head. Very nice aroma of dark malt, dark fruit, yeast, caramel, nuts and chocolate. Delicious creamy flavour of dark malt, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted nuts, hops and alcohol. Medium bodied. Wow, this was one of the best Doppelbocks I’ve ever had.

DarkMagus (504) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Nice aroma of dark roasted grains and malt, wheat, yeast, some caramel-like sweetness, dried fruits (raisins, dates, plums). Generous foamy head, nice dark brownish reddish color. Nice rich flavors of sweet malt, wheat, yeast, dried fruits, with sweet caramel and toffee undertones. Crisp and refreshing despite the heaviness of this beer. Awesome.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Pours deep coppery rubish with 2-finger khaki head. Great look. The aroma is of fermenting figs, brown sugar, hops, caramel malt. The taste is caramel malty, with notes of brown sugar, cinnamon, hops, and slight rauch. Very crisp and clean, but the complexity falls off as it warms. This went great with buttered corn-on-the-cob smothered in spray butter and Old Bay!

This rocks! Dangerously delicious. Bittersweet fruity nose, with some very nice caramel malt, mixed over the top of delicious black, almost has a chai taste to it, with some liquid vitamin mineral dryness. Sticky, but not syrupy, with a sweet mouthfeel but still remains very clean and is never heavy.
