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.

Buying this one was a no brainer to me, especialy considering how good the hefe is. Pours out brown, with a rich smoky smell coming from it. Taste is malty, rich, creamy, and just all around good. One of the better dopplebocks I have had before. Nice one.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Bottle from Kevin... Happy, biatch?

Pours a lush mahogany with an aroma of molasses and plum. Nice head that leaves a clinging lace. Flavor is bitter molasses with a nice undertone of smooth, sweet jazz. Chuck Mangione is my real father. I don’t know why I wrote that; don’t ask. Free-form writing can kick ass. Palate is thick and coats the tongue well. This beer demands you to spend time with it. Thanks, Kevin. And no, I won’t sleep with you. Ever.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Dark brown color with a thick and fully lasting tan head. Fantastic aroma with hints of raisin, cherry, and brown sugar. Apples, molasses, cherry and some alcohol in the flavor. Gets sweeter and sweeter as it warms. Very enjoyable doppelbock.

There are a lot of bad beers in German, despite the country’s reputation for being master brewers. In fact, some my lowest rating of all time are for German beers. This is NOT one of them. It really shows why German brewers have gained the reputation they have. Starts with a light malty nose with some spice. Dark brown color and a foamy head. Sweet caramelly tastes, berry and chocolate notes in the middle. Like a dunkelbock with some wheat. Cinnamon spicy end. Creamy texture and a full body. Very smooth. Everything is perfectly balanced and the alcohol is in the background, but intensifies everything.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Nice dark red color with a medium frothy head on top. Band aid, light chocolate and nutmeg nose. Smooth and silky texture. A bit alcohol, loads of malt, cinnemon and chocolate in the taste. Caramely. Just a nice tiny bit roasted in the finish. What a goodie! Thanks so much Saarlander for this treasure!

Pours a ruby brownish with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty with a faint woody note. Flavor is crisp and sweet, with a nice bitter finish. A little simple, but it is German what else can you do with water malted barley and yeast.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Inviting dark brown pour with nice tan, if somewhat limited, head. Strong aroma of sweet malts - ripe plums, raisins - and grain. The flavor is largely on the sweet side though there is some hop bitterness in the finish. The sweet malts taste of toffee and brown sugar. Medium body. Solid and drinkable doppel.
