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.

This doppelbock had hints of belgian-style dubbels and singels. Odd, really. However, I quite liked it for its uniqueness. OK.

A Salvator clone, IMHO...but isn’t that a good thing? Buttery malt flavor overwhelms the senses.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2002
Deep garnet in color, huge biege head and sheets of lace. Nose is caramel, roasted grains, fruity, somewhat sweet. Start is sweet, the top light to medium, the finish is hop spicey, tart, dry, acidic, and is quite robust. The addition of the 7.4 percent ABV, does make it unsuitable for the ’Palate Challanged’ ’Light Beer’ crowd.

Pours with a dark amber, caramel color. Produces a thin beige-colored head of foam. Aroma: Sweet; layers of malt, nut, dark fruit and molasses. Flavor: lively mouthfeel through having a moderate amount of carbonates; toffee, caramel, plum and raisin flavors threaded by nuts and coffee. Round, silky, lingering finish. Bitterness value: 32.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2004 A rich, complex Weizenbock. Deep amber color with a thick white, durable head. Initial nose is that of ripe dark fruit, molases and caramel. Silky smooth palate which is dominated by the malts. Some mild banana esters make their appearance, but palate is one of dark fruit, spice and sweet molasses. Alcohol cuts down the sweetness a bit to prevent it from being cloying. A real classsy brew!!

Nice weizenbock, sort of like drinking two or three dunkelweizens at once. Almost chocolatey.

It seems to defy categories; tastes similar to a wheat doppelbock, somewhat sweet, but lager-like.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2001
Beautiful amber color, nice head. Sweet malty aroma, no hop aroma detectable, but alcohol present in the nose. Very wheaty sweet taste that starts sweet and stays sweet. Decent, but slightly disappointing.

Spicy and fruity. Add a 7.4ABV and you have the recipe for a great Doppel! Another great product from Bayer.
