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.

A big malt treacley nose hits when you first open the bottle subsiding to a mild fruitiness. Colour is a royal dark bourbon red with a medium small medium lasting tan head. Body is medium fullnes, lowish carbed, clean and non-coying. Flavour is primarily medium low sweetness caramel malt with touch of lingering fruitiness. Mild sweet and dry roasted malt reasonably clean aftertaste. Alcohol very well masked.

Dark chestnut color. Aroma of unmalted cereals and malt. Good body strength, good caramel flavor, but the final is a bit stale. In the final there is basically dark caramel.

Beautiful amber color. Light aroma (malt, caramel)Ö more interesting flavor, with a good malty structure and a balanced, long final.

Yeast, malt, dark fruit, hickory and marzipan in the aroma. Clear, very dark brown but not opaque. Thin off-white head that recedes to cover. Mildly sweet bock flavour with an earthy roastiness and light raisin flavour. Pleasant lasting aftertaste. Mildly astringent. High carbonation. I had higher hopes for this one. It was very good, just not fantastic. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere. Bottle.

Big foamy and sticky off-white head over a clear ruby brown body. The aroma consists of sweet maple, toffee, roasted and smoky malt, dark and red fruits with prominent character(cherries, plums) and an enticing earthiness. Itís very fruity and almost smoky, but actually not that spectacular after a few sips, earthy grape bubble gum if such a thing exists. Body could be a little thicker, but carbonation is moderate and appropriate. Basically, the palate doesnít seem to reveal the promised secrets from the sniffing, but this is still a very good beer if not great.

Bottle: Apparently Iím the only one who thinks this, but the aroma seems to a combination of salt and grass. Smells almost like a soup but I canít think of what kind (itís on the tip of my tongue). Very strange. Pours a dark transparent reddish-brown with a tan head that dies rather quickly. Decent lacing. Very malty taste. Very, very slight bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat malty aftertaste.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Fruit jam gelling with caramel, cooking luxurious malt cookies... A silky mouthfeel and perfectly leveled residual sugars force the eyelids to slowly close every other sip... Earthy connotations add depth in the finish for a most elegant Doppelbock, whether in the bottle or on tap at the brewery restaurant...

Clean amber body with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is strong and sweet with big bursts of malt. This is a very malty beer, smells like a can of malt extract. Flavor is massive, full of malt and alcohol. Sweet almost cherry flavors in the highly alcoholic finish. This is one prize of a beer. Overall, this is an awesome beer. It should be slowly enjoyed from a snifter. Bottles are the perfect size too. Outstanding!!!

I would probably rate this one second only to the Celebrator amongst the doppels Iíve sampled. For fans of smooth, malty beers, donít miss this one. Creamy, with a sweet (but not overly so) carmel-like flavor. Pours a deep brown hue, with a foamy head and good retention. Almost perfect mouthfeel. Another great beer from a great brewery.

Cola like coloured body with a large lasting tan coloured head. Aroma is most certainly malt, caramel and slightly roasted. Taste follows the malt aroma with more malt again, a touch of sweetness, alcohol is hidden and a creamy oily texture. Cheers!
