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.

Very dark beer, red tinges coffee coloured head sticks around. Smoky, sweet caramel aroma, quite light. Sour wheat with a caramel smoke touch. Cloying and smokey on the aftertaste.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 21.12.16. Pours ruby brown with a thick light beige head. The aroma is malty sweet, nutty and caramelly, dried fruits and a bit of roast. Tastes sweet, even surprisingly so, I get notes of dark dried fruits, somewhat caramelised sugar, and at points, the hinting presence of alcohol. Roasty and perhaps even chocolaty. Not too deep or multilayered though. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel, carbonisation modest. Kind of thin. Overall a very well done beer, and enjoyable while tucked in a warm blanket with -15*C outside.

Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet and malty with a well balanced bitterness that makes it almost sour. Im not an expert on doppels, but i like this one a lot!

Cola dark, dark beige head. Mildly roasted malts on the nose. Oily mouth feel which is really nice. Sweet but not too sweet (I’d prefer just a bit more dry). A little liquorice and chocolate. Overall quite nice.

500 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish brown with a resilient beige head. Aroma is caramel, sweet, roast and fruity. Flavor is burnt caramel, big time toffee, overripe fruits. Finish is roast, some coffee notes and fruit. Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel and weak to average carbonation.

SvanteL (120) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
Mycket mörkt rödbrun. Doftar kokta grönsaker, pumpa och katringplommon. Söt smak med torkad frukt, mörk limpa och aningen sälta. En riktigt god dubbelbock. De Klomp 2015-10-03

Thuis, enorme zwarte paal van een fles om alleen weg te werken. Zacht stevig kastanje/geroosterd. Backlog from 2015/11/26.

From a bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a thin head, delicious and smooth, lovely roasted flavours and no hint of the alcohol. Good stuff.
