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.

Dark brown colour with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, hebs, roasted malts. Taste of hops, dark fruits, bananas, roasted malts. Nice malty aftertaste which is very well balanced. Overall one of the best examples of this style.

Brown/ dark red color pour. Off white head rose and retreated to a ring and left behind spotty lacing. Aroma was of molasses, honey, malts, and roast. Taste was of molasses, burnt sugar, roast, and a caramel sweetness. Mild carbonation with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very good beer, but, the dopplebock style never really works for me.

Pours deep amber-black from bottle with generous tan head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate, plums, roasted barley. Tastes sweet, syrupy, toasty with notes of anise; finishes with strong bitterness that brings you back for the next sip. Full bodied, particularly for a lager with light carbonation. A nearly perfect production lager IMHO. Not for mass consumption but great with meals. Beer doesn’t get much better than this.

BuckeyeBoy (3177) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 6, 2015
500ml bottle thanks to Kyotolefty for sharing this. Pours out a dark brown with some ruby highlights a small head sitting on top. Nose is pit fruit nuttiness a touch of roast and a nice bread. Taste is more of the light roast malts some spice and the fruit.

OmegaX (1327) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2015
A good brew and only 2.99. Aroma is dried fruits, plums, heavy malts, dark bread. Flavor is thick with plums, raisins, bread, caramel. Dark brown color. Not much to say except it’s very nicely done, well priced and is sure to be a crowd pleaser of a beer.

Vignale (2385) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. Coca cola färgad, klar, cm-högt krämigt skum som snart försvinner. Söt brödig doft. Inte riktigt den krämiga munkänsla de bästa dubbelbockarna har. Men en fin smakbild med många nyanser. Massor av brödig malt i smaken men också lite torv, rostat bröd, fudge, lite anis och torkad frukt. Väldigt lätt beska. Välavvägt och mycket trevligt.

Saeglopur (747) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 1, 2015
500 ml bottle, one year old.
Dark brown body, with some red reflections and a medium, creamy, light beige head.
Rich aroma of dried fruits, almond, dark berries, bread, some cherry, slight alcohol.
Taste with about the same aromas, although very malty, fortunately not too sweet, but also not as rich as the nose.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes fruity, roasty, bready.

Nice one. Not very complex, but really well balanced, not too sweet. Overall not among my faviourite Doppelbock beers, but still a great example of the style.

Bottle from beer club. Pours dark brown with a good tan head. Aroma roasted malt and taste of chocolate and nuts. Also, just a little sweetness that lingers on the pallet. Really enjoyed this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wozap (250) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Leżakowane do końca terminu przydatności. Kolor miedzi, piana średnia. Zapach mieszanka ciemnego słódu, karmelu, śliwki i przypraw. Smak jest zrównoważone pomiędzy słodkim i nutami przypiekanymi.
