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.

Pours black, slightly translucent with a small tan head. Sweet malty aroma with plenty of brown sugar and syrup. Taste is very malty, lots of bread, quite sweet. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Pretty good beer.

Bottle. Thanks Davido. Nice Belgian almost aroma, nice maltiness, chocolate cocoa, ovaltine. Taste is more fruity, smooth, brown and rich. Wheaty. Definitive Dubbel character. (what on earth was that supposed to mean?)

Bottle shared. Thanks Davido! To steal Neil’s words "like a Westmalle dubbel" on the nose and palate really. Slight Belgian yeast notes and cookie malts. Light chocolate. The Belgian character about it adds something a little more to it than most doppelbocks. Very enjoyable.

Delicious dopplebock that pours to an impressive tan head, releasing a full aroma of plums, caramel, freshly turned earth and alcohol. Finish is both dry and sweet and fruity. Another great beer from an excellent brewery.

BeerRenter76 (668) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 9/4/08. Korbinian pours a dark amber body, thin head with minimal lace left on the glass. Aroma of licorice, caramel malts, and earth. Flavor was similar but with hints of alcohol, and dried fruit, it was a little on the sweet side. Overall a fairly good beer, even though i liked it i probably wouldnt buy again.

Heidbummer (152) - SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2016
Bottle at Weihenstephaner Berlin (great place). Pours dark with ruby hints. Smoke, toast, figs on the nose. More figs, treacle, port even on the taste. A fantastic end to a meal. Bloody lovely.
