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.

The beer has a very nice apearence. The color is a dark red brown and the beer is clear. The color is beautifully dark. The beer forms a creamy soft foam. The foam has a nice almond color. The beer smells really good. I smell caramel, almond, syrup, a little roast. All beautiful dark bitter sweet aroma’s. There is also some fruit. The beer smells perfect for an autumn day, and it tastes perfect to. The beer is very warming. I taste also the same strong bitter flavors as there are in the smell. There is a bitter sweet taste. I mostly taste a delicious roast flavor. There is also caramel and syrup, all very nice. The sweet syrup is a perfect match for the bitter roast flavor.

Beautiful pour, cola color, gentle carbo, dense head. A: sweet malts, cola, grass note, faint hint of cherry and licorice. Ok. T: taste is much more mature. Starts sweet, vanilla, sweet malts, with full, velvet smooth mouthfeel. Hearty bitter development with dark chocolate, gentle boozy touch, reminds a bit of cough syrup. Aftertaste is nutty, roasted malts. Great tasting beer.

Pours with a nice head and dark red/brown colour. Very heavy malty aroma and dark caramel. Very warming and one of the best doppelbocks I’ve tasted.

Alkoi hyvin. Lopuksi tuli vähän liikaa viinaa. Väri hyvä. Vaahto hyvä. Perusmaku hyvä. Meni päähänkin.
