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 yellow brown pour. Aroma of milk caramel, toffee, acetate, trippel, hay. Tastes straight of the the feedbag; oats. Sweet. Alcohol bite on the palate and some creaminess. Very loud flavor. Spritz carb dry finish elevates it above other doppels.

umich03jm (1927) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle Pours very dark ruby red with a huge foamy head that fades very slowly and leaves a little lacing. Complex aroma of burnt dark bread, cherries, dark fruit, smoked meat, brown sugar, and a late hint of banana. Tastes good but not as good as the aroma. Comes off surprisingly watery. Very fruity with cherries and dark fruit, light raisin, light banana. Salty smoked meat in the finish. Medium body. Slight overcarbonation for my liking. Very good doppledock.

500 ml bottle at home. Pours caramel brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, caramel, some dark fruit character, brown sugar, earthy notes, smooth, solid classic style doppelbock.

SimonTja (243) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Roasty, a bit coffee note from it, but sharp roastiness with very little yeast aroma except aftertaste with some leathery earthy taste, quite good mouthfeel, very creamy, medium, a bit of licorice in the end.

KeefOz (881) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
BB 24.12.14. Poured a near opaque ruby brown colour with a two- to three-finger tan frothy head that diminished quickly (compared to other Weihenstephaner beers tasted recently) to a collar. Laced OK as spots and rings. Carbonation moderate to high. Aroma very subtly of sweet malt with a hint of sweet fruit; quite sweet. Taste quite sweet maltiness initially with a hint of sweet fruits but no hops bitterness evident Alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Smooth, clean and with a slightly sweet finish (not as sweet as the Tradition Bayrisch Dunkel).

574deadzone (1023) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours very dark brown to black with a thick khaki head that settles slowly to a thick ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves dark chocolate, toasted malt, savory meat, dark dried fruit, some spice. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Lighter medium body, active, crisp, finishing long with savory and toasted notes. If it’s possible for a doppelbock to be refreshing, this is refreshing. It also has lots to ruminate over, and is quite enjoyable.

venom666 (329) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2014
Cloudy, and dark brown. With a big creamy head. Aromas of malt, caramel, toast, and nuts are predominant, such as walnuts or hazelnuts. Some fruity notes are also seen, although more hidden. Malt and caramel tastes, accompanied by hints of burnt sugar, nuts, chocolate.

sfuen03 (320) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2014
Very creamy long lasting head. Malty aroma, hints of banana, raisins, roasted bread. Excellent alcohol masking, light to medium body, low carbonation, sweet warm finish. Taste is also very sweet, with licorice, caramel.

spasticbeast (21) - Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pour is very deep mohagany with a sizeable, but quickly dissipating head. Takes on the appearance of beautiful dark marble when swirled in the glass. Aroma is roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet upfront with malt and bittersweet chocolate. Just enough carbonation for a little tingle with each sip. Most beautiful looking beer I have had, but a bit too sweet. Very good, though it would have been even better with a little more age on it.
