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.

Aroma is malty and rich. The color is dark and clean. The taste has an appealing roasted start that leads into a smokey malt flavor with a mild sweetness followed by a pleasant and slight bitter finish. Very well balanced. On of the better examples of a true German doppelbock.

Best beer I’ve ever had. There may be better, but I haven’t had it. Enjoyed it cool, not cold, as that’s how a dopplebock should be enjoyed. I just wish I could find more than a couple bottles at a time.

Bottle at home. Black-dark brown colour, with a medium brown head, that disappears quickly. Nose is nuts, roasted malts and slight booze. Taste is low bitterness. very light sweetness. Also some nutty notes. Medium carbonation. Nice!

tmoreau (3527) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and mug served showing a clarified, darkest brown color, with ruby highlighting, a frothy layer of tan head froth, and foamy cling to the dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was malty and toasty, with dark fruit as prune, and caramel sweetness. A bit less than medium bodied, with somewhat low carbonation, the taste was similar to the nose, with less dark fruit exposure, low bitterness, and sweetness that seemed to build as it warmed. Classic, and fairly tasty Doppel, but would have appreciated more body, livelier carbonation, and maybe some dryness to the finish.

SlackerMads (2736) - DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle recived in the European swap thanks to SinH4. Pours dark brown with a meidum sized beige head with fine retention and lace. Nose has chalc, minerals, banana, sulphur. Flavour has sulphur, minerals, banana, light caramel, green plants, wood, light metallic notes. Medium/full body, oily texture, fine carbonation, medium sweet with low bitterness. Dry and light acidic finish with roasted malt. Not as rich and full as I hoped and the metallic thing bothers me.

Bill Becker (751) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Pours a clear dark brown with reddish hues. Head of foam is off white and shrinks to a ring around the glass. Caramel and roasted malt in the nose. Deep whiffs reveal a fruity and perhaps a nutty character. Caramel, chocolate, toffee, a slightly tart fruitiness comes to my taste buds. Working in unison to make for a smooth and delicious beer. I have no idea how fresh the bottle is but the taste and smoothness of the body has me hooked. Excellent.

One of the best beers I have had. Very complex taste and aromas, lovely dark brown color ... what’s not to like.
