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.

fraternie (857) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
All malt. Creamy body with tons of roasted chocolate and sweet caramel with a hint of dark plum underneath. Subtle warm bread and wood show through the finish with little to no hop presence, but this is very smooth, warming and rich.

Daanminator (190) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Deze al een tijd geleden op maar hij beviel echt niet. Gedronken van de tap in een 0.5 liter glas van Weihenstephaner. Het is een echte dubbelbock, smaak is zwaar. Geen tot weinig schuim. Vol donker bier.

CraftyBeerTour (95) - Barcelon, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2014
50cl bottle. Rich intense aroma: molasses, sourdough bread, plum cake. Light beige head. Dark reddish brown. Roasty, caramel edge, but flavour is mainly rich and fruity - dark, cake fruit, sherry-drenched raisins. Very light bitterness. Light carbonation. Some silkiness in the mouth. Heady in its richness and fruitiness.

Moravius (691) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
Flasche (50 cl). - Schwarzbraun, dunkler Schaum. - Antrunk sehr dunkelmalzig aber nur zurückhaltend röstig. Bitterschokolade, Kakao, Lakritz, Holznoten, pikante Säure. Die Malzsüße wirkt nirgends dick. Gut rezent, sehr vollmundig, samtiges Mundgefühl. Im Hintergrund leicht holzige, schwach grasige Herbe. Ausreichend bitterer Nachtrunk. - Vornehmer, außerordentlich harmonischer Doppelbock, der elegant die Kurve von der tiefen Malzigkeit zur holzigen Bittere schlägt, ohne dick oder fuselig zu wirken, trotz eines untergärig eingeschränkten Geschmacksprofils.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Brown coloured beer with a off-white, very firm head. Madium carbonation. The Weizen background of this beerbrand is abundantley clear. The typical creamy taste is there. With a differrent sort of fruitiness (raisins?). Roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good beer, a bit to little character for a doppelbock.

Xenon (104) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Leaves a very thick lace. Not quite as heavy as a celebrator. Still a good flavor. Dont know enough about the style to compare to others.

brianza_ale (160) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
50 cl. Pours an abundant creamy and dense beige head, deep brown to black colour, showing some ruby reflexes. Smells toasted and dark malts, caramel, cocoa, bit of dark/dried fruit. Tastes super malty, crystal malts, caramel, raisins, chocolatey; extremly refined, smooth all malt sweetness, nearly no bitterness at all. Average carbonation, almost full bodied, but still quite very drinkable as in the best deutsch tradition. A really nice one !
