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.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 In my opinion, it is a good doppel bock. I prefer this one instead of the andecks, but it is just a personal opinion. The taste is not so strong with a classical taste of ginger bread and not too smocked. The color and the carbonation are classical for this beer.

Bawelt (263) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2015
Très déçu. Le nez est caramelisé mais très faible. En bouche, le caramel "Doppelbock" (aux arômes sirop d’érable et sauce soja) est présent ainsi que la levure typique weihenstephan. Le problème est que d’une part les deux se marient mal (plutôt écoeurant) et d’autre part, cette bière a très peu de corps, est très aqueuse et finalement assez pauvre... Orientez vous vers la ayinger celebrator ou la andechs Doppelbock.

McSherman (427) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2015
Dunkelbraun, leicht rötlich schimmernd mit weißem Schaum. Tolle süße Malzaromen, die leicht röstig und rauchig sind: getrocknete Früchte, dunkle Schokolade, Brot, Sirup. Ein stimmiges, gehaltvolles Bier. Empfehlung!

Gangstergafje (416) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
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.

Dark brown reddish color, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dark dried fruits, chocolate, bread and hint of sweet spices. Sweet and lightly dry taste has similar notes, mildly bitter finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Very enjoyable dark beer.
