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.

Wasnít expecting so much resemblance in flavor to the Dutch double bock beers. Everything is in there, roasty and caramel flavors in a perfect balance of sweet and bitter. 0,5 liters of pleasure.

JulienHuxley (2516) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle. Clear dark red pour with quickly receding tan foam. Aroma is fruity, cherry and toasted malt, light caramel notes, very clean. Taste is super clean, nice sweet caramel notes with a lasting toasty finish. Definitely on the doppelbock side of the strength spectrum without losing the drinkability of a lighter Bock bier. Very nice

Jow (1865) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle on coldest night of year thus far. Pours brown with nice beige soapy head. Nose of sugar and malt. Tastes of figs, raisins, malty, toffee, licorice, and some earth. Light bitterness and smooth palate. Enjoyable even if Iím pairing with a horrible football game.

On the bottle: 0442 Itís brown with nice cherry tones and loosely packed large bubbles that are light tan and quick dissipating, leaving a lightly etched surface. Banana, vanilla, toast, caramel, touch of cola and gobs of nougat. Taste is plenty of malt, a touch of salinity, some sweet malts and bready dough. Seriously, this is a like a sweet dough pretzel - really dig the flavor, so unique and works really well. Medium on full bodied with moderate carb and a slightly wet finish. This is really well done.

Stuedmaster (162) - Vista, California, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, banana, dried fruits, and alcohol. Dark brown pour with a small tan head that is gone fast. It is a rich, satisfying, dessert style beer that is not too heavy. It has a complex malt character that would go well with many meat dishes. At 7.4% abv it packs a punch without being too much.

Dark brown color with a medium head. Yeast aroma, light banana and malty. Solid caramel and buttery malt flavor. Very thick feel.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Bevmo. It pours a brown color with a fizzy tan head. The aroma is dark and bready with rich notes of cocoa, fig and very light roast. The flavor is the same. Rich and bready with raisins, cocoa, toast, fig and noticeable herbal noble hops. Full bodied, but more carbonation than I expected. Complex and tasty. Nice one.
