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.

500ml bottle thanks to Kyotolefty for sharing this. Pours out a dark brown with some ruby highlights a small head sitting on top. Nose is pit fruit nuttiness a touch of roast and a nice bread. Taste is more of the light roast malts some spice and the fruit.

A good brew and only 2.99. Aroma is dried fruits, plums, heavy malts, dark bread. Flavor is thick with plums, raisins, bread, caramel. Dark brown color. Not much to say except it’s very nicely done, well priced and is sure to be a crowd pleaser of a beer.

Vignale (2577) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. Coca cola färgad, klar, cm-högt krämigt skum som snart försvinner. Söt brödig doft. Inte riktigt den krämiga munkänsla de bästa dubbelbockarna har. Men en fin smakbild med många nyanser. Massor av brödig malt i smaken men också lite torv, rostat bröd, fudge, lite anis och torkad frukt. Väldigt lätt beska. Välavvägt och mycket trevligt.

Saeglopur (1120) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 1, 2015
500 ml bottle, one year old.
Dark brown body, with some red reflections and a medium, creamy, light beige head.
Rich aroma of dried fruits, almond, dark berries, bread, some cherry, slight alcohol.
Taste with about the same aromas, although very malty, fortunately not too sweet, but also not as rich as the nose.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes fruity, roasty, bready.

Nice one. Not very complex, but really well balanced, not too sweet. Overall not among my faviourite Doppelbock beers, but still a great example of the style.

Bottle from beer club. Pours dark brown with a good tan head. Aroma roasted malt and taste of chocolate and nuts. Also, just a little sweetness that lingers on the pallet. Really enjoyed this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leżakowane do końca terminu przydatności. Kolor miedzi, piana średnia. Zapach mieszanka ciemnego słódu, karmelu, śliwki i przypraw. Smak jest zrównoważone pomiędzy słodkim i nutami przypiekanymi.

This dunkel was unremarkable. It is a strong beer, yes, but a great beer, no. The aroma revealed something slightly off, reminiscent of bret. The taste was well balanced between malt and bitter but the body was a bit less than I anticipated from the visual and olfactory clues. I was a little disappointed overall.

Pours dark brown with reddish highlights. Thick beige head dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt, nuts, roast. On the palate, there’s malt, malt and more malt, with bread, toffee, nuts, roast. It’s not a particularly complex range, but it works well. A medium body and smooth carbonation, with the alcohol very subdued, makes this a very easy drinking doppel bock.

Big boozy and malty, sweet, caramel, toffee, syrup aroma. Nice color and head. Flavor is roast, brown sugar, chocolate. A little more subdued than the aroma anticipated, but really tasty, and not too sweet. Good stuff.

Good doppelbock. Slightly boozy, slightly sweet, lots of flavor hanging out on the palate. Roasted nuts a sticky caramel. Not the best doppelbock I’ve ever had, but certainly a great example of the style.
