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.

drdisque (745) - Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
From bottle. Aroma is sweet licorice. Flavor is very sweet, almost like that hispanic Malta non-alcoholic drink. Syrupy mouthfeel as well. A little spice as well. I don’t taste as much depth as some others seem to be seeing. Still pretty good.

tightslice (832) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is molasses, sorghum syrup, burnt sugar, maybe some boiled raisins. Taste is molasses and chewy malt candies. Rich and sweet but balanced especially in the finish that mellows out nicely.

Enjoyed multiple times. Lots of toffee, dried fruit and cake character, yet very smooth and balanced, fairly dry finish. Love it, a true German classic!

SG111 (1092) - New York, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottled. pours fairly dark brown, borderline black, tan head. Aroma is vanilla, fig (very figgy), toffee, dark fruit, I’d call it prune. Flavor is wow, fig, toffee, prune, sugar. Really nice. I haven’t had this one in a while, and honestly, I’m happy to revisit it. Really good doppelbock.

Nagy, tömör, bézs, tartós hab, sötétbarna szín. Édeskés, karamelles illat. Íze édes, karamelles, enyhe keserűvel és mérsékelt szénsavassággal. Testes, jól összerakott, finom sör.
