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.

Maris (1226) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2015
From a 500ml bottleon 21/11/2015. Pours a very dark amber/chesnut, with a biggish light tan head. The nose is super malty - rye bread, caramel, toffee, molasses. The flavour has all the features of the aroma, along with lashings of Christmas cake. This is just an absolute sweet malt bomb, with bugger all bitterness . The palate is creamy and chewy and the carbonation is soft. Very nice.

Bottle pour into pint glass from Discount Downtown Beverage, Dover, NH. Aroma is initially sweet yeastiness (like champagne) from the head but, once that dissipates, rich bread, caramel/vanilla/molasses, with some fruit. Appearance is clear, dark ruby red with decent sparkle, finger-width white foam head and minimal lacing. Taste is moderately sweet molasses/caramel/toffee with some alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, lively carbonation and long sweet finish. Overall, this is very solid and well crafted all around.

Batavi (220) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2015
Fles 500 ml. gekocht bij speciaalbierpakket.nl, uitgeschonken in Weihenstephan bierglas. Tht. 08/12/2015. Helder donker kastanjebruin bier met een robijnrode gloed, beige romige schuimkraag, die na verloop van tijd wel inzakt. Prachtig aroma, heel moutig en veel gedroogd fruit als rozijnen, pruimen verder ook veel nootachtige elementen in het aroma. Walnoot, hazelnoot, chocoladecake, koffie en aardachtige tonen. Werkelijk een indrukwekkend aroma deze Duitse Doppelbock. Het mondgevoel is zacht fluwelig met een lichte carbonisatie, alcohol van 7,4% is nauwelijks waarneembaar, eigenlijk volledig verborgen. Wel een opvallend complex smaakpallet met zeer moutige en granige tonen. Verder rozijnen, pruimen, gebakken banaan, chocolade en een iets kruidige en aardachtige afdronk. Een voortreffelijk bier, voorlopig zelfs nog beter dan de Schneider Aventinus. Wel met de notitie dat deze fles extra lang was doorgerijpt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 500ml. A dark chestnut beer with a medium size brown head. Aroma is of firewood, roasted malt, spices and vanilla. Taste is moderately bitter and low on alcohol. Some carbonation and astringency. Aftertaste is of roasted malt and wood with an earthy finish.
