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.

Here is what you can hope for. Maltiness balanced by hops, smooth & tasty. Not a quick beer to drink but absolutely delicious.

Good dopplebock. Superspak sees them pleasing him this way, " 500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/30/2012. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apple, pear, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, floral, light pepper, nuttiness, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity esters and dark malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big apple, pear, caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, biscuit, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, light fruits, brown bread, biscuit, nuttiness, light chocolate, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of light fruity esters with a big dark malt balance; with big robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent doppelbock! Great complexity and balance of fruity ester and dark malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering."

Having tasted many beers in my time, this beer contains the complement of excellent qualities, full bodied with wholesome aroma. A meal in itself.

HammerTroll (508) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2014
Completely dark with brown hue, small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, alcohol and roasted malts. Medium to heavy sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, nice creamy texture. Long brown sugar finish. Nice, but a little bit too boozy for my taste.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany color with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of caramel sweetness and bit of nut. Taste of roasted malt, bit of caramel sweetness and hint of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, creamy with a nice malt feel that is well crafted. Enjoyable beer worth checking out

Alengrin (1801) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Somewhat different Doppelbock (label just says "dunkles Starkbier") with light beige, creamy, delicate head and dark coppery chestnut colour with ruby hue, clear. Powerful and complex aroma with impressions of coffee grounds, sherry, peat, blueberries, plums, chocolate, leather, cinnamon and cloves but also some oxidation (apparently the bottle has had its best time). Sweetish onset with caramelly and honeyish malt character, rich, drying and become bitterish after the middle with peppery hops, roasted coffee-like bitterness, a somewhat cloying candi sweetness and warming, little bit astringent alcohol. I should probably purchase a younger sample to get a better view on this.
