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.

Pours dark ruby with thick white lingering head. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and a bit of booze. Taste: chocolate, cinnamon and coffee are prominent. Finish is not too boozy given the 7.4% abv. Overall, good, but not great.

ruigo (853) - PORTUGAL - APR 5, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from Ruppert (Luxembourg). Pours a deep brown colour with a thin, persistent tan head. Aroma has roasted, chocolate, molasse and raisin notes. Some alcohol on the nose. Average to soft carbonation and medium to full oily body. Taste is a well balanced voyage between bitter, sweet and a roasted very dry finish. Overall, a meal with a few dimensions. Great beer!

Pours a caramel brown color with a khaki head. Malt, caramel, toffee, bread and brown sugar aroma. Toffee, caramel, malt, bread, brown sugar, raisin and slight chocolate flavors. Medium full body with moderate carbonation. Caramel malt and brown sugar finish.

BeerCoff4025 (10) - Iowa, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Poured into a stein from a bottle. Pours a deep brown with an off white head. Small lacing as you drink. Tastes of roasted malt, caramel and a slight hint of cherry. Nice bite at the end, you will notice the stronger alcohol content after a few sips. Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by this beer based on the previous reviews. Still enjoyable to drink, but nothing really stood out about it.
