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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal aug-15: mørkebrun med flott beige skum som varer. Herlig duft av ferske bakervarer, rosiner og et rødt bær eller to. "Som å komme inn i et tysk bakeri" sier Sigmund og sukker fornøyd ved siden av meg. Flott tekstur, kompleksitet og med et balansert smaksinntrykk, den blir ikke for søt. Lys sjokolade med bærfyll. Kan umulig være bra for kolesterolnivået, men jeg tar allikevel noen lange slurker.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown colour and beige head on top. Smallish lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma has caramel malts, syrup, cocoa and some berries. Taste is quite sweet and malty. Caramel and syrup with some dark chocolate also. Really thick body and medium carbonation makes this really bold beer. Really enjoyed this one.

Mostly black color, little bit red with nice beige head. Intense aroma of malts, bread, hint of toffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet and smooth, mixture of caramel, toffee, syrup. Nice roasted malts aftertaste with alcohol warm. Amazing beer, would recommend this to anyone! Everything in this is just pure gold

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful dark brown-black color with amber highlight and a big beige head. Aroma is malty-bready, but with bitter chocolate and hints of coffee. The taste is an absolute surprise, with cherries and other fruits coming through, really more cherries than prune, bitter chocolate, nuts, pleasant complex finish. Low carbonation, full body, no booze. Enormously smooth-silky mouthfeel. I love Weihenstephan’s Weizen products and am not convinced by their Helles, so I was not sure what to expect, but damn, this is an excellent Doppelbock with a great balance and perfect drinkability. Korbinian absolutely plays in one league with Celebrator and Andechser.

Unsurprisingly excellent. Dark brown with foamy latte coloured head. Medium body. Prunes, dried fruit, tea and berries all in there, with a strong malt base.
