Our Korbinian, the full-bodied, dark Doppelbock with light brown foam, wins beer-lovers over with a balance of fruity hints of plums and figs, a dark malt aroma - reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Its roasted flavour goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as venison and poultry. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Delicious smell of fruity sweetness with a caramel chocolate bread overtone. The flavor is that of a delicious chocolate with dried plum. The head is tan and frothy. The palate is silky smooth with very little carbonation. Overall a delicious beer before bed or with a heavy dinner.

Bijl (280) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2016
Donker amberkleurig, crèmekleurige schuimkraag, vrij helder, veel koolzuurparels zichtbaar. Aroma: Moutig, brood/biscuit, geroosterd, donker gedroogd  fruitig, rozijnen, karamel, cacao. Smaak: Chocolade, geroosterde mouten, ook iets graan zoetig,  noten, hout, karamel, geroosterd brood, donker fruit, licht kruidig en een lichte hopbitter. Een kleine alcohol warmte is er ook maar mooi op de achtergrond. Medium body tot volle, zacht mondgevoel, afdronk is warm, kruidig en bitterzoet. Een klassieker en heerlijk!

Bozo_skeleton (1030) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 4, 2016
Robe ambrée couleur caramel, carbo moyenne, petit collet de fines bulles. Aromes cereales, caramel, banane Douce, presque onctueuse, tapisse le palais de notes caramelisés. Malgre ses saveurs sucrés, son equilibre general reste excelent avec l’addition de notes epicés et terreuses. Le savoir faire de Weihenstephaner est incontournable

GoofproofTom (9) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016 does not count
Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Little fruitiness as well. Dark to red colour with a small, lasting White head. Slightly transparent. Taste is sweet at first with lots of caramel and sugar, but gains a nice roasted accent. Also tones of liquorice and fruit in there. Alcohol sometimes peeks through in the taste. Aftertaste is roasted, slightly bitter but still with lots of caramel in it. It is however not as sticky as expected, considering the sweetness of the beer. Palate is nice and oily, just as it should be. Wonderful doppelbock, in short.

vinivini (1340) - BELARUS - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle acquired from YantarCoast. Huge thanks. Deep ruby, tall dense beige head. Perfect lacing. The nose is bready, vinous, dried fruit, chocolate. Medium body. Oily. The taste is a copy of taste. Enormous smoothness. Light bitterness. Great pleasure drinking this.
