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.

Appears dark Burgundy in colour with a voluminous orange-cream coloured head. Gorgeous, full chocolately aromas with dates and carob (I hate carob). It is like taking a sniff of a chocolate cake with dark fruits in it. Utterly more-ish and I wish I could share this with my beloved mother who adores such things. The flavour is marked first by prickly sharp carbonation and then sharp astringent juiciness. It wasn’t what I was expecting at all, not to say that I am disappointed. It has a just-ripening plumminess about it and then it sucks the liquid out of your mouth revealing tart redcurrant, raspberry and rhubarb. This mellows somewhat into dates, red apples, unripe apricot and thin treacle. An intriguing beer not for the faint of heart. A second taste uncovers chocolate and dusty cocoa. What an intrigue.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe - Deep cola brown body with big light tan head. Nose kicks with banana, then sweet malt, caramel, and a bit chocolate. Taste is malty, lots of caramel notes, plum and a mocha undertone. Complex and tasty. Nice.

Alkoi hyvin. Lopuksi tuli vähän liikaa viinaa. Väri hyvä. Vaahto hyvä. Perusmaku hyvä. Meni päähänkin.

DutchMark (275) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2015
Very good bock. A bit too sweet for my taste but still delicious. Nice deep brown with just enough carbonation. Flavor is complex: malt sweetness, overripe fruit, chocolate, burned malt. Sticky toffee and sirrupy in a good way. Powerful.

500ml bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Dark brown, quite full body. Aroma is sweet malt with a little chocolate. The taste adds caramel, smoke and even a hint of licorice. Palate is a lovely combination of cream and stickiness. Excellent Doppelbock, have to try it again soon!

davidezdonz (96) - , HONG KONG - SEP 30, 2015
A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 3rd October 2015 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It poured a clear very dark brown colour with hints of ruby and a one finger chestnut coloured head that dissipated quite quickly with only light spotty lacing. Aromas are malty, treacle, brown sugar, milk chocolate and hints of vanilla. Taste was similar to the aromas, there’s malt, burnt sugar, brown sugar, caramel, chocolate and a hint of dark fruit like prune. Creamy, velvety, mid to full bodied with low carbonation. Overall a very nice doppelbock from a great brewer. Just falls behind Celebrator in my book, but definitely something I’d drink again.

Marstonlad (610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Pours slightly reddish dark brown with a big, dense white head. The aroma features malty, a bit toasty elements: bread, bisquit, nuts. Taste is a bit sweeter than the aroma suggested; it adds caramel and dark fruitiness to malty features such as bread and rye pudding. Maltiness lasts well until the drying finish. No traces of hops appear. The palate is medium-bodied and smooth with low to average carbonation. Solid, sweetish doppelbock.
