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.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Dark mahogany and a rather excessive and frothy head. Sweet and malty aroma with just a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is forcefully malty with some notes of sweetness... candy or caramel like. The finish is cloying and almost salty, but this is a good beer.

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 (1281) - 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.

One pint, 0.9 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper wth a frothy pinpoint tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma: caramel, toast, fresh hazelnuts. Clean fermentation. Medium carbonation. Flavor: caramel, molasses, figs and dried plums. Alcohol warming. Grainy malt sweetness fades to a pleasing dry finish. Not heavy or cloying. Liquid bread; most satisfying.

ebone1988 (1372) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Aroma is quite nice, figs, licorice, dark fruit, malt, caramel, more in your face than Celebrator. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, too dark to see through. Taste is figs, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, then a weird wheat, dark fruit, good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, weird wheat and dark fruit aftertaste. Overall, it’s real good but just a touch off point.
