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.

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2008
This is a nice one. Appearance: Dark brown, looks suspiciously like Coca-Cola in my pilsener glass. Aroma: A tad (but just a tad) on the weak side in my book. Nicely malty and caramelly. Taste: Very nice! Raisins, caramel, a subtle but solid Noble Hop presence, nutty and toasty. I gave it a 8.5, which is not an option on the RB scale. Palate: Spritzy. Overall: It’s no Curator or Celebrator to be sure, but for the price (much cheaper than either of those!) it can’t be beat. I used it in the preparation of Doppelbock-Thai pork balls served with a spicy peanut sauce, with snap peas and rice noodles. A glass of it along with the meal was a divine pairing. This would be good with an array of desserts as well.

Bozo_skeleton (1029) - 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

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 (1336) - 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.

mateuszk (2158) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle. Dark amber, clear with medium sized white head. Lots of malty, caramel, bready notes mixed with dried fruits, medium sweet, really tasty. Medium to full body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, quite dry in finish with medium herbal bitterness. Really good, classic doppelbock.
