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.

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.

Color marrón oscuro casi negro con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio (casi marrón), de más de un dedo de grosor, persistente, cremosa. Poca carbonatación. Cuerpo medio. Aroma a malta tostada y a alcohol (moderado). Sabor a malta tostada, profundo, y caramelo. Muy completa y disfrutable.

Antonio369 (144) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2016
0,5 L, served in dimpled mug. Poured a dark brown with a two finger tan head. Aroma: Banana, malt, caramel, coffee. Taste: Chocolate, overripe banana, coffee, vanilla, raisins, dates, bread, licorice, plums, burnt toffee. I was quite surprised by the sweet malty goodness of this brew. Very malty, sticky mouthfeel. No bitterness at all. Medium carbonation. A medium body with a very malty, sweet finish. Absolutely delicious doppelbock! I am falling in love with Weihenstephan...what a top class brewery! Prost!

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Gut im Glas anzuschauen. Aber geschmacklich nur guter Durchschnitt.

Flaska köpt i Freising hos Weihenstephaner. Tuff resa hit över ett överhettat München. Nåväl i humpen ska den. Mörk och fint skum. Underbar maltton med russin på toppen. Fin fyllighet i munnen. En stor dubbelbock !

16.9 bottle poured into mug. Nearly opaque dark brown appearance with beige lacing. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit, bread and malt.Taste is outstanding. Malt hits the tongue first, followed by very sweet caramel, maybe some roasty chocolate. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation.
