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 beer is very malt forward with hops playing a relatively small part. Color is that of a pretty dark brown ale. Flavor is potent with a somewhat syrupy quality and a bit of caramel. Nose is mostly from the malt aspect of the beer with some noble hopping showing through. Syrupy character of dopplebocks often put me off, but this one is more subdued and is a good example of the style.

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.

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.

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.
