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, interesting doppelbock. The flavor is complex and warming and the palate is thick and luscious. The flavor has lots of bread, caramel, nuts, raisins and even wood. My main complaint is that it’s all a little too sweet for me. Some more bitterness would be very nice here.

Sensacional, uma cerveja furtada com gosto de castanhas, folhas secas e frutas cristalizadas. Recomendo.

Una doppelbock muy suave a pesar de su graduación y aspecto, hasta el menos cervecero apreciaría su sabor dulce y su cuerpo maltoso que no pasa indiferente.

ignorant (13) - madrid, SPAIN - FEB 10, 2016
Dark brown turbid apparently dense. Good crown cream and foam large amplitude but half expired, and the duration is leaving traces of lace on the glass in the first drinks. Predominate aromas of malt, caramel, toast and nuts such walnuts or hazelnuts. more hidden fruity notes are also appreciated. Pretty body and carbonation that fills the mouth completely. silky, powerful entry at the beginning, with malt flavor that fills the buds along with candy, all accompanied by hints of burnt sugar, nuts and even chocolate more subtly, ending with an aftertaste of character markedly dry, medium-length, leaving a refreshing mouthfeel, without actually be cloying. perceptible alcohol almost all the time, makes an appearance in perspective.

sudsmeister (68) - Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2016
500ml bottle. Have only recently tried beer from this brewery and am glad I have. This has to rank right up there with Celebrator. Only I detected a hint of cocoa, which was nice. This is a fine doppelbock which I’ll be buying again.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle - Clear brown colour, medium tan head, good retention and lacing. Nice sweetish aromas of caramel, milk chocolate, dried fruits, dates and some honey. Taste is sweet caramel with dried plum and brown sugar, breadcrust, some cocoa notes, no hop bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, smooth texture, sweet finish. Great doppelbock.

migwell (211) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle poured into a 19oz. pilsner glass. Great dark fruit and sugary malt aroma, good looking dopplebock brown. Produced a good but rapidly disappearing head. This is a smooth, robust, well balanced and easy drinking dopplebock. Lightly carbonated and a bit on the sweet side. Chocolaty, full bodied and creamy, it almost tastes like there is no alcohol at all included. Very good example of the style.

Night_Cap (24) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Bottle 500ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a deep dark ruby with a tanned, dense, frothy had that was mostly lasting. Aroma is of dusty milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, oats, wholemeal bread, blueberries with light earthy/spice notes in the background. Flavour is sweet and amazingly smooth with an extremely light bitterness, chocolate malt balls (Whoppers), chewy caramel, roasted barley, fruit and nut toast, dried currants and a touch of allspice. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a chewy texture and a long, progressive finish. Alcohol content is deceptively well hidden!
