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.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 This is my type of doppelbock. A wheat doppelbock at that. What I am learning about Doppelbocks (in general) is that many places don’t view it the same as what I, Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, Spaten, et al. do. Many so called doppelbocks are nothing more than slightly hearty bocks...if that. This is a great example of how to make a wheat version.

Shared a bottle at Plonk. Clear, dark brown, big malty flavours with little or no hop aromas and a sweetness with hints of chocolate and fruit. My first of the style. Pretty good.

Another in the long list of beers I should work into the rotation more frequently; can’t believe this is the first I’ve had since starting to use RateBeer! Aroma of caramel malt and molasses. Slightly syrupy but less sweet than that sounds.

Head is beige and quite big. A bold looking beer. Aroma has roasted malts, chocolate, toffee and a little bit of syrup. Taste has syrup and toffee sweetness, then lots of roasted malts but there is this slight alcohol that pops up in the end which is rather unpleasant. Medium+ body and medium carbonation.

Greit weizen doppelbock. Soft wheaty body, with a nice taste of smooth caramelised malt, fruity yeast and mild hops. Great.

Appearance is deep brown, opaque, with Reny highlights and a thick tan foam cap. Aroma is bready and roasted malt. No noticeable hop aroma or alcohol. Taste is rich caramel, dark fruit, molasses, and a hint of roasted malt on the back side. Hop bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel is medium with a decent carbonation and slight alcohol warmth. Finished very malty with no noticeable hop character and leaves a thick caramel malt flavor on the tongue. Seems somewhat subdued and maltier than other doppelbocks, with less of a dark fruit/licorice character

adster (164) - HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2014
Egészen mély, rubinvörös árnyalatú, a pohárban lévő mennyiség csökkenésével egyre átlátszóbbá válik. Illata borszerű, égetett cukor, mazsola és dió aromái kergetőznek benne, íze pedig nagyszerűen továbbviszi ezt a kissé fanyar, enyhén karcos vonulatot. A vártnál súlyosabb, égetett édesség, zserbó zamata bontakozik ki, melyhez idővel további, kisimultabb ízjegyek csatlakoznak némi tejszínes, vaníliás elemek formájában, így téve kiegyensúlyozottá az összhatást.

This beer is a strong dark tasting beer kind of a chemical taste also need to be served really cold. Good luck.

Dark copper color with a full, tan head that left lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma releases caramel, butterscotch, and just a hint of fresh coffee. The malts are delicious and rich but not overly sweet at all, and the beer itself doesn’t seem heavy-bodied at all. Great beer for breakfast!
