UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 wonderful aroma of sweet malt, poured a nice head that quickly disspated, but left lacing. dark ruby in color. taste is very sweet, slightly warming, but not overpowering. minimal roasted flavors, slightly burnt sugar taste. palate is smooth. overall a nice beer that is pleasant to drink. I would buy this again. (7/4/7/3/13 = 3.4)
Rerate from bottle at the brewery. Rich malt aroma. Very sweet and toasty with some bread crust. Some very light chocolate and roast with a fairly dry finish. The tour guide pointed out the brown head on the beer, and said that is the key to knowing that dark malt is used as opposed to sinimar. Very enjoyable.

i was excited when i first saw this in my downtown beer store, but it seemed to fall when i popped it open at home... pours with a lack luster head, and has a molasses, toffee strange sugar aroma... 1 in 5 americans has genital herpes... some nice flavours and abv is well hidden but it doesn’t really do it for me... happy to try it, happier i won’t have to again!!

Chocolate-mahogany color with a thin light-tan head. Aroma is roasty grains, slight molasses, toffee, plums and dark cherries. Flavor is a beautiful rich bounty of chewy dried dark fruits, bits of toffee, chocolate - reminds me of some of the finer dark "sipping rums" I have enjoyed. Finish is fairly crisp for such a mouthful of flavors, but does leave some lingering roasty grains and hints of coffee. Wonderful doppelbock from teh "world’s oldest brewery." yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Weihenstephaner Korbinian is a solid, crystal clear, brown-red beer with an oily, bubbly, beige head. Fresh sweet clean malt dominates the aroma. There are notes of bread and possibly raisins. It has a smooth medium body and a silky finish. It is lightly sweet and wooden in flavor. There are tastes of brown sugar, dark bread and resiny hops. It’s all soft and smooth.

7/6/08 On draught at the Dog & Pony, Renton, Wa. Aroma is rich with dark fruit and very light molasses. Appearance is dark brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is rich with molasses and dark dried fruit, plums and some caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carb texture and lingering grainy finish. Overall, very good and easy drinking for such a big beer.

Deep black/brown with thin head.toasted coffee and chocolate aromas are there, as well as vanilla and light caramel scents. Berry fruits and a toasted malty quality highlight the flavors. Good mouthfeel, and nice lingering and warming aftertaste. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Pours translucent mahogany into the glass, with a thin tan-ring head that diminishes to nothing. Big malty nose, with hints of tobacco and smoked meats. Sweet malt to the tongue, with some dates, slight smoke and a tiny toasted bitter to finish the pull. Very nice, warming malty brew, with good carbo levels that compliment a medium-soft mouthfeel. Decent complexities at work, and only get better as it warms toward room temperature, opening further and lending tighter integration between the nose and the flavors. Nice job on this one. gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2008
.5l bottle, medium head with some lace, smells of sweet dried fruits (mildly)- Tastes sweet, figgy, some underlying hop bitterness- very smooth mouthfeel, the carbonation is really fine. No alcohol heat even though it is 7.4% abv- very nice high quality beer. donteatpoop (127) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Poured a dark amber brown with medium tan head that left a nice ring lacing on the glass.
The smells were faint, but I picked up some burnt caramel and dark malts.
Tasted a bit of coffee and chocolate, roasted malts, and hops.
Thick and heavy, but silky smooth.
Pour me another please, I could drink these all night.

This is a great double bock. It had a great deep color with a nice toasty and malty aroma. The balance is very nice as it has a nice light bitter finish. This is good stuff!
