COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Korbinian, the full-bodied, dark Doppelbock with light brown foam, wins beer-lovers over with a balance of fruity hints of plums and figs, a dark malt aroma - reminiscent of toffee, nuts and chocolate. Its roasted flavour goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as venison and poultry. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

chicagobears (463) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2008
Pours a dark reddish brown. Aroma is faint of toffee and caramel. The flavor is much more pronounced, smoked apple wood, toffee, cranberry, caramel, and almond. Medium bodied and slightly syrupy. Real nice flavor.

doppelmeup (51) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2008
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pilsener glass. Very pretty auburn colored pour, remindining me of a redhead I once new. Creamy white head settles on the top, and lasts all the way down the tall slender glass. Aromas typical of a dopplebock, and not overly pronounced. Sweet malts dominated, with brown sugar and toffee overtones. Almost a Heath bar in a glass. Wonderful taste. Sweet malts prevail, but the beer is not overly syrupy. There is no doubt that this is a doppelbock. Slight alcoholicy bitterness lingers slightly on the palate. Creamy, smooth, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. I could drink these all night! Overall, this is an exceptional beer, worthy of its high rating. Highly recommended!

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottled, very cold. Pours similar to a cola. Nose is roasted malts and some toffee. Taste is the same with a bit of alcohol evident towards the end. One of the few Weihenstephaners that didnt have clove flavors. Finish is bitter. Good beer, above average drinkability, but left me wanting more..

ChazMania (669) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 22, 2008
Bottled. Dark and figgy brown sugar smell. Small lacing and tiny head. It is smooth at out of refrig temps but gets really sugary as it warms up. The reviewer below says its not as sweet on the tongue....I think differently, this is very sweet. Maybe that is the age of the bottles?

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
50cl bottle at home: Brilliant crisp deep ruby through and through. A tall tan caramel head works its way down to a thin film. Full aromas of rich brown sugar and toffee drizzled onto cherries and topped with chopped roasted nuts. A touch of coffee and cocoa powder add to the roast. The roast qualities bring out a subtle smoke or firewood aroma. The cherry aroma does have a slight cough syrup quality. Thankfully this beer is not as sweet on the tongue as it is in the nose. A nice balance between malt, fruit, and roast grains. Fruit and malt intermingle up front while the roast hangs out in the back, only coming forward towards the finish before alcohol puts him back in his place. A slight dry apple skin character shows up sometimes in the middle. There is also an woody, earthiness that seems to come from the roast as it dries out in the finish. Nice.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2008
A clear dark red/brown colored beer, with a nice beige foamy head. It disappears quit quickly. An aroma of milk chocolate, some cherries, a touche of nutes. The taste is light roated malts, some vanilla and caramel. A medium body. It has a mild hop and bitternes. Not a bad beer.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2008
Dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Sweet roasted malt and caramel aroma. Nice flavors as well, including toffee, fruit, caramel and roasted nuts. A good brew, but not my favorite style.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Red brown with a fine dense head. Sweet aroma filled with malty goddness and straw. Flavours of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, roasted bread, nuts and berries, but also some alcohol.

apshah99 (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Very malty and caramel sweet aroma with a little fruit. Roasted malt and coffee flavor, almost finishes like an alcoholic fruit cake. Very smooth and enjoyable, alcohol is well hidden but does slowly become evident.
