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.

Dark dark red when held up to the light. At first its a bit heavy and sweet, but its gets smoother as you drink it. Funny how that happens with big beers. Its got a fruity, estery flavor. Not much bitterness at all.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Pour is ruddy dark brown with a thin sticky light brown head...smell is bright and sweet with some dates, brown sugar, cola, definitely some signature yeast...thick and soft mouthfeel, with some nice malty chewiness...the initial taste is very uninspiring...sweetness, with molasses and caramel then just prune juice...I dont really get any of the smoke that some of the other raters mention...some nutty peanut skin flavors toward the finish...leaving sort of a copper/penny aftertaste...

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Raisin, brown sugar, and milk chocolate nose. Deep burnt orange/brown. Large long lasting head. Deep smooth sweetness. Nicely rounded...

mmmbeer (1393) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Pint bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured semi transparent light black, brown head laced away, aroma of sweetened dark molasses, caramel, and malt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, some smoke quality to it in the middle intertwined with sweetness, heavy roasted malt notes on backend. Knew I should have bought more than one bottle...

Defreni (3063) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2008
Flaske. Mrkebrun l, nsten stout agtig i farven. Sd og maltet i duften. Dette gik endnu mere igennem i smagen. Typisk doppelbock men nuancerne druknede en smule i den sde maltbase.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle Black pour with decent tan head. Slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Actually smells and tastes pretty schwartzbier-ish. Good brew though, enjoyable.

This is a pretty good doppelbock. Pours with a nice cream colored head. Dark brown beer with malt, smoke some chocolate (?). Middle- to highly rated doppel.

LinusStick (3276) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 A nice doppelbock. A little too thin and watery to be great. Aroma is good. Strong caramel malt and sticky Sugar Daddies. Pour was a beautiful deep red/amber with no head. Taste was nice and sweet but not full enough. Strong caramel malt with a hint of roasted malt and some smoke. Doppelbocks are hit or miss with me and this is leaning towards the good side.

Pours a dark reddish-brown with an orange-brown head. Aroma has some meat in there, maybe smoked salmon...? Lots of power in there, pretty impressive. A hint of dark fruit appears as it warms up. Tastes like beef jerky... pretty subtle, but very good. Nice and clean finish, too. My only problem is a slight chalkiness in the mouth feel. Really classy beer. Ill be visiting this one again.
