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.

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.

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.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a brown color with a khaki colored head. One-dimensional aroma of dark malts and toffee. Taste includes roasted malt, a touch of smoke, nut, maybe some light cocoa, and alcoholic warming towards the end. The beer is a little on the sweet side. Average mouthfeel and carbonation level. A decent beer, but somehow it left me wanting more.

douglas88 (8996) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle from Lees liquors in Las Vegas. Pours a dark brown body with a nice thick beige head. The aroma was just great; powerful fruit, spices, and malts. The taste was yeasty, with some rye bread, a hint of cloves, some sweet german candy, and a nice fruity aspect. It goes down really smooth and is damn tasty. A nice beer for sure.

harrisoni (18230) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Deep ruby colour with thin deep beige head. Lovely fruity malt aroma. A dunkles starkbier apparently. Decent dark beer with decnt dark cherry/plum/grapey flavour. Bit bready, some roasty toasty malts. So do I like it? Well its not bad, but not really sure. I mean the beer is good, just not sure its in my zone.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Earthy malts, roasted and grainy bready flavor. Smooth on the palate with a sweeter finish. Almost a big meaty in the aftertaste. Mineral and metallic finish.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Pours a very dark red brown (but not black) with a medium khaki colored head. Aroma is a little fruitier than I expected, especially without any hefeweizen yeast. Theres some chocolate, cherries, rye toast tanginess, and toffee. Pretty pleasant mix, more to offer than that, but easy to sum up. Nutty chocolate flavor with some dark rye toast, a little cake, nuts, finishes with a toast, coffee and slight dark chocolate finish, but the aftertaste kinda cloys a bit. In beers like this, German yeast tends to add a nice tangy contrast, and the fruit on the nose is a plus. Medium bodied, fairly high carbonation, and despite the full flavor, it doesnt have a good creamy enveloping mouthfeel. Pretty tasty stuff.
