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.

Poured a nice clear brown with with a light brown head which had nice lacing and mild retention. Aroma had some nice sweet malts mixed with a nutty character. Flavor was sweet with caramel notes and balanced out by a nice wheat biscuit-like malts. Creamy body. Good beer.

couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Dark copper brown. Some creamy light brown head, sustaining. Rich malty aroma. Strong toast and munich character with some caramel. Very creamy and smooth. Light, almost playful, but strong maltiness. Munich and caramel flavors predominate. Full and thick palate immediately fading away almost asking for another sip.

Bottle; pretty cheap price. Pour a darker shade of brown with a medium, very light brown. Aroma was very good with chocolate covered caramel, fruit, dough and yeasty alcohol. Very quality palate. Good taste with a high amount of complexity. A great example of the style.

ilovedarkbeer (2733) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Pours a nice dark brown color with some copper highlights. Light tan head. Nose is brown sugar, caramel, and a hint of roasted malt. Taste is very muted as I only pick up sugar and some malt. Very hard to taste anything. The alcohol content is well hidden I will say that.

TrefwoordPunk (1104) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and a smell of caramel, brown sugar, honey and malt. The flavor is malty sweet with brown sugar and a hoppy bite. I would have liked it a bit less hoppy. Good, but nothing more than that
