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.

This beer pours a deep rich brown with a medium tan head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The smell is roasted malts and chocolate. The flavors are awesome! chocolate, maybe some figs with a good heaping of dark malts balanced out with a god hop backbone! not a lively beer as it shouldnt be, but dry and mellow with a sweet chocolate flavor that really lingers! Well crafted beer!

The pour reveals a clear reddish brown color with a thick tan head. Very nice aroma of fruits, rich malt and caramel. The flavor is also very good, red fruits are accompanied by lush, rich malt and caramel. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Pint sized bottle. Very dark, like a schwartz beer or stout. Tan head, w/lots of lacing. Aroma of molasses & concord grape. Sweet, with nice chocolate bitterness mellowing the sugars, although some unpleasant licorice tones come through on some sips. Earthy hops ending.

Pours a dark copper color with a tan head. Aroma is of caramel malts, dark fruits, molasses, roasted malts, and some smoke. Thick on the palate. Flavor is very much the same with a dry slightly bitter finish from some floral hops. Pretty good.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2008
This is not my favorite example of this style, but nonetheless is a very well made beer. Has a slight heaviness, almost syrupy on the palate. The aroma is wonderful, with almost a peaty smokiness. Chocolate and cinnamon clove spice dominate the flavor. I can imagine this is a wonderful food beer.

Headbanger (3945) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2008
16.9 oz bottle-A dark brown body with a small tan head and an aroma of sweetness, malt, molasses, smoke, and fruity esthers. Taste of the same with malts, chocolate, caramel, and slight coffee coming out throughout this medium to full bodied brew. Im not a big fan of this style but I tink this brew is very well made. Great beer.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Pours a nice deep reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty with a bunch of caramel malt coming through. Taste is very smooth and malty, with of course lots of caramel flavor. Very good, but not as good as Celebrator or optimator. Still a great doppelbock.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 31, 2007
This proves to me that Doppelbocks are one of the most enjoyable styles in beer IMO. Great brown color with a light brown head. Sweet but dry, easy to drink yet full bodied. Slight caramel sweetness and maybe dried fruit. Very enjoyable, would like to hav again if i remember to get around to it.

50 cL bottle. Pours beautiful dark amber, visible, with a dense off-white head. Dried fruity and dark roasted malt aroma. Flavour is smooth chocolate flavoured malty with a slight note of dried fruit and a mild woody note. The barley notes keep lingering into the far finish and provide some warmth with the alcohol. Mild bitterness in the far finish.
