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.

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.

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.

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2008
This is one of the best Dopplebock beers Ive ever had. Sweet, malty, an undertone of raisins with a good overall mouth feel. A definite buy.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Very classy and gets the style to the T, there is nothing at all that detracts from this. Dark and sweet and full of malt, this beer is exactly what it is. Wish i would have had some food with it, the natural sweet darkness would have been a nice compliment to lots of things.

jcwattsrugger (12386) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2008
16.9oz bottle-pours a rich foamy tan head that laces and red color. Aroma is roasted husky dark malt. Taste is sweet roasted dark malt-molasses/chocolate, dark fruit, secondary earthy hops. Nice. Soft carbonation.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Dark brown with the thinnest of white heads. Sweet, fruity malt aroma ... very much a dopplebock nose. Flavor is lightly sweet malt: dark, rich and maybe a tad earthy with some caramel and ripe fruit. Soft and subtle mouthfeel. Lightly smoked/roasted bittersweet finish. Nice.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Clear ruby red, sticky, frothy head. Malty, dark fruit aroma with some spicy hops. Big and malty, fruity and sweet with excellent dark caramel malt flavor. Huge, soft palate. Finishes very delicate for such a large beer. Quite graceful.
