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; 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.

3.5
ilovedarkbeer (2748) - 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.

3.4
TrefwoordPunk (1289) - 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

3.9
desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Pours a golden amber with a tight beige head. Aroma is caramely, doughy and sweet with no significant hoppiness. Flavor is rich with caramel and toasted malts, ripe fruits, a faint hop bite, and some smoky undertones. The finish is sweet and lingering with mild alcohol warmth. Extremely well balanced; bold without being overpowering. Very nice!

illidurit (2354) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Poured into my Eichhof bier mug. Pours a dark transparent brown with highlights ranging from ruby to orange. Nice fluffy white head of two fingers. Not much lacing. Nose is very dark, with a kind of fruitcake-like sweet doughy maltiness. Some milk chocolate influence as well. Tastes very sweet, with a lot of rich malt and sugary dark fruit notes like date and prune. The chocolate note comes out in the flavor, as well as a distinct flavor of fresh grainy bread. Very smooth on the palate, with great carbonation and a nice medium-full body. A bit too sweet to be incredibly drinkable.
