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 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.

yespr (43039) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2007
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.

Nice beer. I love doppelbocks too though. If you love doppelbocks, then find this one, or ask me, I can get it for you. I would be happy to trade. Reminds me of coffee. Very nice feel on the palate, very pleasant. Little carbonation and a dark color like it should. Nice.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Beer pours darker than night, with a nice head. Do you like coffee? If you do, take your time in the rich aroma of this beer. Sweet and malty, alcohol very well hidden. Mouthfeel is pleasant with good carbonation. This is a good beer to relax to, but one is enough in a night for me.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a dark copper brown with a sparse off-white head. Sweet caramel and slight nutty aroma, but mostly sweetness. Nice taste - sweet malty flavor with mild spice. The sweetness never gets to be overboard and the finish actually ends up bring a little dry. A nice dopplebock, still getting a feel for the variety available within the style.

illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2007
500 ml, lot 4187. Great pour, nice darker tan head. Dark brown with rubyish tint in the glass. Lots of malt up front, hints of chocolate, toffee, molasses, raisins, wood - maybe oak? Very mellow, almost non-existent carbonation. Good mouthfeel, nice finish. Hides the alcohol (7.4%) extremely well. Good beer.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Chestnut brown colour. Rich malt aroma - toffee, some light earth and brown sugar. Soft body. Pleasant molassesy note. Genteel, understated elegance.

Becker (14) - Bayern, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2007
This one was nice, but not what I had hoped for. A very nice dark coloration, but the aroma is lacking. Flavor is nice and full, but lacking in real character. Overall, good, but not great.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Deep dark brown, nice color. Smells like malted grain, a little on the syrupy side, some cake elements. Big creamy mouthfeel with clean but thick finish. Good balance of flavors with the residual sugars balanced by hop in the end, never cloying or too sweet even though there are hints of chocolate liqueur.

nearbeer (5219) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2007
500 ml, lot #9137. Beautiful mahogany with ruby tint. Huge creamy head that settles in and leaves some frosting. Big molasses and dates on the nose; slight cocoa and alcohol aromas. Sweet molasses-cocoa front is toned down nicely by an earthy, woodsy dryness that turns the taste to dark fruit, oak, and bitterish green herbs for the finish. Medium body is fairly smooth and finishes dry and slightly astringent.
