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.

16.9oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark copper with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy aromas of roasted malts, molasses, and some hints of campfire smoke. Flavor is of malts, some spice, and caramel with a sweet, nutty finish. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and the 7.4% is hidden very well. Great brew.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Smells like...dark German beer. Appearance is dark brown - almost black. The flavour is of a complex palate. The palate has definite notes of malt, with a sweetishness of caramel & chocolate. Overall, good. May be better served a bit colder.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Strong smoky, clove aroma - perfect for this style. Yes, its a doppelbock, but theres the "dunkel" gene in this one and those aromas come shining through. Malty flavor on the front of the palate and smoky flavor (with that touch of bitterness) on the back of the palate. Very pleasant beer with some balance. Weihenstephaner does it again - they always deliver excellent brews.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Dark reddish brown. Not much carbonation and just a bit of lace. Sweetish, satisfying malt flavor. Aroma of molasses. Very good beer.

BelgianBeerGal (4022) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
.5cL bottle poured into dimpled mug. Dark mahogany colour with a thin tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and molasses. Flavour was nice, sweet caramel and molasses. Maybe a touch heavy in the finish but enjoyable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark brown-orange color. Head was one finger high, light tan, and left a bit of lace behind. Aroma was of malty molasses accented by a hint of campfire. Slightly sweet and full bodied. Molasses came out again in the flavor with some brown sugar and a splash of alcohol.

Bottle- 16.9 oz....No head, creamy brown pour. Aroma of a porter- sweet and chocolate. Chocolate and smoke on the nose and tongue, bit of mustiness lingers. Rich, complex, nice.
