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.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle. Ruby, clear body with a dense, beige head. Caramel, raisins, sweetness and a little earthy note in the aroma. The flavor is quite sweetish, mostly brown sugars, with caramel, dried fruits, a little roasted note, and some warming alcohol. Quite full-bodied, and finishing with a slightly roast, caramel and quite sweetness. Definately a nice brew, yet it lacks a bit to be The doppelbock. Maybe its a bit too sweet, hence lacking some balance. (070725)

Clear brown color with big wheat and yeast aromas. Baked bread flavors with a slightly sweet finish. Some purple fruits in there as well. Full bodied and smooth beer.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark caramel ruby, off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, wet earth, grass, nuts, toffee. Flavor is wheat, malt, caramel, vanilla, roasted nuts, molasses. The aroma threw me a bit off because Im not a fan of wet earthy smells. Overall, pretty decent.

rayg1 (593) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours a deep brown and develops a nice thick tan head which is very impressive looking. Aroma is nutty malts and sweet caramel with dark sugars. Taste is very sweet, even more so than expected and found it slightly cloying. Im picking up lots of brown sugars and toffee at the end of the sip. A slight roasted taste comes over and balances the sweetness to a degree but not as much as I would have hoped.

a dark maroon with a medium thin khaki head smells of burnt raisins. a light body with crisp but big bubbles tastes of toffee malt raisins and a light bitter burntness to it

jake65 (3511) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle: Aroma is fruity and vinous, some malts. Sweet. Color of ruby and mahoghany with a nice beige head. Tastes sweet, but with a husky malt presence. Wheat tones and a little dark fruit. Some alcohol can be detected, but not in a distracting manner. Thanks Buckdich.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Dark mahogany color, chestnut brown, nice thick head, tan head and decent lacing. Nose is rich with molasses and jaggery, nice plum and wheat esters. The flavor is balanced, notes of cocoa and hot chocolate, sweet dates and fig, cake, nice creamy finish. Savory or sweet, take your pick.

Sweet and bland. No hops and thin body. Mostly just a sweet taste---with little roasted malt flavor.
