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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours cherrywood color with big off-white head. The aroma is pepper, clove, floral honey, and caramel. The flavor is caramel and pepper with a little bit of alcohol and clove. The finish sports a few spicy notes, but leaves very little in the way of aftertaste. All the flavors blend together very well.

Poured a dark brown with a nice head. Very malty taste along with alcohol. Not bad. I just dont think this is one of my favorite styles.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 (Bottled) Quite clear, dark red cola brown color with a smallish, tanned head. Very malty and caramely, very slightly sour and moderately fruity aroma with smoky hints. Very full-malty, slightly sour and roasty, surprisingly neutral (not cloyingly sweet despite the huge amount of malt) flavor with licorice hints, and a mildly bitter finish. Obviously no signs of alcohol here. Quite full-bodied, velvety and smooth-carbonated palate. A solid, enjoyable and warming, sweet and caramely-malty doppelbock from a great brewery. Not quite as balanced as the Weltenburger Asam-Bock, though, and the sweetness may be too much for some.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2006
Very strong fruity scent, no actually berry scent. A bit of tomatoy hops. Very dark red pour. Pure ruby red. Nice had. A ton of flavour. Claims to be from the worlds oldest brewerly 1040. Alcoholy raisiny/pruney caramels. Smoky, some dark bitter chocolat and herbs.

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle poured a dark brown with ruby showing against the light. A thick light brown head that exhibited lot of lacing crowned this brew. A nice full malty aroma with a touch of nuttiness. Body is strong malt with a roast character, a little less sweet than I expected, but pleasant. Nice full creamy mouthfeel.

A pleasant aroma of sweet caramel. Tastes initially sweet with a mouthful of bitter hops at the end. Overall a plesant drink.

This one tasted especially good as I used it to help celebrate a drubbing of the hapless Cowboys tonight in the NFL. This is a strong rich good bock. Dark orangish brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of alcohol, fruitcake, malt and caramel. Rich palate that is all at once sugary, chocolaty, roasted but then it peters out just a bit at the end. Loved it but probably not the best of the style.
