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.

3.7
littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
Aroma is malty, but not very strong. Light sweetness in the initial flavor that grows with the finish. By the finish the malty flavor takes over. Not really bitter at all. Nice.

3.3
maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2007
Clear deep ruby body with a medium creamy light brown head. Sweet malty molassas aroma with a syrupy background. Sweet grainy molassas flavor with some dark malt in the end.

3.4
3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2007
500ml bottle. Doughy tan head on top of a murky dark brown body. Buttered waffles, maple and toast on the nose, with a decent burnt bread crust and light cream and smoke scent. Creamy and silky up front, sweet over the middle, smooth in the finish. Flavor is creamy smoke and pastry, light butter or diacetyl note, but really it focuses on a large dose of creamy smoke.

3.8
Grovlam (4253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished. Absolutely no lacing. Clear flat looking body with a dark mahogany color. Aroma was delicious sweet rye bread, caramel, vanilla, yeast, burned, cinnamon, spices. Medium to full bodied with a flat carbonation. Excellent sweet flavor with some burned bitterness to balance it. Light burned and slightly alcoholic finish. Really good Doppelbock!

3.3
DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours black with red highlights and a small off white head. Aroma is strong and interesting though not too appealing to me. It smells like mud. Taste is malty, smooth, a bit fruity and bitter. This was all right but nothing really special.

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 19, 2007
16.9oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear ruby with a one finger fading beige head. Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, grain, nuts, and buttery toffee--smells fairly sweet. Flavor has the addition of a bit of milk chocolate, as well as all of the aforementioned aromas into a dry finish. There was also a hint of salted hazelnuts. Bitterness was minimal, no alcohol detected. Medium to full body with light to moderate carbonation--pretty smooth. Very good beer, and one of the better doppelbocks I’ve had lately.

3.6
ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Dusty, woody and slightly metallic malty aroma; deeply chocolaty with strong coffee notes, a little grapey; sweet with a little dark roast bitterness, enough to keep it from being cloying; creamy body; almost roasty, lingering, but smooth, finish.

3.7
DerBiermann (18) - Sofia, BULGARIA - MAR 16, 2007
Weihenstephan is a synonym of beer quality: there is a famous institute for brewing. the bavarian experts make this very dark and strong malty beer.

4.1
gwpom (298) - Akron, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Dark cloudy amber with a night tight head, this beer has a taste that jogs my memory to something I can’t place. Nice full flavor, roasty and fruity and not over alcoholly. Got this on recommendation from beerlord, who is a bock fiend. I need to try more of these.
