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.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Murky brown, thin tan head. Fruity (plum and raisin) aroma, with a dark bread note. Maybe a hint of rum, too. Flavor is pumpernickle bread and a hint of raisin, with some rye, too. A bit of alcohol heat in the finish.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Tap at Toronado. Malt, malt and more malt. Pours very dark with an off white head. Atromas of malts, caramel and raisins. The flavors are pure malt with a hint of caramel. This is probably the best malty beer I have ever tasted. One could say is somewhat one-dimensional in that way but nonetheless there are nuances. The sweetness comes out later, initially there is more of a roasted flavor to it. Very thick and satisfying mouthfeel.Very enjoyable beer.

gorgeous. mild opacity, nut brown toffee color. 1/2" head, dissipates nicely to a film. smells like a box of raisins. some beer smell too. pretty woody. a bit light bodied, and not terrifically malty. im actually very happy with this beer. its entirely dark fruit and apples and stuff without being super sweet or thick.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Drank with stegosaurus. Poured a dark brown with decent head at first but dissapated quickly(retention was still good) Fruity aroma possibly some banana. Carmel malt flavor but taste fell a little thin for my likings but still a good brew.

This is a well balanced beer, but lacks a little flavor. Would definitely drink this one again though.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 6, 2006
16.9 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with ruby highlights. Thick tan colored head faded quickly. Aromas are of roasted Carafa malts, toffee, and yeasty bread. Flavors are of brown sugar, sweet caramel malts, slight bready flavors. Rich mouthfeel, decent body. Finished slightly sweet & roasty.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Pours to a dark garnet body with a lasting large creamy tan head. The aroma is a malty raisin bread and light cookie dough. The flavor is malty with brown sugar, strange malted grain profile, light bubblegum, lots of yeasts, mild green raisins, light woodsyness like Anchor OSA. Flat feeling dry palate. Leaves my mouth watering. Nothing really going on here to excite.

Pours out a fairly dark brown. It has a thin but pleasing head. This has a lot in common with many of the other dopplebocks I have had. Its got caramel and malt in the nose and taste. It has a solid roasty prescence. It is suprisingly drinkable for a dopplebock, but seems to lack some of the complexity that this style usually offers. This would be a great pub beer for sure. Weihenstephaner seems to be more concerned with drinkability and smoothness with their other beers, and this one seems to have the same focus. The alcohol is hidden very well and the flavors in the brew make sure to not overpower your palate. A solid effort.
