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.

3.5
grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Courtesy of DYCSoccer17. Purple-tinged ruby brown. Sparse, very fine lacing with excellent legs. Nutty, chocolatey aroma with hints of anise and whole wheat bread. Sweet, luscious flavor with chocolate and coffee notes. Substantial, somewhat smoky bitterness finishes it off. The finish is more unexciting and flatter than one would have expected from what preceded it.

xmarcnolanx (945) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Rich color with a very caramel nose. There are also hints of chocolate and metal in the tates. A good dopplebock, but not a great one. 636315 ---re-rate--- 6/25/09 Aroma is sweet caramel and toast. Taste is sweet, a bit slick and fruity. Mouthfeel is full and viscous without cloying. Nice

3.7
Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Dark red, near black colored. Little beige head. Aroma has licorice, roastiness, sweet caramel and mild hops. Medium to full bodied. Licorice, chocolate, good hops and roastiness in flavor. Aftertaste lasts with conveniently sweet licorice and some berries.

One of the best Dopelbock’s I’ve sampled to date. Outstanding color and palate plus it is very smooth. Proud malts and delicious sweet caramel notes touching just a little too much. Well done.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2007
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is licorace, malts, roast and dry dark fruit. Flavour is sweet malts, hops, alcohol, caramel, licorace, berries and some slight sourness.

4.1
detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a deep cola brown, a little bit reddish when held to the light, with half an inch or more of tan foam. Minimal head retention and lacing. Strong and sweet aroma - caramel malt, maplenut, some chocolate, and an earthy fruitiness. Bold flavor up front, very malty and both sweet and dry. Chocolate, brown sugar, and earthy maple dominate, with some subtle dried fruit in there as well. Finishes less sweet than the initial flavor, and leaves an oaky, nutty dry aftertaste. Now there’s sweet caramel and cheap chocolate soda in the aftertaste. Complex and flavorful. Not quite medium body, carbonation on the light side. With all those flavors going on, I find myself just a little bit disappointed that the flavor quits a bit early.

smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - JAN 12, 2007
pours a rich caramel color and no surprise there is a ton of caramel in the nose with notes chocolate and metal. the metal was there in the taste along with caramel chocolate and a spicy bitterness. this is a tasty doppelbock

Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle at ØLbaren - thanks Mette for the taste !! Dark brown - offwhite head. Bread, malty, caramel, berries, a lot of nice tastes but a bit watery finish..

3.6
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 don’t think this is one of my favorite styles.
