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.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark deep brown with a thick tan head. Sweet nose with caramel and toffee. The flavor is intense. One of the sweeted dopplebocks I have tried, it is nonetheless very well put together. Sweet malts with a clean smoky finish. An excellent dopplebock!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Dark brown-mahogany body with a big, foamy beige head. Interesting warm caramel, roasted marshmallow, and dark bread crust aromas. Chocolate, caramel, and mild dark fruit flavors with medium high malty sweetness. Initial fizziness subsides and leaves a smooth, creamy texture. A good, tasty doppelbock from a proven brewery.

jasonp (1577) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours dark clear mahogany with a medium, creamy beige head. Smoke, peat, candy-like sweetness and a hint of grass in the nose. Very bold and malty with notes of caramel, dark cherry, plum, raisin, sweet toffee, peat, brown sugar, molasses and a hint of chocolate. Pleasantly sweet with just enough hops for balance. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Decent head retention. Overall, great beer.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 Poured a deep copper brown with a beige head that left a little lace, and some syrupy legs. Sweet aroma with, some black bean sauce, toffee, sweet dried fruit and a bit of alcohol. Some saltiness on tasting accentuates the sauce character, and the sweetness enriches it. Quite a good beer - very tasty. Second time around this seems to be less cloying and more palatable, but I guess that happens depending on when you drink it. I think I still prefer Salvator though.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle. Quite sticky and sweet on the palate, too much so. Soy sauce and sweet caramel/toffee characters and not a lot else. Admittedly this is not my favourite style, but i have been pleasantly surprised in the past (Andechser!!). Somehow i was expecting more, from a brewery i really like.

rederic (3293) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2006
Dark brown ruby color, with some reddish highlights, with a frothy tan-colored head, sweet caramelized malt, toffeeish nose, toasted malt, with a dried figs fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a full-bodied palate with a sweet caramelized malt character, with some dark dried fruits fruitiness notes, hint of dark chocolate and treacle accent, with a toffeeish and faint coffeeish textures, leading towards a sweet warming malty, fruity and raisiny finish.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Nice brown color. Not my favorite style of beer but not bad. Malty with carmel syrup taste but somehow not sweet. Does go good with salmon. Dark but not overpowering.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Ruddy brown pour with a dark red hue around the edges of the glass. Thick head that is very similiar in appearance to a latte or cappucino. Awesome aroma of candied pecans like the ones my mom makes around Christmas. Medium body and an unfortunately thin watery palate. Flavor is like an overly malty nut borwn ale with a bitter and smoky finish that lasts for a while. If this were fuller bodied it would be hard to beat.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Clear dark brown port under a collapsing medium light brown frothy head. Aromas pf dark caramel, smoky malt, some earthy notes, and a touch of floral hops. Medium/full bod, and a little sticky and resinous. Huge malt flavors of sweet caramel, roasted nuts, and molasses. Still, there is a nice balancing bitterness, although it still finishes a little sweet. A very good doppelback in the classic Bavarian style. Its no Celebrator, but certainly holds its own.

16.9oz - Aroma is toasty malts, carmel and toffee with a touch of hops. Pours dark brow with medium head and good lacing. Flavor is sweet and toasty carmel, toffee, and a little nutty. Palate is sticky and sweet. Nice.
