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.

hauxe (558) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle and leaves a thick, creamy head that gently subsides. Aroma is a heady concoction of caramel, molasses, and dark fruit. Classic double bock. Overall sweet with chocolate notes and a light bitterness at the finish. Body is thick and lightly oily, but this is far from the heaviest bock Ive tried. Both Ayinger and Andechser are heavier I would say. No trace of the 7.4 ABV. Could go well with food but this one is a pleasure to sip on its own. Excellent.

Nocturne (1928) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown. Short white head. Notes of plum, coffee, earth and toasted grains. Lovely mouthfeel, well poised, thick, not too sweet. Pretty much what I was hoping for.

Bijl (408) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2016
Donker amberkleurig, crmekleurige schuimkraag, vrij helder, veel koolzuurparels zichtbaar. Aroma: Moutig, brood/biscuit, geroosterd, donker gedroogd fruitig, rozijnen, karamel, cacao. Smaak: Chocolade, geroosterde mouten, ook iets graan zoetig, noten, hout, karamel, geroosterd brood, donker fruit, licht kruidig en een lichte hopbitter. Een kleine alcohol warmte is er ook maar mooi op de achtergrond. Medium body tot volle, zacht mondgevoel, afdronk is warm, kruidig en bitterzoet. Een klassieker en heerlijk!

Bozo_skeleton (1099) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 4, 2016
Robe ambre couleur caramel, carbo moyenne, petit collet de fines bulles. Aromes cereales, caramel, banane Douce, presque onctueuse, tapisse le palais de notes carameliss. Malgre ses saveurs sucrs, son equilibre general reste excelent avec laddition de notes epics et terreuses. Le savoir faire de Weihenstephaner est incontournable
