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.

Bottle of... scent of plums figs and raisins. Dark brown with lingering carbonation and head. This taste awesome. Very complex beer with hints of chocolate,nuts, and a sweetness to this great beer. Smooth and silky on the palate. Overall this beer is the bomb.

OnTheTrail (467) - Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Very dark coppery brown, modest light brown head. Aroma is rich toffee and plums. Flavor is toffee and dark fruit, then some chocolate, mostly sweet but a little hop bite. Smooth carbonated mouthfeel. Nice, richly flavored beer.

Ritzn (1140) - GERMANY - NOV 7, 2016
Dark brown with little brown head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, toffee, brown sugar, a bit roast, mocha. Taste is umami, a little salt, lots of brown sugar sweetness, a bit roast bitterness. Very rich and tasty. Long finish of more of the same, full body, low carbonation. A bit too heavy, even for a Doppelbock.

hauxe (626) - 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 (1951) - 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 (494) - 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!
