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 shared. Thanks Davido! To steal Neils words "like a Westmalle dubbel" on the nose and palate really. Slight Belgian yeast notes and cookie malts. Light chocolate. The Belgian character about it adds something a little more to it than most doppelbocks. Very enjoyable.

Delicious dopplebock that pours to an impressive tan head, releasing a full aroma of plums, caramel, freshly turned earth and alcohol. Finish is both dry and sweet and fruity. Another great beer from an excellent brewery.

BeerRenter76 (842) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 9/4/08. Korbinian pours a dark amber body, thin head with minimal lace left on the glass. Aroma of licorice, caramel malts, and earth. Flavor was similar but with hints of alcohol, and dried fruit, it was a little on the sweet side. Overall a fairly good beer, even though i liked it i probably wouldnt buy again.

Bottle at Weihenstephaner Berlin (great place). Pours dark with ruby hints. Smoke, toast, figs on the nose. More figs, treacle, port even on the taste. A fantastic end to a meal. Bloody lovely.

Aroma is very malty with a toasty aroma. Appearance is a dark brown with a nice fluffy off white head. Flavor has a great melanoidin malty flavor. Bitterness is medium low, but enough to prevent the beer from being cloying. Mouthfeel is medium-full with a medium-low level of carbonation. Overall, its a great tasting dopplebock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is malty and rich. The color is dark and clean. The taste has an appealing roasted start that leads into a smokey malt flavor with a mild sweetness followed by a pleasant and slight bitter finish. Very well balanced. On of the better examples of a true German doppelbock.
