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.

From bottle. Aroma is sweet licorice. Flavor is very sweet, almost like that hispanic Malta non-alcoholic drink. Syrupy mouthfeel as well. A little spice as well. I dont taste as much depth as some others seem to be seeing. Still pretty good.

superspak (5127) - Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2017
500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/16/2016. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, toasted biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, raisin, plum, fig, date, apricot, apple, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, toasted biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, raisin, plum, fig, date, apricot, apple, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, toasted biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, chocolate, dark fruit, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light increasing dryness from lingering bitterness as well. Amazingly clean lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is well hidden with a mild warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic doppelbock. All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Rich malt complexity with complimenting underlying fruity notes; and balancing noble hop character. A highly enjoyable offering, and classic style example.
