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.

enotheque (25) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Delicious with generous layers of complex flavors: nutty, sweet fruit, bitter spice and a wonderful nose as well. One of the most interesting doppelbocks Ive ever tried, perfect for roasted meats.

First sip is sweet roasted malt, more toffee, dried dark fruit and toasted pecans. Rich and flavorful, with subtle herbal hops in the smooth complex finish.

kepano (277) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Muddy, walnut wood color, with an off-white layer of dense cream. Pungent aroma of dark dried fruits: figs and rum-soaked prunes are at the forefront. Layers of milk chocolate and licorice appear under the heavy fruitcake aroma. Caramel and maple syrup provide an unctuous sweetness to the nose. On the tongue, Korbinian is rich and balanced. Chocolate and coffee marry with sweet vanilla bean, and light spicy notes. Finishes on a slightly bitter note of roasted hazelnuts and coffee. Smooth, oily texture that hides the alcohol well. Korbinian feels like a polished stone, with edges that have been smoothed away over generations.
