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.

0,5l bottle. Pours very dark red with beige head that doesnt stick around too long. Aroma of raisin, fig and candy fruites is not very strong. Flavour is similar, raisins and dry fruit. High levels of alcohol are felt (brandy flavour). Short predominantly sweet and a bit dry aftertaste.

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.
