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.

VastActiv (6862) - Oulu/Helsinki, - NOV 30, 2012
Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. Colour is reddish copper with tiny white head. Aromas and flavours are plums, raisins and sweet malts. Strange, quite belgish without Belgian yeast.

Such a great beer that I actually enjoyed the otherwise uncouth act of burping this beer up as a second opportunity to enjoy it!

Jabic (529) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Ar: Fairly clean; some raisins and toast; a very refined, dried-flower aroma. Ap: Deep chestnut red; clear; medium light tan head with moderate-low retention, leaves a motley collection of tiny, small, and medium bubbles. T: Deep, rich maltiness with a very clean background alcohol impression; clean toast and raisins; silky, cake-like sweetness; relatively low but firm bitterness. P: Medium body with very high carbonation, lending a mostly creamy texture; finish is medium-dry. O: Rich and full, a big doppelbock with a lot of flavor; the heat is a bit too noticeable at times; good, clean yeast profile, really letting the malt and body shine.

A full bodied flavourful beer, sweet malt, plum hint of chocolate. Nice tingle on the tounge from the carbonation

500ml bottle pours cola brown with deep red tones and a thin off-white head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel malt, dark fruits and bourbon. Flavours of roast malt, brown sugar, cola, molasses and herbal characters. Skilful balance of sweetness, saltiness and bitterness.

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.
