European beers are very different to the tongue of an American. We are all about our malts and hops, so much so that we forget about all the other wonderful ingredients and tastes that can make a beer.
Bottle 500 ml. Bronze-ruby color, slightly yellowish color foam. Aroma: very malty, dried fruit, caramel, bread. Malt taste, caramel, wine, raisins, sweet, dried fruits. fantti (1017) - FINLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin tummanruskeana ja "kirkkaana", noin kahden sormen paksuisella kuohkealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu tarjoaa makeaa limppuisuutta, paahdettua sokeria, ruisleipää, marsipaania ja siirappia. Maussa makeutta on huomattavasti vähemmän,nyt vahvimpana on limppuinen ja rukiinen leipäisyys, sokerisuus tulee sen jälkeen ja lopussa tuntuu marsipaania ja siirappisuutta, muttei niin makeana kuin tuoksussa. Suklaatakin on ihan lopussa hieman. Suutuntuma on makeahko ja suht täyteläinen, humalakin puraisee hieman. Makean puoleinen doppelbock, onneksi maku ei ole ihan yhtä äitelä kuin tuoksu, mutta jo muutaman hörpyn jälkeen tuntuu, että pullon tyhjentäminen voi olla urakka.. davedrinkinbeer (16) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2017
This is one of the best doppelbocks ever made. A very well balanced beer, mostly chocolate, toffee, and fruits are tasted. Mouthful is easy to drink and is refreshing. DWestrick (758) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2017
bottle. surprised I hadn’t had this before in my doppelbock days. very good beer smroush (281) - Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Aromas are very malty - a mix of several different aromas though all of them individually quite mild - bread, dried plums, roasted coffee, toffee. Very little hop presence.
Color is a somewhat dark reddish brown. Large tan head.
Mild to moderate sweetness; low level of bitterness.
Medium bodied; average carbonation; slightly high alcohol level is not too apparent; finish is medium to long, sweet and malty.
Overall it’s not bad - there are a fairly wide variety of aromas. However they are all very mild and they blend together in a bit of a muddled way.

This one pours a real nice thick black with a medium head and aromatic notes of coffee, toffee, cocoa. The taste is smooth, malty and round with a lot of velvety chocolate flavor hanging with a little coffee bean and smoke. Great stuff. Good for making pickles in anticipation of Pickleas Cage XX: A 20th Anniversary Cage-abration while listening to thee best show, too. tennisjoel (1460) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Typical doppelbock aroma and flavor of nuts, toffee, molasses, and a little touch of iced tea. Clear brown in color. I’ve never been a huge fan of the doppelbock style, but this is a pretty good effort overall. Quite drinkable and clean palate. mviljamaa (176) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Pours with an attractive thin light brown foam. Color is cloudy Coca-Cola. Quite fresh aroma has mämmi and faint dried plum, raisins and dates. Some cooked flour. Palate is well balanced, although quite yeasty and floury. Taste is bready and rich in dark malts. The finish has a long lasting bitternerness and dryness. Quite interesting. I’ve known Weihenstephaner only from their wheat beers, but this displays that the brewery is versed in other beer styles as well. The Korbinian retains qualities familiar from Weihenstephaner’s wheat beers (like smoothness and elegant taste and aroma), but does in a different style. I find that the Korbinian is not that enjoyable (even if it’s a good beer) on its own, but I imagine that it would be amazing when paired with the proper foods. swisscaesar (1) - - MAY 21, 2017 does not count
Such a great beer that I actually enjoyed the otherwise uncouth act of burping this beer up as a second opportunity to enjoy it!
