Notes / 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.

Very dark amber look. Smells like bread, maybe some chocolate, maybe faint alcohol smell/burn. Tastes like roasted malt, bread, and chocolate. The sweet/bitter balance is good too. Has a small bite from the alcohol. The body is thick and syrupy.

This is a delicious brew that holds it's flavor well as it heats up. I like the taste of Andechs Doppelbock better but the mouth feel of this brew much better. Andachs smells better as well but this is still a delicious brew.

It's the first time I try Weihenstephaner Korbinian Doppelbock, and it is another example of Weihenstephaner's great beers.

Look: semi-clear reddish brown and a half inch off-white head

Aroma: toasted malts, dark fruits.

Taste: The flavor is toasted malts, caramel, raisin bread, some dark fruits.

Feel: It's full bodied yet easy drinking.

If you're introducing a new beer drinker to doppelbock for the first time, make certain this is what you serve them.
One of the finest examples of the style.

500-ml. bottle poured heavy into a 20-oz. mug creates a one finger rocky tan head that shrinks fast yet persists.
Dark transparent brown with a ruby-amber hue when held up to light. Fast rising bubbles around the mug.
Smells of rye bread, dried fruit and sweet roasted malt.
The taste has bread and fruit plus grainy malt at first, semi-sweet roasted malt jazzed up by the co2 in the middle, followed by hops and roasted malt bitterness.
Medium body with persisting carbonation and slight astringent alcohol.
Ale-like in mouth feel and look (exept for the rising bubbles). Nice blending of malts, not to much roasted bitterness.

Nice dark color with a very light head upon pouring from bottle, looks like flat coke. Tastes of spiced bread, dark fruit. Reminiscent of stout in flavor. This is difficult to drink quickly due to the potency of the flavor of the beer, though that’s certainly not a bad thing. Nice after dinner drink.

Chestnut body is topped with a massive off-white head. Clever how the bubbles arrange themselves, tiny at the bottom- large on top. Plum, Raisin, caramel aroma, very pleasant. Slightly sweet. Flavor follows the nose with the addition of chocolate & cola. Also some alcohol flavor. Medium body & plenty of carbonation. Overall an excellent doppelbock.

Fantastic doppelbock and likely the best out there in beer land. Rich, smooth, creamy, fruity, nutty, coffee, chocolate and yet not a sugar bomb. Forget the food, just sit back and enjoy this one. Great value. Its friggin comfort food in a bottle! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!
