Weihenstephan Korbinian

What the brewers say

“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 and a dark malt aroma—reminiscent of toffee, nuts, and chocolate. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong, rich malt aroma with caramel, toast, and underlying chocolate. Dried fruits. Toasted malt aroma with hints of molasses, caramel, sweet dried fruits (prunes, dates), and sweet chocolate. Virtually no hops aroma.”

Flavor: “Rich caramel and chocolate in the flavor. Almost like a Tootsie Roll. Moderate strong sweetness up front that slowly fades into a moderately dry finish. Slight moderate bitterness and a bit of alcohol warmth help balance as well. The toasty malt flavors dry out the finish.”

Overall: “Very rich but clean and not overwhelming. Easy-drinking, roasted-malt, complex lager. Pleasant dark fruit notes. Gives the perception of a big strength beer. Nice balance and flow of flavors.”
