WEIHENSTEPHANER KORBINIAN

Weihenstephaner Korbinian. I’m a big fan of Wayne and Stephanie so when I saw a beer of theirs I’d never seen before I didn’t hesitate grabbing it from the shelf.

The label features some kind of medieval religious figure which made me think it was going to be some kind of strong ale. Apparently it’s a dark Doppelbock, which is a mild 32 IBU and 7.4% ABV.

A murky, light brown colour with a head which dissipates quickly. The body and is a lot thinner than expected. Sweet, boozy chocolate aroma. It has that smooth mouthfeel you often get with high ABV beers. Initially there is a sweet booze flavour leading into a milk chocolate flavour. It's too sweet for my palate.

Not sure I’m a fan of Doppelbocks. They are too much booze and not enough IBUs.

 

6/10
