Weihenstephaner Korbinian Doppelbock

Weihenstephaner Brewery is in Freising, Germany and is the world's oldest brewery.

This 7.4% ABV beer pours dark brown, essentially opaque, with a slight translucence around the edges that shows some dark ruby red.  There is a half inch of thick light brown foam.  The aroma is strong caramel, some raisin/prune, and a slight hint of tobacco.  The taste is somewhat sweet, but not cloying, with dark roasted malt predominating, from caramel to a light coffee finish.
