This is it! The powerful, full-bodied, strong beer which is Andechs’s trademark. Brewed in the traditional Triple Mash procedure and available throughout the year, not just during the "Starkbierzeit"!

When the evening passes into dusk and the day draws to a close, time goes a little slower. Just the right time for a glass of Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel. Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel – mouthcoating, velvety, strong This world famous bock from Bavaria’s Holy Mountain is not meant to be rushed, but savoured slowly. As solid as a rock, Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel presides over the evening meal with a colour reminiscent of dark copper with nuances of fiery red. Its clear gleaming look harmonises with its firm, fine pored head. Also the aroma delights the connoisseur: soft roasted accents and a nuance of dried fruit carrying a vein of caramel. This Doppelbock Dunkel from Bavaria’s Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then there’s the unmistakable flavour: mouthcoating and velvety, strong and yet pleasantly malty – a powerful, robust body. At the same time, it develops an easily recognisable sweetness, embraced in roasted cocoa and a light, bitter hoppiness. Concluding with a powerful punch, this Doppelbock departs with a lingering aftertaste of quality plain chocolate. A strong Doppelbock that embodies the centuries old Benedictine brewing tradition, sip by delicious sip (original extract: 18.5%, abv: over 7.1%).

Bottle at home. Pours a clear, deep reddish brown colour with a medium, beige, creamy head. Malty aroma of nuts, rye bread, cooked vegetables, wood and some leather and chocolate. Sweet flavour with more chocolate, wood, dried fruit and leather. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A malty beer, balanced but I’m a bit disappointed.

Pours a nice ruby/brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma has nice dark and candied fruits. Flavor follows suit and adds layers of earthy hops and dry leaves...tasty. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and earthy / dark fruity.

This one came out of left field when I was looking for a new German beer to try a few days ago... Definitely a dopplebock that Ill be revisiting often, as long as they keep it in stock at the SuperStore. Love looking for any subtle differences between the German "Rhineheitsgebot" limited-ingredients-used beers. I Also love anything malty and Scotch ale-esque, and this sure fits!
