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%).

Marrom claro com nuances de rubi. Boa formação mas pouca estabilidade de espuma. Aroma evidente de toffee, biscoito, pão preto, tosta. Sabor condizente com os aromas. Corpo médio-baixo, amargor leve. Carbonatação leve. Aftertaste doce, levemente aquecedor.

Lilja (1897) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, rostad malt, karamell, plommon, nötter, brunt socker, russin med toner av kakao och choklad. Mycket sötma, stor kropp med tydlig beska. Rund och len med fina smakar.

Ripe plums and caramel in the nose. Appearance is clear, brownish, with red highlights, not much to the head and nothing getting left behind on the glass. Palate is delicate, a touch sticky, balanced by a certain sourness, a very nice palate. Taste is like plum juice from the my Grandmothers canned plums, quite a bit of tartness in the finish. Pretty darn good. Thanks Ron for coming up with this one for me, I’ve looked for it for years.

jamestulloch (1787) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Ruby body with a thin off-white that quickly fades. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of black cherry, toffee and prune. The flavour of treacle dominates subtle notes of cherry, candy and rye bread. Medium body with a sleek, oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. A lovely, moreish beer - a real winter warmer.
