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%).

DuffMan (7633) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy medium amber brown with a pillowy beige head. Terrific doughy brown bread and caramel profile, bran buds, light hop kiss, yeasty undertones. I love this style, and this one is superb.

cazort (553) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pleasantly surprised to find this on tap in the US, in Jenkintown of all places. This is only the second perfect score I’ve given to a beer ever, and that is saying a lot because I tend not to like Doppelbocks as much as many styles. This was an amazing beer. It’s also very aptly described. It has a velvety smoothness, and the aroma is beautiful and evolving. Malty, with notes of cocoa, caramel, dried fruit (date or fig?) Enjoyable to the last drop.

Vignale (2421) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2015
Flaska från Systembolaget. Coca cola-färgad, klar vätska, lågt beige skum. Smak av koncentrerat mörkt bröd, brödkryddor, farinsocker, väl integrerade smaker, sött men också väldigt fylligt med stora smaker, lätt beska balanserar också lite. Riktigt bra klassisk dubbelbock.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Ocre foncée, translucide. Bonne mousse beige qui persiste. Belle bière. Au nez grosse complexité de maltage, toastage sucré caramel, fruitée (rouges-noirs), alcool présent et très bien intégré. En bouche toastage chocolat, fruitée, alcool. Fin sèche. Très bonne bière, à relever la complexité du maltage.

Hyvin makean maltainen tuoksu. Maku alkaa hyvin makeana ja maltaisena. Ei niin syvän musta kuin doppelbockit yleensä ovat.

500 ml bottle. Pours a red/orange tinted amber color with a huge frothy light tan head. You get caramel, plums, and cherries on the nose. The flavor is this hop bitterness upfront that gets washed away by lovely caramel sweet malts. Then comes the fig and plum flavors. There’s a little roasted smoke as it finishes. It’s carbonated and creamy on the palate that finishes semi-dry with a lingering sweetness. What a delicious doppelbock.

0.5l bottle. Clear ruby body, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, figs and cloves. Taste of caramel, figs, grains, floral hops and cherry. Although it’s fruitier than an average doppelbock, I think it’s very good.
