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%).

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.

The Germans sure make fine beer. No exception here. Dark with a tan head. The aroma is malty sweetness, caramel, fruit. The flavor follows with the caramel and fruit. Some molasses comes through. Complex and changing as it warms.

PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2015
0,5 l, flaske, 7,1 % ABV, BB 15/04/15, købt i Tyskland af laboko - tak! - 5. februar 2015. Kastanjebrun, rolig og klar/filtreret Dobbeltbock med 3-4 cm tyk offwhite-farvet skumtop, som efter en halv snes minutter svinder til lille kant og overflade. Ganske smukt skum. Syrlig og sødlig aroma af rosiner. Desuden karamelmalt-noter, men overordnet ikke meget fyldig og gennemtrængende aroma. Dejlig smag af ristede malt-noter. Masser af god balance mellem sødme og bitterhed og dejlig "varm" eftersmag. Let til medium sødme og medium bitterhed. Zero surt eller salt. Bittersød eftersmag af medium varighed. Vel karboneret på et niveau under medium med en olieret konsistens. Kroppen er mellem fyldig. Solid, let drikkelig og gedigen Dobbeltbock, man kan drikke en masse af.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Thanks to tderoeck for the bottle! This one has been aged about 2.5 years or so, it may be slightly different. Poured into a taster glass showing a slight head, appearance is practically the same as a light bodied red wine but dark caramel in color. The nose shows light chestnuts and a slight herbal medicinal aroma. The palate was very lightly carbonated, light-medium body, with some round sweet malts. The only way to describe the malts were that they were somewhat "mature". Difficult to imagine but less eager to please than a young beer and took it’s time to warm up on the palate.

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 27, 2015
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.
