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%).

TH28 (362) - - FEB 27, 2016
500ml btl. No apparent code date. Appearance: Deep brown and clear, with a beautiful deep ruby red and a moderate khaki head. Aroma: Strong dark fruit character of raisin, fig, and plum Taste: Rich bready, toasty maltiness with caramel and roast. Strong dark fruit flavor continues, predominantly raisin and fig. Fruit has a slightly spicy feel. Bitterness just strong enough to counter the rich malt. Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with a moderate carbonation. Alcohol strength well hidden. Finish: Toasted bread and dark fruit linger long after. Overall: Top notch Doppelbock. Complex malt character of bread, toast, caramel and a slight touch of roast. Raisin and fig fruit character stays strong on the nose and continues through the taste and finish.

gigaphone (7) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 23, 2016 does not count
Deep mahogany color, large bubbles head diminishes quickly , fizzy bubbles. Herbs, sour (just right amount of sour) dried fruits, raisin, some smoke on exhale, mouthful, semi sweet. I find this combination of gas and sour common in many German beers. Not my kind of beer, it has too heavy smell for me (hits sinuses), but for those who like malty nut brown ales, may be a real treat.

hauxe (371) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Pours brown into the bottle with a creamy head. Pleasant roasted malt and dark fruit aromas. First taste reveals a rich, full bodied beer with strong hints of roasted malt, caramel, molasses, and chocolate, with more subtle dark fruit and even vanilla undertones. The flavors deepen as you progress. Smooth and extremely well balanced. Sweet without being overly sweet, and with a light hops bitterness in the finish. Drink cool but not cold. Excellent stuff!

Echon (344) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2016
Clear mahogany body with a beige head.
Sweet caramel malt aroma with metallic notes.
Balanced moderate sweetness and bitterness. Rich, malty flavours. Bitter finish with a bit of alcohol.
Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

The smoothness and full malt character make this a very good doppelbock. The aroma is somewhat lacking, though.

unclemike (2871) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Rich, delectable and complex. The sweet malty nose and deep carmel color make this beer enjoyable even before the first sip. Well-balanced, and although there is a strong alcohol component, this brew is somehow delicate
