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 thanks to Bursprak. Pours a reddish, clear dark brown with a small, off white head. Aroma has lots of dark malts, surprisingly fruity, plums, jam, sweet prunes. Taste is again super malty, dark, caramel, fudge, fruit. Fairly intense, high carb and a medium oily texture.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - JAN 5, 2016
Rosso rame con riflessi carminio, schiuma sottile bianca e fine. Al naso è complessa con sentori di prugne, caffè e caramello. In bocca si percepisce il leggero amaro di luppoli nobili e il dolce dei malti caramello. Il corpo e la carbonazione sono equilibrati ed il finale è di calore alcolico netto.

500 ml bottle, no dating that I can find but L 1595 is stamped on the back label. This was a recent arrival at my local beer store so I’m assuming it’s somewhat fresh. Served in a mug, the beer pours a clear reddish/copper color with about an inch and a half light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice and malty, the brew smells like toasted malt, caramel, dried dark fruit, and some light grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with some breadiness and chocolate noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and very easy to drink. I thought this was really good, I’ll have to pick up some more soon if there’s any left at the store! $3.49 a bottle.

Blackbelly Market, 11/23/15. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Has a nice mix of dark fruit (plum, raisin) , with dark malt, caramel / toffee, and some bread. A bit of spice comes through as well. Some hop bitterness is here too, hiding in the background. Nice beer overall.

Mad_Ferret (920) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Bottle from SB, had at home. Best by date: 21-07-16.
App: Lots of pressure when the cap comes off. Clear dark nut brown with a 1 finger fizzy short lived nicotine yellowed head leaving no lace.
Aroma: Rich sweet musty malty aroma with dark christmas bread, maple syrup, nuts, chocolate and vague notes of coffee and minty salmiak. Very nice and deep aroma.
Taste: Taste is nutty and quite sweet with syrupy caramel, bread, chocolate and some spice/pepper.
Palate: Medium to bigger body, soft low carbonation, oily sticky texture.
Overall: A bit disappointed. Very nice rich aroma, but the flavour doesn’t really live up to it and the carbonation is a bit on the weak side. Nice malty beer though. Have more so it might grow on me.

Poured from the tap at Otto’s in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance is a deep reddish brown with a big tan head. the aroma is full of malt and caramel with some coffee in the back. The flavor is incredible and your mouth fills with malty greatness. A world class beer.
