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%).

Coppery-brown crystalline color. Powerful aroma, with a big fruity inclination of plums and raisins. Raisins are predominant in the taste, and also some nuts, and some roasted chocalate notes.

Poured with a small creamy head. Smell is stronger than the taste: raisin, slight syrup, banana, spice and fig. A heavy Weiss beer almost bock style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hanuta06 (320) - Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Allendörfer Aroma: light caramel malt. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-orange/light-brown body. Taste: heavily sweet, burned caramel malt and date-like initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: this is probably an excellent doppelbock, but this style of beer is too sweet for my taste.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of raisin and light chocolate with a dark bread and dark grain backbone. Flavor has a nice cocoa note with some dark grains and a hint of toffee underlying.

tom10101 (2700) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle (500 ml). Dark brown with reddish reflects, medium diminishing beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, breadied malt, light roasted notes, berries, some smoke and raisins. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel, breadied malt, berries, smoked notes, roasted malt, raisins and a light alcohol warming finish. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Superb balance. There’s a ton of malt/caramel in there, but it’s still drinkable. That’s impressive. Quite tasty.
