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%).

17Beer (228) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Scents of bread, malt, yeast and pumpernickel.Pours deep dark brown with a tan head of small bubbles big but fast dissipating. Balanced bread tastes with some sweet undertones and a toasty lightly sour finish. Medium carbonation with an oily mouthfeel and some fizziness. Balanced and rich. I like it.

ALIBALI (790) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2016
Ein zutiefst malzsüßer Vollstrecker. Aromen von Dörrobst, Beeren und natürlich MALZ machen Lust aufs erste Schlückchen. Der Trunk begeistert dann ebenfalls dezent säuerlich, unaufdringlich waldhonigsüß und fast ein wenig verführerisch. Man denkt sogar an Barley Wine :) !!!! So muss ein dunkles Doppelbockbier munden, spritzig & voller "Emotionen". 0,3/3,50. Bei der KIELER WOCHE 2016, vom Fass, am ANDECHS Stand.

adster (685) - HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2016
Mély árnyalatú, réz színű, rubinos reflexeket megcsillantó főzet, az első pár szippantás valósággal szivárványos illatok palettáját tárja elénk, melyek között a gumicukor, málna és karamell képe is kirajzolódni látszik. Egy pár pillanattal később már sötétül a szerkezet, leginkább az égetett cukros, kávés, diós elemek érvényesülnek. Íze már ennek alapján képeződik le, kellően komplexek és izgalmasak a kortyok, melyek kezdetben gyümölcsösek, majd sötétbe hajlóak, pörkölt színezetbe fordulók, eközben kellően krémesek és teltek, utóíze alapján azonban egy árnyalattal vaskosabb malátás támogatást talán még elbírnának.

Fules (833) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 15, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, vörösbe hajló, sötétbarna szín. Karamelles, pörkölt malátás illat. Enyhén kesernyés, édeskés karamelles, csokis ízvilág. Testes, közepesen szénsavas, jól egybesimuló ízekkel. Finom, jól csúszó sör.

Reid (2339) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2016
500ml bottle purchased from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem Oregon $3.99 Dark amber/ brown colored body with a nice sized thick and frothy cream colored head. Unlike most dopplebocks the aroma of this is mainly wheat, vanilla and hazelnuts. Nice Taste similar to the aroma but more of the dark fruit and over ripe bananas , raisins and a bit of licorice appear..many flavors as it heats. Delicious smooth and silky mouth feel. An excellent traditional dopplebock.

puboflyons (3123) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2016
From the 500 ml. bottle stamped L-3004. Deep dark amber brown pour with a modest off-white head. The aroma is sweet with malt and molasses. Maybe a little chocolate but more malts and molasses. Low hop profile. Bold body. A very rich and sweet tasting beer with mild bitterness to finish. Very good indeed.

vyvvy (5893) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma has rich cream, toffee, caramel, smooth toasty malt and milk chocolate. It has a medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste has lots of toffee, thick bread, caramel, crackers and some woodiness. The finish is drier and more of an earthy rustic thing than most of the style. Really well done.
