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. Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head. Has a malty and bready dark fruit aroma. Sweet malty slightly bready licorice flavor with some hints of dark fruit. Sweet malty and bready finish with dark fruit in the aftertaste.

500. Thanks, TheWolf! I didn’t realize when I cracked it what a strong rater it’s been. Pours deep murky brown with thick, sudsy off-white head and intermittent webs of lace. Big orangey nose. Some nut there as well. Tingly carb and a nice creamy body for a lager, with forward flavors of mild milk chocolate, sweet brown bread, nuts, and a bit of non-tart citrus. Nice clean finish even with a bit of grain husk linger. Nicely done.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 Red amber with fine white head. Deep malty caramel, nutty & bready. Roast bitter taste. Filling medium body. Good lacings. Light warmth from alcohol - and light sweet as well (dark fruits & sugar). Bitter light sticky end! One of the best doppelbock’s iv tasted for sure. Rerating June 09. A notch down. Too much rye-bread and not as chewy as remembered. Alcohol and metal disappoints a bit.

Black and strong. Lots of flavour especially, coffee and chocolate and a worderful burned finish. Lots a sweetness in this beer. I would characterise this beer to have a medium to full body,

Thanks Sebastian for the bottle. Pours dark brown with a small creamy head. Nose is chocalate, malts, alcohol, taffy. Drinks with a full body with every drink a full mouthfeel all the way to the end. Loads of burnt malt, chocolate, caramel, alcohol. I really like this and wish I could find it here.

bottle from the always generous Duane...pour was a mahogany brown with a thick off white head, nose was fruit, fig and banana. no hint of any abv in the aroma, a nice light flavor of malt and fig, a little bit of spice. body has a bit of syrupiness in it, but the sweetness is far from cloying, and the maltiness is a nice residual flavor. this was one of my most sought after beers for a long time, and it was every bit worth the wait

Courtesy boboski. Pours a dark brown with a small white head. Big dark malts and dark fruits dominate the aroma. Just a twinge of banana is noticeable as well. Wow, great flavor. Some smoke, but mostly malts and dark fruits. Really sweet, some cinnamon. Nice finish, really well balanced, excellent aftertaste. The sugar and fruits really stand out in the end. Great brew.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Courtesy boboski. Poured a clear dark copper color with a thin white head. Caramel, spice/clove aroma is unique. Quite dry overall with caramel and spice lingering throughout the palate. Sweet, dry finish. Not as thick as some other dopplebocks, but great nonetheless.

Pretty disappointed. Thin, smoky flavor. Alcohol taste is too strong and astringent on the palate. I love Doppelbocks, and this one was disappointing.
