COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is it! The powerful, full-bodied, strong beer which is Andechsís 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 Ė mouthcoating, velvety, strong This world famous bock from Bavariaís 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 Bavariaís Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then thereís the unmistakable flavour: mouthcoating and velvety, strong and yet pleasantly malty Ė 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%).

Ambrosia of the Gods. While living in Germany for 3 years I discovered Andechs and I have never found anything I like as well. If anyone knows of availability in the US I would love to hear about it. It has been many years and my palate might have changed, but back in the day, this was absolutely the best.

Sept. 2006 - Iím sorry...Iím just not digging it at all. Just way, way too grassy in aroma, flavor, what have you. Tastes as grassy as any pils Iíve had. Sweetness is way subdued. I donít get the hype...AT ALL, but thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing!

kappldav123 (5816) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very much foam for a doppelbock. Tastes very strong, but not as malty as exspected. Long finish, very drinkable. Really good doppelbock.

An Olaf Schellenberg beer. A huge,flavour packed number. Dark and brooding, to be treated with caution.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle. Thanks bierkoning! Pours sarsaparilla colored, crystal clear, with almost no head. Aroma is creamy, with toffee and a hint of citrus. Very warm and malty taste with just this slightest hint of bitterness. Very, very nice.

Had this at Andechser Am Dom, Weinstrasse, (near Cathedral), Munchen, Germany 24-01-08 Deep very dark ruby red coloured beer with medium off white head. Nice softness in the mouth, very silky smooth and refined beer, nice warming alcohol and sweet malts, good beer but not quite as good as I expected.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2008
Darker brown coloured beer with no carbonation and a medium off-white head. Sweeter roasted light coffee caramel aroma with a slightly alcoholic touc. Full creamy palate. Finish is full malty, roasted with a light bitter warming alcoholic touch. Very good one.
