COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 copper-brown with a small and persistent creamy tanned head. The aroma is full of raisins, chocolate, cherries, caramel, and tofeee - overall very pleasant. Big chocolatey body - sweetish toasty malts with some of that cherry cake fluffiness. Alcohol warmth in the finish and some chocolate chalkiness. Generally soft palate and bursting with complexity. Very good. Tasted this on a train (IC 2115) from Hamburg to Düsseldorf on May 25, 2006.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2006 Brun øl købt i Tyskland. Dufte og smag følges ad og er sødlig og karamelagtig. Fint niveau af kulsyre. Skal nydes helt kold.

Bottle from Beers of Europe, 7.1% abv. Deep amber coloured, with creamy beige head, which left good lacing. Aroma is great and complex; sweet malts, banana, strawberry and lots more besides. Flavour is not disappointing after the aroma, sweet, malty, prunes, caramel and more. Smooth, moderately carbonated, medium to full bodied, with an excellent mouthfeel and a lightly bitter finish. The best doppelbock I’ve tried.

Huge thanks to Saarlander for getting this bottle for me. Been looking forward to opening this one up. Pours a very transparent, reddish brown color with a nice sized cream colored head. Leaves some nice lacing on the side of my glass as well. Very sweet aroma of caramel, dried fruit, as well as roasted malts. Quite a bit of roasty, bready flavors, as well as some dark chocolate bitterness. What really sticks out to me is how complex the flavor is, but how smooth this one is at the same time. Thanks again Aaron, this was a good one!

Clear darkish copper. Off-white soapy head. Dark roasted wheats, a bit of wheaties. Wet dog or blankets. Pretty nice. Comes out of its shell after some concetration. Thanks to Blake, I now smell black olives. I think it’s a light sweet vegetal fruity thing. Flavor is nice. It comes right up to the edge of being "big" and "powerful", but doesn’t quite get there. Which is good. Lightly roasted wheats and grains. Very good and drinkable.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Clear red-brown body, small foamy tan head. Prune, vegetal elements (cabbage, olives), and dark caramel wort. Sweet worty flavor - raisin, prune, chocolate, crystal malt with tart raisins and some smoke lingering in the finish. An interesting combo of malts in the flavor, this stuff seems kind of boring at first but the fruity aspects come out later as it warms up.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a glowing ruby with a foamy looking tan head. The aroma is strangely black olives and interestingly roasted pimentoes. Roasty vegetables. Not spoiled, simply how the malt comes off. The flavor is a sweet wort like flavor that has some light brown sugar and toasty barley. The palate is sugary, roasty.

Pour is brownish tan. Creamy head which dissapeared farily quickly. Something odd in the nose that I can’t pick out. I don’t get olives like xproudfoot did but something else. Interesting smell. Taste is very sugary. Nice.

dark copperish color w/ a thick light tan head w/ some great lacing. Aroma has a sweet aroma w/ brown sugars and some great roasted grains that really dominate. Palate is well coated lightly carbonated smooth. Flavor is very sweet very much roasty roast malt roast wheat roast barley. I really like the roastiness of it. Also a nice sweet piece but still very smooth. Some good stuff.
