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: Finally, I got one to try! Caramel mahogany color, nice fizzy dispersive off-white head. Small lacing. Nose of sweet raspberry and toffee, rich caramel, abounds of fruity Maillards and yeast esters. Like a strong woman, impressively intense and feminine. The flavor is sweet, balanced, rich, note offensively bitter, some nice light cocoa and cinnamon, but lots of caramel. Finish is balanced, perfect, nice. Thanks BuckeyeBoy!

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Light brown and a pretty red when held to the light with a medium ring of bubbles. Nose-honey, butter, rum. Taste-straw, surprisingly unsweet, honey, mildly dusty, dirt, staleness, cola, wet coffee grounds, very light tannins, molasses, sweetens as it warms up, but not overly so. Very decent easy drinker with some interesting flavors.

20060812 .5l bottle shared at Mel’s Madness. I know I’ve got more notes on this beer from more recently, but this is it for now. Thinner than expected beer is fruity (raisin, dates, plum), sweet (pretzel, cookie dough) and mild. Overall good stuff in the range of world classic doppelbocks.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle, Haus der 100 Bieres, Berlin. Ruby-brown with a lasting, large 2-finger tan head - absolutely beautiful looking beer. Aroma just didn’t come through for me, and I’m not sure why. Everything seemed a bit indistinct, a little muddled: dark fruit made some appearance, sweet malts edging on caramel, nothing especially engaging however. Definite fruity character in the taste, with a nicely rounded and balanced caramel malt tone, and some slight estery spice notes as well - cinnamon, clove perhaps. Rasping aftertaste. Not overly complex, but well crafted, enjoyable. Palate was a bit watery - felt like for the flavors here, it could’ve been thickened out.
