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%).

A good doppelbock. At the beginning a bit tasteless. But the taste grows and at last is almost delicious.

Yes this is a good beer. Aroma hit me when i opened the bottle of coffee, but thankfully this faded away, moving onto malt sweet notes, mainly caramel, however in a better than normal way. Taste is excellent everythign good about a dunkel, lightly burnt bittering malts with a great sweetness, backed with a slight warming from the alcohol. Such an excellent brew that i would love to try again.

Damn! What a gorgeous brew!Tan two fingered head that lives long and large. Lace is, well, very lacey and sticky. All this atop a lovely clear brown body accented by a deep ruby red glow. Nose of malt, freshly milled grains, bread thats lightly toasted, very nice indeed. Body is medium, soft textured, loving on yer tongue. Lightly sweet malts are grainy with notes of dark fruits, chocolate, caramel and light toffee notes, a malt lovers dream! Finish is lightly sweet, caramelly. A well rounded representation. I,ve looked forward to sampling this brew since i,ve been on RB. It has proven itself to me! Thanks go out to Springslicker for this one! Thanks Jay!!

Beautiful deep garnet in color, sweet malts and an almost angel food cake nose. Rich and mouth filling, a maltyness that is long lingering and sweet with a nice hop balance.

On tap at the Kloster in a 1L stein. Deep brown reddish color. Thick mouth feel with a malty body that has many different flavors in it. Towards the end of liter you start tasting more boozy flavors that warm you on a cold late november Bavarian day.
