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!

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.

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.

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.
