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. Sampled at YEHA. Poured a deep red body with thin head. Aroma is rich malt. Flavor is light chocolate, rich malt. Very smooth and rich but a surprising light body.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Deep brown, old snow colored head. Earthy rustic tree root kind of smell, very much 3 ft down and dark. Some plumy caramel. Much more brisk carbonation than expected, emphasized by a touch of wheaty roast. Loamy caramel flavor, licorice, walnuts, a tannic plum skin finish. A beer both wintery and refreshing.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Draught at Andechser Restaurant/Pub in Munich. This beer changed my mind on bocks. Dark brown with nice light beige head that seems to stay around forever. Flavor is surprisingly complex, sweet and malty with notes of caramel nuts, and fruit. I went twice with the intention of trying more of their brews, but couldn’t help but order this again! Fantastic beer!

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Not too strong smelling lite malty and rich. This guy started off tingly and slightly sharp, but ended ultra smooth with a great after taste that is difficult to explain. Caramel? Maybe a little fruit even. A great brew.

Normally bock isn’t a complete favorite of mine, but I have to give in for the charm of this German strapping fellow... He has a dark brown color and a large head. His aroma is malty with notes of alcohol and the mouth feel is prickly. His flavour is very sweet with loads of roasted malt that gives notes of caramel and a hint of licorice. The alcohol is warming and the finish has a slight bitterness. The notes of roasted malt is in the taste from start to end, and leaves me with a very good overall impression of this nicely balanced bock.

I found this at the Delirium Café and I’m glad I had it when I was there because it was impossible to find in either Koln or Dusseldorf when I was there, despite its availability being listed on the Andechs website. This has a dark brown/reddish body with only a little head. There is a huge malty aroma with caramel notes that pours from the glass. The taste matches the aroma with big sweet malty flavors with caramel and some accompanying bitterness that builds at the end. As it warms up, the caramel presence increases until it is nearly the primary flavor. This is only medium bodied with good drinkability. It is a good beer but I did expect slightly better because of the reputation.

50cl bottle with a 2008/08/02 drink by date. Murky brown with a light tan head. Good smell is classic dopplebock with sweet malts, roasted nuts, black licorice, and smoke. Smooth, slick mouthfeel. Great taste of blackened malts with a black licorice and tobacco sweetness along with an earthy, musty essence. The best Bock I’ve had since the 1980’s, probably ever but i can’t remember that far back. This brew simply blows away the "the best" Dopplebocks here @ RB. Excellent. 11/30/2007
