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%).

On tap @ De Geuzen last winter. Dark reddish brown, creamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, laurel, liquorice. Taste is sweet, malty, laurel and liquorice as well. Became cloying towards the end, too much sugar I guess. Lots of nice flavours though.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 From bottle. Dark redish brown, hazy. Little head that quickly goes away.Malty aroma. Very malty taste, burnt caramel. Carbonated. Taste not very complex, mostly malt. Somewhat sweet. Ok I guess. I am an Ale drinker venturing out into other worlds. I still prefer ales so my rating could be biased.

Dark brown/amber body. Caramelly and grainy nose. A superb malty taste, somewhat grainy. Brilliant, one of the shortest ratings for one of the beers I wanted to try the most. I really need to get this one again.

500 mL bottle poured in my mug I got in Ueberlingen in 2003. Pours a dark amber color with a strong, off-white head that retains very well. Smell of burnt caramel, slight bit of earthy hops, and some dark fruit, most noteably some cherry. Smell still is a little weak for what I was expecting, good, but not very strong. Light toastiness in the taste. Certainly some burnt caramel is noticed as well as some slightly grainy flavors. Sweet caramel finish, that ends up being dry. Higher than medium carbonation with medium body. Very nice beer to drink, I think it may be even better when enjoyed straight from the brewery.

(Re-rate). Breakfast measure, Andechser am Dom, Munich. Interesting that I scored this beer identically on all counts bottled and back home a couple of years ago. Fruit like stewed apple, grape and fig in the aroma, joined by rust, choc, Twiglets. Dubbelish and a bit bloody. Yeasty, sweet and peppered with choc. Cherryish ruby red with a beautiful fat tan collar. Wood and yeast extract aroma underscored with herbal noble hop notes as it warms. RYE BREAD. Yeasty, nutty, slightly burnt bitterness. Slips down disturbingly well before midday. (original rate) 0.5L bottle. Deep red pour with a lasting off-white head. Powerfully fruity, sticky licorice snout with lots of heady alcohol. Silky licorice warmer with a mellowing malty softness. Raisiny, malt-loafy fruity like a (much) richer version of Pelforth brune. Rich, foody and smooth.Tragically, I had to share it.
