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%).

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled (BB 10/2006). Dark amber - ruby color, small tan head. Burnt malts and sugar in the aroma, hints of coffee too. Sweetish sugary, burnt malty, light grassy hoppy. Well-balanced sweetish doppelbock - very good!

notalush (5070) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Many thanks to EDA for bringing this to the NYRBG - now THIS is a doppelbock - creamy and full-bodied, with soft carbonation - caramel and vanilla at the fore, followed by raisins and other dark, dried fruits - buttery, with balancing hops arriving late - earthy thoughout, with an almost belgian-like cellared quality - awesome.

Ughsmash (7202) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2006
0.5L Bottle, BB 8/28/06. Thanks to sk8viking for getting this across the pond! Poured a clear, fiery autumn orange with an 1/8" residual cap of beige head. Nose was somewhat airy with dark, lightly-toasted malts...lots of caramel, nutty cherry-infused sponge cake, crisp woody/leafy hoppage, mild veggie mash, and buttered toffee. The flavor sported a consistent flow of toasty malts (caramel, toffee, and nutty flavors), some fruit (cherries and mild vinous notes), and rustic hoppage... finish was long, malty, and a bit on the tacky side. The complexity was high, and this was well balanced. Great brew!

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark copper-brown with a small and persistent creamy tanned head. The aroma is full of raisins, chocolate, cherries, caramel, and tofeee - overall very pleasant. Big chocolatey body - sweetish toasty malts with some of that cherry cake fluffiness. Alcohol warmth in the finish and some chocolate chalkiness. Generally soft palate and bursting with complexity. Very good. Tasted this on a train (IC 2115) from Hamburg to Düsseldorf on May 25, 2006.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2006 Brun øl købt i Tyskland. Dufte og smag følges ad og er sødlig og karamelagtig. Fint niveau af kulsyre. Skal nydes helt kold.

macbar (30) - ITALY - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe, 7.1% abv. Deep amber coloured, with creamy beige head, which left good lacing. Aroma is great and complex; sweet malts, banana, strawberry and lots more besides. Flavour is not disappointing after the aroma, sweet, malty, prunes, caramel and more. Smooth, moderately carbonated, medium to full bodied, with an excellent mouthfeel and a lightly bitter finish. The best doppelbock I’ve tried.
