COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 thanks to Papsoe. I have been wanting to try this one for a while. Aromas of caramel and sweet malts. Flavor was Smores and sweetness. Sweet malt flavor. Not much alcohol flavor. Pretty yummy.

Served by svigerfar. I usually dont really like doppelbock due to the alchohol/heavy sweetness blend but this one was good to me. The sweetness was there, but in form of raisin and berries along with the usual caramel. Alchohol is quite subued and the bitterness is well placed, again its bitter berries and caramel/malty sweetness.

Bottle 50cl. Mahagony brown in colour, massive brown foam, disappears after few minutes. A perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. Very massive body, very grainy because ofe the triple mash procedure. Perfect, this is the reference for all other doppelbocks.

TrefwoordPunk (943) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a reddish brown with a small white head and a thin sweet aroma. The flavor is sweet, but sweet in a good way, I can taste candy sugar, some caramel, prunes, raisins, toffee, sweet malts, warming alcohol. No bitterness at all, but still a very good beer

KnutAlbert (6665) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2008
0,5 l bottle from Munich airport. Seems like their border between bock and doppelbock is at 7.0%. Lowely glow. Liquorice, candy sugar, burned sugar. A little sourness. Well balanced, warming. A true winter beer.

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 - I’m sorry...I’m just not digging it at all. Just way, way too grassy in aroma, flavor, what have you. Tastes as grassy as any pils I’ve had. Sweetness is way subdued. I don’t 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.
