COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is it! The powerful, full-bodied, strong beer which is Andechsís 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 Ė mouthcoating, velvety, strong This world famous bock from Bavariaís 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 Bavariaís Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then thereís the unmistakable flavour: mouthcoating and velvety, strong and yet pleasantly malty Ė 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%).

limalimamoli (52) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Aroma fresh rich maltiness, the monks in Munich would have been proud, strong toasty melanoidins and bread crusts, ruby to garnet in color very clear, lage like in flavor character. Flavor of rich munich and vienna malt no burnt roast or acid burn flavor at all. Nice smoothness and a slight sweet character from the absence of hops. Clean lager like character.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Many thanks to saarlander for trading me this gem! Pours a ruby red with a creamy tan head. Smells of nuts, fruit, chocolate and coffee. Taste is of nuts, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and lots of fruity hints. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Finish is sweet and chocolatey.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
Brown body with a red shine and a brown-golden edge, beige head leaving laces; Very balanced, pleasant nose, not as big as expected, very soft brown malty aromas, backed by brown sugar and a very little fruity freshness; The body has a soft, but really velvety texture, it is a bit too thin, only has a very little sparkle and is a very little bitter; It finishes quite long and changing, with more aroma then found in the nose, again mostly soft and malty. This is actually the beer from Andechser that meet my expectations the least.

Finn (4710) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle 0,5l at The St Albans Beer Festival 29 Sep 06. Dark brown coloured. A huge tanned lasting head. Very good looking. Aroma of sweet malt. A well rounded sweet flavour where malt dominates. Bitter-sweet aftertaste - that lasts. Would probably be perfect as a stand alone dessert.

Rune (9239) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2006
500ml bottel (bb. 21.03.07) from the foreign beer list at The St Albans BF. Solid off-white foam over a clear mahogany body. Dark malty to the nose. Malty base also in flavour - sweet and roasted supported by traces of dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Quite well made (29.09.2006).

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle thanks to Papsoe: Mahogany in color with a medium tan head, that didnít last all that long, but left some nice lacing. Aroma, roasted malts, dark fruits, a bit of yeast, a little nutty. Flavor, lots of malts, sweet and nutty, toffee, caramel, a hint of fruits. Just a bit of warming to it, but it might be enhanced by the nice fall breeze right now.

rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2006
Pale brown colour with a dense, rocky, pale ttan head; bread, apple, date and malt aroma; sweet taste with toffee, fruit and ginger aromas; bitterish finish with toffee, caraamel, raisin and ginger aromas. Quite nice sweet malt flavours but at this strength I would have expected a little more complexity. Iíve had a lot better Doppelbocks than this. Iím amazed itís rated so highly. How many German Doppelbocks are available in the USA - just this and Ayinger Celebrator? Thatís the only way I can explain their high ratings. Tasted 19.10.2006

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Now thereís a doppelbock of note. Old beer buddy, SubstanceT, is a dopplebock man and hasnít seemed to have sampled this. Do so, my friend. Chestnut brown under a small and fleeting head. Big malt aroma, nutty and slightly sweet, some fruitiness. Only medium bodied but the flavor is full and rich. An excellent doppelbock.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2006
On tap at Gollem. Dark brown coloured. This is a very interesting beer, reminded me a bit of Guinness. It has a tall head, with a prickly and bitter taste. Very syrupy. Alcohol very noticeable-lethal, even.
