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%).

Saarlander sent this gem my way as part of our last trade, Thanks Aaron! aroma of roasted malts, toffee, german chocolate and rye grain. the look is outstanding with its deep chestnut brown body and a whipped, creamy tan head. this has a wonderful balance to the flavor, toffee, chocolate, rye, and a slightly dry hop finish. very smooth and slightly silky on the tongue. light carbonation which is a big plus for me. a superb beer, not only to the style, but to any style.

Sigmund (5089) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought in Germany. ABV is 7.1%. Deep chestnut colour, large and creamy light tan head. Very nice roasty aroma with notes of rye bread, caramel, hints of liquorice and chocolate. Fairly dry roasty flavour (roast malts), notes of coffee, toast and rye bread. Dry and hoppy bitter finish. An excellent doppelbock, not as smooth and sweet as some others of this style.

Bottle. Okay - everybody seems to dig this. I just went against the grain on another Andechser beer and, although this is far better, I’m still way below the average rating. Am I just drunk? Oh well...: Pours a dark brown colour with an off-white head. Sweetish and malty aroma. Fruity notes as well as notes of alcohol. Flavour is equally sweetish and malty. Overall just an average beer, in my opinion.

500ml. bottle dated 3/21/05 brought back from Germany by a friend. Brown/red color with a small tan head. Mildly sweet malty aroma with some dried fruits and nuts. Bready, malty flavor that is much drier than the aroma would have you believe. In fact the finish is bone dry. This may sound weird, but the flavor reminds me a wee bit of the beers from Westvleteren. I get that same bready, yeasty flavor. Very enjoyable.

Dark reddish brown colour with a big long-lasting tan coloured foam. Deep malty aroma of figs, blue plums, dark chocolate and black currant. Malty big flavour of figs, nuts, dark chocolate and raisin. Well masked alcohol. Long chocolately finish.

brownish orange color, lots of nuts and raisons and other dark fruits in it. i think there is some chocolate too, this was another noogfest victim.

Bottle. lucky find. Found this in a German getrankmart after reviewing the top 50 on ratebeer.com. I am glad I did. This is a real stand out of the 50 or so beers offered at the store. Many German beers have a similar taste and character, but this doppelbock is solid. Aroma of almost chocolate, decent spicy wood and orange peel in the flavor. This is a beer to share with friends, to keep on stock, and to enjoy. One of the best so far I’ve tasted in Germany.

My notes say "w..he/ ite" WTF??? Well I can read the rest of it. A reddish brown appearance. The flavor is rather sour with a red and white grape presence. I also detect some chocolate and raisins. A bit of alcohol shows in the finish. Good bier!
