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%).

50cl bottle. Pours chestnut brown with a red hue, gentle bubbles and a nicely proportioned head. This disappears after a while, so not quite perfect, but very good. The nose has fruit cake, some sweet spice. The taste has more fruit cake with molasses, dried fruit and a touch of sweet spices. The palate is medium to full bodied with a big mouthfeel and a reasonable finish that makes you want to take another drink. Overall, a big tasty beer.

mathieuc (3318) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
Pours a deep deep brown/maroonnwith a medium beige head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of caramel, alcohol and some caramelized/slightly burnt sugars. Taste is moderately sweet and a lightly bitter with more caramel, a light roastiness and light alcohol. Not boozy but slightly warming. Body is medium-full and carbonation moderate. Long lasting sweet finish. A fine doppelbock that is exactly on style. Nice!

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2016
(Bouteille provenant de Bottlecraft): Une Doppelbock assez croustillante et moyennement sucrée. Pommes cuites, baies et fèves de cacao avec une finale assez rôtie.

ttoadee (1286) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Deep bronze pour, 2 fingers of light tan head. Nose is dark malt. More sweet than bitter. Middle is chocolate malt, stone fruit, some molasses; bready and delicious. Finish is smooth, with the hops drying things just a bit.

No information in detail about the malts, hops or drinktemperature on the bottle but a very good beer. Clear red-brown beer with a nice light cappuccino head, very roasty and good, fizzy, smell is roasty, for a German Doppelbock Dunkel very, very good and one of the best, full body, (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 24.02.17)

Towey1989 (1804) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Keg at The GBBF, London. A clear brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of bready malt, prune, some caramel, maybe dates, slight liquorice and subtle dark chocolate. Taste of bready malt, prune, other dried fruits, some dark chocolate, slight caramel, a little liquorice, maybe vanilla and subtle brown sugar. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A long, warming, pruney, chocolate bitterness in the finish. Not a fan of prunes which are dominant in this but I warmed to the deep, flavourful taste of this beer. Nice traditional doppelbock flavours like chocolate and caramel. Really good.

Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel : Fawn big schaumkrone, dark brown clear body. Fruity aroma, prunes, plums, complete fruitiness, with malted candies and roasted honey malts. Malty taste, plums, almond, prunes, vanilla, red apple, sweet liquorice - leading to a pruney malty good finish. Good body, soft fizz. Overall a really good, umcomplicated double-bock. [Btl 50cl BB01118 at Birreira Andorra...of all places on earth...hehe]
