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%).

AshtonMcCobb (3930) - Edinburgh, - MAR 11, 2012
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.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle from Capital Market. Super deep ruby in color. Nose is strong dark fruit with some underlying candy sugar. Very rich aroma. Rich roasty flavor up front with a lot of dark fruit. Very rich and malty. Some sweetness make up the background. Very smooth with lots of flavor. A slight hint of some hops in the finish. Most rich dark fruits. Very sippable.

Icedwarf (721) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2015
Zwart bier zonder schuim. Smaak is krachtig sterk, licht zoet, rook, noten, bittere chokolade, met een klein vleugje fruit, aardbei? Echt een top bier.

McWorta (995) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 20, 2015
Mahagony-chestnut-brown colour with a light tan head. Aromas of some chocolate malts, bit vanilla and nutty notes as well as hints of toast develop. Gentle carbonation with a medium slick-velvety texture and a full body. Malty, toast, nutty sweetness rules the palate, yet a light bitterness lingers on the back of the palate. Lasting alty finish.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Muy oscura, casi opaca. Espuma beige de dos dedos, bastante densa. Olor marcado a café. Sabor redondo, predominando azucar tostada y caramelo. Llena la boca, entra de maravilla y nunca se diría que tiene 7 grados. Super agradable.

chinchill (2997) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2015
From a .5L 2014 bottle. I’ve had this excellent dunkel on tap at the brewery in Andechs several times over the past few years. While the bottled version is not quite as pleasing as the fresh draft version I remember it is certainly excellent for style. The alcohol is very well hidden, there’s a rich malty backbone, and the beer has great balance.

freretoc (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la brasserie un jour de forte chaleur (et ça compte dans la note) Couleur cuivrée, peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence. Une bière avac un nez caramel. En bouche grosse attaque sur le houblon, le caramel et le fumé. Problème avec la chaleur c’est une bière qui n’allait pas à regouter !
