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%).

I drunk this beer more than 50 times and i never get bored. Brown colour with one finger of tanned head. Malts, caramel, bread, toffee in nose. Cara malts, toffee and some alcohol in mouth. If you have the choice, try it. One of the best doppelbocks

UrbanCaveman (146) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2015
12 oz bottle, poured into a tankard at ~40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a clear amber-brown, and forms a thick, fluffy light tan head with excellent retention. Lacing is somewhat insane. Smell: Sticky buns with raisins throughout, fresh from the oven and just finished glazing, all bread and sweetness and fruit. Taste: Sweetness is the primary characteristic, and it is present in abundance, from the first moments of the sip all the way to the finish. The sweetness is definitely bready as well, alongside a sort of coppery, metallic twang. There’s a not insignificant amount of noble hops in this beer, which lends a slightly medicinal taste to the sweetness, and an oddly bitter finish and aftertaste for a doppelbock. I get no fruit or nut aspects from the flavor, possibly due to the hop factor. Mouthfeel: This beer doesn’t exactly deliver the sort of thick, creamy, sticky mouthfeel I associate with a doppelbock, instead drinking more like a bock. Overall: Being perfectly honest, this isn’t my favorite doppelbock, nor do I classify it in the same tier as Korbinian and Celebrator. This drinks more like a maibock, and it’d be a pretty darned good one.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a beautiful creamy beige head with little lace. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, light dark fruits, light alcohol. Taste is similar with burnt sugar notes, caramel, roastiness, some coffee and some bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, medium body, low carbonation.

McSherman (261) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
Schöne Farbe, sehr dunkles rot, erinnert an Kirschsaft. Aroma: süß, malzig, brotig, getrocknete Früchte. Im Geschmack zeigen sich die gleichen Aromen. Wenig Hopfen. Gut!

On tap at Hot Spot. Pours a dark brown color without much head. Malty, but a little too sweet for my preference. Some toffee.

Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel has a fairly thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, dark-brown, bubbly appearance, with low-to-moderate lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, sweet, syrupy, brown bread crust, raisin, spiced bread, raisin bread, and brown sugar. Taste is of the same elements, riding alongside moderate hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel finishes somewhat crisp, surprisingly drinkable, and exquisite. RJT

Deep burgundy with a thin dissipating head. Sweet caramel and dark fruits for the aroma. Taste of raisins, molasses, woody and earthy. Very sweet and malty. Thin and oily palate with fairly lively carbonation.

onceblind (5178) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours a clear dark nutty brown with a fast fading off tan head. Dark malty and sweet nose with a bit of toasted bread. Bready flavor with a dry dusty malty finish with a kiss of molasses and nutty dark malts. Pretty generic and a touch too sweet.

Great body and flavor. Smells like toffee, great head. Great mouthfeel and the taste of chocolate lingers. You’d never know this is a 7% beer. Really, really solid doppelbock.

Ottima doppelbock scura. Colore marrone intenso con vena rossastra e schiuma discretamente persistente, al naso malto tostato e punte di cioccolato. E’ molto beverina, il sapore è dominato dal malto tostato, note di caramello, cioccolato, forse bacche. Equilibrata però, non sono sapori troppo forti. Relativamente alcolica e di medio corpo. Ho visto il voto di 99 su ratebeer e in realtà un pochino mi ha sorpreso, perché per quanto mi sia piaciuta non la ritengo addirittura eccezionale.
