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%).

[bottle] Pours a dark brown color, very clear, with a dense and clingy off-white foam. Impressive. Dense malt aromas, some sugary sweetness. Flavors are very malty, chocolate and fruity esters. Plum, raisin and dark fruit. Very complex. Finishes with some lingering malt character and a good spicy, herbal bitterness. Outstanding.

A bit heavy on the candied sugar in the aroma, but otherwise a great well balanced Dopplebock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin mørk rødbrun farge med et beige skum, skummet holdt bra. Deilig aroma av røstet malt, røde bær, karamell og treverk. Smaken følger aroma, men her får jeg toner av cherry og brunt sukker i tilegg.

ryecatcher (773) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a transparent mahogany brown, big off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is malt forward, caramel, dates, prunes, raisins, molasses. Mouth is medium bodied, light malty sweetness, caramel, toasted pumpernickel bread, raisins and dates. A somewhat thin finisher though. Otherwise very nice. Prost!
