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%).

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[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.

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.

Elaborada mediante el procedimiento tradicional Triple Mash, esta cerveza está destinada a ser saboreaba lentamente. Su aroma deleita al bebedor: acentos suaves tostados y matices de frutos secos con caramelo. Esta cerveza de la Santa Montańa de Baviera presenta una agradable efervescencia. Y luego está su sabor inconfundible: recubrimiento bucal y aterciopelado, fuerte y aún así con mucho sabor a malta, junto a un potente y robusto cuerpo. Al mismo tiempo, se desarrolla una dulzura fácilmente reconocible, aportada por el cacao tostado.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk. Pours dark caramel brown sort of Burgundy. Off white head. Aroma is caramel heavy, toffee, fig, roasted malt. Nice. Flavor is carnal, toffee, sort of the same. Not bad. I can dig it.

cwill (59) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Pours a clear dark amber color with plenty of ruby highlights coming through when held to a light. A dense, foamy, two-finger light tan colored head quickly reduces to a thin film and collar, leaving behind small amounts of soapy lace. Rich, sweet, toasty and bready malt profiles lead the aroma upfront. Notes of toffee and caramel follow, along with raisins, plums and dark stone fruit. Taste follows suit, but encompasses far more complexity than the nose implied. Soft caramel and toffee lead above an abundance of warm toasted malts, before transitioning to a complex amalgamation of dark fruits with a raisin-like sweetness leading the way; plums, figs, prunes and cherry are all detectible, along with hints of brown sugar and molasses. Towards the finish, slightly darker roast characters combine to bring traces of dark chocolate, cocoa and spice. The mouth feel is a medium to full body and moderate carbonation give a soft, smooth and creamy feel. Traces of roasted bitterness and dark chocolate linger on the finish. Overall this is a fantastic beer. The best Doppelbock I have tasted to date. Highly Recommended.

17Beer (195) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Scents of bread, malt, yeast and pumpernickel.Pours deep dark brown with a tan head of small bubbles big but fast dissipating. Balanced bread tastes with some sweet undertones and a toasty lightly sour finish. Medium carbonation with an oily mouthfeel and some fizziness. Balanced and rich. I like it.

ALIBALI (418) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2016
Ein zutiefst malzsüßer Vollstrecker. Aromen von Dörrobst, Beeren und natürlich MALZ machen Lust aufs erste Schlückchen. Der Trunk begeistert dann ebenfalls dezent säuerlich, unaufdringlich waldhonigsüß und fast ein wenig verführerisch. Man denkt sogar an Barley Wine :) !!!! So muss ein dunkles Doppelbockbier munden, spritzig & voller "Emotionen". 0,3/3,50. Bei der KIELER WOCHE 2016, vom Fass, am ANDECHS Stand.

adster (645) - HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2016
Mély árnyalatú, réz színű, rubinos reflexeket megcsillantó főzet, az első pár szippantás valósággal szivárványos illatok palettáját tárja elénk, melyek között a gumicukor, málna és karamell képe is kirajzolódni látszik. Egy pár pillanattal később már sötétül a szerkezet, leginkább az égetett cukros, kávés, diós elemek érvényesülnek. Íze már ennek alapján képeződik le, kellően komplexek és izgalmasak a kortyok, melyek kezdetben gyümölcsösek, majd sötétbe hajlóak, pörkölt színezetbe fordulók, eközben kellően krémesek és teltek, utóíze alapján azonban egy árnyalattal vaskosabb malátás támogatást talán még elbírnának.

Fules (634) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 15, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, vörösbe hajló, sötétbarna szín. Karamelles, pörkölt malátás illat. Enyhén kesernyés, édeskés karamelles, csokis ízvilág. Testes, közepesen szénsavas, jól egybesimuló ízekkel. Finom, jól csúszó sör.

Reid (2274) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2016
500ml bottle purchased from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem Oregon $3.99 Dark amber/ brown colored body with a nice sized thick and frothy cream colored head. Unlike most dopplebocks the aroma of this is mainly wheat, vanilla and hazelnuts. Nice Taste similar to the aroma but more of the dark fruit and over ripe bananas , raisins and a bit of licorice appear..many flavors as it heats. Delicious smooth and silky mouth feel. An excellent traditional dopplebock.
