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%).

onystrom (1329) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - SEP 11, 2006
Clear dark red color with fine head. Very sweet malty and fruity flavor. A bit atrong alcohol in the finish. Don’t quite think this is the second best Doppelbock in the world!

Echon (195) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2016
Clear mahogany body with a beige head.
Sweet caramel malt aroma with metallic notes.
Balanced moderate sweetness and bitterness. Rich, malty flavours. Bitter finish with a bit of alcohol.
Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

The smoothness and full malt character make this a very good doppelbock. The aroma is somewhat lacking, though.

unclemike (2747) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Rich, delectable and complex. The sweet malty nose and deep carmel color make this beer enjoyable even before the first sip. Well-balanced, and although there is a strong alcohol component, this brew is somehow delicate

zacgillbanks (3764) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Aged for around 2 years. Dark brown-ruby coloured with a large head of white foam. It has a sweet caramel and malty flavour with chocolate and red fruity flavours followed by more sweet malt on the finish. Ok.

anstei (645) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Like a good Doppelbock should me. Malty and sweet, a bit boozy and greasy, with that indistinguishable aroma that makes Doppelbock great. Heavy and full-bodied. Delicious.

Dark mahogany, full and tasty smell. Rich and full-bodied taste, smooth feeling, only slightly bitter, malt and some caramel, dried fruits. Sweet, but not too sweet. A really good beer.
