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%).

@ Beer tasting, Havregatan 141206. Really malty and sweet with light caramely notes, medium to full body. The finish is dry and malty. Too malty in my opinion.

Strong aroma, German malts take the main stage with chocolate and light bitterness. Dark mahogany medium bodied looks at home in a Berliner Kindl goblet. Picked up a 500 ml bottle at Whole Foods for four bucks and change.

A fantastic malty brew, worthy of it’s praise. Smells of dough and raisins. Taste is similar. A touch sweeter and more alcoholic than some, but also ridiculously smooth and with a better flavor. Very well done.

craighill (23) - GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle from supermarket. Deep ruby red, clear with beige head that disappears quickly. Strong aroma of roasted malts, some dark fruits and nuts. Taste equally malt dominated, some malt sweetness. Lingering roasted aftertaste. Hop character only in the background bitterness. A beer with plenty of character.

brianza_ale (142) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2014
50 cl. Pours a moderate diert white head, dark brown to ruby but with still a bit clear colour. Smells brown sugar, light roastiness, cereals, dried fruits, cinammon spices. Tastes caramel, all malt, toffee, hints of cocoa; nice and right level of sweetness, minimal bitter notes, just some slight final roastiness. Medium body, sticky oily texture, good and balanced carbonation. Extremely drinkable, refined; now I aslo see why it has also "dunkel in the name" (not as doppelbock as a celebrator), between the top doppelbock but not the best. Nice one!

Pretty one note, just malty, not much else.  Pours a nice deep red. Smells and tastes like malt liquor. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

peponi (454) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Aroma: roasted dark malts, alcohol, light DMS. Appearance: clear dark amber color, nice beige head. Taste: low bitterness (herbs), roasted dark malts, roasted caramel, dried fruits, alcohol, coffee substitute, semisweet, some weak honey notes. Palate: full / medium body and low carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Dopplebock with the clear profile. Can be viewed as an icon in this style.

Sehr schmackhaft mit großem Charakter. Am Ende sehr malzbetont, fast schon wie geröstet. Großes Bier! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
