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%).

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 (5147) - 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.

lello4ever (194) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
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.

0,5 l bottle. A dark red brown in the glass, nice one finger head. Choco and malt on the nose. Taste is intensive roasted mal, pleasant sweetness, little bit bready. Easy to drink, nearly hidden alcohol. Nice one.

Dark brown colour with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, hebs and roasted malts. Taste of hops, dark fruits, bananas, roasted malts. Nice malty aftertaste which is almost to strong. Overall: very good beer.

Holmen1 (3193) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 2, 2015
Flaske,kjøpt i Berlin, og delt med Ovesen på Holmens påskebrygging: vakker, dyp rubinrød med lyst beige skum. Nydelig, saftig aroma og smak - dobbelbock er en herlig stil. Tørkede frukter, karamellmalt, mørke bær noe krydder og fremfor alt en stor saftighet i en elegant kropp. Stor nytelse og drikkeglede fra første til siste dråpe (mens vi venter på at vørteren kjølner).

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 02.04.15. Dark copper. Pale, brown head. Sweet aroma, of medium dark malt and ripe berries. Excellent taste, with lots of sweet, dark malt, dried berries and nuts. Well balanced.
