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%).

Bottel@home. Clear dark mahogany color. Pours with small dissapering white head. Aroma of malt. and alcohol. Taste is sweet, malty and some notes of peach. Nice carbonation, with creamy mouthfeel. Ends with a nice warming feeling from the alcohol

From the 500 ml. bottle stamped L-3004. Deep dark amber brown pour with a modest off-white head. The aroma is sweet with malt and molasses. Maybe a little chocolate but more malts and molasses. Low hop profile. Bold body. A very rich and sweet tasting beer with mild bitterness to finish. Very good indeed.

vyvvy (5381) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma has rich cream, toffee, caramel, smooth toasty malt and milk chocolate. It has a medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste has lots of toffee, thick bread, caramel, crackers and some woodiness. The finish is drier and more of an earthy rustic thing than most of the style. Really well done.

heavy (2405) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2016
May. ’15. On tap at Andechser am Dom. It poured clear copper body with medium sized head. Aroma contained alcohol, caramel, some sweet dried fruit but also roasted notes. Flavor was more bitter at first, roasted sugar and cocoa with a sticky sweet doppelbock (caramel, sugar, dry fruits etc) counterpart coming on. Then, light herbal hops were more pronounced in the aftertaste, rounding it nicely without too sticky impression. Full in body and cloying anyway. Quite pleasant and relatively complex, although might have expected more to be honest.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
