On tap at Hot Spot. Pours a dark brown color without much head. Malty, but a little too sweet for my preference. Some toffee.

Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel has a fairly thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, dark-brown, bubbly appearance, with low-to-moderate lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, sweet, syrupy, brown bread crust, raisin, spiced bread, raisin bread, and brown sugar. Taste is of the same elements, riding alongside moderate hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel finishes somewhat crisp, surprisingly drinkable, and exquisite. RJT

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
