COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Andechser Dunkel naturtrüb” is bottled without being filtered. These unfiltered, cloudy beers go back a long time in history. Up to the end of the 19th century Bavarian beers were mostly dark and with a distinct taste of malt. It was not until much later that clear, light-coloured beers came into fashion. The beer filters that were necessary for the production of the clear beers that we know and love today were not invented until the 19th century. This is the reason why our monastery beers used to be cloudy and unfiltered. Our anniversary beer – “Andechser Dunkel naturtrüb” – is following in this fine tradition.

Gutifa (135) - Bad Wurzach, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2013
Draught at Andechs Kloster. Cloudy brown/amber colour with a decent medium tanned head. Malty aroma. Cara malts, nuts and some yeast in mouth. Body is little bit watery. Nothing especial.

(draught) pours a slightly hazy ruby-amber colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of cornflakes and grain, earth, grass, light roasted malts and herbal hops. flavour is mostly the same, apple and yeast, lots of cornflakes and a grainy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Draught at Kloster Andechs. Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, roasted grain, coffee, chocolate, caramel). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Took quite a while for the aroma to really show itself, but it’s fairly nice. A bit sour and stark and thin in the mouth. Ultimately just mediocre. Still better than their Doppelbock, though, which has turned into something really disappointing.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Draught @ kloster: Rich garnet. Beefy and complex malt aromatics of blackened malt hulls, coffee, roasted nuts and burnt toffee. Fairly candyish with hints of plum, molasses, and an odd whiff of sawdust. Foamy residue of carbonation coats the palate. Somewhat off-putting, initially, with an unripe plum tartness which is soon enveloped by a blanket of soft malt. Bouncy notes of fresh plum elicit Special B notions, while remarkably deep and flavorsome coffee and smoky-roast flourish beneath. Malt continues to unfold with a roasted-nut and charcoal snappiness which marries with burnt toffee and an earthy edge of coffee. The grains, although cleanly extracted, fall short in length due to the foamy carbonation and creeping unripe-fruit acid which disperse their fullness. Ironlike/metallic twang creeps in as well, along with an unwelcome note of sweet cola which tarnishes the otherwise lustrous malt. Closes with fresh hay and ample well-textured toasty heft amid a a smoky dryness which cradles the luscious chocolate character. This is bit of a mixed bag. The malt shows tremendous promise at times, though the odd sourness (same as found in the doppelbock, though it’s more subdued here) is very difficult to overlook. The foamy mouthfeel also needs much work. Good potential here, but as is, not something I wanted to drink much of.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draught at the Kloster. Deep clear chestnut color with a very creamy and large head. The aroma is very toasty with a lot of bread crust and a touch of deep malty sweetness. The flavor is a mix of sweetness and dry toastiness with the dryness winning out in the finish. Quite drinkable overall. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Clean and very malty but not overly sweet.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2009
Draught at the Kloster as Andechser Winterbier. Hazy red brown colour. Stable rocky tan head. The flavour is nicely malty, very slightly roasted with a good note of dark bread. Quite subtle, but with enough flavour. Very süffig after the walk up the hill.

Fin (7684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2008
Had this on tap at Andechser Am Dom, Weinstrasse, (near Cathedral), Munchen, Germany 25-01-08 The waiter seemed quite surpised and chuffed that I ordered this, having shown him my good beer guide to Germany and jabbing at the beer on the page, I could ask for the bill in German and order beer but this one I felt might confuse him and when I saw that they had this on, I felt that a good old fashioned pointing it out on the page might do the trick. The beer came to me looking rather murky brown with a light beige head. Some sweet malts and a tinge of sourness was all that I could detect on the aroma. This was a very fruity beer but with some touches of chocolate lingering in there along with sweet maltiness. Really tasty and rather nice.

pivnizub (9006) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2005
On tap at "Andechser am Dom", Munich: Hazy, light-brown coloured, firm off-white head; malty nose, a tinge of vinous fruitiness; mild bitter flavour, milk-chocolatey taste; sweetish-malty finish; quite full-bodied. A well made, mild Dunkel, moreish..... This seems to be the unfiltered version of the regular Dunkel; very hard to find....
