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%).

nayoro (9) - - AUG 7, 2020 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2020 Pours and looks like a Coke. Very quickly dissipating head. Light body, slips down extremely easily. Figgy sweetness, malty, kirsch cherry alcohol juiciness. An elegant easy-drinker. I’d never turn this down but would choose a Trappist ale over it for deeper body and less pronounced sweetness.

Avetixz (138) - GERMANY - JUL 28, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2020 Aroma of liquorice, dark fruit, cherry, grapes, chocolate and roasted malt. Pours semitransparent black liquid with a short head that disappear quickly. Medium bitterness and medium sweetness, flavour notes of coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, dark fruit, plum, raisins and a hint of alcohol, overall the flavour is rather subtle. Light body with an oily texture, little carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2020 Puissante torréfiée...Intéressante mais mon petit palet a encore un peu de chemin à faire pour apprécier réellement.

PowY (3097) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 13, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2020 10.06.2020: 500 ml bottle at home, 7.1% ABV, bb. 08.10.2020, bought at Drinks of the World, Bern. Pours a clear very dark copper with a beige head. The aroma is malty - toasted malt, toffee, dried fruits, some raisins, rye bread, some honey, some dark fruits. Medium to medium-full body with a soft to average carbonation, a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness - well balanced. The flavor is again malty with raisins, dried fruits, prunes, caramel, brown sugar, toasted notes, toasted bread, some honey and a very light balancing hop presence. Finises with a light residual sweetness and a very light earthy hop bitterness. Overall a well balanced Bock; malty but not too sweet with pleasant malt flavors and a surprisingly high drinkability. A very good Doppelbock! Aroma: 7 Appearance: 4 Taste: 7 Palate: 4 Overall: 15

blariacum (678) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2020 Fles. Zoet van geur en smaak. Aroma ook cichorei. Mout. Scherpe bijsmaak. Zoet stout. Wrang droog, aangenaam. Koolzuur prikkelt de neus in smal weizenglas. Redelijk bitter en meer nasmaak dan menig dobbelbock. Schuim snel weg.

emesc (242) - - APR 14, 2020
UPDATED: APR 14, 2020 Donker roodbruin bier met voldoende koolzuur. Geur mout, karamel, gist. Smaak mout, karamel, hooi. Vol beetje droog mondgevoel. Nasmaak gebrande mout, karamel, beetje hop bitter, zoet. Volle echte mout smaak.

Peter_L (1484) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2020
UPDATED: APR 5, 2020 Brun klar vätska med fingertjock skum som snabbt avklingar. Rikliga dofter av kola, karamell, farinsocker, mjuk kaka och lite fikon. Hög inledande sötma där fikonsmak lätt dansar på smaklökarna. Detta sveps bort av något som påminner om lakrits. Därefter överröstas maltsötman av en neutral beska. Lät eldig och värmande munkänsla.

Stuu666 (22231) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2020 Keg at salthorse. Pours deep reddish, nose is caramel, berries, toffee, malty, taste is similar, sweet.

flelau (99) - - FEB 1, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2020 Rød mørk øl med groft skum, der hurtigt forsvinder. Duft af karamel. Smag af karamel, med en let og fin bitterhed, der lægger sig fint på ganen og en god fylde. En virkelig god øl.
