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%).

Andech's Doppelbock Dunkel is crispy. It has the bocks pleasant taste of roasted malt, dark freshly baked bread and a slightly burnt malt flavor further in the taste process. Plums, dark chocolate, brown sugar and honey together form an exciting and high sweetness level and just before it breaks and gets too sweet, you get the hops in the form of a pleasant bitterness that blends nicely with the malts and draws the taste into an almost infinite lovely enjoyment. Then comes the alcohol strength and contribute to a warming experience in the mouth as well as further pulling the sweet taste forward. Yes, this bock is definitely crispy and comes right among the best of the type I have tasted so far.

Moebbels (847) - FINLAND - MAR 8, 2018
A clear cola-colored body, covered by a light brown head that settles to a thin layer on the surface. Sweet malty nose with notes of caramel, rye bread and syrup. Very sweet flavor with a low amount of bitterness. Low, bubbly carbonation with a very rich and full mouthfeel. Oddly drinkable despite the heavy palate and sweet flavor. Very nice and well made beer.

Smells of raisins and prunes and the initial flavors are in line with that. Very heavy dried fruit flavors and almost a syrupy body to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best doppelbock I've had the pleasure to taste. Thick, smooth, deep flavours of caramel and roasted malts with an ideal level of sweetness. Wonderful.

pippomix (49) - ITALY - FEB 24, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2018 Birra doppelbock tedesca realizzata interamente da monaci benedettini. Colore rosso molto scuro, abbondante schiuma non molto persistente, al naso e al palato sentori dolci di frutta candita, malto tostato e liquirizia. Buon corpo e amaro leggerissimo quasi inesistente.
