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%).

emesc (199) - - 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 (1409) - 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.

flelau (82) - - 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.

tfontana (2552) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 24, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2020 Can pour from Colonial Spirits, Acton. Appearance is clear, ruby red with nice sparkle, ephemeral fizzy cap of light brown head with no lacing. Aroma is toffee, fig, brown sugar, toast. Taste is strong fig, caramel, toast. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium bodied with smooth texture, average, frothy carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, strong aroma and flavor with decent complexity. Worthy of its Top 50 status.

NobleSampler19 (3418) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 6, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2020 Ich weiß, dass viele Leute begeistert sind von diesem Bier sind, aber mir war es einfach zu brutal. Das Bier ist primär süß und alkoholisch, aber ohne feine Fruchtnoten wie es mancher Belgier hat. Hier fährt man wie die Iquisition mit dem Knüppel voll über die Zunge her. Es mag seine Sinnvolligkeit haben, dieses Bier in einem kalten Klostergewölbe zu trinken, um das fasten zu umgehen, aber im Vergleich mit modernen Bieren ist es einfach zu flach und brutal.

edward78 (185) - West Wickham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2020 Bottle from Beers Of Europe. Pours a clear dark mahogany/ruby colour with a thinnish beige head. Fairly lively carbonation in the glass. Aromas of roasted malts, dry dark fruits, fruit cake, caramel, treacle, syrup, cherries, berries, tobacco, leather, roasted bread and a little sugar. Taste has all the notes as the aroma. Slightly sweet but not overly so. Full bodied with a lovely smooth oily chewy mouthfeel. Much lower carbonation on the palate. Nice malty lip smacking aftertaste. Easy drinking for 7.1%, alcohol is well hidden. Very nice.

Bavarian_Beer (65) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2019 This beer smells so malty, with hints of dough that make your nose want to stay sniffing the glass. The beer poured a clear, deep amber/brown color with a thick off-white head. The flavor was very balanced with a great maltiness. The finish was great which made this beer even more outstanding. This beer is truly worth a perfect score as it is now my favorite beer for the style and one of my all time favorites. Well worth the wait and very highly recommended.

TychoJames (2761) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2019 Flaska från hopt. Mörkbrun vätska. Doft av torkad frukt, äpple, kryddor. Likande i smak. Lätt rökig ton

3.6
ophone (1138) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 8, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2019 Dark amber with a frothy beige head. Smell of soy sauce. Rich malty taste with cocoa notes. Low carbonation.
