COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is it! The powerful, full-bodied, strong beer which is Andechss 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 Bavarias 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 Bavarias Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then theres 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%).

Very dark bronze color. Nice lacing head. Aroma: fruit, cherry, malt, honey, caramel. Full body, malty, chocolate. A little bitterness and sourness in the finish last for a while. Minimal carbonation.

Biroholik (1139) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Kolor: Mahoniowy, czysty jak łza.
Piana: Żłta, drobnoziarnista. Początkowo puszysta i zwarta, pęka po czasie do wstążeczki. Na ściankach szkła pozostają liczne krążki. Przy przechylaniu szkła tylko nieznacznie się odbudowuje.
Zapach: Aromat jest wybitnie słodowy. Na pierwszym planie pojawiają się ciemne owoce z ktrych najwyraźniej czuć ciemne winogrona, tudzież rodzynki. Za nimi podąża nieco suszonych fig. Dalej silna karmelowa nuta, orzechy włoskie i odrobina gorzkiej czekolady.
Smak: W smaku mnstwo melanoidowych detali. Tu przypieczona skrka chlebowa, tam tosty. Tuż obok pokazuje się karmel, orzechy, toffi, może nawet lekka śliweczka wędzona. Smak jest złożony i harmonijny. Goryczka jest umiarkowana, płsłodki finisz. Pełne ciało, gładka, kremowa tekstura, niskie nagazowanie.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
Znakomity Doppelbock. Bez wahania można go uznać za ideał stylu. Zajmuje on w tej chwili 2-gie miejsce na RateBeerze. Chciałbym jeszcze sprbować Celebrator z Ayinger, ktry jest na szczycie listy, aby mieć pełne porwnanie. Bardzo bogaty smak i aromat. Krluje slodowość, a wraz z nią wyraźne akcenty melanoidowe (przypieczona skrka, tosty), karmel, ciemne owoce (śliwki wędzone, winogrona, figi). Z tyłu pojawia się lekki czekoladowy smak. Delikatny, kremowy i bardzo smaczny lager z tradycyjnym podejściem do piwowarstwa.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Nuts, almond, wafers, vanilla, honey, bread crust, only subtle caramel. Sweetish but far from cloying, fullish though not chewy, very nutty flavour with a note of incense, lighter notes of cocoa and a light, herbal bitterness. Awesome beer, worthy of its praise.

Heidelbeer (20) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2016
Amber coloured almost dense head that doesnt stay long. Strong malty caramelish aroma with hints of cinnamon. When drunk, my first thought was Im drinking maltbeer for kids. A simple and straight forward beer that Ive expected more. The finish average, carbonation is soft. Maybe I got a bad bottle, I will try it another time again. But by now I recommend Ayinger Celebrator

On tap at the brewery. Clear mahogany color with tan head. Aroma has dark, toasted malts and some brown sugar. Taste starts sweet and malty with a burnt sugar note. Finish has some roasty bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A really well made beer, tasty and easy to drink.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2016 Aus der Flasche getrunken (Getrnkemarkt Dessau). Schnes Dunkelbraun im Glas mit feinporiger Schaumdecke. Volle Malzaromen, leider sind Lakritznoten durchschmeckend.

Quelle mousse et que dire du liquide. Il est dun beau marron-cuivr. Au nez, des effluves de caramel, de raisins secs, de grain et dherbes fraches.. Le plaisir est immdiat en bouche. La texture est veloute, les saveurs sont sucres; par du miel et/ou du caramel, fruites, par des fruits schs; raisins et figues, dune belle faon subtile. On sent lexprience derrire cette bire. Cest plaisant de boire une bire dun style original. (M.A. 01.12.16) (2004-181016)

damwal (22) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Z kranu w Andechser am Dom. Klarowne, bardzo dobrze się prezentujące, z drobną pianą pomimo wysokiej mocy. W smaku mega słodowe, troche palone - bardzo przyjemne. Gładkie w odczuciu, pijalne.
