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%).

hellbilly (3247) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2009
bottle bb9/15/09 via psprings... dark walnut -woody brown color with a soft off white head. the nose is extremely malty... followed with aromas of toasted nuts, vanilla, a little smoke and some vegetal/roasted corn notes. the flavor is pretty much the same... add in some unsweetened cocoa, dark bread and a really crisp clean finish. medium bodied with a crisp refreshing mouth feel which pairs incredibly well with almost anything you would want to eat. i could easily drink this stuff every day. 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
2009-07-19. Dark brown body with a nice foamy beige head. Aroma is interesting. Something fruity with the sweet malt, sort of cherry like. Flavour is quite sweet, malty base with mild fruity overtones of fruit, and light touches of the the cherry like character from the aroma. Smooth average to medium bodied palate suits the beer despite a slight under carbonation. (3+) Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JUL 8, 2009
Dark clear brown with a vanishing beige head. The aroma is lovely malty sweet, rusks, honey, nuts, just a hint of roasted choco beans. Rich taste, sweet, balanced, with an inviting dry end. Nice bodied, right carbonated. A very nice discovery.
