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%).

bottle, pours a very red amber, with a tall off white/light tan head, good lacing as it goes down. Camel malt, with a plum character aroma. Sweet malt, sour grainyness, and a suprising bitter and smoke filled finish. Wonderful finish that brings another complexity to a well balanced doppelbock. Carbonation is moderate but this full bodied beer retains a creamy mouth with a little crisp edge in the finish. No wonder its one of the best.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 19, 2009
Draught in Kloster Andechs. Pours lovely dark mahogany, with off-white head. Sumptuous aroma of malts, caramel and coffee. Well balanced complexity on the palate of everything that the aroma promises, with dark fruits besides. Reassuring mouthfeel, and overall a very decent Doppelbock.

Une bire qui manque de personnalit. Une amertume du sa couleur brune. Et une douceur allemande.

jonno (2731) - JAPAN - MAR 13, 2009
A good doppelbock. Poured very nicely with a lot of carbonation. Little on the palate but with a solid alcohol presence. A bit one dimensional for my liking but still a solid offering. Notes of dark sugar, dark fruits and caramel.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle, BB 5/09. Clear brown with a thick beige head. Nose is sour caramel and dough. Crisp and clean medium light with sharp carb and a creamy finish. Taste is burnt sugar, brown bread, nuts, plum and dry coffee. Beautifully balanced, simple, but hits all the right notes.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2009
A great doppelbock. Roasty and hugely malty and has some intriguing notes like the touch of smoke in the malts.

Really nice beer. Good body, notes of dried fruit. Sweetness and malty. A great beer to drink, when i need some ekstra.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Thanks to HannonT for this beer. Brown/copper pour with a thin light beige head. Nose of caramel, lightly toasted malts, and slight oxidation. Body was soft and pretty smooth. Decent doppelbock, but I think it was starting to turn with the oxidation.

hallinghansen (3065) - Odense SV, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle. Brown body, with a small offwhite head. This must have been a bad brew, because, the flavor was flat and boring, almost no carbonation. But i did taste some malt and straw.
