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%).

BeerViking (4617) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 500cl bottle, pours a deep red with a large beige head. Lots of malt and dried fruit - dates, raisins - on the nose. Roasted malt balanced by a sweetness and alcohol, with hints of mocha and dry grass. Dangerously drinkable.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2008
500mL bottle. Pours a clear chestnut color, capped with a fairly large khaki head. Enticing aroma; roasted malt, grain and hay take the forefront, and are nicely complimented by dark chocolate, molasses, and mild hops. Grain and roasted malt are the dominant flavors, with alcohol, chocolate cake, and dark fruits rounding things out and adding complexity. Fairly long finish, with chocolate and malt lingering on the palate. Very drinkable. The best doppelbock I’ve ever tasted. World Class.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 30, 2008
Another fantastic beer from the cellar of the abbey of Andechs...Clear dark brown body with a large, foamy and beige head. Spicy, fruity and sweet caramel aroma with roasted grains, coffee and toffee, chocolate. Smooth and powerful mouthfeel, thick body with fruity tastes, sweet chocolate and candy flavor with a strong but well balanced and well hidden alcohol. Every taste hormonize with each others. Doppelbock No.1!

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle poured into a large Pilsener Glass brought forth a large of white head that lasted a while .The body of this brew was crystal clear and dark brown with some ruby highlights in color. This thing is pretty it looks better than a touched up print add. This is a nice light aroma, not what I expected from a dark brew. Very subtle bread and sweetness with an almost undetectable roasted malts note in the end. This is what a doppelbock should be, yes I have found the standard bearer. This is sweet and malty but at the same time earthy so as to keep the sweetness in check. I can’t find any alcohol present in the flavors. Smooth, creamy and rich comes to mind when trying to describe what I feel in my mouth I am already sad seeing this on drain from my glass, if I make it to Germany this will be my beer of choice I just have to end this review with, Prosit!

[bottle] Toasty and sherry-like aroma with slight notes of coffee, smoke, and chocolate. Clear auburn with a thin beige cover and ring. Grainy pumpernickel flavour with a little banana, some nuts, dried fruit, and liquorice notes. Sweet and with some perceptible hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting dark malt bitterness.
