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%).

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 500ml courtesy of Don. Thanks! Tulip.A: Plum and brown with a quarter inch lasting head. Decent legs.N: Clove, brown sugar, malt, soy sauce, prune. Has a deep appreciable sweetness that never ventures to cloying.T: Complex. Brown sugar, some earthy hop bitterness. A hint of smokiness and some soy sauce, but not as a flaw. Incredibly balanced. Clove again. Cola. Breadiness like a dark rye loaf.M: Rich and full. Very clean.O: A rewarding beer. A veritable loaf of bread in a glass. Extremely glad t have tried this, and a beer I will revisit whenever I get the chance.

W aromacie ciemny chleb, zboża, skórka chlebowa, czerwone owoce. W wyglądzie ciemna czerwień wpadająca w brąz, niezła kremowa piana. W smaku rodzynki, figi, kandyzowane owoce, nuty melanoidynowe, czerwone owoce, nuty utlenienia, słodkie, bardzo przyjemnie. Ciało średnie, średnie wysycenie, dość aksamitna faktura. Ogólnie przyjemny koźlak o fajnym, złożonym smaku i średnim aromacie

erikaraeb (138) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Tastes of malt and toasted wheat bread. Carbonation strong at first and disappears quickly with the sip. A solid classic dunkel which doesn’t at all taste like it’s abv.

Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle. Dark mahagony/ruby/copper with an impressive head and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark malts, berries, molasses and some chocolate. Taste is malts, dark fruits, a hint of chocolate, caramell, cherries, nuts and finishing off with a subtle hoppy bitterness (floral and slightly citrussy). Beautifully balanced. Medium to strong carbonation. Full bodied and smooth. Alcohol is well hidden. I think this was the first Doppelbock I ever had and it made me fall in love with the style and the Andechs brewery.

Scipio (1039) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Pours a clear, dark reddish brown with a medium, off white head. The aroma consists of earthy malt, caramel, bread, lesser cherry and chocolate, and hints of spices. The taste is just a little sweet. This one has a good earthy backbone to it. A healthy amount of caramel is the main impression, with compliments of cherry, raisin, nuts, bread, herbal hops, and mild licorice. Everything here is pretty well balanced actually. Caramel aftertaste. Medium in body, with a chewy texture, and average in carbonation. This one goes down smooth and easy. Doppelbocks aren’t usually my favorites, but this was really good.

GTAEgeek (2183) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2017
0.5 L bottle, poured into a tulip. Lovely, clear, ruby brown color, with a medium, foamy, tan head. The aroma is light toast, toffee, brown sugar, plums, anise, and pipe tobacco. Sweet and malty, with a barely perceptible bitterness. Medium body, with a smooth, velvety texture. This is a wonderful, balanced, and easy beer.

3.6
ctipping (1908) - Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2017
500 mL bottle. Deep brown body with a small off-white head. Smells of caramel, bready malt, some dark fruit. Tastes very bready with some sweet caramel and brown malts. A touch of cola before becoming earthy and a little bitter. Medium bodied. Wanted to try this a long time ago. Glad I got to try it. While it’s good, it’s not all that remarkable.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 consumed a while ago - notes from phone: the liquid bread quality of this one isn’t particularly overbearing nor nauseating, rather sets in later for a great aftertaste drinking experience. perfect mf.

Thin head fades fast but the bubbles keep rising for quite a while. Caramel, molasses, dark fruit, light roast. Somehow not sticky.

Nikokaoja (237) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - MAY 9, 2017
9. 5. 2017, Pivopis, Ljubljana. Bottled. Subtle and toned down aroma and flavour for pretty high ABV, almost hiding that alcohol content. Served with ribs and potato chips which proved to be quite good combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (2144) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 2, 2017
Draught at Andechser am Dom, Munich.
Dark copper, clear body, with a big, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of caramel, toast, dark fruits, cocoa, dark bread, some spices.
Tastes pretty similar, very smooth and balanced.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes smooth, moderate sweet, a bit warm, a bit roasty, a bit dry, toasty, bready, a bit fruity, with some cocoa.

Tasty. Smooth and very well balanced, more on the sweet side, but with enough toasty notes and overall very rich. Lovely cocoa and dark fruit notes throughout. Not my favourite style example, but a lovely, classic one nonetheless.
