This is best dunkel beer I have ever tasted. Great flavor that can not be forgetten. It is not overpowering on the alcohol content. The palate can not be satisfied with just one mug.

From tap at the Andechs Klosterbrauerei in Germany. This is the best Dunkels I’ve ever had. A great pairing to the Schweinshaxen and Sauerkraut I had on the occassion.

Bottle. Red/copper coloured. Proper head. Aroma of red berries, malts and hops. Taste is malts, red berries, cherries, caramell and chocolate. Also some roasted flavours and some acidity. Medium carbonation. The abundance of aroma and taste reminds me of a Doppelbock. Very balanced. Full of flavour and super süffig at the same time. One of my alltime favourites.

Oooh, this is nice. Bread dough, with some caramel and some nuttyness in the nose. Really soft and full mouthfeel. The balance is amazing. Nicely nutty and bready, some drying hops towards the finish isa touch grassy/herbal, medium bitterness, beautiful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Andechser am Dom. Clear, deep, dark amber - like root beer - with a big beige head. Deeply malty nose, some fruitiness. Roasty malt flavors, a whiff of smoke, almost a meaty quality - sweet, smoky meat. Amazing lace rings. Everyone should try this on draft! Excellent!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Deep redish brown with an average sized off-white foamy head. Decent retention and a little bit of lacing.
S - Lots of bread and caramel malt. A little nutty roasted smell. Pretty faint smell.
T - A lot like the smell. Good amount of sweet caramel, bread malts. Toasted malt and some mild sugar. Some dark fruit (mostly cherry). A bit of grassy and floral hops provide a bit of balance to the sweetness.
M - Medium body and a good amount of carbonation. Pretty creamy and smooth.
D - Easy to drink and goes down smooth. Really nice, malt forward beer with enough balance that it doesn’t get too sweet.
Notes: Good darker malt beer. Good filing bread like taste and smooth mouthfeel make drinking this quite pleasurable.
