Bottle: #99 on my RateBeer travel list to Germany. Sweet, brown sugar / syrop, malt taste. Aroma is weak. Pours solid oak brown with an off white lasting head. A bit thin. Food Pairing: Bockwurst.
0.5l bottle bought in a Getrankemarkt in Bavaria. Starts with nice, thick and silky off-white head. Mild, sweetish aromas, bit of milk chocolate, cocoa, some bread, very seducing. Taste is typical Bavarian Dunkel, more on the sweet, malty side, with very moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Easy drinking yet complex, caramel, nuts, milk chocolate. Some sourish, bread-like taste as well. Mild, silky mouthfeel. Perfect dunkel. panda_brewmaster (126) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2017

Like all Andechs beers this is above average quality and rich in taste. Very good Dark, complex but well-balanced and lovely to drink. Good from the bottle but best - not surprisingly - from the tap ideally in the beer garden of the monastery with some traditional food. Close to perfection.
