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%).

Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, - AUG 22, 2010
Aroma: toffee and strong malt, hint of alcohol with a touch fruity notes. Appearance:perfect brown with red highlights, pours clear with a perfect tan brown head leaving thick sheet lacing. Flavour: oh WOW malt with immediate hop balance (not expected but brilliant) followed by mocha toffee complexity. Palate: thick and nicely carbonated leaving the hop and mocha finish.

Bottle. Deep ruby colour, small off-white head. Aroma: sweet molasses, brown bread, caramel, prunes. Medium to full body. Medium sweet taste. Rich maltiness, dried fruit, bit bready. Low bitterness. Alco absolutely away. Tasty stuff.

birraiolo (315) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2017
Bottiglia da 50cl. Color tonaca di frate molto scura con schiuma nocciola di buona tenuta. Al naso risaltano subito i malti tostati seguiti da note di cioccolato e frutta matura. Al palato inizio maltato dolcino che presenta un buon corpo seguite da note fruttate, finale quasi speziato con retrogusto dolciastro.

Koźlaków nie pijam, ale ten jest rozszlachetniony jakiś, bardzo kaloryczny, słodko palony, trzeba to lubić, a najlepiej uwędzić.

voyageurmike (510) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2017
From bottle, pours deep ruby red with tan head. Dark fruit aroma, raisin and plum taste. Sweet malt finish. Delicious example of this style.

fkoolen (1336) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Taster @ Cafe Frape, Maastricht. Clear chestnut, offwhite foamy head. Caramel malty, dried fruits, clove, lightly herbal. Lingers nicely. Medium-firm body, low

biilz (207) - SPAIN - SEP 30, 2017
Богатое на вкус и оттенки пиво. Аромат встречает нас запахов кофе и чернослива. При глотке вкус буквально меняется ежесекундно. Тут и кофе и шоколад , сухофрукты и жженая карамель. Приятное сладко-жженое послевкусие. К сожалению достаточно сильно чувствуется алкоголь. Быстро выветривается.

Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Ciemne piwo z ładną drobnopecherzykową pianą. W smaku dominują akcenty słodowe przełamane nutami palonymi. Aromat podobnie. Godny polecenia podwójny koźlak

wlf (740) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Dark red brown to black with a red shine, big off-white brownish head; aroma is dark fruits, spicy and gentle alcoholic, dark sugar; taste is quite sweet, dark malts, grains, fruity and spicy, low bitterness; texture is silky with medium to high carbonation and a medium body

GregMooreNH (115) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Pours golden hue with light head. Aroma is of spices with a hint of roast. Taste in nuttiness at first, which then transitions to sweet plum. Aftertaste is smooth, without bitterness. A very, very drinkable beer.
