Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured brilliant copper/ruby, and impeccably clear with a tan reasonably-well-maintained head. Loads of malt in the aroma, with a touch of caramel and hints of chocolate and fruit.

Sweet and malty flavours dominate, with pruney fruit and a tartness that balances the sweetness. Over time a slight molasses bitterness builds, along with a smooth alcoholic warmth and hints of cherries. It's slowly revealing itself as I get through the pint -- magic!

Smooth and rich without being heavy, this is unbelievably easy to drink.

Poured from the bottle into a Trapp Lager glass. Dark, crimson body with three fingers of off-white head. Gorgeous pour!

Smells like dried fruits and sweet wine. A truly terrific scent.

Taste matches the smell point for point. And it's absolutely delicious.

Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy and carbonated. Perfectly pleasant.

This beer came in a mystery six pack of bombers and other large beers. I'm glad this one was in there. A real treat.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium to dark mahogany amber with a thin khaki head that had decent retention and light lacing. Rich malt aroma of caramel malt, brown bread, nuts and dark dried fruit. Flavor follows, with dark bready and caramel malt up front backed by dark dried fruit, particularly figs and dates, a little dark fresh fruit, a hint of rye. Mild grassy hops in the finish. Good medium body with active carbonation (not producing much of a head, oddly enough). A rich, satisfying doppelbock with the best dark brown bread character of any I've tried. Lots of depth and smooth into the finish. A tempting malt bomb of a beer. Glad this brewery is available again in the Northwest.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a deep brown color with a one finger off white head. Recedes down to a thin cap fairly quickly.

S: A big overlying rye bread note, caramel, toasted bread crust, grain, light powdered cocoa, earthy malt and some light dark fruit notes.

T: A rich wave of rye and nuttiness right away. Middle is primarily dark fruit, with a bit of banana and raisin skin. Light cocoa, molasses and rye crust on the finish. Very well balanced. A really solid doppel.
