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.

On draft, pours a dark ruby copper red, very thin, little carbonation, with just a little bit of head.

The nose is heavy malt, caramel, dried dark fruit, some belgian yeast, figs and biscuit. The flavor is so smooth and easy drinking, dark fruit, raisins, caramel, a little cocoa, and a little nutty finish. This is impressive, well balanced, medium bodied, a little chewey going down, but still very good. I like it.

My first brew from this brewery, this dunkel pours ruby brown with thin off white head and
very light lacing. Nose of caramel malts, fresh biscuit, and almost a brandy like aroma.
Taste is first and foremost caramel malts dancing with a lively mouthfeel, sweet biscuit
like flavors on the back from the yeast, and a very light hop flavor on the aftertaste.
A most excellent example of the style with a light syrupy sweetness that is good enough
to sustain any monk. Ahhh...beer, meat, cheese, and praise to God....maybe they got
something going on in the monasteries after all!
