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 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.
