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.

500ml bottle

A- Dark brown with a half finger off white head. Spotty lacing.

S- Figs and other dark fruits, malts, caramel, brown sugar.

T- Dark fruits and sweet malts. There is a burnt chocolate/smokiness also. No alcohol in the taste at all.

M- Medium body and carbonation. As "chewy" as this beer is it goes down very smooth.

O- Like a slice of fresh black bread in a glass. Amazing.

Pours dark copper color. When held up to the light a vibrant red with hints of gold is revealed. Almost no head and minimal lacing. Smells of toffee, cookies, butter, wood, banana, malt, and sweet bread. Taste is bready with hints of roasted caramel, very light brown sugar, and more toffee. Not as sweet as the nose had initially suggested. An light and airy mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Good balance to the flavors. Finishes fast and pleasant without much linger. A very drinkable and delicious beer.

Pours into a half liter stein a deep garnet color with a off white crown atop,love the rich full color.Buttery caramel and dark German maltiness in the nose,it has an iron/metallic tinge to it.Buttery rum flavors,almost like a rum ball with that butteriness sticking around for awhile with some chocolate coming in the finish but not overly sweet.Worthy of the praise this beer is not in your face and it doesn't hit to hard in one aspect,just a great all around doppelbock.

Very smooth drinking with less of that port wine, rummy taste characteristic of the style. I would still prefer a weizenbock but this is very good. Not too sweet, fully loaded with caramel and burnt sugar. I would rank this third behind EInbecker Winter Bock and Korbinian.
