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.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and bready aromas. Taste is much the same with toasted malt and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very malty and toast-like presence in the aroma and flavor.

Had this on 2013-10-30 in Columbia, PA and again on 2014-02-16, side-by-side with an Ayinger Celebrator.

A - Pretty clear dark brown with ruby highlights. 2-finger light tan head that sticks around and leaves moderate lacing.

S - Rich, lightly toasted dark sour wheat bread, dark fruit and some earthy spice. Not very strong.

T - Rich dark malt with plenty of dark fruit accents like tart very ripe figs, cherries and plums. Light caramel sweetness. There's a nice hop bite on the finish that balances with the dark fruit. Very rich and satisfying.

M - Medium-heavy body and light-medium carbonation. Substantial going down but dries nicely. Really good, thick feel.

O - See my Ayinger review for more detail but with the Ayinger, the contrast between the various flavors is more pronounced / bolder. The Andech's has more of an integrated / balanced flavor plus a firmer mouthfeel. In this head-to-head comparison, the Andech's wins by a nose. This is the best doppelbock I've ever had. I enjoyed everything about it and look forward to having more no that they are available in PA.

The beer comes in a dark mahogany red brown color.

The aroma is a bit muted, but very much doppelbock. Nutty toasty malt, toffee, and a bit of sweetness.

The flavor follows with a complex doppelbock classic flavor. Spiciness of floral German hops really stands out for this beer along with the notes from the aroma. Lots of nuttiness, a bit of toasty sweetness. It is a mellow and smooth drinking doppelbock. I was getting the umami and salty notes having it on tap. Having it in bottle, it really drinks so smooth with caramel sweetness.

There's a light to medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

This is quite a rich beer and stands right up next to Ayinger as a world class doppelbock.

Had on tap at New World Tavern

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, tan-brown in color, clear

Smell: toasted malt, caramel, and smoke

Taste: burnt caramel, smoke, and toasted malt

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy body, sweet and smoky, medium carbonation, smooth

Overall: A really nice and smoky classic dopplebock. The smokiness allows this to be sweet but never cloying. Amazing on tap. I would certainly pick this one up again.

Looks good. Deep reddish brown.
Lots of raisins in the nose, other caramel coated dark fruit aromas in there as well. Very nicely equipped. Layers of aromas to get through.
Taste is quite nice as well. Not as complex though, and for me just ends up being too sweet. The sweetness is fine for a while, but as you get nearer the bottom of the glass the residual sugars start to build up and make for a bit of an unpleasant experience.
Nice and smooth, but again just too much sugar for me.
A nice beer, but not quite worth the rating it has here. The difficulty for Americans to get it probably drives up its rating a notch or two. Still a nice beer though.

On-tap @ Zum Schneider in New York, NY.

Served in a 1-Liter mug. Brown in color with ruby hightlights and a large, beige head. Really pleasant aroma, heavy on roasted malts, raisin, and fig. I found myself going back over and over again to smell it. Medium bodied, not overly sweet as some dopplebocks can be. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Overall, a very enjoyable beer and maybe the best in its style I have had to date. One I would order again in a heartbeat.

I think I had a dreadfully old bottle of this years ago. New import edition. Bottle from New Beer Distro. Batch L 1693. Whatever that means.

Half inch of fleeting tan head. Clear black tea, black on brown on red sort of body.

Smells of maple, spilt Euro lager, & hearty bread. Licorice? Just a touch of stone fruit. Doesn't smell like they sent the freshest examples over.

Tastes like Cheerios, scalded milk, sharply charred bbq bitterness, faint scotch.

Really, really carbonated. Sizzling. Don't like that. Somewhat itchy/starchy feel. A bit boozy.

I looked forward to this beer for so long. It just seems so different from the standards of Celebrator & Korbinian that I've come to love.

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

Dark brown in the glass, chestnut tone when held to the light, it shows perfect clarity. Big head of light tan foam that dissipates in a couple minutes, which breaks across the surface after a few sips. Drippy lace around the edges.

Smells slightly sweet and nutty, molasses and dark bread.

Taste is similar, primarily malty and sweet, with trace amounts of nuttiness and a slightly bitter finish. Faint metallic notes at times. Feel is adequate though it seems a little watery. Seems more like a Dunkel or Euro Dark Lager. Overall it's good, though not as great as I'd hoped. Would probably reach for Maximator, Optimator, or Celebrator first, but it's definitely worth a try.

4.09/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours up a good amount of head which basically has no retention. The head is a light beige while the body is a mix of dark amber, maroon, and garnet which glows a crimson red to ruby when held up to the light. No lacing at all.

Nose- Delicious- if I were to sum it in one term, I would use fruitcake. But this beer is much more complex than that. Definite raisin and cherry, almost the candied kind with spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. A creamy, almost milk quality that hints at chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, and caramel. Some roasted malt qualities as well. This is very promising. Some honey and nectar as well. Light smoke- smells like a nitro beer but it's in a bottle.

Taste- Starts off with the nitro feel with minor chocolate, cocoa, and caramel which moves into deeper, roasted notes combined with raisin and cherry. Slight bitterness with hints of oak and vanilla. Some spice- nutmeg and cinnamon, tiny bit of clove. Not quite as delightful as the aroma but still intriguing. This is much more about subtlety than dominating your taste buds. Nice malt bill that is complex and well rounded but doesn't have much presence. This isn't a bad thing as I generally only appreciate towering malt bills in scotch ales and imperial stouts. A little bit of letdown after the nose though. Seems a little thin, especially on the finish. Slight vinosity provided by the raisin and cherry. Hints of brown bread, brown sugar, and molasses as well.

Mouthfeel- A little more than light bodied with light carbonation which works for the style. Nice and neat slightly dry finish. Hints of smoothness. Very clean malt bill leaves the tongue feeling fresh.

Drinkability- This beer is a bit unassuming and as result, drinks fairly easy. No indication of alcohol. Just a very clean, almost creamy beer. 4 dollars for half a liter of a world renowned beer seems more than reasonable.

Overall- Really good, solid beer. I'm not the biggest fan of doppelbocks but this one is a good example of the classic style. I prefer Ayinger to this, but Celebrator seems to me an anomaly among doppelbocks. Glad that this is finally being distributed in Oregon. This is a must try and will be a repurchase if it continues to be distributed here.

.5 L draft in a mug at Brauhaus Schmitz, Philadelphia

A- Deep brown amber, with a tan head. Doesn't retain.

S- String malt, caramelized sugar, caramel, a bit of iron.

T- A bit of roast. Sweet caramel, a little metallic.

M- Slightly viscous. Pretty light for a doppelbock, however. A bit of a bitter finish.

O- Decent. I'm not superbly impressed, but it has some really good caramelized characters.

Clear dark brown colored lager with a small tan colored head. I could almost call the color red.

Smells strongly malty. Aromas of prune and fig. Chocolate, caramel and faint grape scent.

Starts out malty with a big caramel taste. Mildly sweet and nutty, the point being it isn't too sweet. Flavors of fig and raisin with a slight rum flavor. Little bit of chocolate.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a good Bock that isn't too sweet.

Poured on tap at Churckey into a tall highball footed glass.

A real nice gorgeous looking doppelbock. Deep ruby red with great tangerine orange edges on the sides that just shine like a gem. Head is one finger tall and super creamy, off tan with even sized bubbles in the formation. A real gorgeous looking beer here.

Nose is strangely subdued and muted. Soft grains and malt, not much heat, maybe a little bit of toffee. There's an interesting sort of kind of soft melted butter sense to this as well.

Palate improves quite a bit but unexpectedly. Soft toffee, not much caramel or large spice. Incredibly creamy vanilla palate with just a hint of light carbonation to make it fun. Silky finish with a thick coating and light sweetness.

Overall it's a great beer but I was hoping for more of a toffee/caramel angle that's just not here. Still going to have to go with Ayinger-Celebrator for the standard and one to beat, but this is no slouch.

Pours with a nice 1/2" light khaki head... the brew is dark brown with beautiful garnet highlights... good lacing.

Nose is dark toast... very malty... light caramel...

Flavor mirrors the nose... no chocolate like some darker versions (like Celebrator)... just pure malty goodness... something that I associate with dates with warmth, so does a grainy sweetness.

Very smooth body... the head is so creamy it almost feels like nitro.

Worthy of the hunt and the reputation.

4.5's across the board.

appearance: rich amber brown, hints of real red in there not much head but you can imagine why

smell: roasted malted barely stands out with a bit of alcohol in there some walnuts round it out

taste: what a rich walnut tanin taste, a bit over powering but I enjoy it. Almost a wintry brew

mouthfeel: haunts the roof of the mouth with a stratigicly placed biter at the end and those tannins

overall: A great dynamic brew this is one you have when you are looking to drink beer, not party not have drunken good times but really drink a brew. One thing pops into my head $2000 call girl, you spend some time enjoying that

This is a medium brown color, fizzy with a slight head. The smell is very sweet and heavy on the malt. Dominant smell is brown sugar. Taste is sweet and heavy, with hints of roasted marshmallows and almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is slightly on the lighter, fizzy side for something this strong and tasty. Alcohol is hidden very well. Overall, one of the best of the style I've had.

One of the real surpises during PIB was to see this beer on tap there.

The beer pours a copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty outstanding, as the beer show-cases considerable cherry, vanilla, a hint of butter scotch and even light chocolate on a malty frame. The flavor profile replicates the nose, and while the beer is pretty malty and fairly sweet, the beer is not at all heavy, and the beer came across as surprisingly drinkable. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a fairly long finish. The alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and this beer is ridiculously easy drinking. It's a bit on the sweet side, which didn't work all that well on a warm summer day in Portland, but this beer would be a real treat to drink in fall or winter.

Very nice beer.

This Doppelbock is *VERY* long-time "Want" for me, finally had the chance to try this at Portland International Beerfest 2013. A 4 oz. pour (clean glass, first taster of the day) - 1 ticket/$1!.

A: Deep amber with a distinctly reddish undertone in the sunlight. Good, steady carbonation rises and generous lacing falls from a dense ivory head that starts at nearly a finger. Would love to see this as a full pour in "proper" glassware, but this fest's glassware does it justice.

S: A bit sweet and floral, something akin to caramel apple, candied nuts and honey.

T: Plenty of fruit: apple, pear, fig and a little woody brandy. Sugary and malty/grainy (pecan pie or brittle?), but then an ashy-dry bittering follows in the finish. Sturdy and complex flavors, quite well-balanced.

M: Awesome smoothness/creaminess - probably my favorite attribute. Vaguely sticky, but not too starchy/gummy. 7% alcohol is well-concealed.

O: What a treat to try, among my favorites of this terrific festival and among the very best of this beer style that I've tried. Extremely easy to drink (as were the other three from Andechs at PIB, I should add...). Sweet at times, fruity, nutty, and a balanced bitterness - bold and satisfying. Very glad to have tried this!

500 ml bottle, had a bottle date but I forgot to write it down, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a dark brown color with an inch of off-white head, very good retention and lacing.

S- Sweet aroma of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and bread. This actually smells really, really nice. I'm usually not into doppelbocks because of excessive sweetness, but the aroma here is sweet and complex without overdoing it.

T- Again, not too sweet at all. Flavor has a really nice dark fruit component, along with nuts, bread, caramel and brown sugar.

M- Medium-bodied, soft, creamy and smooth.

O- I was very pleasantly surprised by this, it's damn tasty stuff, easily my new favorite in the entire style.

"Benediktinische Gastfreundschaft im Andescher Bräustüberl." Brewed in the style of a Doppelbock, one of the highest rated Doppelbock beers in the world, this beer is not distributed outside of the abbey. Thanks to my brother for bringing this highly anticipated treat back from Germany. Date on bottle is 15 03 12.

Poured from a 500ml. bottle to a flute glass. Served north of 51º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a thin copper cream head of a frothy consistency. Body color is a mahogany orange amber of high clarity with ample carbonation. Retention is average. Appearance is pretty nice. 3.5

(Smell) Moderately toasted german malts, a touch of grain character for depth. Big notes of plums, dates and figs and a clean bready yeast tone. A pinch of warming ester alcohol. Very clean aroma, but full of depth. Potency is medium/high. Very inviting aroma. 4.25

(Taste) A modest caramel and german malt sweetness with a touch of bready grain depth, despite being even cleaner than the nose gave off. Immediately follows through with a wave of dark fruit characters- figs, dates and raisins with a moderate sweetness that transitions seamlessly from the malt profile to finish off with a clean, ideally balanced finish. Hops are mostly faded but the malt and yeast characters in this beer are truly enough to carry it unaided. 4.5

(Mouthfeel) Very clean texture with a smooth bready texture, moderate carbonation. Body is medium for the style, medium/heavy overall. Alcohol presence is low. Really nice texture and carbonation level overall. 4.25

(Overall) I really enjoy the depth and the drinkability of this Doppelbock. My favorite part is the yeast depth falling together so well with the malt profile. This is a well hidden gem of a Doppelbock. Definetly worth trying! 4.25

Ah, the legendary Andechser Doppelbock. I got my chance to try it on-tap at Andechser am Dom in Munich and was excited to have the chance. On to the beer:

This doppelbock is ruby brown in color with red and orange hues which add an extra texture to the appearance. That's not to ignore the good amount of lace which whip around the glass. The nose makes me think of a meal in a glass, a strong dark sweet bread note, but trailing it is a kiss of chocolate. The flavor provided is big in quantity; it's toasty, bready, a little bit sweet, and has a breath of alcohol whicc compliments rather than disturbs the chemistry of the beer. It's medium full bodied, which is fitting, though perhaps not as warming as I expected given the talk of this beer. Make no mistake, this is good stuff that I would recommend you taste when you come to Bavaria.

Served from a 16.9oz (0.5L) bottle into a Guinness 250th anniversary Imperial Pint. Fridge temp.

Grabbed by a coworker for me while he was in Germany.

Appearance- Relatively clear amber/brown with one finger of bubbly white head that didn't last long leaving a pleasant ring around the beer.

Smell- Caramel malts, mild hop earthy aroma, metalicy smells, maybe some dark stone fruit. Not too impressive. Mostly just roasted malts.

Taste- Caramel, toffee, cherry, plum, light roasty coffee, and a heavily roasted malt backbone. On the sweeter side, but not cloying by any means.Perfect example of a Dopplebock. Alcohol is hidden as well.

Mouthfeel- Smooth and rich (but not too viscous) with moderate carbonation. No booze burn at all. Very creamy throughout.

Overall- One of the best Dopplebocks I've had. Truly a fantastic example of the style.

Brownish ruby colour, ring of off white head, light lace on the glass as well. Smell is a nice mix of malt and dark fruits, comes off quite jammy with some nutty/almond like points, but great aromas of malts and fruit all the way through. Taste isn't quite as nice as the nose but retains the flavours of malts and nutty dark fruit, a bit jammy as well, plums and a bit of chocolate mid palate into the finish, more dark fruits in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium bodied with a nice feel. A really good doppelbock but not as good as Celebrator, still really nice to be able to try this though.

Shared by Pino, 500ml into a tulip.

Dark brown with mahogany hues, beige head with great retention and good lace. Nose is bready, jam and dark fruit notes, nuts and toffee. Taste has mroe bready flavours, dark fruits, toasted grains, a sweeter 'jammy' flavour pervades but dries out in the finish. Medium full, real smooth lower carbonation without any alcohol. An excellent doppel, would doppel again.
