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 a 500 mL bottle into a stemmed tulip. Thanks to bauermj for bringing back this long-anticipated bottle from Europe.

Appearance: Right away I notice the perfectly sized tan head that is tightly wound with bigger bubbles in the center from an aggressive pour. The beer itself has a date brown color with a ruby tint and transparent edges.

Smell: Rum soaked raisin, plum, dates, figs, and soft molasses. Some clove like spiciness in the background.

Taste: The flavor starts with a rum-soaked raisin. Gooey molasses and toffee sweetness seem to coat a biscuity malt. Some plum and dates some in toward the middle. A slight metallic flavor is a bit off-putting toward the end. A soft, spicy bitterness helps to take the beer out with more balance.

Mouthfeel: There is a sweetness that coats the lips and inside of my mouth with each sip. Almost syrupy, the soft hops at the end prevent it from becoming cloying. Very creamy carbonation, but it is not as strong as it looked after the pour. The body starts medium and seems to get a bit heavier as the sip progresses.

Overall: There is a reason this is a sought after beer. Very well put together, this is the type of beer that I would drink again.
