Beer added by: Bierman9 on 06-16-2002

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.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear medium brown color, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing. Doesn't look like much, to be quite honest.

Smells pretty nice, like caramel, dark fruits, lager yeast, and a little bit of chocolate.

The taste is similar. This is one of the smoothest dopplebocks I've ever had- the alcohol doesn't show itself whatsoever- just smooth delicate flavors of caramel, toffee, toasted bread, dark fruits, chocolate, brown sugar and some lager-ish yeast flavors. The malt character on this one is sweet, but bready. No real hop flavor to speak of.

This one is medium bodied, not as thick as I'd expect, but it is only 7% ABV. A little bit creamy, but mostly crisp, with a lower amount of carbonation.

This is widely considered one of the best dopplebocks in the world. I find that hard to dispute.

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.
