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.

Had this beer on tap at a Kloster Andechs bier stub in the Marien Platz in Munchen! Pours a dark brown molasses color with a little head and light laces around the glass. Smells of chocolate, espresso, dried fruits, and spices. Tastes of caramelized figs, prunes, spices, dark chocolate, espresso, and cooked fruit. Rich mouthfeel, feels thick and slightly chewy, but isn't overly heavy. I would like to have this beer again...I wish they sold it in the states.

This is the beer by which I will now measure all German brews, and all lagers from anywhere.

Pours a sparkling, champagne-y caramel brown. About an inch of off white foam that hangs around for a while. Smell is bready and yeasty, with a hint of fruit notes.

The taste is superb. Yeast, roasted brandy, dark fruits, raisins? plums?, figs? ... just a great explosive complexity. I would buy this every week if it was available. Creamy, densely textured mouthfeel.

Thanks to brdc for the trade. Just phenomenal.
