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.

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.

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.
