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.

Dark mahogany color, with tan head. Dark dried fruits (fig, raisin, prune) on the nose with a hint of chocolate. Rich caramel flavors along with some chocolate. Rich mouthfeel. Really excellent brew. great for a fall day outside.

On Tap at German restaurant in Philly. Pours brown fluffy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of plums, caramel malt and hint of coffee. Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of caramel malt, plums, brown sugar and some herbal hops. Finish is long and semi-sweet. Sweet but tasty brew.

Pours a murky brown with a one finger head that does not linger long. The first thing I noticed was the incredible aroma that was given off as the head died down. Lots of dark fruit including plum and raisin, and a hefty malt backbone. The taste is more of the same. A truly extraordinary example of a doppelbock. It doesn't get much better than this in the style. I will definitely pick up another one.

Pours a dark, clear garnet, one finger of creamy tan head drops off quickly

Faint aroma the cool, mostly toffee, grape and malt

Big caramel, toffee and bready notes, backed up with brandy, fig, earth, tobacco. Just excellent example of what decoction mash caramelization can do

Mouth feel is full and lush. fairly low carbonation bite

Sadly, I had never heard of Klosterbrauerei Andechs when I was stationed in Germany in my youth.... every one of their beers I've tried are clean and masterfully malted. This one comes in with all the big flavor notes you want in a doppel, without any off flavors. Just amazing.
