BEER INFO

Germany | website

Style: Doppelbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Worthy of the reputation. Pours a dark copper with a head that stays. Smells of fig and plumb, so the hops comes as a pleasant surprise. So much fruit and slice that it has a bit of a Abby taste. Right up there with Celebrator. On tap at the Sunnyvale beer garden.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium to dark mahogany amber with a thin khaki head that had decent retention and light lacing. Rich malt aroma of caramel malt, brown bread, nuts and dark dried fruit. Flavor follows, with dark bready and caramel malt up front backed by dark dried fruit, particularly figs and dates, a little dark fresh fruit, a hint of rye. Mild grassy hops in the finish. Good medium body with active carbonation (not producing much of a head, oddly enough). A rich, satisfying doppelbock with the best dark brown bread character of any I've tried. Lots of depth and smooth into the finish. A tempting malt bomb of a beer. Glad this brewery is available again in the Northwest.

Poured a reddish brown color with a small thin, fluffy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dried fruits, sweet caramel and honey, light alcohol. Sweet chocolate, caramel, light roastiness, musty cobwebs and light alcohol as well. Creamy mouthfeel, this is a solid Doppelbock.

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.

Bottle shared by Joe - thanks!

Pours a clear chestnut brown color with a one-finger tan head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of deep caramel malts with good amounts of smooth chocolate and hints of roastiness. Also present are slight amounts of breadiness.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though more robust. Smooth and almost syrupy caramel malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by hints of cocoa powder. Midway through the sip the malt flavors dark with slight amounts of roasted flavors. The roasted flavors fade out quickly and the malt flavors sweeten through to a sweet ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a very smooth thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could have another.

Overall I didn't find this beer as mind-blowing as I'd hoped, and in fact I'd rate Celebrator higher, it's still a very good beer. To be fair it was noted by Joe that it was substantially better on tap. Worth a shot.

Pretty darn good stuff. Nice little roasty caramel sort of flavour, slightly sticky, but pleasantly so, slightly sweet aswell, but well balanced, lots of flavour, decent bitter flavour.

Many thanks to Eric for this rarity.

Appearance: It pours a dark copper/bronze color with some ruby highlights around the edges. The head is caramel colored and is about two fingers deep. Retention was very good, though lacing was on the light side.

Smell: Dark fruit aromas kick it off. It's a blend of raisin, plum, and prune. It smells a little sweet. Malts are very prominent on the nose. Smells like the roasted variety with a bit of caramel blended in. Hops are more apparent than I would've ever guessed. Very nice surprise. They have a bit of an earthy character to them. It's a nice smelling beer, but not quite as deep as I expected.

Taste: The nose is actually a nice representation of the flavor. But, the flavor is more impressive. Raisin, prune, and plum are strong with a little residual bitterness. Roasted and character malts provide a solid base and some sweetness. It's really a light, sweet flavor though. It is a little hoppy, but it's an earthy hop flavor. I wouldn't characterize it as bitter. Surprisingly, this has a really well-balanced flavor. I was expecting very malty and sweet, but it's balanced nicely. No alcohol is noted.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It features a nice medium body and is very smooth and silky. Carbonation is spot on for this one. It's dialed down a little and it goes down really, really easy. Drinkability is likewise very high. I'm not the biggest fan of Doppelbocks, but this is among the finest.

I'll go ahead and 'fess up on this one...I wasn't expecting to be this impressed. I'm really not a huge Doppelbock guy. This had "overrated" written all over it for me. But, it delivers. It's not perfect, but it is no doubt damn good. It's simply a "must try" for all BAs. Thanks again, Eric.

Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel is best served at traditional cellar temperatures (50-55F) into a traditional tumbler or Willibecher. This Kloster doppelbock pours up sublime with a billowy cream colored head which generously tops the deep mahogony body. However, the retention suffers slightly due to the alcohol. The aroma is envitingly rich with some notable melanoidins and richly toasted grains that's reminiscent of freshly baked raisin bread. Hints of fruitiness (e.g. caramel apples, baked fig bars & chocolate-plum sauce) and light alcohol interplay nicely at the rim of the glass. The flavor starts off rich & slightly grainy with some cloying malty sweetness which gives into some underlying spiciness from the Noble hops that finally catch up to add some balance to this malt monster. There's just a touch of cheek warming in the slightly nutty-raisiny sweet finish. The body is medium-full to full bodied with just a perfect amount of carbonation. Very nice!

This is a wonderful, classic doppelbock from one of Germany's remaining monastic breweries. Try pairing this Kloster doppelbock with hearty game like black pepper-teriyaki marinated venison or orange-marmalade glazed duck. If you're in the mood for something more traditional then try spit-roasted Schweinshaxn (pork knuckles) seasoned with caraway seed & white pepper, served with a plate of red cabbage sauerkraut, mushroom-gravy covered spätzle and thinly sliced sweet onions & radi (white radish). How about some cinnamon glazed apple dumplings for dessert? Here's to liquid bread!

Drank from my Erdinger weizen glass.

A - Pours a hazeey slightly redish amber coulour.

S - Plenty of sweet malt and some caramel.

T - Plenty of malt, toffee, caramel and some biscuit, very well balanced indeed.

M - This is a very well balnced brew between medium to low carbonation and a medium body that makes for a very smooth drop.

D - You will not find a better Doppelbock anywhere

Poured from a .5l bottle into a 20oz imperial pint. Thanks to Iain for the hook up!

A: Pours a clear, deep, dark brown with hints of garnet-red. Creamy, pillowy, one finger head that disappears quickly leaving no lace.

S: Chocolate and toasted bread dominate the nose. Also detected were hints of caramel and tangy fruit (like green apples).

T: The taste pretty much follows the nose with the addition of an incredible yeasty spiciness. The malt flavors alternate between dry and toasted and sweet and caramely.

M: Smooth velvet and prickly spiciness is what's going on here. This starts off quite actively carbonated and then dies off.

D: Incredible! This beer has forced me to reconsider my self imposed aversion to malty beers. This is so different (to me) it boggles the mind.

A huge thanks to Greg for including this as an extra in our recent trade! I've been wanting to try this one for quite some time.

A: The pour is a dark amber-kissed brown color with a finger's worth of khaki foam.

S: A nice sweet nose with some cola, chocolate, and caramel. There's a fair amount of roast to this, which I was not quite expecting.

T: The flavor is pretty much what I expect from a doppelbock. Toffee, caramel, cola, cherries, and just a pleasant sweetness overall. The roasted and toasted malts provide some nice complexity.

M: The body is medium with a very nice creamy and smooth carbonation to it.

D: I really liked this doppelbock, which is becoming a style that I enjoy very much. Good flavor and mouthfeel, and easy to drink.

Bottle to Bock Glass
500ml

Best by: 20/11/12
Thanks to my inlaws for bringing this home from Germany

App- Deep & Rich copper mixed with brown. Fairly dense with some shinny yellow in the center. A good puck of a off white/beige head with a pond layer top.

Smell- A lot going on in this one. A bit small with aromatics of sweet sugar, caramel, wheat and raisins. Seemingly small quad, bock and wheat beer in one. No sign of 7% and just a touch creamy.

Taste- This is very tasty, rich and smooth and filling. More sweetness than I wouldve thought with a malty, raisiny flavor and a touch of creamy sweetness. Again like a small quad with rich flavors that are balanced and layered well.

Mouth- Med/med. creamy malty, liquid simple syrup with brown sugar and wheat.

Drink- Just a fine example of a wonderful style. Wonderfully layered, sweet, savory and rich. Glad I have more!

The family and I had the privilege of sampling several beers at the monastery on a lovely May 31 afternoon. This is an experience to be remembered in itself. This review is a combination of my son's opinion and mine.
The appearance was a hazel brown with a long-lasting lumpy large tan head.
The aroma was toasted nutty and roasty malts, with a dark chocolate front and a pleasant yeasty sidenote. My son picked up on some plum, prune and raisin in the smell -- his nose is better than mine. There was a note of honey as well.
What a rich taste! Smooothly sweet up front, with coffee and chocolate and all those dark dried fruits lingering in the background.
Mouthfeel -- divine. It's so smooth and full you hardly want to swallow. Just the right amount of carbonation. If it weren't for the 7.1%, you could drink this all day.

I can hardly recommend the experience at the monastery too highly, except for one thing -- get there in the morning! By late lunch time, the tour buses show up, and its SRO with long lines for beer all afternoon. Don't eat breakfast, have an early lunch at the monastery -- HUGE portions, so share! -- then sample beers for a couple of hours. Then walk around.

0.5L mug served vom fass with a rich creamy tan head. Deep amber/maple color. Rich full toasted barley taste, sweet, maple, faint smokey flavor. While almost a meal on its own, surely it is an amazing compliment to cheese products or salty meat dishes (available at the cafe!) Reminiscent of a Nut Brown, but with a much fuller and conscious substance. Truly delicious, particulalry at the source. Enjoyed at Kloster Andechs - I highly recommend you visit this place.

A: Dark reddish-brown body with about an inch of light tan head. Quickly receded but left behind a nice skim and some lacing.

S: Sweet malts: Caramel, chocolate, and cola. Real clean aroma profile.

T: Packed with plenty of sweet malts that are neither cloying nor heavy on the palate. Lots of cola, caramel, dark fruits, some chocolate and a bit of generic roasted goodness.

M: Medium bodied with a gentle rolling carbonation that keeps the sweetness moving across the tongue. Smooth finish with just a hint of lingering sweetness.

D: A pleasant drinking experience! My glass was empty before I knew it. I wish this was available in the states... I'd drink it every time I grilled some sausages. Glad I was able to finally track this one down.

Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel
Klosterbrauerei Andechs
Style: Doppelbock
ABV: 7.10 %

A surprise gift from Don Lowman on his wedding/FL visit during Sept 2010. Thanks for the kind gesture Don aka "digita7693"

Enjoyed this brew with a peanut/thai chicken meal in th eback yard with wife and good friends. It was a sipper with the higher abv and semi boozy character. Enjoyable for sure a nice bock sipper, but not a sessionable brew. Good for a cold night or long conversations. Exceptionally good primer for a Terrapin Depth Charge! (Milk/Coffee Stout)

Appearance was dark brown tea in color with amazing clarity, short head and retention.
Smells noticably boozy on a foudation of dark malt and fruityness in the background.
Tastes as it smells with a nice solid dark malt backbone, notes of dark fruit, raisan, toffee, etc.
Mouthfeel is semi slick with medium+ body and high carbonation.

500ml bottle 7,1% Abv

I have never been a huge fan of bock beers, but I decided to give this one a go as it's one of the best in the style. Lets see whether it can convert me.

Appearance: Half way through the pour and I can already see that this is going to be an amazing looking beer. Crystal clear, deep crimson with stunning highlights when held to even the smallest light source. Good sized, cream coloured head that has pretty good retention and leaves a decent amount of lace stuck to the glass.

Smell: Wow, after the first whiff I know that this beer is going to change my perceptions towards bocks. Wonderful, slightly caramelly roasted malt aromas dominate the nose, darkish fruits (dates predominantly), molasses and a hint on smokiness are also noted.

Taste: The taste follows perfectly from the nose. Dark caramel malt, dates, cherries, molasses and a hint of coffee are just a few of the flavours that come to mind during each sip. Thankfully alcohol is barely -if at all- noted in the flavour.

Mouthfeel: What a pleasure this beer is to drink. Just fuller than medium bodied with perfect, ultra-smooth carbonation.

Drinkability: This beer has certainly convinced me that there are great bock beers out there and I will most certainly be having this one again many times in the future.

After having this brew on-tap back in October, I was reading others reviews of this stellar brew, and as this is stark bier time here in Munich, I want to now try from the bottle and dig into it.I recently tried the Maximator from Augustiner, and it totally blew me away, so a re-review was in order. A bit of a celebration night for me anyway, so thought I would have a treat.
Pours a deep mahogany-brown, ruby tones, dark tan/leather color. The head is thick, easily staying around for a few minutes before settling in the glass. Nice amount of carbonation.
Malts, dark bread, light bitter chocolate, roasted coffee beans, tobacco smoke, molasses, a musty oak/ grain aroma, dried fig, raisin all mingle to create a complex and interesting aromatic experience. There is a light spiciness, cracked black pepper on the finish that cuts the sweetness nicely. However, I found the Augustiner Maximator to have a much more assertive aromatic profile
On the palate. Fig, dark bread, rum, raisin, coffee, smoke, brown sugar intermingle on the initial sip. The spice apparant in the nose comes through on the finish and cuts the sweetness with a nice amount of sharpness that greatly add to the drinkablity. The sweetness is kept in check, and that is a factor in Dopplebock that is a main critique point for me.
Mouthfeel is more in the medium body range, yet perfect. The alcohol is completely buried, and goes down smooth as a Helles lager.
The last Dopplebock I had was the Augustiner Maximator, and I must say it is a toss-up between the two for the highest award. The Maximator was much more chocolate heavy in the flavor, and became a bit sweet towards the second half of the bottle. Andechs Dopple remains biting, sharp and interestingly complex all the way to the "bitter end"--of the bottle that is.
This is definately the top Dopplebock is Germany, only wish it had a cool "-ator" name however, I guess The monks at Andechs were too busy brewing perfect beer to spend too much time on names, it speaks for itself

Sampled back on 1/28/16 with a good friend. Comes in a single 500ml (16.9 ounce) for around $4.99 from Hy-Vee. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "HB-MUNICH" .5L handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a deep mahogany in color with a good 1-finger foamy/creamy beige head. Lots of lacing was seen when sipped that stuck to the sides of the glass when sipped. Aroma is of sweet malts with spices for the most part. Taste follows the nose with some dark fruits (plums?) with a hint of caramel as well. Very tasty and goes down easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Smooth and creamy. Medium+-bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall, a great German brew!

500ml bottle into a dimpled mug. Paid £3.10 for a single bottle.

Pours a clear, bright, chestnut body with plenty of beautiful ruby highlights and fine streaming carbonation that only becomes visible when held to the light. A dense, foamy, two-finger in height, light tan coloured head quickly reduces to a thin film and collar, leaving behind small amounts of soapy lace.

Rich, sweet, toasty and bready malt profiles lead the aroma upfront. Substantial notes of toffee and caramel follow, along with raisins, plums and dark stone fruit. Lighter hints of banana-like yeast esters are noticeable in the background, becoming more apparent after warming slightly. Taste follows suit, but encompasses far more complexity than the nose implied. Soft caramel and toffee lead above an abundance of warm toasted malts, before transitioning to a complex amalgamation of dark fruits. Raisin-like sweetness is the most prevalent flavour, but fleshy plums, figs, prunes and cherry are all perceptible, along with hints of brown sugar and molasses throughout the mid-palate. Towards the finish, slightly darker roast characters combine with mildly bitter hops to bring traces of dark chocolate, cocoa, spice and earth, expertly preventing the hugely malt forward profile from becoming cloying. In the mouth, a medium to full body and moderate carbonation give a soft, smooth and velvety feel, drying out just slightly towards the finish in combination with a pleasant amount of alcohol warmth. Traces of roasted bitterness and dark chocolate linger on the palate, but the finish mainly comprises of residual malt and fruit sweetness.

Overall this is a fantastic beer. Hugely complex, incredibly well balanced, and ridiculously quaffable. Perhaps it could finish a little drier, but ultimately it still remains the best Doppelbock I have come across to date. Recommended.

500ml bottle into imperial pint glass. Been wanting to try this one for more than 5 years.

A: Pours a deep caramel brown with mahogany highlights beneath a fizzy and active light tan head that rather quickly faded into a wispy film and fuzzy collar.
S: Very sugary and sweet notes of caramel, dried dates and raisins dominate, with notes of grapes, cocoa, spice, earthy hops, iron, and apple juice beneath.
T: Not as sugary as the nose but the flavors of candied dates, dried figs, raisin, cocoa and mild spice are easily noticeable. I get hints of leather, crème brulee, and herbal hops in the finish, and the aftertaste has a touch of brown sugar, bread crust, and very mild booze.
M: Heavy and chewy mouthfeel, slick and smooth medium-full body, and low but fizzy carbonation.
O: Extremely balanced, smooth and complex. Not as sweet as Celebrator, but more complex and integrated. Very well done.

Dark and rich, black with hints of coffee and chocolate. Almost no head to speak of, but flavor and aroma make up for lack of eye appeal. Oily mouthfeel, has the color of a cola. Carbonation is light, but flavor is full. Nice mellow bitterness remains on palate. Thumbs up!

500ml bottle was poured into a large tulip.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger off white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark amber mahogany color with vision of slow moving bubbles when held up to light.

Smell: Fruity, caramel, toffee, bready, banana, and raisin.

Taste: Raisins, bananas, toffee, caramel, wheat, toasted malts, grassy hops, a little bitter chocolate, and a little bitternes in the end.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, a little chewy, full bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Wow. This doppelbock is the bomb. At less than $4 a bottle, revisiting this beer again is going to be easy.
