At dusk as the day draws to a close, time passes a bit more slowly. That is exactly the right moment for an Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel.
The world-famous Bockbier from the Holy Mountain in Bavaria wants to be savoured rather than downed. Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel stands firm as a rock upon the table, its colour reminiscent of dark copper with hints of fiery red. Its bright, clear appearance harmonises with a firm, fine-pored foam.
It is a special treat even for the nose: Soft roasted notes and a touch of dried fruit accompany an accentuated caramel aroma. Doppelbock Dunkel from the Holy Mountain of Bavaria is pleasantly sparkling in its presentation. The taste is unmistakable: Full-bodied and velvety, strong but with a pleasant malt aroma – powerful and lusty. It has a readily discernible sweetness accompanied by roasted cocoa notes and a slight hop bitterness.
With a strong finish, the Doppelbock ends on a lasting semisweet chocolate note. A mighty Doppelbock that lets you savour and enjoy the centuries-old Benedictine brewing tradition one sip at a time.
