Other Information

A German version of a Belgian Christmas Ale, This Reinheitsgebot dark beer drinks smoothly and cleanly, but delivers a very direct punch. Sweet on the tongue with a roasted malt and burnt wheat taste, this ‘double bock’ beer is for serious, studied and not too frequent contemplation. Drink cold to counter act the sweetness; not recommended to accompany food. This beer is a meal in itself.

  1. Stujago

    This is a very smooth dark beer. Luxuriant and sweet. It doesn’t have the same intense dark fruit flavours of other doppelbocks but it is very pleasant. Malty undertones.

  2. Steven Allen

    This beer has a very complex flavour. A hint of ginger, caramel and lemon and then a massive Bourbon whiskey finish! If you like Jack Daniels then this is going to appeal! It is very sweet and not a beer that I’d drink in quantity, something to savour! It’s feels more like a whiskey and coke cocktail than a beer! I loved it!

  3. Alexey Nekhaenko

    Drinks not as heavy as you’d expect but clearly leaves the mark afterwards. Complex but not excessive taste. Something for those who like tough beer evenings

  4. Gavin H

    An excellent example of a dark Doppelbock. You know it’s a powerful beer from the first taste, plenty of malty and dark chocolate flavours coming through strongly, with the alcohol never far behind. A lovely dark maroon-brown colour and a creamy head add to the feeling that this is something special

  5. John Sanders

    If I was told that I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life, and this Doppelbock was it, I wouldn’t complain. It is a fantastic beer, so complex with so much going on.

    The pour is typical of the style – deep mahogany brown which glows almost red when you hold it up to the light, and a lovely velvety beige head deep enough to paint anyone’s moustache. The smell is incredible – acrid hops, chocolate, caramel, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, Christmas Pudding and so much fruity, spicy goodness.

    Now the taste – WOW!! Chocolate, toffee, figs, prunes and coffee – not the instant stuff but a great coffee made with fresh grounds – the sweetness is there but subdued, and the warming alcohol reaches all the parts you want it to. Nothing in the mouthfeel or the aftertaste subdue this magnificent beer – silky-smooth and goes on for ever.

    Simply perfect.

  6. Kristin

    Lovely, sweet, smooth, complex. The alcohol does not dominate the taste, so you get the complexity of flavours. Very pleasant, one for my favourite list

  7. James Murray

    Excellent dopplebock. Dark and glorious in the glass, rather sweet on the palate but packs a punch at 7.1% very drinkable at this strength and not all boozy. Delicious liquorice and toffee notes on the nose. A very pleasant beer

  8. Sam Dutton

    Not my favourite. (I think I’ve been spoiled by Schneider Weisse.) Big flavour, but mostly quite sweet. I just didn’t get much complexity, or anything much on the nose. Don’t get me wrong — it’s a well-made, easy-drinking Doppelbock. Might have to try again!

  9. James Bryant

    Best drunk on draft on a summer evening where it’s made at the monastery/brewery Kloster Andechs, on a hill near Herrsching beside the Ammersee SW of Munich (you can get there on the S-Bahn). A beautiful place.

    I normally drink a litre, but one evening people bought me two more when I wasn’t really paying attention and although I was a little unsteady when I got up to go I had no trace of a hangover in the morning.

    But even bottled it’s the best dark doppelboch that I know – drink and enjoy!

  10. Steven Nicholas

    Decent enough DB. Dark and fruity but isn’t the smoothest. Alchohol taste comes through quite a bit but still good.

  11. WJ

    Kloster Andechs beers are excellent. if you like bocks but have never tried a dunkel this is a good place to start as it has a pleasant sweetness than most 5% ABV dunkels do not have.

  12. Tobias Gill

    Disappointed. I really like their Heller Bock and I love Doppelbocks in general, but this is lacking in all the interesting flavours that make the style so good.

  13. David Levy

    My beer arrived in very good time and although there was a problem with the carrier it was resolved quickly and without fuss. I have always been very happy using Beers of Europe

  14. Xavier Crepin

    A very nice dunkel beer, malty and easy to drink with a good value price

  15. FoggyMountainMan

    Tough to beat the Lowenbrau Triumphator but this is very good. The best solution is to get a couple of both.

  16. Luke Manley

    Great beer. And good value for money in this category.

  17. Paul C

    Excellent Dopplebock.
    Sweet,malty,spicy with coffee and chocolate aromas.
    Smooth texture, taken slowly and cool rather than cold to appreciate the flavours.
    Strong,but easily drinkable – not for the faint hearted.
