Other Information

An extremely dark coloured double-bock beer for both stout beer lovers and the beer connoisseur. Extra long and cold storage in our monastery cellars makes this double-bock beer a really special beer with medium hops and lots of malt with a mild sweetness – reminiscent of malted milk, marmalade and caramel.

  1. Stujago

    The best doppelbock I’ve tried thus far. It has the classic sweet, dark fruit, plum and roasted flavours but what seperates it is how smooth it is. Nice texture to it.

  2. Anna

    A very drinkable German dark beer. I have been to this brewery in Freising and was so pleased to find a company back at home from which I could order this bottle and their Vitus wheat beer too. I would definitely give these two a go.

  3. Charlie Johnson

    Dark sweet rich fruity plummy chocolate caramely malty , so so smooth… a taste sensation, love it!

  4. John Hawkins

    This is a very nice strong (7.4%) dark beer. Similar in style to the excellent Kloster Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel, though perhaps a little less sweet. Definitely one to order again.

  5. Pete Saunders

    A complex dark ale with a decent head. Figs, plums and ripe bananas with some nuttiness. Very little bitterness and a bit too sweet for my liking.

  6. Alexey Nekhaenko

    Great doppelbock, fruity and rich

  7. Gavin H

    This has to be one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted, and that’s a lot of beers. Dark, chocolatey, fruity and spicy like a classic ginger cake. An almost black shade of red and a creamy head which gives way fairly quickly. Alcohol-driven and strong, but not too bitter. Reminds me of Theakston’s Old Peculier in the pre-S&N days, but that might be a “false memory” – anyway, this is superb stuff and definitely one to enjoy.

  8. Kristin

    This beer is complex and just lovely. I like the taste of stouts but generally find that they are not sweet enough. This beer has some characteristics of a stout, chocolate, caramel , fruity flavours and a perfect sweetness

  9. John Sanders

    The look of this beer when poured is absolutely beautiful – really dark brown which almost glows deep red with the light behind it, and with a huge velvety head which lingers for as long as you have the patience to let it. The smell is really malty with that ‘freshly-baked bread’ aroma that is so typical of great Doppelbocks. The taste is chocolate, dark fruits and more malt. If anything, it is perhaps just a little too sweet for my palate, but my wife simply adores it – so my 4 Stars is overridden by her 5.

  10. Chris Meechan

    A very dark, sweet malty wheat beer. Very rich and smooth with hints of bread. So easy drinking for the abv. Fantastic!

  11. Kris

    This beer packed a wallop – in a good way. So much depth of flavour to enjoy while gently sipping through

  12. WJ

    Deeply flavourful, lots of coffee notes with hints of chocolate. Only slightly sweet, quite indulgent and definitely one for a cold winter day.

  13. Tobias Gill

    great flavours (bread, coffee, chocolate). a really beer of this type.

  14. FoggyMountainMan

    Wow!!!!! I thought the Vitus was the the jewel in the Weihenstephaner crown, but this must be.. Dark fruit delight. An absolute must.

  15. Luke Manley

    Very nice beer. Would buy again.

  16. Jamie K

    One of the best doppelbock’s I’ve had. Really drinkable and goes down easily. Definitely worth a try and I’ll be ordering more

  17. Paul C

    Sweet, very dark with a smooth texture.
    Caramel,coffee and fruit flavours and predominantly malty.
    Similar to a very strong stout.
    For me, Vitus the best in this category.

  18. Steven N

    Quite sweet but well balanced. Some coffee, caramel and liquorice overtones. Very pleasant beer.

  19. Steve Bruce

    This has a bit of oomph to it !. I get coffee and dark chocolate tastes, its almost like a stout but maybe less sweet than that. I like this, i need to try more doppelbocks.
