Kloster Andechs Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel

I’ve sampled a lot of beer here in Germany. I go to the grocery store and grab almost every single kind of beer they have. I skip the ones in plastic bottles, but the rest come home. Sometimes I drink them warm. Sometimes I drink them cold. Depends on how I feel that day, really.

Throughout this experimentation, I’ve never been amazed. German beers tend to be very similar to each other. Sometimes a beer will be a bit stronger than average, or have a particular quality that shines through (maybe better to say “peeks through”), but it’s never very far away from the average.

So you can imagine my delight when I tried this one. Rich and delicious. I’m sure I had several other adjectives to go along with it, but I drank this almost 3 weeks ago. But even though I don’t remember what it really tasted like, I do know it was the best German beer I’ve had yet. Really quite great.

    Kloster Andechs is a real gem! Should you ever make a trip to Munich you can “hike” to the Kloster in about 45 minutes. they have a huge beergarden and everybody there speaks English 🙂
    But, dear James: Doppelbock or Bock beer is stronger than regular German beer and therefore there is a special season for this beer called Starkbierzeit. In Munich, it’s always sometime in March for 2 weeks. You should check out the Starkbierfest 🙂
