by Klosterbrauerie Weltenburg

The amazingly beautiful Weltenburger monastery brewery sits on the bank of the River Danube around 100km north of Munich in Bavaria.  It has to be one of the most beautiful settings for a brewery anywhere in the world.

The monastery also lays claim to being the oldest monastery brewery in the world with a recorded brewing history dating back to 1050.  Not surprising then that they know what they are doing making their beers!

They are one of the more commercial breweries that we feature, and their beers are widely distributed, and certainly not hard to source. But that doesn’t mean their beers are anything less than outstanding.

In case you are new to the style, a bock is simply a German strong lager.  And a doppelbock is a bigger version of strong lager.  Our Asam Bock pours a beautiful dark brown, with a good head that gives off aromas of dark chocolate, toast, dark stone fruits plus a little coffee and hint of nuts.

To taste the beer is sweet and inviting, but not cloying at all.  It is like a rich warm blanket of tasty goodness for your tongue.  Sweet malt and dark dried fruits like prunes and raisins, dark chocolate malt with the bit of astringency to balance out the sweetness, hints of coffee and something earthy and woody.  There is a lot of flavours to enjoy and they all work together so well.  Sit back and savour this.
