Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock
Style: Klosterbrauerei Weltenburg
Format: 500ml Bottle
A strong, dark Doppelbock that´s more than meets the eye. Malty-aromatic, sweet, pleasently heavy, with an intensive fragrance and strong flavour; a world known specialty just like its baroque namesake, the brilliant painter and architect Cosmas Damian Asam.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Strong, hearty double-Bock - dark, malty and rich
This quite surprised me - the easy-going straw-coloured Bock is a Lager style of its own, but "DoppelBock" it much more aromatic, dark and malty like a Porter/Stout, with the extra fermentation and 7% alcohol content making it a real kicker. Even though this isn't hopped, there is a hint of hop-like bitterness and aroma to compliment the rumbly roasted malt. It's like a good strong Porter with something extra, one to enjoy with a friend who appreciates subtle deep flavours in strong speciality beers.
