Weltenburger Barock Dunkel

If you all remember one of the places that the family and I visited before I deployed to Afghanistan was the Weltenburger Abbey Brewery.  I sampled all of their beers except for their Gold Medal winning Barock Dunkel.  Well I rectified that situation.  Here's what I thought.

The Barock Dunkel pours a deep reddish amber with a caramel colored head that dissipates slowly and leaving faint tracings on the side of the glass.  The aroma is one of chocolate and caramel and the caramel theme carries into the taste of caramel and toasted malt.  The beer finishes smooth and is very enjoyable.

I've come to recognize the Weltenburger beers as one of my favorites and if you can find one they are a great introduction to German beers.  And if you can get to Germany it's a great experience to visit the Abbey and sample the beers.  I highly recommend it.

I'm sure Thor would agree?
He and I have the same taste in bikes (cervelo) so why not beer?

Thanks for stopping by
