Style: Doppelbock
Style Information
Doppelbock (translates to "double bock" in German) is a Bavarian beer style that was yet another German style to find its origins by being brewed by monks in centuries past. Along with bocks in general, it was considered "liquid bread" by the monks in times of fasting.

The color should range from dark copper to dark brown, but can sometimes be somewhat pale. The aroma should have have a very strong malt sweetness present, with toasted grains notable. Alcohol aroma may also be present. Finally, there may also be hints of chocolate and dark fruits. The taste should also center on the malts, with toasted bread notes and a somewhat notable alcohol taste. There should also be a semi-sweet or outright sweet malt taste, and very little or no hop flavors. The feel should be full bodied. ABV ranges from 6% to 10%. IBUs should be fairly low between 17 to 27.
