This is a more pale (heller) version of a traditional Dopplebock. While pale in color, it is high in ABV, with a great mouthfeel. Like all bocks, this is a malt forward lager, but with the use of German heirloom (Barke) barley, there is a complex malt quality that isn’t just sweet, but smooth and grainy with a traditional German grain profile that can be hard to find this side of the Atlantic.
A Bavarian specialty first brewed in Munich by the monks of St. Francis of Paula. Historical versions were less well-attenuated than modern interpretations, with lower alcohol levels (and hence was considered “liquid bread” by the monks). The term “doppel (double) bock” was coined by Munich consumers. Traditionally darker in color; paler examples are a fairly recent development in comparison to the other members of the bock family.
