Doppelbock

English Pronunciation: daw-pull-bock

(Translates to "double bock") This beer is a stronger and usually darker version of the Bavarian Bockbier. Exceptionally malty with little bitterness. Standard Doppelbocks have as much as 7% alcohol by volume. The strongest versions are around 10 to 13%. It is one of Germany's most popular and strongest beers. Doppelbock emerged in the late eighteenth century as a powerful lager variant of the old monastic strong beer, which they traditionally brewed for the Lenten season.
