Subcategory: German Strong Doppelbock
Malty sweetness is dominant but should not be cloying. Malt
character is more reminiscent of fresh and lightly toasted
Munich-style malt; more so than caramel or toffee malt character.
Some elements of caramel and toffee can be evident and contribute to
complexity, but the predominant malt character is an expression of
toasted barley malt. Doppelbocks are full bodied and deep amber to
dark brown in color. Astringency from roast malts is absent.
Alcoholic strength is high, and hop rates increase with gravity. Hop
bitterness and flavor should be low and hop aroma absent. Fruity
esters are commonly perceived but at low to moderate levels.
Alcohol by Weight: 5.2-6.2%
Color SRM: 12-30
Subcategory: German Strong Eisbock
A stronger version of Doppelbock. Malt character can be very sweet.
The body is very full and deep copper to almost black in color.
Alcoholic strength is very high. Hop bitterness is subdued. Hop
flavor and aroma are absent. Fruity esters may be evident but not
overpowering. Typically these beers are brewed by freezing a
Doppelbock and removing resulting ice to increase alcohol content.
Alcohol by Weight: 6.8-11.3%
Color SRM: 18-50
