“Doppel” means “double” and this style is a bigger, stronger version of the lower gravity German-style bock beers. Originally made by monks in Munich, the doppelbock beer style is very food-friendly and rich in melanoidins reminiscent of toasted bread. The colour ranges from copper to dark brown. Malty sweetness is dominant, but should not be cloying. Malt character is more reminiscent of fresh and lightly toasted Munich-style malt. Doppelbocks are full-bodied and the alcoholic strength is on the higher end.
