Style: German-style Doppelbock
Color: Copper Brown
This is a very strong, full-bodied lager beer. Doppelbock is the strongest of all German-style beers. Roasted malts contribute color to this beer, but the flavor is that of milder, sweeter malts. Alcohol content is quite high, and hop bitterness is just sufficient to prevent the malt sweetness from being cloying. However, hop bitterness is perceived as being low, while hop flavor and aroma are barely present. With 11 pounds of malt extract, we don't skimp on ingredients for this one! (There are a lot of weak doppelbock kits on the market.) This is a very strong beer so the flavor will improve a lot with age, especially for the first 6 months. Store the bottles at room temperature for at least 2-3 weeks while carbonation develops, then move them to a cool location if you have one available.
