A Doppelbock is, not surprisingly, a stronger (in both flavors, aromas, and ABV) version of the tradtional Bock.

Most Doppelbocks are deep burgundy to dark brown, although there are Helles Doppelbocks, which are lighter in color. Malt flavors are deeper and more complex, with roasted notes, caramel, dark fruit, and chocolate. Hop levels are sometimes higher than in a Bock, but never assert themselves above the malt flavors. ABV can range from around 9% to well above 11%.

Best served at cellar temperature, 55-57 degrees, and in a pilsner glass, beer snifter, or stange.
