Commercial Description

Our doppelbock (German for
“double bock”) celebrates the style originally developed by medieval monks. Living by the strict rules of their order, monks were regularly
required to castigate themselves by periodic bouts of fasting, when next-to-no solid food was allowed to pass their lips. The longest and most
taxing of these periods of culinary abstinence was, of course, Lent—the 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Because the monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the body but also the soul, they would make plenty of “liquid bread” instead of solid bread from their grain and then drink it in copious quantities... the more, the holier.

    It starts like a doppelbock should, dark brown color and a big creamy head. The nose is basically just dark, sweet malt, but it’s huge. Lots of dark sweet malt in the flavor, along with nuttiness and bittersweet chocolate. Almost no hop presence, but that’s fine with this style. A little bit of wood and alcohol warmth. Bit of a sweet and dry finish. And a very late sour hit. This is one of those that’s great to drink or to sip and savor. Overall, an excellent beer. Very good example of the style.
