Doppelbock

DROPINATOR

There is a tradition in Germany of naming this style with the same last 4 letters….ATOR. Legend has it that a Franciscan order of monks first brewed a very strong beer to sustain them during their fasting, and called it “Salvator” meaning “saviour”.

Doppelbocks are strong, alcohol and malt flavors dominate, hops are gently balanced, and hop aroma is light, almost non existence. They tend to finish with some sweetness, fruity esters are dominant, and some rich raisiny full bodied character is always there.
