Free State Invigorator Doppel Bock

Doppelbock

RateBeer Score    80 Overall  

This is a very strong , German style lager. The word doppel literally means double, but it's not really a "double" strength bock beer. It is stronger than a regular bock though and also heavier and more full bodied. The high alcohol content gives a warm fullness to the flavor and accents the somewhat sweet character of the beer. The Doppel is started with a base of Pilsen malt. It is colored and flavored by caravienne, caramunich and special B malts. A large portion of Munich malt is used for its distinctly German flavor and aroma as well as a little aromatic malt. Finally there is some carapils to add to the full body. The doppel is also flavored with moderate amounts of Yakima perle and German Hallertau hops to balance the malty sweetness. Though the IBU level is pretty high, almost that of Copperhead, this is not a hoppy beer. It's just that it takes a lot of hops to balance out such a malty beer.
