A very strong lager beer traditionally brewed in winter to celebrate the coming spring. Full-bodied, malty, well-hopped. Darker, sweeter, and heavier than typical beers, made for six weeks in the spring from the residue left in the vats before they are cleaned. Double Bock is an even stronger version.
It only takes a few bottles of Sam Adams Double Bock to make me talk funny and fall down.
