Bocks are dark, heavily malted German lagers. The German word Bock meaning Goat refers to their traditional brewing season during the sign of Capricorn. This enabled German monasteries a nourishing liquid during Lent and has since made Bocks closely linked to festivities, including Easter and Christmas. Bocks use bottom-fermenting yeasts and long cold fermentation processes to produce a heavy, but smooth, lager with a good balance of malt and bitterness. For the other senses it has brown and dark amber hues and a malty spicy lightly toasted aroma.
