BJCP 2015 Guideline

Amber Malty European Lager Dunkles Bock

BJCP 6C

BJCP 2015 6C Dunkles Bock example
6C - Dunkles Bock

 

Overall Impression

A dark, strong, malty German lager beer that emphasizes the malty-rich and somewhat toasty qualities of continental malts without being sweet in the finish.

Comments

Decoction mashing and long boiling plays an important part of flavor development, as it enhances the caramel and Maillard flavor aspects of the malt. Any fruitiness is due to Munich and other specialty malts, not yeast-derived esters developed during fermentation.

Commercial Examples
