  Dogfish Head Brewery...

Release Date: 5/3/06

Dogfish Head Espresso Bock

Our Espresso Bock was made with actual Espresso Beans & 5 Malt Varieties. It is a dark brown color with attractive garnet highlights. The bouquet is noticably coffee-like. The malty-sweet flavor is complimented by the roasty, chocolate notes of the espresso beans and balanced by a medium to full body. Try this delicious offering with our Chicory Stout Rib-eye, our sweet-n-spicy BBQ ribs, or one of our homemade pastries!

Bottom fermented, a Bock beer is named for the famous medieval German brewing town of Einbeck. The style is generally a heavy bodied lager and is darkened by high-coloured malts. Bock is traditionally brewed in the winter time for drinking during the Spring.

Bocks have a long history of being brewed and drunk by Catholic monks in Germany. During the Spring religious season of Lent, monks were required to fast. Bock beers are higher in food energy and nutrients than other beers, thus providing sustenance during the holiday.

Many bock beer producers have displayed goats on bottle labels since Bock in German means billy goat. In the local dialect, Einbeck is pronounced similar to "Einbock", which sounds like ein Bock (a goat).

30 IBU's 7.5% ABV

but alas it's only available in Delaware. *sigh*
sometimes you just have to get in the car a go if it is that good. like Chick-Fil-A. you "Bear" and i drove halfway accross the contry for a sandwich.

but alas gas is outrages. and the time restants are propibitive. so i understand your longing and for the object of your affections
Oh I forsee a road trip in the future, but it will have to wait. I read your ChickFilA adventures. Very cool.
