Editor's note: Formerly known as "Hornbeer Doppel Bock".
Danish: Hornbock fra Hornbeer er en undergæret øl af den stærke slags med omkring 7 pct alkohol. Vi har tilladt os at trække denne bokøl lidt i retning af vores egen smag. Det har vi gjort ved at anvende lidt mere bitterhumle og en smule røgmalt. Ved du forresten hvorfor det hedder en bockøl ? Det skyldes efter sigende, at det er en stærkere øl. Den vildskab som denne øl kunne give anledning til hos den bockdrikkende person, giver så associationen til "gedebukken". Hornbock er brygget på 6 forskellige bygmalte, humle, vand og gær. Hornbock passer fint til det danske frokostbord med marinerede sild og rugbrød.
