Missing Links' Big Bang Bock

Brewed since the 1300s, bocks are one of the oldest styles of beer.  Originating in what is modern-day Germany, bocks are a type of strong lager, similar to a marzen.  Traditional bocks are lightly hopped, and have an ABV around 6-7%.  A traditional bock is sweet, clear and caramel colored.  Bocks are “lagered”, or brewed…
