    The BJCP offers the following style parameters:

    5B. Traditional Bock

    Aroma: "Strong malt aroma...  Virtually no hop aroma.  Some alcohol may be noticeable."

    Appearance: "Light copper to brown color, often with attractive garnet highlights."

    Flavor: "Complex maltiness is dominated by the rich flavors of Munich and Vienna malts, which contribute melanoidins and toasty flavors.  Some caramel notes may be present from decoction mashing and a long boil."

    Mouthfeel: "Medium to medium-full bodied.  Moderate to moderately low carbonation.  Some alcohol warmth may be found, but should never be hot.  Smooth, without harshness or astringency."

    Overall Impression: A dark, strong, malty lager beer.

    History: "Originated in the Northern German city of Einbeck, which was a brewing center and popular exporter in the days of the Hanseatic League (14th to 17th century)...  The name “bock” is based on a corruption of the name “Einbeck” in the Bavarian dialect..."
