A clarification on “bock” beer — According to BeerAdvocate: Bock is a bottom fermenting (sic) lager that generally takes extra months of lagering (cold storage) to smooth out such a strong brew. Bock beer, in general, is stronger than your typical lager, more of a robust malt character with a dark amber to brown hue. Hop bitterness can be assertive enough to balance, though must not get in the way of the malt flavor, most are only lightly hopped.

Bottom fermenting — Merriam-Webster: a slow alcoholic fermentation during which the yeast cells collect at the bottom of the fermenting liquid, which takes place at a temperature of 4 to 10° C and which occurs in the production of lager beer and of wines of low alcohol content
