The doppelbock (a "double" bock) originated in Munich, Germany as a next generation bock beer. They range in color from deep golden to dark ruby or brown. Like its predecessor (the bock), doppelbocks feature the rich malty aromas and flavors of bready, toasted, and caramel notes. But, doppelbocks are typically more complex and can include dark fruits (plum, prune, raisin, grapes) and sometimes chocolate aspects, especially for the darker versions. Doppelbocks are full-bodied beers and although stronger than the basic bock, they are never overcome by the higher alcohol or by the hops. Many doppelbocks today have an "-ator" suffix attached to their name.
