Pronunciation guide for
One of four German beer taxes categories.
Starkbier literally means "strong" beer. All beers with an extract
value exceeding 16% are Starkbiers. Their alcohol level is invariable
above 5% and rarely more than 10%. Though many beer styles fall into this
category, all Starkbiers combined hold only a 0.7% market share. All Bockbiers,
Doppelbocks, and Eisbocks are Starkbiers.
