According to Wikipedia:
Bocks have a long history of being brewed and consumed by Roman Catholic monks in Germany. During the Spring religious season of Lent, monks were required to fast. High-gravity Bock beers are higher in food energy and nutrients than lighter lagers, thus providing sustenance during this period. Similar high-gravity Lenten beers of various styles were brewed by Monks in other lands as well. It was rumored that Martin Luther drank this beer during the Diet of Worms.

I’ve laughed out loud a number of times looking over this. Thanks for the chuckles.
As you can see by the image above, I’ve chosen “Bock of Ages.” I hope St. Martin would approve. (I think he would. And I’d be interested in learning about this Diet of Worms… *grin*)
