Bumping this old thread as some of the participants may still be active and have new insight on the subject.

I'm considering brewing a double bock but skipping the lagering part. I don't mind using lager yeast and I can ferment at the right temperature (using a wine fridge), but don't have the patience to wait months for my brew, let alone the nerve to ask my partner to keep our regular fridge at near freezing temperature again (I did that twice for other lager brews, and she almost kicked me out of the house). Is a double-bock-without-lagering worth the efforts? If not, any equivalent ales that offer similar full body and maltiness?

BTW, shouldn't the title be "Doppelbock-like Ale?"
