No, not that particular one. All beer names ending with -ator are brewed very strong. It are Bavarian beers
from chiefly Munich and only brewed at certain times of the year (normally the time before easter where
you aren't allowed to eat meat if you are very religious). There may be about 100 of them.

Eisbock means that the beer is very very strong, maybe 10-12 vol % alcohole. Normally the -ator beers are
brewed as Bockbier which means about 7% alcohole.
