Default Beer of the Week #16

I was going to suggest this for the BOTW las week, but you guy's beat me to it with the Fullers ESB. My suggestion was that because it was going to be Easter, we should try something that the monks would drink in their times of fasting during lent. Even better, one that's named for the holiday and the originator of the style. I'm no monk, and am not fasting, but I think it's still a great time to have a great beer, so I hearby nominate Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock for this weeks Beer of the Week.

That's a terrific idea.
I'm feeling a little inebriated just thinking about it.
We could chase it with an EKU 28

I will go Bock to my beer store.

I have been rereading the Bock book in the Beer Style series, so this will be a book brew to sample. I can also get it on draft.

Did anyone try their Salvator? I have to admmit that I haven't. I've had a bad cold since thursday and my throat has been swollen and my taste has been all off. I want to do the tasting justice, so I'm going to wait until I feel better.

I actually didn't find it, though my 'gourmet' grocery usually has it. I'll check again this week and turn in a late assignment if I find it. Or substitute a Celebrator!

it's great stuff... nice and sweet malt, a heavy beer, with just enough hops to balance it out. i could drink it by the bucket load....
