Paulaner Salvator Double Bock
 
Liquid Bread is right.

Has anyone sampled this brew? I recently bought a case of it and I'm seriously enjoying the heck outta this beer.

I know it's affiliated with Heineken, but WOW.

The 7.9% abv really adds to the experience and makes it hard to just have a few, last night I had 4, the taste is simply magnificent...

I'd like to copy this particular recipe one day.

Anyway, just thought i'd share.

That is a darn fine beer in my book. While no where near a session beer, I never find myself drinking just one.

This is basically the grandfather of all doppelbocks. I'm not sure how much the recipe changed over time, though.

Attenuation used to be a lot lower (around 50%), since the Italian monks who brewed this used it during the advent, to substitute real food. Today's is still quite thick, but still has a higher attenuation. There are a few recipes flotting around the net, haven't tried any though.

It's the beer I judge all other doppelbocks by.

I love this beer! im drinking it right now for the first time. I always avoided it after having sam adams double bock, my first double bock which was horrible! Ne who, anyone got a recipe?

Judging by the color I would say that this beer is brewed with 100% Munich malt. Most likely the lighter kind.

One hop addition at 60 min and you should be all set.

I found it a bit heavy going. Not suprising considering its intent...

Decoction? Triple?

Double or tripple. But that's not key. Fermenting w/o causing too many high alcohols and aging is more important IMO.
