Now I'm trying to clone it, but it's realy hard to find the exact recipe since the company seems to sell 2 differents beer with the same name (one for europe and one for america).
In Germany, bier intended for foreign markets is called "Export". The usual difference with Export is that it's lower ABV than the bier intended for the German market, usually to meet the laws of the importing jurisdictions. In Germany, ABV in bier is not regulated but most of it is around 5,5%. Anything that ends with "ator" is doppelbock, and is usually 7,5% or higher - Terminator, Celebrator, Perminator, Alligator, you name it.
