Paulaner’s brewing history begins with this beer. It was the Paulaner monks who invented this unfiltered bottom-fermented double bock. This beer has been brewed for over 375 years – always adhering to the original recipe, with only a few refinements over the years. The head has a caramel hue and the beer is full bodied with a rich, warm chestnut brown color. The taste is unmistakeable, with its smooth chocolate flavour, robust dark caramel maltiness and a light note of hops in the background – providing a nice intensity on the palate. Often copied but never equalled: it’s the father of all double bock beers!
