The Paulaner Salvator with its strong,typically malty taste is the original Paulaner. The bottom-fermented Doppelbock-Bier unites the finest hops and dark barley malt. The Paulaner monks served Salvator as a replacement for food at Lent. Their most famous brewer was Brother Barnabas, who was the head of the Paulaner monastery brewery starting from 1773. Its original recipe is today almost the same as it was in Barnabas' time. In order to protect the original recipe, Paulaner had the trade mark "Salvator" patented in 1896.

Brown/red with a thin offwhite head which falls quickly. Very fine carbonation. Sweet raisin/malt/alcohol aroma. quite a full bosy, but not as thick as was hinted from the aroma. Some hop to balance, but it doesn’t meld right for me.

Bottled. Big orange head is fully lasting, leaving behind some sheets of lace, sitting on top of a crystal clear, reddish-amber body. Intensely fruity aroma, heavily malted, caramel, fresh berries, apples, light alcohol and yeast--very sniffable, very unbalanced. Full body, lots and fair duration of very soft, slightly foamy, slightly silky, slightly dry carbonation, wet, kind of syrupy(so much malts...). Flavor is intensely malty, caramel, toffee; highly alcoholic, not so much fruity flavor(prune, apple) until it warms some, lightly bitter(citrus, wood, toasty) finish that manages to dry the palate out somewhat after time passes...well balanced, not smoothe. Would be better on draught as it’s nearly flat currently, but what carbonation it does have is lovely, but it needs more of it. Alcohol flavor is too bold, carbonation is off...complex, warming and a sipping beer.

Pours a nice ruby/amber color. Smells of very smooth with very litttle carbonation. Has a slight carmel taste. Tastes kind of like a See’s candy coffee sucker. Good easy drinker.

Lovely color and nice tan head. Aroma is spice and malt and some others. Ok mouthfeel little to sparkly for my taste. Has a nice bittersweet flavor with a good long lasting aftertaste.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Aroma is sweet dark fruits and malt. Amber in color with a slowly diminishing, two finger thick, tan head. Fore is bready and malty, but has a slightly tinny note. Lots of caramel flavor. Has a hearthy and wholesome baked sweet bread feel to it. Finishes with warm bracing alcohol that leaves the throat dry and tingly.

Very malty, rich flavor. Although I like this beer, I generally will only buy it if Celebrator is unavailable.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2010 Pours a cloudy, orangey amber with a frothy, cappucino like head. I hoped it would be as good as Celebrator, but was skeptical. Nice malty, fruity, bready aroma with a hint of banana. The flavor was the same with some apricot and some warming alcohol. The palate was fair and overall typical of the style. Finishes with a slight metallic twang. Nothing extraordinary but all in all a nice offering.

Poured orangey amber, thin head...smells very sweet with a nondescript candy smell...definate alcohol in the finish though...

Great beer! Nice body and wonderful after taste (almost toffee-like). Amazing with burgers. Cannot find in Nova Scotia
