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.

Sweet aroma with fruits in the background: plums, apricots, spicy berries. Pours an amber brown, fairly clear, head disappears quickly. Flavour wise, I found this fairly bland. It's like an embryonic Belgian style ale; it wants to be more but just didn't make it. Mouthfeel is interesting but not overly exciting. Alcohol is present at the end, but finish is flat. Can't really say I was especially impressed with this beer.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 No head. Nice copper colour. Bread and fruit aroma (christmas cake). Noticible alcohol notes. Thick mouth feel. Balanced flavour with no dominate characteristic. Reminds me of a flat Maudite, not overly fond of the finish, it doesn’t invite me back for more.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2003
Salvation in a bottle. Malty, musky, yeasty, and sweet; everything a beer thirsty s.o.b. like myself needs on a crisp spring night as this. I sense prunes and perfection in a fragance that thouroughly intoxicates my soul. Small swigs are a must as I wish to craddle and caress each dark mellow molecule across my thick and drunken taste receptor, and baptise it with each luscious wave. Hops is present, but not begging for attention like some 12 year old sissy boy with straight A's. Forget Jesus, Salvator is a pagan savior more preferable to this barbarous and looting rater of beers.

Good ale with the malt dominant from aroma to flavor to finish. This is not a bad thing, however as the malt is very yummy. Seems to be another layer of flavor I can't quite pin down. Definitely repeatable.

Rich malty aroma and amber color. Sweet and smooth, not too high in alcohol. Malty sweet finish.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2003
Has a dark reddish/amber color with little carbonation and a sweet/fruit/malt smell. Taste is thick, malted and finishes very smooth with a little kick. Overall a great doppelbock!!!

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Beautiful reddish dark amber colour (mahogony). Good sweet and malty aroma with notes of apples and maybe even strawberries. Full body, almost syrup like texture. Flavour is sweet and malty (plums, figs?) along with an alcohol presence and a lightly bitter finish. All in all a good doppelbock, albeit a bit too sweet for me.

Syrupy and sweet, dark brown color, flavor of carmel and figs. Somewhat sweet burnt carmel taste on the finish.
