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.

In your face carbonation and over-the-top unique flavour. High alcohol and not that greatly masked but liked it. Need some food to not have to crawl away. Nice brown colour and bubbles. Aftertaste made it nicely drinkable. Chestnut chocolatley toasted malt.

Slightly sweet, very mild hop flavour with a hint of fruit, not a lot to write about but is very nicely made, malty, smooth palate.

I have to say its one of the best doppelbocks I've had so far. A great reddish appearance with a darker thin head. Awesome flavor, hard to taste the alcohol. Something I'd like to try again.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Bottle. Amber color with a thick off white head that is fairly retentive. Nose is of caramel and malt. Taste is highly carbonated and slightly metalic. Notes of fresh bread dough, spice, a little hop, and apple are present. Finish is slightly dry and there is a hint of pear/apple and black pepper that lingers after the swallow. This is not a beer that would blow you away, but it would be a great session beer. I think that tap would be much better, and may eliminate that light metalic taste. Overall, I would have this again.
re-rate. Draft-ark amber body with a thin ring of bubbles. Nose-grape, malt liquor, frat house after a home comming kegger. taste-medium to high CO2, light grape, light metal, lightly floral, cherry Kool-Aid, light slcohol, medium to high sweetness. Kinda white fruit (lychee, grape, etc.), good use of hops, very drinkable even though it is slightly on the sweet side.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2004
Amber red to copper colored body, with a big nice tan head, it looks very delicious. Flavor is very rich with notes of malt, some candied fruits, molasses and a bittersweet ending. Very drinkable and very nice! Aroma is dough, malt, spicy and quite frutity.

JoeMcPhee (8817) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2004
Copper colour, crystal clear with an attractive tan coloured head that fades back to just a wisp of creaminess on top. Rich malty smell, some black pepper and alcohol are present as well as some fruit. Flavour is of zesty malt, with some traces of plum. Finish is quite bitter leaving a trace of grass and hay as it fades. Quite good, but carbonation seems a bit harsh for a beer with such smooth flavour characteristics.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2004
Bottled: Bready malt aroma with hints of spice and citrus. Beautiful clear copper coloring. Toasty malts predominate the taste, but more hops than I was expecting follow. Very nice indeed - I do believe I'll take another.

DYCSoccer17 (3459) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2004
Aroma is very grain like--almost like cow corn. Malty notes in the nose as well. Pour is a transparent amber color with a decent off-tan head that has decent staying power. This tastes different than the doppels that I am used to. Quite floral taste and lots of sweetness as well in the middle. Very malty. If this is the first doppel, then I should pay homage.
