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.

Pours a clear mahogany with an inch thick lacy tan head. Smells of fruity malt, caramel. Earthy and touches of vanilla and raisin. Tastes...like a dopplebock. This was my first doppelbock ever and when i think of doppelbock, this is the taste I use as the standard. Very malty with caramel and molassess, tart fruitiness and earthy. Woody. A lightly smoky and woody aftertaste. Velvet smooth and very drinkable. One of my all time favorites. Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to review it.

poured a nice amber color with the typical bock aroma....taste was very hoppy for a bock... with a bland after taste...all in all....a decent beer

Aroma of raisins, dried figs, roasted caramel, yummy. Cloudy amber-brown color with a tall off-white head. Flavors of dried fruit, roasty caramel and noticable alcohol. Warming and smooth. Lightly creamy, very lively mouthfeel, dry finish. This was pretty good.

(Bottle 50 cl) Salvator is THE classical doppelbock. Nutty brown with a disappearing head. Very dry and malty (three malts) - some caramel. Excellent, sweetish bock although better are found. 311099

orange/caramel colored body with a cream colored layer of head that laced the sides of the glass. aroma is yeasty and malty, sweet with lots of caramel notes. alot of caramel malts up front backed up by some moderately bitter hops, which is the lingering aspect of this brew. definitely not as good as a number of dopples that ive had

Pours between a light brown and a dark amber with a nice tan head. Aroma is malty sweet and complex. I get a bit of spiciness in the flavor. Slightly thin in body. A very good beer, but this is not my favorite.

Red-orange with brown tones. Dense beige head. Fruity aroma with notes of apple, banana, fudge, spungecake, ryebread and spices. Peppery flavor with notes of alcohol, fudge, vanilla, butter and some sweetness. Fruity. Low bitterness.

After all the reviews I’ve read, I was expecting this to be some kind of nectar. Hmmm, well, it wasn’t. I’ve got five more bottles to drink, and I hope to have my initial impression changed by them. From a doppelbock, I had expected more complexity, more depth, and a denser mouthfeel. Malt and hops dominated the aroma and the taste, pleasant enough, but it was nothing like the rich roasted darkness or chocolate-spice-raisin taste you might expect from a much touted d-b. Mind you, this is a nice-looking, very drinkable beer. Indeed, it is really pretty in the glass -- nice light-tan head, though not very long lasting, and a lovely red-brown color. Really easy to drink as well but too hoppy and light-feeling to stand with its superiors. This is a "light" doppelbock!
