COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Fantastic double bock, by which all others should be measured. Great malty aroma. Full bodied and not for the timid. I would like one more percentage point on the alcohol, but perhaps I'm greedy?

Pretty nice dopple... Malt, nutty, and fruity flavors give it a nice impact, but the aroma is a bit light. Palate is very nice, creamy smooth.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Dark copper with slight reddish tint, minimal head no lace. Heavy malt aroma, touch of banana. Big malt, molasses, light carbonation, ginger, and whiskey (no good). Sticky sweet and medium dry finish. Alright beer, had to pour out half way through.

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2003
Strong sweet, malty smell. Clear red coloured with a lasting head. Taste is strong malty, bit one-dimensional. Moderate bitter palate.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This is awful light for a double bock! Fruity smell. A tasty beer with a nice bite, but not at all what I was expecting.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Red orange hue like a Lake Michigan sunset. Quarter inch tan head. Good nutty smell, maybe prunes as well? Rich flavor, a little bit of chocolate and yet a little sour. Bites the tongue.

niiiiiiice for a doppel. very smooth.. Not sure I could drink more than 3 or 4 in a sitting though. Not quite as good as Celebrator, but definitely more drinkable.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Almost no head. The alcohol shoots through like a sore thumb and does a good job of masking any other flavor. Oily is a good description of the feel. Not sure if I'm a fan of this one. Maybe I got a bad bottle.

verbivore (12) - Sunset Valley, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2003 Pours a nice coppery color. The head disappears in a few seconds. Many people have said buttery or oily, I guess that's where this is. Not like any of the other (decent) doppelbocks I've had, although I'd drink this before the Sam Adams.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Light copper hue and small head and some lacing. Aroma hints of molasses, herbs, honey, ripe pears, and vanilla. Starts sweet but a swipe of alcohol cleans the palate. Fruity taste and aromatic german hops are detected as well. Full-bodied with a oily and soft mouthfeel. Moderate alcoholic feel is present. A well developed bock that sneaks up on you if you're not ready.
