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.

strong sweet malty aroma, deep reddish/copeer hue with an off white head, strong sweet malty flavour with significant alcohol tones, very sweet finish, too sweet for my liking

Very nice deep amber color with a super creamy-like head thats frothy and very tight. Looked like a lighter whipped cream and was light tan in color and nearly three fingers high. The lace clings in large patches that remain a long time on the glass. Smell is a very buttery roasted malt, like slightly burnt popcorn, but thicker. Is also somewhat sweet and toffeeish. Taste is super subtle of toffee, roasted malt, sweet, and is kinda creamy/silky smooth, a little bit chewy, with a lingering dryness that settles in and goes into the finish, which gets lighter. The finish, again, reminded me of that dry mouth feeling you get from eating dry popcorn. I really liked the feel of this beer, its so complex and layered. The taste is well rounded and has great subtle complexities as well. Absolutely drinkable and enjoyable. Highly recommended as far as dopplebocks go.

I enjoyed this, it was a nice surprise, as I expected the flavor to be something completely different. Very dark in the pour, and appearance, shiny puffy head, with a nice fruity aroma. Heavy malt taste and feel, with hints of nuts and caramel. Very warming in the finish, that makes you just want to sit their for a moment and enjoy what you have just drank, before moving on to something else.

Dark mahogany color with tan head and average lacing. Fruity malt aroma. Trademark dopplebock aroma and a smooth moist mouthfeel. This is a ways behind celebrator, but it still is pretty tasty.

Bottled.Rustic deep ginger/amber colour with lots of interest. My old man back home in Brisbane wants to try a dopplebock and this is what I’m going to take him. Its wonderful complexity. Sweet, sweet flavour. I’m near the end of it now but its been quite different from start to finish. God bless the variety of beer.

We call it "Starkbeer" in Bavaria, very popular among politicians during the "Fastentime" when you are not allowed to eat. It makes you head going round and round and roud and round and...

More red than amber color, yellowish head and big caramel, toffee aroma. Sweet, full flavored and toasty. Delicious. Mellow, slightly burnt finish, like pancakes.
