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.

Creamy beige head on a clear deep amber colored body. Fruity and malty aroma. Sweet malty flavor with plenty of fruit. Nice bitter finish. A full and very smooth beer!

Georgus amber, deep copper colour. Mild malty fruit aroma but a full smooth flavour with a nicely lingering bitterness. Will buy a few of these to have around.

Full head, beautiful red color. Not as heavy as expected for a double bock, but very good overall. Unfortunate that it's only a seasonal.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 lots of malt and caramel on the nose, fantastic ruby/copper colour, huge malt flavour with lots of caramel, hints of pepper and citrus. fantastic creamy, buttery mouthfeel with long lingering bitterness which complements the malty flavours superbly.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Huge malty aroma with notes of caramel, molasses and yeast apparent. Very clear copper cloured beer with dense small bubbled head that lasts fairly well. Sweet malty flavour with a sugary/yeasty middle and a dry alcohol finish with a lingering bitterness. Alcohol is very apparent in the flavour but not in a bad way. Very smooth mouthfeel with medium-full body. Bottle.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
Light copper colour. Very fragrant dense head. Heavy toasted malt flavour balanced well by a hoppy finish. I'm a big fan of Paulaner after visiting Munich. Their beer continues to amaze (... except for that Hefewiezen, but that was probably just me:)

VAYankee (333) - Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Pours clear and light brown in coloring with a tall white head. Strong malt aroma with a bit of yeast and caramel included. Tastes like malt, bread, and faint fruitiness. Leaves a mildly dry, mildly sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 April 2007. Dark amber brown body, moderate beige head. Malty aroma has a bit of alcohol presence. Flavour is similarly quite malty, lots of caramel malt flavours. Booze is restrained, but quite prominent on some sips. Not super complex, but has a very pleasant simple sweetness that was quite nice paired with a beer and molasses basted ham. Serving chilled mitigates the alcohol presence somewhat. Shared by Tuqueboy. 7/3/7/3/15 - 3.5 <P>December 2003. Dark amber colour, not much in the way of head. Aroma and flavour are malty. Finish was lackluster. A pleasant but unexceptional doppelbock that may have not have stood up well to the chocolate I had had not too long before. Will have to try another one now that the LCBO is carrying bottles of this. 5/3/6/3/13 - 3.0

This is why I love doppelbocks. And supprisingly, it's the first time I've had a Salvator. Beautiful pour with less of a head than I was expecting. Cloudy copper color. The scent seemed to pour out of the glass as I poured; a very strong smell of malt. Man can you taste the malt! But it's wonderfully balanced by the hops! What a mixture. Carmel and toffee tastes linger. A heady sensation coats the tongue making me crave a cigar. A Partagas Serie D No. 4 would *really* hit the spot right now. A very enjoyable beer. I could only have about two of these pint-sized bottles before I would be done for the night, though, but man what a night it could be.
