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.

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!

Pours reddish orange, the 1" camel head stays around for a while then poof! it’s gone. No lacing. Pungent honey, caramel apple, and tobacco aroma with nuances of cumin, chalk, and bleach. Flavors of sweet nutty malt, spice, graham crackers, and faint lemon zest. Slight bakers’ chocolate bitterness. Palate is full, rich, smooth, perfect. Strange rubbery aftertaste. Very nice, yet lacks intensity.

Orangeish off-white head which dissapears almost immediately. Orange-red in color. Malty scent with something displeasing. Interesting scent but not something that I’m digging. I like the taste more than the scent. Tastes a bit bitter, with a little aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Thanks Chuck! The appearance is a clear copper body with a thin white head. The aroma is like a peaberry candle that my ex-roommate left at my place. Sweet malty floral hoppyness. Smells kinda like some women’s perfumes. The flavor is much like the aroma but maltier. The palate is typical. 9, 3, 7, 3, 16 = 3.8

Rerate: pours to a clean bronzed orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and caramelized plantains or bananas with a unique yeast and apricot and pear that’s muddled into the background. The flavor has a metallic caramelized bock malt going on with a sweet strawberry seed compote. The palate is sweet and lingering and surprisingly light. 7, 3, 6, 3, 13 = 3.2

a copper hugh w/ a nice white head that dissapates quickly and laces fairly well. scent is sweet & malty hints of alcohol a little floral sugary. Palate is pretty creamy coats pretty well not to much carb. Tastes very sweet a nice thick carmel malt a little dougy floral farily simple flavor but done well. Overall pretty good.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - 16.9 oz] Clear copper pour with a fizzy and quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet with hints of malt, sugar and some vegetables. Very mild flavor with a malt beginning and a middle of brown sugar, malts and alcohol. Very warming on the way down. Not as flavorful as most doppelbock’s I’ve had though.

Bottle into tasting glass. Clear, medium brown with a bit of glow, creamy off-white head that totally diminishes. Not as dark as my favorite doppelbock. Bready, somewhat tangy nose. Warm dark fruit and port flavors, very nice, with great malt sugary body and flavor. Warming alcohol that’s unnoticable in the mouth. Not much breadiness on the taste, which was disappointing. Tangy finish was unexpected and not entirely enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 Couleur rouge rubis, abondante mousse blanche concassée, pleinement diminuante. Arômes très alcoolique, presque de cognac, nous dévoilant plus tard ces raisins secs, pruneaux et malt caramel. Les flaveurs portent essentiellement le grain pour ensuite en venir aux fruits séchés foncés et à l’alcool. Corps moyen, carbonatation légère laissant place à la brûlante sensation offerte par l’alcool. Finale semi-sèche offrant une brève sensation d’amertume venant tenter de contrebalancer le sucre. Bouteille LCBO Mai 2005.
