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.

A bit too sweet for my liking but it doesn’t it make it a bad beer. It poured and orange light color, with a sweet aroma, and light head. This is a decent one.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2004 poured an almost orange/amber color, head was pretty thick but diminished rather quickly. a slight amount of alcohol detectable in the aroma, also in the taste, warm as it goes down. very malty and a nice mouth feel. i give it o perhaps two points over celebrator, it's also .75 cents per bottle cheaper! a very nice brew, i’ll have another.

Orange amber aroma with a thin fizzy head that was gone before I was able to put the empty bottle in the trash. Aroma is very malty with a wood roasted grain tone that is a bit striking. There were also notes of orangey hops. The taste is robustly sweet, with a smoky peaty background supplemented by vanilla, apples, and oak. The hops are floral and peppery, but are definitely playing second fiddle here. The body feels a lot thicker in the mouth than the appearance first suggests. The alcohol is apparent from the beginning, and detracts a bit from drinkability. The father of the dopplebock style does not live to the initial expectation, as it has been surpassed by a more talented child (i.e., Celebrator).

Light brown color with a big tan head. Very malty aroma with hints of bread and honey. Sweet and malty taste with just a touch of bitterness to balance it out. Heavy mouthfeel.

Pours thick with a large head; a dark-orange color. Smooth, malty smell. Rich, creamy flavor, clean with a slight alcohol taste. Very good.

nice clear,dark amber color,good head but faded fast. strong sweet roasted malt flavor like a stout.. a bit to much alcohol for my taste on the finish,,this would be good once in a while but not more than one.

Very nice molasses smell. Orange-ish, brown color, not much head. On my first taste I had only minutes earlier finished a chocolate bar, and the beer tasted quite like strong coffee with alcohol. Not liking that, I waited a bit and tried again. Much better...nutty, smoky, and chocolatey. Alcohol is noticeable in the finish, but is not unpleasant.

Low, fizzy head. Dark caramel coloring. Tastes sweet with roasted malt, with chocolate finish. Slightly spiced, warming effect, with minor finish of alcohol. Pretty good beer for the price. Not my favoritate style, nor my favorite of the style, but it’s quite drinkable. Kinda thin for a dopplebock, but it's not bad. I prefer Paulaner's excellent hefeweizen over most of their other beers.
