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.

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.

I had this on draught in Germany a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. This sample was a 12oz bottle that poured crystal clear brown with a thick tight head that dissapeared in a couple minutes leaving only a few tiny dollops of white foam. Only slight lacing as well. Aroma is super sweet and malty with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is also very sweet and nothing but malt. It improves as it warms and flavor loses a little sweetness. Not nearly as impressive as when I had it on draught but a fine Doppelbock none the less and probably the best German Doppel out there.
