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.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
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.

The complex aroma hints at plum, sweet chocolate, apricot, peaches, cherries, loads of sugar and some alcohol. The beer pours a transparent cranberry with little to no head. Flavor is much the same as the nose, with cherries, plums and alcohol becoming predominant as it comes to temperature. My only complaint is the thin, sticky mouthfeel.

ALLOVATE (2874) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2005
Expected a lot more from the first mass marketed ’Doppelbock’. Many other breweries, jealous of the success, named their Doubles in honour of this one, but many of them produce far greater versions of the style. Poured into an ’Aventinus’ glass, a short off-white ring formed atop a clear gusset-amber body. No true head, but it did give a good lace. Woody and slightly nutty, burnt toffee and toasted malt nose. Spicy alcohol phenols gave it a pleasant warming balance in the aroma. Medium light bodied in the mouth, with medium carbonation, it took until it warmed a little to give it’s full character. Burnt toffee and husky grain flavours were dominant, with a treacle sweet front, malt, vanilla and plums across the tongue. Yeast and alcohol phenols came in mid-palate and followed long into the aftertaste, providing a good warmth. All flavours seemed a little subdued, though, as if watered down, but it was still an unusually sessionable Doppelbock.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2005
Sparkling orange, thick fizzy off white head. Nose was toasty and bready, with notes of caramel, cherry, and hints of raisin. Nice sweet caramel malt and dried cherry notes up front, but is backed nicely with a dose of German hops for balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, malty, caramel and cherryish finish. Pretty tasty, but it certainly is not Celebrator...

The bottle poured a crystal clear amber liquid with a small creamy but persistent head that left nice lacing on the edge of the glass. The aroma was loaded with mega maltiness. There was little or no hop aroma to this beer. I also detected notes of plum. The mouthfeel was smooth and full-bodied. The flavor was intensely malty sweet and smooth with a great warming sensation that grew toward the middle and lasted well into the finish.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 This poured clean and ready to be chugged. Was listening to some italo disco while ironing a shirt. Toffee’s, fruits, squeezed into a balance brew. Very enjoyable and smooth. I had an entire bottle of champagne last night after this, but can still taste the ol’ Salvie.

Fukito (1018) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 10, 2005
Bottle Aroma is of raisins and maybe chocolate. Colour is dense ruby, opaque but clear ( hehe difficult to understand, i know). I guess that now i understand why "doppel", really warms although alcohol is not disturbing. An overall fine brew, maybee too sweet for a session beer, but fine to have a glass in a winter night.

Strykzone (6642) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2005
Perhaps the most fruit in the aroma of any beer I have sampled, particularly raisins. The aroma is a hint to the taste which includes toffee along with the rich fruit taste. The beer is very smooth with just a hint of harshness to the palate. Consistant throughout the pint.

It pours a nice amber color, but I expect it to be darker. The aroma is mild, and good natured. It’s essentially a beer that is not offensive, and I expect more from my dopplebocks.

Amber, tall beige head. Malty aroma. Soft carbonation. Immense malty sweet flavour. Roasted malts. Notes of smoke? Uncomplex but well balanced.
