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.

Malty aroma, nice amber body color. Head lasts long and thick with a cream color. Decent lacing. Goes down smooth.

Nice ruby-amber color and relatively light head of a tan tint. Strong fruitcake flavor and aroma from all that malt, with the slightest amount of hops on the finish. Seems more like a beer to have along with cheese, crackers or some other snack food. Quite cloying on the palate, but with food this wouldn’t be as important.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 Deep amber color. Aroma is subtle and darkly sweet. Thick and rich flavor. Earthy and semi-sweet with slight coffee/caramel presence. A bitter sweet finish that pleasantly lingers. [$7.99/6pk]

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle. Pours a bright amber with white head that leaves quickly. Smells of apples and cider. Tastes semi sweet with a bit of bitter in the end.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Bright copper colored beer with somewhat shortlived white head. Aroma is sweet and bready, which is found again in the flavor, but with some alcohol. A sweet but tasty classic.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Fairly carbonated head has decent longevity; reduces to thin off-white head with medium bubbles. Sparkling clear light amber color. Attractive malty aroma- with slight alcohol scent. Very smooth texture leaves mouth slightly velvety. Well balanced doppelbock.

Malt aroma with a honey sweetness. Dark red body with off-white head. Rich malt flavour with just a hint of hops in the aftertaste.

Instant caramel sweet aroma even from the bottle, a little thinner that I expected when poured. Huge head that I wasn’t quite ready for. I can barely notice any presence of alcohol, if this is 7.5% you could probably get a buzz quick because of the sweet inoffensive character of the beer. Half way finished with the glass and I don’t agree with this cloying as it warms it’s just not thick enough to be overpoweringly sweet. There is a slight bitternes trying to fight through but it is quickly squashed on the palate by carmel malt. I wish I would have tried this before I tried a Celebrator Dopplebock. It’s like visiting Colorado after you’ve seen Alaska. Still, this is a good beer that I could easily see buying/drinking again and could also be enjoyed by many who are not into trying and rating beers. Too thin to be great.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Bottle. Sweetish, rusty sunset orange offering from Paulaner. Definitely needs a good chill to keep the malty profile in check. Done deed, this is a pleasant, rich brew from the old weissbier guys at Paulaner. The 2006 bottle is way better than 2005 as I remember it -- in fact, superior to a degree that I had to rerate every single parameter. Last year, I found no reason to push this higher than a 2.4 total -- reaching a respectable 3.1 now, I’d say something remarkable has happened.
