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.

The color of dark amber or bourbon with a medium, bubbly head, beige. A bit sweet, but not sticky sweet, more like hard candy. Oaky. Molasses, booze, and orange (?) aromas. Nice beer. It hold its carbonation micely for such a high ABV beer. The mouthfeel is cleansing at first, but later in the glass is gets a tad thick (cloying?) and syrupy/sweetish. I prefer the richness of Celebrator anyday, but this is a bargain in comparison at almost half the price.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 Out of the bottle. Nice deep red color. A little sweet and has some chocolate along with yeast. This one the better dopplebocks I have had, but not the best.

This is strong, and a bit too sweet. It has strong flavor and is refreshing, especially if you are about two in already. Not a bad beer at all.

The yeasty flavor and aroma are a bit too overbearing for me. Chocolate sweetness is also evident.

Paid $1.39 for a 12 oz single. Great looking! Pretty amber color, with a big frothy, creamy, almost sexy looking head... I can't see how they could improve the way this beer looks-- unless there were to insert foil sealed packets with hundred dollar bills in them... you get my point =) Sweet chocolate in the armoa... caramel, toast... Reminds me a bit of goold ol' chocolate milk made with the power, rather than the syrup (yuck). Sweet chocolate... a bit too sweet for me. Alcohol isn't masked well, but it's not overly overpowering. The sweetness is really what sticks out. A bit thin in the mouth, but hey... not gonna complain.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Pours a light mahogany colour, smells of candy apples. Heavy toffee, malt and honey notes, sweet but tastefully balanced. Very fizzy. I liked it, but can't see myself drinking more than one (at a time).

Crockett (1027) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Brown, maple syrup pouring clear. Lacey burnt butter golden head. Very pretty. Clovey nose with some roasted malt and coffee. Syrupy body. Pepper and chocolate predominate notes of toffee. Malty slightly bitter. Enjoyable. Don't drink it cold. It really does look like cognac it the proper glass. She's a beauty.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 this is good. not great. this ain't no celebrator, but whatever. amber in color, decent sized head that disappeared quickly. celebrator is the first dopplebock i've ever tried, so maybe i'm ruined... this lacks the depth and richness that i desire, but still good.

Boutip (4999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2004
Poured an amber colored brew with a medium size head. Retention is very average as well as the carbonation. A bit of caramel and sweetness with an above average body. Not the best doppelbock I have tasted but bot bad either.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Crystal clear, dark orange ale. Medium-sized, fizzy, beige head. The nose is very malty and minty with light notes of dried plums, molasses and alcohol. The flavor is very malty, yet well-bittered to achieve balance. Astringent. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish which leaves one's mouth feeling parched.
