COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Holy Moly, this is a decent bock. Pours dark amber ruby in color with yellow foamy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of malt and grains. Flavor is same with definite sweet fruitiness that comes through nicely. Alcohol is well-hidden in flavor but the kick is immediately noticeable. Fellow Texans who are accustomed to Shiner Bock really need to try this one for a bigger better beer that better represents the essence of "bock". Wow, I’ll take another of these please.

rlgk (11551) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2003
Copper/orange color, normal head. Aroma is fruity and also there is some kind of candy. Has a somewhat strange falvor, and I dont like this one the way many other seem to do.

Big bubbles in the head, but doesn't last. Copper-red color, very clear. Sweet. malty nose, with a bit of alcohol. Malty flavor, pretty sweet, but just a little thin. The alcohol flavor is evident for a 7.5%ABV beer. This beer warms me after just a few sips.

(bottedl) Red amber color with creamy off-white head. Rich toasted malt aroma with sweet ripe fruit. Medium-full bodied beer with big toasted maltiness, caramel, plum flavors. Firm bitterness (aided by peppery alcohol) cuts the sweetness perfectly, keeping it from being cloying. Very nicely done!

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - OCT 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2003 Bottled. Irregular size bubbles, fizzy light brownish head, fully diminishing. Clear reddish colour. Sweet and heavy malty nose, with hint of dark bread, toasted, nutty, honey aromas. Light hoppy, flowers, weak citrus (orange) note. Floral nose from alcohol. Bittersweet character, full flavor of toasted malt. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Pleasant warming beer.

bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2003
It poured with a nice head but is dissipated quickly. Rich red/gold in color. Strong aroma that tells of the beers sweetness. It's a little too sweet but not bad. It has a good citrus/malt combo that's quite refreshing.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Pours a deep reddish/amber, medium sized tan head quickly diminishes and leaves little lacing. Aroma is very sweet and malty, some caramel, and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is almost overly sweet, a bit of bitterness in the finish, and again a bit of alcohol. Medium body, alcohol gets a bit more prevelant as it warms
