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.

Pours clear amber with a medium bubbly white head. Not much retention though? Fruity-sweet aroma with a hint of hop presence. Thin mouthfeel, very sweet taste. A hint of smokey roasted grains and hop bitterness at the end. Alcohol well hidden.

Clear amber appearence, medium white head. Aroma is very sweet, almost like sweet-tarts candy. Tastes a little sour, bites the back of the tongue, with the primary flavor being corn. Not very enjoyable.

ya know, this beer is the main reason i dont really like doppelbock's. This beer had a great aroma and presence but the flavor was that old import skunky-ish malt flavor with alot of alcohol burn. not my cup of tea. I drank only about half of it, dumped the rest and cracked open a 03' SN bigfoot to make up for it :):):)

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Dark, clear reddish-brown. Sweetish aromas of caramel/toffee, malt, molasses, raisin. More molasses in the flavors, balanced nicely by a roasty bitterness. Alcohol does little to dry out the finish.

An amber color, fairly carbonated and the head lasts about an average length. Very sweet, I tasted and smelled apple. A little carmel in there too. Not at all what I expected from a dopplebock, coming from Celebrator, but very nice.

Glorious medium-dark amber clear with large lasting yellow beige head. Lively woody hops and carmel malty sweet with hint of yeast and alcohol in the aroma. Full smooth low carb body. Big almost lusicious nicely lingering toffee sweet bready malt flavours dominate until a medium bitter less sweet finish and aftertaste kick in. ABV is pretty well masked with all that sweetness. Probably more suited to a colder season but nevertheless a very good example of a Doppelbock.

I purchased this and the Weihenstephaner Korbinian Doppelbock at the same time and I must say that this one, rater slightly lower on average, I find far superior. The aroma is very nice and the copper color is as well. The flavor is full and lovely. A very nice doppelbock.
