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: 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.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2003
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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2003
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.

Not crazy about this doppelbock. Carmel, tart, and bittersweet flavor. Finishes dry and malty.

Had from bottle February 8, 2003
A friend recommended this beer to me, and I'm glad he did. It pours a beautiful amber-brown with slight carbonation and a small head. Aroma is sweet with a bit of alcohol, but not too overwhelming. Taste is malty with a little bite of alcohol, but nothing too strong. A fine beer and a fine recommendation.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Poured a beautiful leather colored body with a light tan head. No lacing.
Aroma had that wheat-ness to it. Maltiness and wheaty is the only way I can describe it.
Nice crisp flavor of malt. No hops present but the alcohol had a nice warming effect. I took the bite being more from the wheat than hops.
A bit of a bite on the tongue from the wheat, but that's perfectly acceptable.

This is a damn good beer, but it is light for the style. Thin by comparison to other dopples and not as dark. Great aroma that is typical with this style. I like it, but there are better choices.
