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.

Dominated by malt. Reddish-orange color, big but quickly dissipating creme head. Fruity and sweet, almost too sweet, but still good. Slight bite at the end, but dominated by malt throughout as per style. Although not great, it is a nice beer and I will drink it again.

Light brown/tan color, medium-bodied. Sweet caramel, malty, decent. Sweeter finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5338) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 This is a style that I generally tend not to like, especially the bottled version for some reason +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle with a nice label this beer pours a reddish-brown color with a small tan head that lingers. There is a strong scent of vegetables. Smooth, malty flavor with a bit of a vegetable soup element. Slightly biting aftertaste. I had really been looking forward to this as I have enjoyed a number of Paulaner products - but this really disappointed me.

Deep amber color with a small white head. Aroma is bready, malty with hints of plum and brown sugar. Smooth malty with hints of caramel, brown sugar and raisin. Light hoppiness in the finish. Slight warming alcohol feel. A satisfying dopplebock.

JMerritt (1871) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Dark orange colored. Head is white and rather small. Lacing is thin and sparse. Sweet caramel malts, molasses, and brown sugar dominate the aroma. Flavor is thick, chewey caramel with a rather alcoholic finish.

Orange/brown body with a small offwhite head. Rich robust sweet malt, caramel, toffee aroma with some buttery diacetal notes. Malty/ bready taste with a bit of caramel sweetness. Very light bitter on the finish. Wet and refreshing palate that fades to a long lasting after taste.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Solid, but not outstanding German doppelbock prominently featuring the usual sweet, carmely maltiness, with bitterness and hops definitely taking a back seat; Sweetness is perhaps a bit too sugary, but that's a minor flaw; The maltiness doesn't finish well and is on the thin side, with the sugary sweetness eventually bordering on cloying; Higher alcohol content is apparent and is very warming; The abundant aroma is wonderfully malty; Color is reddish copper; Good sized off white head on the pour has good retention and leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass

Deep copper color with an orange hue. Little head but incredible aroma! Sweet caramel malt with toasty/biscuit notes coming through. Very rich caramel maltiness yet manages a crisp finish - not overwhelmingly sweet. Fruity flavors linger on the tongue.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Man, was this a disappointment! Super chemical-fruity nose with some caramel and sharp citric whiffs. Very alcoholic when cold, when warmer, lemon and licorice flavors emerge. Smooth malt underneath with a smooth finish that I did not find cloying. But the flavor combo wasn't the best.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Pours lightly carbonated with a clear almost orange body and a gorgeous tapioca head that lasts long enough and leaves a web of intricate lacing. Aroma is of malt, yeast, and alcohol. Smells rich, fresh, and warm. Has a smooth malt flavor with some nice German hops in the finish. Nice mellow alcohol flavor reminiscent scotch. Overall this is a delightful beer that I could drink a lot of in a short time.
