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: MAY 21, 2005 Had on tap at a local bar. Aroma is very sweet anf fruity. Color is a nice amber. Flavor to me is extraordinary. Full of dark fruit and sweet malt. Ive heard people say its too sweet, but its not for me. One of my favorites

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Pours a nice brownish copper color with a pretty good head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is a bit musty and sweet. Taste is full, almost thick... of caramel with nice spicy aftertones. Slight alcoholic warmth. Good, not great, as palate does not fully develop, which is really the only thing holding this one back.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Pours a light brown with aromas of bread yeast and sweet malt. Flavor is very rich in caramel/toffee malt and bread with hints of roastedness. A little light on the palate side of things but very enjoyable.

CEZ (412) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 30, 2005
Deep amber body, medium off-white head. Fragrant aroma with caramel, burnt sugar and butter. Strong malt sweetness with notes of bread and butterscotch. Smooth mouthfeel, rich taste, long, delicious, slightly bitter finish. The original doppelbock and still one of the best.

On tap. While this is better than most other beers, it is a disappointment when compared to others of the same style. For a doppelbock (or even for a single bock) this is a somewhat weak, watery brew. All the correct characteristics are there, just at about 75% of what they ought to be. If for some unlikely reason this is the only malty beer on the menu it’s not bad, but if you have any other choices I’d go with those first.

Poured a mostly ruby color with a small off white head. Malty aroma and flavors. Fruity, raisins, caramel, and light alcohol. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.

highlandlad (1470) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2005
The original double bock makes a decent nightcap but it’s a little too sweet and coarse in the finish for my taste. Poured a burnt orange colour with a rocky 1.5 cm head that settled quickly, leaving a little lace. Aroma is of hard candy, toasted malt and toffee. Medium-to-full body with an oily mouthfeel. The flavour is malt-driven, with sweet toffee-like notes, some fruity acids and a big slug of rummy alcohol in the finish. Needs a cold night to be at its best. Alcohol is too prominent for my palate. (330ml bottle, best before April 2005)

Bottle, dated 7/04. Purchased at Walt’s grocery store, Homewood, IL. What else should one drink on Easter Sunday? Still very much the beer that sets the style. Pours a deep copper color, no haze, and a thin head. Has a heady caramel smell and taste, almost like a settled barleywine. Mouthfeel is a bit thick, with notes of maple, rum and plums. Just a little touch of bitterness on the tongue, otherwise a nice sweet, warming and drinkable Lent-breaker.

Bottle, at home. Red with off-white head, quickly gone. Aroma of sweet bread. Flavor bitter of sweetness, light of hops. Medoium body, creamy, flat carbonated. Too sweet, not in balance.
