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.

More red than amber color, yellowish head and big caramel, toffee aroma. Sweet, full flavored and toasty. Delicious. Mellow, slightly burnt finish, like pancakes.

I had this on draught in Germany a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. This sample was a 12oz bottle that poured crystal clear brown with a thick tight head that dissapeared in a couple minutes leaving only a few tiny dollops of white foam. Only slight lacing as well. Aroma is super sweet and malty with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is also very sweet and nothing but malt. It improves as it warms and flavor loses a little sweetness. Not nearly as impressive as when I had it on draught but a fine Doppelbock none the less and probably the best German Doppel out there.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2003
A dark amber witha hint of rose. The head is off white. The aroma is of sweet caramel, alcohol and a hint of nuts. The flavor is full of sweet toffe and alcohol.

this medium bodied beer is dark amber in color. the cream colored head lasted only a moment and gave way to basically nothing. a burnt sugar nose continues on to a malty sweet taste, followed by a little bitter aftertaste. this beer is a mouthful!

deprogram (114) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2003
12 oz. bottle Deep burnished copper colour, massively malty nose. Foams prettily with a vigorous pour, but is quickly subdued. The taste is heavy and sweet but finally balanced with a prickling bitterness. A most hearty beer, with plenty of character (albeit of a malty nature).

Light nut brown, much lighter than I am used to from a dopple bock, but then again this is the original so does that mean the rest are wrong? Anyway, good malty aroma, with some nuts and sweet caramel. Flavour is very sweet, with some pears and light nuts. A slightly spicy finish sits well on the palate, but I didn't enjoy this one as much as some others.

Reddish brown almost burgundy color. Has no head. Smells sweet. Taste sweet and alcohol. Has the wet dog flavor. Warming down the esophagus.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2003
The aroma is sweet and fruity. The color is a deep amber with a small disappearing head. The flavor is sweet with notes of juniper berries. A very nice beer, but not a good as Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel nor Carlsberg Bock.
