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.

Clear red/amber color. Head quickly vanishes. Very low carbonation. Light aroma of carmel and molasses. Flavor is mostly malty. Smooth and creamy finish. Pretty damn good.

Copper orange, smooth, almost oily looking diminishing head, leaves good lacing. Smells very sweet, malty, almost slighty belgian fruity, a little alcohol and hops aroma too. Tastes really malty, some hops, a bit more of the 7.5% ABV, some bitterness to balance the sweetness, a little roastiness too. Smooth and full in the mouth. Would try again. Nice beer.

Medium clear amber with a medium head, distinctive musty sweet, malty caramel aroma. Pleasant mouthfeel, sweet candy with a punch of alcohol, some bitterness to balance the finish. A very decent dopplebock, enjoyable.

SpringsLicker (3221) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Salvator has beautiful deep amber color and supports a creamy off white head that sticks around. The aroma is not too overpowering but very richly malty, some alcohol. Perfectly balanced hops and malt. Nice Doppelbock.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Cola colored, diminishing off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, roastiness, caramel. All of those in the flavor, with some dried fruit and a tiny bit of grass. The alcohol, while remaining in the background, comes out a little as it warms. Full-bodied. I like this a lot.

Dark amber in colour, an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, slightly alcoholic. Flavour is sweet, syrupy, notes of brown sugar and maple syrup. Nice transition to a bitter finish. Oily palate. Pretty good. Bottle.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Huge, frothy head with a lot of bubbles coming up the sides. Alomost, soda-like. Definate candy/carmel smell. Pretty good. Tastes of carmel and maple syrup. Good thick malty taste.

Disappointing. I think I wrote in my description of Andechs that I preferred Salvator but now that is definitely not the case. Smells OK and malty - some honey on toast. A touch of diactetyl but in a good way. Flavour is thin, I remember it as being thick and malty but not so. OK balance but that's not what a doppelbock is about really.
