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.

Syrupy and sweet, dark brown color, flavor of carmel and figs. Somewhat sweet burnt carmel taste on the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew pours a very nice malty caramel aroma from a transparent light brown body with a medium head of fine to medium sized bubbles. It has a slightly fizzy initial mouth feel followed by a very nice smoky, slightly burnt, chewy full bodied spicy flavor. This is one of my favorite brews of all time. Next to Andechs, it was my favorite Doppelbock while I was overseas in Germany. Its high alcohol content can be felts even after just a few sips. It goes down very easy. I love it!

This is a very complex beer and a bit hard for me to rate as I consider myself still somewaht of a novice beer geek. The appearance is copper in color, almost rust color. It poured with a nice thick heat that took about 3 minutes to disappear. Aroma is malty with fruit and a bit of alcohol. It tastes a bit like a barley wine - sweet, fruity and alcohol but nicely balanced with malt and hops - that is to say not overly fruity which really turns me off. It leaves a nice malty, caramel aftertaste that is also a touch sour from the fruityness. very drinkable and enjoyable.

A very strong malt sweetness and it tends to overwhelm the other flavors. I prefer other double bocks but not a bad choice. the alcohol is well hidden.

Not always in the mood for one so syrupy sweet. I sure was this time. Been a while since I've seen this old friend. The malt richness coats the bitterness so that it slides across your tongue. Dark as it may be the roast characters lie beneath as well. Plum, raisin and perhaps other fruit. Felt like I had a nice desert mixed with my beer after dinner. Certainly not as sweet as all that, but switching gears from some substantially bitter IPAs it sure seems so.

This beer is a amber colored beer with a fruity smell. It is slightly bitter at the first taste but leaves a sweet aftertaste.

Reddish-brown with pinkish hue. Apple sauce aroma with caramel and anise. Head was not substantial. Great mouthfeel and flavor, though difficult to pinpoint. Broad palate - sweet, tart , full, a touch bitter, fruity. Some minty notes, with plenty of malt and fruit. Finish is sweet, but hops present in sufficient quantities to temper this nicely.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 Golden red body and a quickly dissipating white head. Light aroma of caramel and malt. Low carbonation, very smooth and sweet. Tastes of caramel and banana. Pretty good beer, although I do prefer Celebrator.
