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.

An amber hue. nice to look at, nice to drink, by no means my favorite dopplebock. A good strong brew for a frosty winter night or a good frosty on a spring morning.

Bueatifully clear burgandy hue with quickly disappearing off-white head. Pleasant malty arroma, but still subtle. The taste is malty, clean, and lingering maltiness in the aftertaste Makes me want to have another sip.

Not nearly as dark as I expected. Nice malty enticing aroma. Flavor wise, extreme malt followed by alcohol is the first thing that comes to mind. Hardly any bitterness here. Somewhat creamy. Gets maltier as it warms. Even though I now realize that bocks just aren’t my style, I can recognize this is a good beer & would be quite enjoyable to those who are a fan of them.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 one of those beers that suprises you when you first taste it. a unique flavor that i would describe as flowery. its slightly sweet with hints of caramel as well. i was impressed.

Clear and light red. Syrupy looking with a thin tan head. Very appealing aroma of dark malt and raisens and caramel. Thick in body with a bit of an alcohol finish. Excellent malt and fruit and caramel flavor. According to one of the Paulaner Sales Managers, Salvator is only available in the early spring for Lent in Germany. We are blessed with it year round. It varies from 7.2% to 7.8% by the year.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2012 draft@paulaner, my oh my this is really nice! some floral caramel notes, the aroma gets very complicated when the heat gets higher. Candy sugar is quite obvious in taste, incredibly well balanced .... I had a few rounds of 0.5l kegs, I went to heaven .... NOTE this rating is bades on the draft version, I´ve also had this from bottle and it didnt taste nearly as good

Dark amber colour, clear, large head. Aroma of caramel and hmmm...old coins? Strange.. Caramel, malts, warming, bitter, some alcohol. Andechser is better, but this is still very, very good. I like Doppelbocks. Nein, ich liebe Doppelbocks!

Good example of a Dopple bock.. Aroma is malt heavy with toffee and carmel notes, No hops to style. Alcohol warmth and scent. Amber color with solid tan head...Flavor is much the same as aroma....Perhaps carbonation hig for style but not carbonic bite. Full body. Cheers

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Lacks a strong aroma. Nice large ivory head. Clear red. Ultra creamy, excellent caramel and burnt sugar. Not too watery, smacks on the palate of apples. Finishes crisp. A little too much cheerios and sourness.

Excellent beer. Has a smooth warm taste with a very fluffy head. Nice rich medium amber color and hits fast and hard after a long day at work. Whoooooo! :)
