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.

Amber with a quickly dissipating head. Malty aroma with roasted notes. Fruity flavor, mostly plum, some spices, malt. Light bitterness at the finish. Round body, with mild carbonation, warms up the mouth. Bittersweet aftertaste stays long in mouth.

Sample taken from 330ml brown bottle. Brownish red hued, fizzy head vanished quickly. Sweet malt in the aroma. Sweetish sticky body, caramel, some spiciness. Some bittereness and alcohol warming in the finish.

AlabastorJones (813) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Clear red body with a thin off-white head, sweet nose with hints of alcohol and fruit, complex sweet flavor that touches on over-ripened fruit, caramel and syrupy maple notes, concluding with with a bitter alcohol finish, I feel like kind of a jackass having this with hungry howies cheesey bread, but I’ve never clamed that I’m not a jackass, and this is after all just the pre-game for the celebrator.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2004
Brown/red with a thin offwhite head which falls quickly. Very fine carbonation. Sweet raisin/malt/alcohol aroma. quite a full bosy, but not as thick as was hinted from the aroma. Some hop to balance, but it doesn’t meld right for me.

Bottled. Big orange head is fully lasting, leaving behind some sheets of lace, sitting on top of a crystal clear, reddish-amber body. Intensely fruity aroma, heavily malted, caramel, fresh berries, apples, light alcohol and yeast--very sniffable, very unbalanced. Full body, lots and fair duration of very soft, slightly foamy, slightly silky, slightly dry carbonation, wet, kind of syrupy(so much malts...). Flavor is intensely malty, caramel, toffee; highly alcoholic, not so much fruity flavor(prune, apple) until it warms some, lightly bitter(citrus, wood, toasty) finish that manages to dry the palate out somewhat after time passes...well balanced, not smoothe. Would be better on draught as it’s nearly flat currently, but what carbonation it does have is lovely, but it needs more of it. Alcohol flavor is too bold, carbonation is off...complex, warming and a sipping beer.

Pours a nice ruby/amber color. Smells of very smooth with very litttle carbonation. Has a slight carmel taste. Tastes kind of like a See’s candy coffee sucker. Good easy drinker.
