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.

Bottle. A reddish-orange doppelbock that sits under a foamy, tan head. Sweet, earthy, malty aroma with notes of toffee and dark sugars. Medium body with a smooth, creamy, moderately syrupy mouthfeel. Rich caramel flavour, with some rye bread-like maltiness present, as well. A woody, earthy bitterness ushers in the dry finish, leaving a lingering, semi-sweet aftertaste. Although this has probably undergone some changes over the past few years, it is still very satisfying.

Red brown colour with excelent head and lace. Huge sweet caramel and malt aroma. This is thick, sweet and absolutely delicious. Malt is king over hops here. Very much my kind of beer.

18 June 2004 - Lovely Fruit malty sweet aroma, lacing on the poor side, but head retention is a little better, red brown clear, but maybe it could be by beer. Smooth hoppy drinkable fruity brew with nice spices and finshes dry with a lingering hop. ver drinkable.

The defining modern example of the dopplebock style. There is simply none better in the world today.

Pours with a two-finger head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Deep, clear amber color. Low carbonation. Nose is malty. Medium bodied. Starts sweet, very smooth, the high ABV is not noticable. $1.90 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

very caramelly and malty. although i was in a rather significant state of intoxication at the point of tasting, it was still pretty tasty stuff. very syrupy but still a tad thin. masks the 7.5% well.

amber with an off white head. Malty, fruity aroma. Tastes like caramel and plumbs; malty. A thin beer that finishes dry.

This one’s underrated. Actually reminds me of a more interesting Bass ale. Terrific mouthfeel and strong malt backbone, with a little fruitiness in there - but we’re not talking about the Richard Simmons type.

I enjoyed this. Very solid body, good malt taste. Little aroma, but long lasting head. Great malty balance in taste. Well done.
