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.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Crystal clear, dark orange ale. Medium-sized, fizzy, beige head. The nose is very malty and minty with light notes of dried plums, molasses and alcohol. The flavor is very malty, yet well-bittered to achieve balance. Astringent. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish which leaves one's mouth feeling parched.

Nice reddish color and slightly sweet flavor. Doesn't finish so well, though. I also expected it to be a bit thicker and darker, more robust.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2006 (Bottled, 7.9%) Clear, deep copper/amber color with a smallish, quickly vanishing head. Sweet aroma with burned sugar, alcohol and some roasted malt. Grainy-malty, sweet, slightly dark-fruity flavor with low bitterness, some smokiness, and - despite the sweetness - very evident alcohol presence. Medium-bodied, but somehow watery palate with low but fizzy carbonation, and noticeable alcohol burn. Instead of a hop bite in the finish, this one has alcohol burn. A sweet, watery and alcoholic doppelbock. Not very good. (Bottled, at TOT ’04, was 7-4-7-4-14=3.6) Amber color, clear, flat body. Average, frothy, mostly lasting head. Roasted malty aroma with dark chocolate, lemon, honey and green tea. Sweet and acidic flavor, hints of rye. Slightly sweet finish. Medium-bodied, flat carbonation, dry and oily palate with a slightly alcoholic feeling. Surprisingly light and pale, but not bad.

filtered redish brown beer, not much head, lots of caramel aroma, very malty, sweet, but balanced. A very good bockbier!!

Dorwart (2419) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Nice thick head from the pour. Good carbonation. Aroma is a medley of honey, malt, a bit of hops and some kind of fruit. Slight metallic palate initially then develops into a creamy mouthfeel. Quite nice. Flavor is smooth and sweet with more malts, a bit of caramel and a alcohol presence that increases as the beer warms. Buttery toffee, yummy. Color is a nice deep amber. Finish is warming from the alcohol with a slight hops presence. A good dopplebock. I expected it to be a little thicker than this. Very easy drinking though and worth the time.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Lightly hazy light copper w/ a short lasting beige head. Munich malty aroma w/ some sherry notes. Probably way past it's prime. Also has a light plum fruitiness, hints of roast, and alcohol when it warms. Very malty as it should be; well balanced, raisiny and lightly roasty, however sherry notes in the flavor as well in the finish which is a little on the dry side w/ a caramel aftertaste. Fuller bodied w/a low level of carbonation, smooth mouthfeel w/ well hidden alcohol. Unfortunately, this bottle is way past it's prime and I'm rating this with my past experiences with this particular brand instead of this actual bottle. The age added some unnecessary complexities that were not very complimentary to the beer. This is one of my other favorite styles of beer so I've had this on more than a few occasions and am just getting around to rating it now.

Deep in color with a small head. Sweet and malty with a strong flavor and a hint of the alcohol, though it is fairly well masked. I am not too familiar with the style, but this was rather nice.

Nice copper color with a nice white head. The taste is malty with notes of alcohol. Nice balance in the finish.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2004 A very nice copper/amber color with a predominately caramel and toffee flavor. Sweet, malty nose. The malts can get so sweet at times that it becomes a bit much though. Nice alcohol presence and enough hops to give it a slight bite. A nice beer, although not a huge fan of this style.
