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.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2004 Previously, I'd sampled a bad batch. This time, I really had my eyes opened. Rich, orange-brown with a sweet caremelly taste. A nice alcohol kick that didn't overpower the nice, and again sweet, aftertaste. When fresh, this is a darn good beer.

Red with a thick head that laces up nicely. Very strong malt and caramel aroma. Flavour is initially half a metric ton of malt which is quickly nailed by enough hops to send a man to the moon. Thin palate. I like this beer.

Draft at Brownies Pub in Philly. Nice beer. Poured a nice brownish color. Had a very good malt flavor to it.

Very thin, wheaty, carmelly doppel. Hints of fruits, esp. cherry. Honestly, my least favorite style, even less than American Standard!

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Totally limpid copper hue with a small off-white head that is quickly limited to a ring. Honest malty aroma with a light floral hops note. Mainly geared toward caramel, white chocolate, cashews, vanilla and not so well-hidden alcohol. Very sweet palate. Hazelnuts and crème caramel, licorice and marshmallows. Interesting flavor profile, but that’s just because I love the style and this one doesn’t have any of the balancing elements (smoke, light bitterness) that top examples like celebrator can boast about. It’s all about the malt which can become rather cloying at the end of the bottle. Smooth creamy medium body displaying particularly low carbonation.
A 2001 sample proposed far fruitier malt, better defined mouthfeel, very soft, more butter traces.
A fresh 2004 sample offered a weird greasier aroma, leathery with notes of beans, mild butterscotch. Off-dry dustiness took on the aftertaste while the palate had this characteristic tart earthiness a little too expressive for me. Body was a bit more powdery and oily Surprisingly, aging seems to help this one although the 2001 was still way short of world-class imo.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Poured a crystal clear copper. Low effervescence. Creamy off white head that vanished surprisingly fast into a lace and ring. Odors of sweet malt, dried fruits with a distinct smoke overtone and detectable alcohol wisp. Starts slightly sweet then gets oily... full of malt, caramel, molassesm figs and nuts....like a plumb pudding... unimpaired by any detectable hop balance until the finish where the herbal bittering shjows up with the light smokey roast coming in. A good brew but a tad too sweet and unbalanced for me..this is the origina;l dopple and still the standard but I’m glad there are more balenced bocks around like Weltenburger.

0.5l bottle. Clear orange with a lasting tan head. Smooth, mellow malty flavor. Sweet and sticky. Slight bitterness at the finish.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Dominated by malt. Reddish-orange color, big but quickly dissipating creme head. Fruity and sweet, almost too sweet, but still good. Slight bite at the end, but dominated by malt throughout as per style. Although not great, it is a nice beer and I will drink it again.

Light brown/tan color, medium-bodied. Sweet caramel, malty, decent. Sweeter finish.
