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: JAN 4, 2013 Lots and lots of malt went into this beer. Many people try to describe the subtle tastes, but if you know what Munich malt is you’ll understand. Well balanced beer hides the alcohol well. Aromas are of figs, raisins, and dried fruit. Finishes sweet and clean. Dark orange color and tan head are pleasing to the eye. Satisfying.

Nice malty carmel aroma. Rich and pretty tasty. Love the density in taste and color. Moderate/sweet after taste. Tasty is apparently the my operative term for this beer. Great buy (quality/price)

The traveller arrived in the village at sundown. A brilliant orange sky lit up the street, and the sound of blacksmiths anvils ringing accompanied his step. We sat late into the evening, talking of old times, smoking our death in pipe tobacco. Such good times could never last, we knew, but there is no great dearth of friendly strangers in this world.

DocLock (9364) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
This is a very well made, complex, wonderful fall/winter beer. Pours dark amber with reddish edges. Aroma of malt, dark fruit, toffee, caramel, and slight corn flakyness. Tastes wonderful, complex, firm, dense, and solid. Complex, balanced, and smooth at the finish, with a bit of a warming kick. World class.

Available on tap at Everybody’s in Atlanta. Nice thick head, malty as all get out. Is sweetish, but that’s pretty much what a dopplebock should be, and it finshes nicely. Not in the same league as Celebrator, but then again, I haven’t had Celebrator on tap. Yet.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2004
On draught at the Draught House in Austin. Medium head with amber color. Malty aroma. Medium to full body. Malt and caramel flavors with alcohol apparent. Some honey flavor, too. Slightly bitter aftertaste that keeps it from being cloying. Nice to drink on a cold winter’s night!!

Dark amber. Dominant sweet malts. Some yeast comes through as a bready aspect. As the weather turns chilly, it warms the belly nicely.

Pours a deep amber with a thick but short lived tan head. Aromas of caramel ,malts, rasins and wood. Nice hints of caramel, raisins, kinda sweet but not overly so, mild alcohol burn. A good fall drink.

This beer is a dark brownish/red color with a moderate head. The aroma is excellent with some caramel, grapes, oak, brown sugar, and alcohol. The flavor is quite sweet with a nice punch of toffee, sour apples, molasses, and raisins. The mouthfeel is quite thick and syrupy. Some alcohol does show through with this beer. This one would certainly be a good one for a cold night. I can feel it, ooooh yeah!
