COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2004
Amber red to copper colored body, with a big nice tan head, it looks very delicious. Flavor is very rich with notes of malt, some candied fruits, molasses and a bittersweet ending. Very drinkable and very nice! Aroma is dough, malt, spicy and quite frutity.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2004
Copper colour, crystal clear with an attractive tan coloured head that fades back to just a wisp of creaminess on top. Rich malty smell, some black pepper and alcohol are present as well as some fruit. Flavour is of zesty malt, with some traces of plum. Finish is quite bitter leaving a trace of grass and hay as it fades. Quite good, but carbonation seems a bit harsh for a beer with such smooth flavour characteristics.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2004
Bottled: Bready malt aroma with hints of spice and citrus. Beautiful clear copper coloring. Toasty malts predominate the taste, but more hops than I was expecting follow. Very nice indeed - I do believe I'll take another.

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2004
Aroma is very grain like--almost like cow corn. Malty notes in the nose as well. Pour is a transparent amber color with a decent off-tan head that has decent staying power. This tastes different than the doppels that I am used to. Quite floral taste and lots of sweetness as well in the middle. Very malty. If this is the first doppel, then I should pay homage.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2004
nice amber red with a thick head that dissapated relitivly quickly. aroma was of rich malt and plums with slight toastyness and a little spiced alcohol. Sweet rich malt, dark and light fruit present. warming alcohol and slight flowery hoppiness, and a bitter dry finish.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2004
Often the aroma and appearance of this brew is less than I expect from the style. Does not display a normal head retention for the style, although the carbonation is reasonably active. The aroma goes missing. Mild toasted carmel aftertaste.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
Deep orange brown colour with a light tan coloured head. Caramel, honey, and bready aroma. Caramel sweetness dominates, with some cereal maltiness kicking in and a quick bitter bite on the finish to balance out the sweetness. Full bodied and rich, almost but not quite reaching syrupy.

beastdog75 (363) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2004
Nice reddish amber color. Has flavors of caramel malt, "dark fruit" flavors, alcohol, and some citric hop bite. Not as complex as I was expecting it to be, but still a respectable brew. Reminds me more Sam Adams Double Bock more than any other brew. I like Optimator

Chupa LaHomebrew (12) - Gahanna, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 22, 2004 Wasn't really up to my exectations. OK, so my first doppelbock was an Aventinus, so what? Well, I just thought it lacked that complexity that I look for in a good high Doppelbock. Malty, some vienna or munich in there, a touch of chocolate, hops were low bitterness and came through in a slightly spicy finish. It was good but unremarkable.

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2004
Copper, amber in color. Thin off-white head. Nose of carmel, and malt. Nutty, carmel, taste, with light hoppiness. This beer is pretty good, no complaints.
