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.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Pours a light mahogany colour, smells of candy apples. Heavy toffee, malt and honey notes, sweet but tastefully balanced. Very fizzy. I liked it, but can't see myself drinking more than one (at a time).

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Brown, maple syrup pouring clear. Lacey burnt butter golden head. Very pretty. Clovey nose with some roasted malt and coffee. Syrupy body. Pepper and chocolate predominate notes of toffee. Malty slightly bitter. Enjoyable. Don't drink it cold. It really does look like cognac it the proper glass. She's a beauty.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 this is good. not great. this ain't no celebrator, but whatever. amber in color, decent sized head that disappeared quickly. celebrator is the first dopplebock i've ever tried, so maybe i'm ruined... this lacks the depth and richness that i desire, but still good.

Boutip (5856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2004
Poured an amber colored brew with a medium size head. Retention is very average as well as the carbonation. A bit of caramel and sweetness with an above average body. Not the best doppelbock I have tasted but bot bad either.

hopscotch (10563) - 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.

raymow (1395) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2004
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.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2004
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.

brewbear (48) - 3096 Oberbalm, SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2004
filtered redish brown beer, not much head, lots of caramel aroma, very malty, sweet, but balanced. A very good bockbier!!

Dorwart (2522) - 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.
