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.

A small bite on the back flanks of the tongue. Has a typical Belgian stench... yum! A slightly charred malt tinge. Covers farts nicely.

Bottled. This looks lovely: red, frothy and fragrant. But it's just too sweet, making the big alcohol aftertaste a little sickly. The mouthfeel is a bit sludgy too - I guess this just isn't the kind of beer for me...

Sweet smell: grapes, figs, sour hops, slight yeast. Watery brown colored body with abundant bubblage on sides of glass and a big eggnog colored head on top. 2 dimensional taste that starts fruity with malt, grape and apple juice on the palate. The flavor then turns to a spicy hop finish and a bitter coffee taste. Aftertaste is alcohol and grape. Flavor is a little watery in all aspects. Sampled at cellar temperature. Purchased at Whole Foods in Vienna, VA.

12 oz bottle. Big malty beer, not much hops, don't taste the alcohol, but you do feel it later.

Large ass tan head, nice lacing. Deep amber color, clear. Grainy, fruity nose, some raisins and fresh baked bread. Full body. Slick mouthfeel, but still chewy. Medium sweet malt, bread and some alc. notes with some toffee flavors also. Finish is sweet with some roastiness. A nice double bock.

Salvator is the origianl that other dopples strive to imitate. Malty and smooth without being overbearing.

Nice amber color, head quickly recedes, leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is very malty, maybe a touch of alcohol. Fantastic mouthfeel, a little alcohol burn at the end on the palate.

Reid (2276) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2003
The beer pours a nice deep copper/red colour with a fine 3 quater inch head which dissapates down to a lace on top. The aroma of this beer is excellent..i loved the strong malt..very very nice. taste is warm and rich..but for such a stong beer..not too "alcoholic"..very smooth on the tongue with a nice lingering aftertaste in the back of the mouth. Warming as it goes down This is a very drinkable Double bock..one would need to be careful of how much is consumed because I am sure this will get you tipsy very quickly..but overall I loved this beer..

Means "the Saviour" so already we're in for an interesting ride! Chocolate brown in color. Smells like raisins or molasses. (Would be interesting to baste a ham in this stuff!) At 7.5% packs a punch. A thick, rich, creamy head. Spicy aromas. Tastes a little like Pumpkin-Fresh Baked Apple Crisp. Creamy, strong and lingering finish. Good, but I think I enjoy the similar Celebrator Doppelbock an the Spaten Optimator better.
