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: APR 28, 2003 Clear light amber-copper color with a nice foamy lasting white head, sweet fruity and flowery aroma. Sweet and malty roasty caramel flavors very sweet in the finish, medium body with a sticky mouthfeel, alcohol well hidden, above average dopplebock worth a try always a good choice.

A perfectly acceptable doppelbock, smooth and mouth-filling. Good body. Nice maltiness. Maybe just a little too sweet, though.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Reddish color, thin and quickly dissipating foam. Nose shows instantaneous signs of dark fruit malt, raisin/plum, and a little roasted touch. Smooth layered palate with a tantilizing spritzy carbpnation. Lots of swet malt flavor, shows deep fruitiness, a little breadiness and did I say even more malt. It mellows a little in the latter half, drying slightly but remains predominantly sweet. A barley winesque alcohol warmth develops the longer the beer sits. Maybe the original doppelbock but I wouldn’t put it above Celebrator or Optimator.

Very nice deep golden/bronze color. Pours with big foamy head which dissipates quickly. Nose of malt and caramel. Nice full sweet flavor of malt and fig. Touch of bite on the backend, but by no means is this a hoppy beer. Smooth finish. Overall a very nice beer and one of the best DOLLAR VALUES when it comes to Double Bock.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2002
A nice sweet carmel flavored doppelbock. Excellent dark, reddish color, slight roasted malt flavor I think. Not the best dopplebock I’ve ever had, but quite good.

A very good dopplebock, but I have had better.

Sweet, caramel aroma with no bitterness in it at all. Also a sweet, caramel flavor with some sourness in the finish. Not terribly complex, and not terribly interesting, from my perspective.

argo0 (11729) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2002
The aroma is of intense caramel sweetness. Flavor is dominated by the caramel, but there’s also some german hops, smokiness, and a bit of alcohol. Relatively crisp. Overall, a very good beer.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2002
A very sweet and hoppy doppelbock. Pleasant aroma (spring if you will), dark amber color, fruity aftertaste. Good with Sauerbraten!

Nice and refreshing. This is one of those beers I could proabably drink a lot of, and fairly quickly. Very smooth.
