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.

Cold fall in Ontario, I am a bit sick my self ... Well this is my number 600. Nice clear amber color with white thick head that sadly did not lasted to long. Aroma of sweet cherry wood with addition of raspberry. Nice and warming. Warming and intense flavours. Alcohol blended well with caramel, creamy, a bit nutty. Nice for cold windy fall season.

Re-Rate 10/02. On tap this was a fine brew. Creamier, not as sweet definately better than bottled.Will add a couple points. Not even close to Celebrator. Decent beer but if your looking for a good brew rather than lifting your ratings drink Celebrator.

Superb balance and complexity. Sweet like it should be. Eminently drinkable, yet bittersweet.

By far and above the best Dopplebock I have ever had. Not overpowering in the sweetness keeping a more quenching drinkablity that keeps you taking another swallow. Pours outt a dark caremel color with a small head and a fiant sweet burnt sugar smell. Taste starts out sweet like the average dopplebock but finishes with a refreshing cleanness that I haven’t found with any other. Great beer I recommend it to all.

Deep amber w/ no head. Aroma of caramel and some apple (hidden deep within). A nice well-balanced beer that takes you by surprise (who would think a doppelbock would taste like this). Nice and malty w/ hints of caramel and apple. Backblow was very flowery. A Belgian on the stronger side of good.

Re-rate 10/04/02: A clear deep amber color, the head is frothy, beige, the lace is thick and clings to the glass till the very bottom of the glass. Nose is malt, caramel, woodsy, and quite pleasant. Start is sweet, the top is medium, the finish is quite dry, acidic, well hopped and a great beer and always in my ’DBF’. Ranks #349 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Orange red color, medium head. Very malty and robust. Complex flavor, rich and flavorful. Malty and somewhat appleish and nutty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is malty. There is some alcohol bite, not to harsh. Nice beer.

Nice doppel. Not overt with the roasty/molasses flavor. Copper color, awesome label. once it gets warm the vomitous flavor creeps in, but you soon forget. Doppelbocks arent exactly my forte, but this would be good in that RARE time. Good for the beginners. Also...nose was great with like roasted nuts and molasses.
