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.

way to sweet for my taste. It started off with a very appealing aroma and a great deep red color. After that it was all down hill. I would classify this beer as almost chewy, with a hard to swallow aftertaste. Not my favorite.

This rich, reddish copper beer pours with a thick tan head that recedes to a fine layer of foam. The aroma is of roasted caramel, sweet and satisfying caramel. Nice roasted malt character and just a bit of floral hops in the nose. The first sip reveals strong malt sweetness, with caramel, brown sugar , and molasses flavors abounding. A bit of bitterness cleans the palate on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, with mild carbonation. Drinakbility is very good as well, especially for malt-lovers.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Deep redish amber color with a decent off-white head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma. Flavor is rich caramel sweet with dark fruit and a light bitterness. The finish is lightly sweet and slightly acidic. Full body is rich and creamy with moderate carbonation. Nice Doppelbock.

A very enjoyable doppelbock. Amber colored, decent head. Bready and malty aroma. Big sweet malt flavor with a bit of alcohol on the end. Very nice body, slightly chewy. Real good stuff.

deep amber color, thin but lasting head. the bready (slightly sour)malts are there from the start. same in the flavor as well..all malt all the time...are there any hops in this thing at all? finishes with a hint of alcohol..seriously, if malts are what you do well, then by god, sally forth...they're done well here. i've had this once before a long time ago, but felt a rating from my memory of it just wasnt acceptable.

It pours nice clear amber with a storm of bubbles that builds a nice thick sustaining head. The lace slides down the glass quickly. The aroma is of malt and alcohol. Wow, the flavor is big; sweet with a drying finish. There are hints of grain based hard liquor. It is a rich beer that also has nice carbonation. I like this…

Chocolate brown in color with a rich lacey head - the aroma of bread, the flavor of raisins and molasses, a very satisfying brew. Go out and buy some!

Fantastic double bock, by which all others should be measured. Great malty aroma. Full bodied and not for the timid. I would like one more percentage point on the alcohol, but perhaps I'm greedy?

Pretty nice dopple... Malt, nutty, and fruity flavors give it a nice impact, but the aroma is a bit light. Palate is very nice, creamy smooth.

Dark copper with slight reddish tint, minimal head no lace. Heavy malt aroma, touch of banana. Big malt, molasses, light carbonation, ginger, and whiskey (no good). Sticky sweet and medium dry finish. Alright beer, had to pour out half way through.
