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.

Nice copper color with a nice white head. The taste is malty with notes of alcohol. Nice balance in the finish.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2004 A very nice copper/amber color with a predominately caramel and toffee flavor. Sweet, malty nose. The malts can get so sweet at times that it becomes a bit much though. Nice alcohol presence and enough hops to give it a slight bite. A nice beer, although not a huge fan of this style.

Creamy beige head on a clear deep amber colored body. Fruity and malty aroma. Sweet malty flavor with plenty of fruit. Nice bitter finish. A full and very smooth beer!

Georgus amber, deep copper colour. Mild malty fruit aroma but a full smooth flavour with a nicely lingering bitterness. Will buy a few of these to have around.

Full head, beautiful red color. Not as heavy as expected for a double bock, but very good overall. Unfortunate that it's only a seasonal.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 lots of malt and caramel on the nose, fantastic ruby/copper colour, huge malt flavour with lots of caramel, hints of pepper and citrus. fantastic creamy, buttery mouthfeel with long lingering bitterness which complements the malty flavours superbly.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Huge malty aroma with notes of caramel, molasses and yeast apparent. Very clear copper cloured beer with dense small bubbled head that lasts fairly well. Sweet malty flavour with a sugary/yeasty middle and a dry alcohol finish with a lingering bitterness. Alcohol is very apparent in the flavour but not in a bad way. Very smooth mouthfeel with medium-full body. Bottle.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
Light copper colour. Very fragrant dense head. Heavy toasted malt flavour balanced well by a hoppy finish. I'm a big fan of Paulaner after visiting Munich. Their beer continues to amaze (... except for that Hefewiezen, but that was probably just me:)

VAYankee (345) - Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Pours clear and light brown in coloring with a tall white head. Strong malt aroma with a bit of yeast and caramel included. Tastes like malt, bread, and faint fruitiness. Leaves a mildly dry, mildly sweet aftertaste.
