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.

Thick and strong. Feels like drinking bread almost. Roasty but with sweetness rather than sharpness. Buttery. Head disappears fast. Overall a good Doppelbock but not perfect.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2002
Aroma has raisin and porto. Full bodied beer, sweet and malty. Porto, peach and hopflavors. Alcohol present. Well made doppelbock with a good flavor, but no specific characteristics that makes it a classic.

Amber coloured with decent head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel notes. Flavour is sugary, caramel wiht some alcahol in the end.

Very sweet beginning but a very sour finish, like an overly ripe fruit juice with malt. I may have bought a bad bottle.

Has a nice malty base - rather sweet but with a slightly sour finish. Faint hints of smoke. Kind of unbalanced to me - the malts kind of collide. MY sample was a rather old bottle though, so I will re-rate if I can get a more recent product.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2002
Bright dark golden color with a light tan head. Nose is quite maltily sweet with hints of smoke and brown sugar. Body is very sweet with notes of brown sugar also carrying throough. Alcohol is present as well as what I like to call notes of haylage. Finishes slightly hoppy and sweet. Much too sweet, which made me glad that I had to share this 500 mL bottle with my buddy, now that doesn’t happen very often.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2004 The colour is surprisingly light but still very fine with a quite big head. Loads of malt in aroma and flavour. Woody and bitter finish. A great and classic Doppelbock.

Mmmmmm. Malty goodness. I really love nursing a beer like this. Great color, complex, amazingly balanced for the depth of flavor. Tuff Stuff to the max, dudes and dudettes.
