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.

Cola colored beer with a smallish head. Aroma is dark malty with some fruity sweetness, plums maybe and a bit bananas. Some caramel too, dark bread and alcohol. Taste is sweet bready malts, syrupy and malty, some alcohol. Oily texture with lower than medium co2. Quite a lot of alco in the finish with some bitterness. Not my style of a beer, but works rather good nevertheless. Somehow the alcohol feels a bit high on this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark copper color, a bit hazy, thick off white head dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, faint grains and spices. Taste is nice toffee, caramel, light vanilla. Faint bitterness finishes this off on the palate. Medium body, high carbonation. Really a great tasting beer. My first of this style.

2010 bottle more of an experiment really. 330 ML bottle Amber orange color, thin white collar. Nose is pear, apple, malt, caramel. Nose has held up well for the age. Very slight hint of oxidation. Taste is jimmy, lots of fruit. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Has held up well for the age. Not an intended experiment but worked out well.
