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.

sudomorph (1008) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
Draft at Beer Bistro. Pours a hazy caramel orange with a thin, off white head. Aroma has great notes of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, bread, apple, and other fruits. Taste is slightly sweet but balanced. Caramel, bread, dark fruits, toffee, apple and fruits, and a drawn out, slightly brown/candy sugar ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly syrupy in the mouth. Overall very nice. Dark fruits, dark sugar, and fruits.

Fisler (332) - Bamberg, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016
Dunkelrotbraune Färbung, sehr behäbige Perlung. In der Nase eine tolle Malzigkeit, Karamell. Im Trunk setzt sich das fort, dann alkoholisch, wenn auch nicht zu sehr, süßlich, leicht holzig, leicht kirschig. Schöner Absacker.

Ritzn (71) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle from the supermarket. I heard that the tap version is quite different. This one is ridiculously sweet. After a strong taste aroma experience (that is hard to describe... the sweetness overtakes it all) a long finish with some bitter pepper and smoke notes follow. Also some booze. The whole combination seems very one dimensional and didn’t please me so much. However I look forward to trying this from the tap again...

cervmagpt (569) - PORTUGAL - FEB 8, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 9A - dark). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: malt predominant, with moderate Maillard notes (bread crust) and slightly toasty aroma. Some alcohol present with a slight peppery note. APPEARANCE: medium to dark ambar color and clear. medium-low beige head, creamy, with low retention. TASTE: predominant flavor of bread crust (Maillard), toasty malt and a faint caramel-like note. low bitterness with an almost dry finish. no hop flavour discernible. PALATE: medium to medium-full body with a slight velvey texture. moderate carbonation. faint alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a good and traditional Doppelbock well within the style. Does not exhibit optional notes as dark fruits among others.

nephirem (107) - CROATIA - FEB 7, 2016
Pours clean dark amber color with small off-white head. Smell is sweet and very pleasant; toffee, caramel, herbs. Full body with medium carbonation. Thick texture. Bittersweet and somewhat boozy taste. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, caramel, herbs, flowers, cinnamon. Aftertaste is mostly boozy and combines the sweetness of malts and caramel with burning sensation of alcohol. Very rich and nicely balanced. Overall, great doppelbock. Recommended.

Acid303 (652) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - FEB 7, 2016
33cl bottle, served in Lagar glass. Pours amber/brown with small white head. Aroma is based on sweet malts, very caramel-ish and licorice forward. Strong licorice taste along with caramel and hints of fruits. Quite sweet on the palate as usual in this kind of beers. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad.

leduardol (104) - - FEB 6, 2016
Bem avermelhada, pouca espuma, aromas intensos de torrado e doce com pão bem marcado. Cerveja de alto corpo, FG e maltês torrados bem perceptíveis. Álcool muito bem inserido e atenuado ao paladar frente aos 7,8%, sensação de cerveja "nutritiva" (verdadeiro pão líquido). Amargor balanceado,inclusive no retrogosto. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

psilosophy (636) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016
Bouteille de 50cl. Couleur rousse, mousse abondante mais de tenue assez faible. Des arômes très caramélisés qui débouchent sur un mélange d’ herbes aromatiques( à la Jägermeister ). La carbonnation est un peu tristounette, çà doit être plus sympa à la pompe. Trouvé à V’nB’ - Noyelle Godault.
