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.

One of my favorite beers of any style. Has a nice bready flavor but not overly sweet considering the maltiness.

Beese (1953) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from E.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a clear, dark ruby colour, with a dense off-white head. Aroma of rich lager malt, caramel and spicy hop. Sweet fruits in the flavour, with some burnt sugar and rich grain. Finish was dried fruit, toffee and some resin.

MaBeer1972 (1343) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. Pours out a medium chestnut brown. Light tan head fades to a thin lace. Aroma of sweet malts, plums, brown sugar. Flavor is deep and malty. Alcohol is well masked. Could use a tad more hop balance though. Otherwise solid.

Bottle. Clear copper color liquid with big vanilla color head. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Melon aroma. A bit of caramel in taste. Very alcoholy and sweet. Taste like beer with sugary fruit syrup and vodka.

Awesome dark malt aromas with raisins and cherries. Beautiful mahogany color. Taste is sweet malt with a slight bitter hint from the hops. Well done.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Another great Paulaner classic, the archetypical Doppelbock as invented by the Franciscan monks of Paula and inspiring a whole string of Doppelbocks to bear a name ending in -ator. Tasted from can. Sticky, creamy head, warm deep copper colour; fascinating aroma of caramel, mango, tomato, biscuit, toasted bread. Fruity taste even though this is bottom-fermented, smooth and slick, slight smokiness and toastedness, caramelly, liqueurish, warming alcohol on the finish nearly becoming astringent. A very interesting tasting experience I will not easily forget, as this was my first encounter with this great German lager style.
