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.

Color marrón oscuro. Espuma no muy persistente. El aroma es muy suave, de maltas. Sabor dulce de maltas, frutas maduras, algo de alcohol. El final es ligeramente amargo, con un toque de regaliz. Buena doppelbock. Muy bebible.

Piana średnio obfita, głównie średnio pęcherzykowa, raczej nietrwała, kolor lekko beżowy. Barwa piwa rubinowa, klarowna. Koronka uboga. Dominuje aromat palonego słodu, odrobina karmelu. W smaku gorzkie, mocno palone, jest jakaś słodycz gdzieś z tyłu, którą ciężko mi zdefiniować. Goryczka ściągająca, lekko zalegająca. Na języku szerokie, wysycenie średnie. Lekko czuć alkohol.

pours a perfectly clear light brown colour with a white head. light malty aroma but not very prominent. Very malty taste, hint of liquorice. very rich. Not as heavy as I was expecting and SO easy to drink!! Fantastic beer

330ml bottle at home in a tulip glass. The aroma was toffee, apple and sugary sweetness. The flavour is sweet malt and yet lightly sour at the same time. I found an oaky note not sure if this beer ever saw oak but it tasted that way. Top drawer.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2014 Not ordinary doppelbock! In tulip glass, reddish brown colour, clear, Wonderfull strong palate. Possible to drink everyday, which is not the characteristic of that kind of beer. Absolutely delicous.

corkyrory66 (702) - BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2014
Bière allemande qui est un « dark double bock beer » selon le brasseur, à savoir un doppelbock. Titre à 7,9 % abv, et 18,3 ° balling, ce qui est beaucoup pour l’Allemagne. Couleur ambre roux moyen, très joli. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale assez vives. Mousse qui est un nappage beige moyen simple. Arômes de malt grillé et cara, prune blanche, candi, cassonade, pointe de muscade. 1ère bouche de malt grillé, pain gris, petite pointe de poivre, muscade. Arrière-bouche sur un alcool de fruits. 2ème de prune, pointe d poire et pêche, amandes séchées. Arrière-bouche plus piquante sur un petit genièvre. 3ème avec un bon ensemble plutôt épicé. Arrière-bouche pas très équilibrée. La longueur donne des fruits, épices, candi, pointe de liqueur, de façon assez disparate, sans harmonie vraiment et sans aucune complexité. Très linéaire. La levure est basique. L’alcool n’aide pas vraiment aux saveurs. La finale n’apporte rien de plus. CONCLUSION : une bière de strict moyen de gamme, sans aucune valeur particulière. Agréable sans plus.

Pours a brown colour, taste is malty, quite sweet and oily on the palate, good, but the reputation is bigger than the beer
