COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

After reading about this many times I couldn’t wait to try it. I know the Germans and Belgians can brew some very deceptive beers but this just didn’t live up expectation. Teak in colour, a little malt and raisin on the nose. Full bodied and fruity as expected but too heavy throughout. Bottle from Beers of Europe is in good condition but I’ve been drinking Worldwide ales now for over 20 years and this doesn’t float my boat. Personally I prefer the smoked beers, but each to their own...

MaBeer1972 (1292) - 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 (1347) - 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.

Muggus69 (1181) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2014
330mL bottle BB 05/15 Another beer had on numerous occasions, yet haven’t rated...madness. Anyhow, pale ruby body, decent clarity, holds a small beige head. Nice rich aroma; toasted nuts, lots of dark caramel, cocoa, and subtle dark fruit undertones. Texture is quite interesting - not quite thick & rich, not quite dry, carbonation somewhat higher than expected. Palate delivers some upfront burnt toffee with plenty of nutty malt & bitter cocoa. Plum undertones lead into a rather dry finish with a reasonably high bitterness and lingering minerality. A nice beer, perhaps lacking the punch of the best in the style.

lobs_ols (78) - LATVIA - AUG 24, 2014
Crimson on the eye, medium white head. Malt, caramel, and notes of alcohol on the nose. Smokey, with caramel, cellar and malt on the tongue. Warn malty finish. Good.
