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.

11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a murky copper color. An incredibly fluffy head (about two fingers high, off-white in color) tops it off with amazing texture,and mediocre retention. As it fades away, some lacing is left on the glass. S: My very first whiff of this brew made me wonder if it were lightstruck - it was a bit skunky. Once it warms up in the glass, however, it smells less like a skunk’s ass and more like the dying presence of German hops. Also of note is plenty of caramel and brown sugar. T: I pick up more in the way of dark fruits than I did on the nose, especially when it first hits the palate. The general flavors are caramel and brown sugar. I also get an apple note, distressingly similar to a macro lager - if I had to pick my least favorite part of the profile, this is it. On the plus side, I’m surprised how hoppy the finish is given its proximity to the 11/13 best-by date. It honestly does a good job of cleaning the palate up, and also provides a nice bitter-ish balance. M: Like I said, the finish is drier than I anticipated - and that’s a good thing! It helps to balance the syrupiness without killing the rich feel. Carbonation is low, but that’s because I let it sit for a while before drinking. O: A solid doppelbock, but it lacks the defined complexity to be a great one. Would drink again, though.

RaijinSen (360) - POLAND - OCT 20, 2016
Pours tea colour with a medium, decent head. Aroma of breadcrust, caramel, cake, some raisins and red fruits. Quite sweet in the taste but by no means cloggy, alcohol well hidden, medium herbal bitterness. The flavours are again caramel and cocoa biscuits. Tasty beer of malty profile.

Mild coca aroma with a roasty body and a smooth milky body finish is clean. Great doppelbock, but not as good as optimator.

Good Doppelbock. Pours deep amber (like tea) with small head. Sweet malty aroma and taste. Drinkable despite it’s ABV.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2016
Thick, dense cream head over deep clear amber beer. Intense, coloured malts’ nose, sweet bread, very powerful. Autumn leaves. Bitterish taint on top of all the former. Good, noble hops and not in a small dose. Even a tad metallic; breadcrust. Medium to well-bodied, slick, even slightly sticky; low carbonation. A classic, well deserving its moniker of liquid bread. Had no idea I hadn’t it covered on RB yet.

klukas (125) - Rijeka, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a stem glass. Appearance: Blurry reddish brown colour, with rich but short-lived dirty-white/yellow foam. Aroma: Vanilla, caramel, roasted malt, grains, alcohol. Palate: Watery; medium carbonation. Taste: Banana, caramel, alcohol and sweetness which turns to bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Solid beer for enjoyment; not a thirst-fighter.

Pours a hazy caramel brown with a thin light tan ring. Pleasant aroma of sweet malts. Very smooth with a medium body. Tastes of caramel and toffee flavors. Not harsh or bitter. A slight alcohol tingle on the tip of the tongue and a smooth warm finish. Pretty enjoyable.

Pauliner's Salvatore: has a unique dark rich taste that is often described as "liquid bread," it a hearty beer that can be a mini-meal by itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33l bottle. Pours clear copper, a finger of almost tan head, medium retention. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toffee, dried fruit. Tastes sweet, some bitterness, caramel, plum marmalade comes to my mind. You can feel alcohol, but it’s not annoying. It just adds some warm feeling. Body is quite sweet with almost oily texture and average carbonation. Some bitterness in the finish. Well balanced, proper late evening comfort beer.
