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.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
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.

On draught at gourmet Haus. Rich caramel nose leads to a clear copper with small off white head. Slight lacing. Taste is layers of rich malt. Caramel, bread and toffee bread. Sweetness lingers faintly.

Pint 9 bottle shared. Poured a dark copper color with off white head. The aroma was of sweet malts and plenty of wheat very pleasing to the nose. The flavor was more of the same very nice sweet malt and wheat nicely balanced throughout and quite tasty.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours deep amber with large off-white head. Taste is rather thin for the ABV with a lacklustre maltiness and medium sweetness. Expected more.

A bit disappointing. Nice aroma. Malty but too sweet for my taste. The sweetness dstracts from everything else, which is a shame.
