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.

Pours an orange tinted amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, bread, malt. The taste is similar to the smell with some alcohol coming on at the end.

0,3 draught @ cafeteria in Bilbao. Nice brown colour with decent head. Very easy to drink. Taste is somewhat sweet and malty. Hides very well the high amount of alcohol.

SODAK14 (266) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a nice dark copper color with a small tannish head. Has a strong malty taste, pretty smooth. Don’t think I could drink to many of these with its 8% alcohol content...not a bad thing! :)
