3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 50cl bottle(s) - Poors a less than inspiring translucent red-brown with modest beige head. Nice light roast and caramel, light-medium mouthfeel, distinct notes of alcholic burn and slight ethanolic fumes = not brewed down to perfection imho. Not unbalanced, drinkable, but disinterested in brewing anything more tasty than a traditional (60s70s80s80s) Doppelbock for the traditional palate. Initial Rating Date: 1/28/2013. - - - Rerate on tap in München 03/2015: gentle plum and pudding and soggy brown bread go gently into faint milk chocolate and plum jam and maroni caramels. This is the time for Starkbierfests where gentle beer connaisseurs are gently sipping their 1L mugs of this stuff at the Nockherberg and by 9pm are gently bashing their own and each other’s heads in. Not sure if I could even stomache a full Maß of this Doppelbrick...

Kolor: bursztynowy, lekko zamglony.
Piana: obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, trochę strzela, ale dość wolno opada.
Zapach: wyraźnie słodowy, chlebowy, sporo aromatów ciemnych owoców, rodzynek, melanoidyn, aromatów opiekanych, lekkie akcenty chmielowe, niestety niezbyt świeżego chmielu.
Smak: pełnia jak na ekstrakt i styl, dość lekka, smukła, sporo nut słodowych, chlebowych, trochę ciemnych owoców, melanoidyn, lekko opiekanych, lekkie akcenty chmielowe, niska goryczka.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

From Carrefour. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 3x01. Typical profile of the style. Maybe not the best example but nice enough, cheap and easily available in supermarkets again.
