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.

bartlebier (1542) - Belchum im Breisgau, - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2013 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.

50cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Coppery brown color, almost no initial head. Medium to low carbonation, but very full-bodied and slightly creamy / oily. Aromas of caramel, dried fruits suchs as raisins and plums. Taste is sweet and coffee bitterness. Extremely long and sweet aftertaste. This doppel bock is such that almost replaces a meal...

Lovely traditional dark amber beer with bitter taste and alcoholic flavor. Much better drink it on tap at Bavaria

Ruby red slightly hazy beer with big blonde head dissolving soon but leaving lacing. . Aroma and flavor have sweet bready malts, raisin, toffee, licorice, earth and herbs. Palate is full and with medium carbonation. Finish is long with a quite mild bite of bitterness, swet malts and some alcohol. A tasty but straightforward doppelbock, more like a strong dunkler bock without the roasted elements.

Dark orange pour, thin head that went away quickly. But good flavor, nice strength.

SlackerMads (1439) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
✝ Bottle. Clear chestnut brown with a large slowly diminishing beige head. Rich malty notes of caramel, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, over ripe banana, light coffee like bitterness in the finish. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Little alcohol presence. Nothing overdone and quite pleasant. More a fan of eating than of fasting, but this could be an ok replacement for food in large enough quantities. ✝

Petkus331 (224) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Aroma of dates and raisins with a touch of bitter paper. Appears clear copper-brown, many streams of fizz rise to the top, white foam, no lace. Tastes sweet, of dates with a balancing paper like bitterness. Palate is fizzy, thick, nice. Overall, nice.

Bottle. Clear red. Bubbly. Sweet malty nose--almost Baltic. Thinnish. Bright body with fruity malts, bread yeast, slight hops.

Thank you to monk Barnabas and the Paulaner Monks for guarding this wonderful recipe. A Deep rick, thick, Doppelbock much deeper than Spaten optimator. Not a reral summer beer unless you live in a area where it g ets cold in the summer like the North coast of California along the shoreline. Would suggest tasting on its own to appreciate its character. Not a typical brew to match with food given the deep thick mouthful,richness and deep warmth after enjoying a bottle. Does come in 6 packs as well as the larger pint plus size bottles which is great . Would consider the brew version of a glass of port after drinking wine with dinner. That last pour for the night .. Might scare off puss Corona extra light drinking man, however don’t assume it will chase off the girls as a he man brew either. German girls at least don’t have a problem with bigger head. A well deserved high 90’s on the rating for the quality over the decades. makes a great present at Christmas for a fellow coworker who enjoys brew.

Sehr malzig und leicht hopfenbetont kommt dieses Bier rüber. Der Antrunk ist eher hopfig und der Abgang dann malzig. Es ist ein schönes, gut bekömmliches Starkbier. Das Etikett sieht ganz gut aus. Fazit: Schmeckt ganz anständig, gutes Bier!
