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 (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, - JAN 28, 2013
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...

Pours a nice amber with a quickly fading medium head. Not usually a fan of doppelbocks, but this has changed my opinion. Has a bit more going on than your average American doppel. The balance of malts and sweetness was refreshing. Aroma was rather weak but a nice smoky malt.

Listigovers (874) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Brown colour opaque and super malty smell. Chewy palate, sweet, big caramel, a hit of warming alcohol at the end, drinks like a meal.

Couleur ambré foncé; mousse beige; arômes et goût maltés et fruités (fruits rouges); l’alcool est trop présent; bière un peu trop douce

Medium frothy off-white head with good retention. Hazy brownish amber. Weak aroma, roasted sugar. Taste is roasted sugar and spicy (clove) with some alcohol warmth. Bitter finish and some crispy palate. Full body.

Night_Cap (86) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2016 Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a clear copper with a red tint. Head is off-white, averaged sized and lasts well in the glass. Aroma is of lightly cooked brown sugar, dark plums (ripe), dried cranberries, toasted brown bread, chocolate, caramel and a pinch of cinnamon. Flavour is exceptionally smooth (especially considering the ABV) with a light bitterness, lightly toasted malts, wholegrain bread, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, tea leaves, a touch of chocolate and a (white) peppery finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a good length, warming finish. An amazing Doppelbock in every sense – not to mention suburb value for money!

MartR (298) - Aespa, ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2016
Looks about coppery brown with no head coming up. Strong malty flavors and a recognizable alcohol bite to sum things up. Pretty weak in the middle, a little unwanted watery hole there. Starts off with a good malty base with bready notes and honey. Finishes with warm alcohol to draw the line. Decent doppelbock.

Myonlyvice (129) - DENMARK - AUG 2, 2016
I bought the bottle just because I was out of bock beer and I liked the label. Glad i did! Color is a slightly hazy amber an i has a big creamy head. A bit of lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel and maybe citrus peel? Taste is sweet with notes of burned malt, dark chocolate, bread and caramel. Finish is a little bitter. Just enough to invite another sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear copper with a small white head that disappears a little too quickly and leave low lacing. Nose is of caramel, bread and alcohol. Taste is only lightly sweet and features less caramel than the nose would indicate. Alcohol is still present and a bit disturbing, taking too much place in the flavor profile. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Alright but I had higher hopes for it.
