3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a clear copper with red highlights. 1.5 finger tan head.
S - Lots of rich toasted caramel, almost like caramel melting in a pot, musty wheat bread, musty yeast, over ripened apples, sugary figs, nutty.
T - Toasted bread, fruity malt, caramel, alcohol does not hide, grassy bitterness shows up along with some dry nuttyness.
M - Full and slick, but drys out on the finish. Adequate carbonation.
The aroma is better around 52 degrees. After that the alcohol really pounces on things. The flavors were good but fell flat of what the nose describes.
Serving type: bottle

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.
