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.

Poured an amber color with some carbonation and a small head. Aroma was of bread, a little metalic and a little banana. After it warmed up, the metallic aroma dissipated. Taste was sweet, but not too sweet with a medium body. Definitely a beer I will be purchasing again and sharing with friends.

This is probably my favorite overall beer. Malty, bready, sweet, delicious. To me, this is the ultimate in what a standard ale should taste like. Get it!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Plaisante. Une Doppelbock plutôt légère mais bien maîtrisée. Un bon petit caramel fumé. Sans grande originalité ni défaut.

Deep amber, reddish color. White head, getting small soon. Aroma is malty, little alcohol, sweet. Body is on the heavier side, good maltcharacter. Caramel, bread, creamy. Heavy beer, typical for its style and pretty good.

kamwitsta (364) - POLAND - NOV 13, 2015
Aroma: caramel, raisins, a little honey, a little alcohol (not offensive, helps break the sweetness). Appearance: pleasant brown, fairly strong tea; clear; head small and not for long. Taste: sweet, a little bitter; not exactly balanced, but the sweetness is broken. Palate: body full; carbonation average; finish more sweet than bitter. For 7,9%, the alcohol is reasonably well hidden; it’s still clearly there, though. Overall: I’m not too excited about the alcohol, but the beer’s nice, full, intensive, sweet, strong, and definitely enjoyable. Not in huge doses, I imagine, but quite fun once in a while.

Copper color, clean, with lively carbonation. Aroma caramel, toffe, raisins, honey, cloves and a hint of smoke in finish. Palate bit watery, alcohol quite present when warmed up. Aroma estery fruity, raisins, oak wood, caramel, spruce resin and salty umami/like finish. Balanced with low bitterness. Very decent malt heavy caramel brew with balanced characteristics. Enjoyed.
