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.

Instant caramel sweet aroma even from the bottle, a little thinner that I expected when poured. Huge head that I wasn’t quite ready for. I can barely notice any presence of alcohol, if this is 7.5% you could probably get a buzz quick because of the sweet inoffensive character of the beer. Half way finished with the glass and I don’t agree with this cloying as it warms it’s just not thick enough to be overpoweringly sweet. There is a slight bitternes trying to fight through but it is quickly squashed on the palate by carmel malt. I wish I would have tried this before I tried a Celebrator Dopplebock. It’s like visiting Colorado after you’ve seen Alaska. Still, this is a good beer that I could easily see buying/drinking again and could also be enjoyed by many who are not into trying and rating beers. Too thin to be great.

Bottle. Pours a bright amber with white head that leaves quickly. Smells of apples and cider. Tastes semi sweet with a bit of bitter in the end.

Expected a lot more from the first mass marketed ’Doppelbock’. Many other breweries, jealous of the success, named their Doubles in honour of this one, but many of them produce far greater versions of the style. Poured into an ’Aventinus’ glass, a short off-white ring formed atop a clear gusset-amber body. No true head, but it did give a good lace. Woody and slightly nutty, burnt toffee and toasted malt nose. Spicy alcohol phenols gave it a pleasant warming balance in the aroma. Medium light bodied in the mouth, with medium carbonation, it took until it warmed a little to give it’s full character. Burnt toffee and husky grain flavours were dominant, with a treacle sweet front, malt, vanilla and plums across the tongue. Yeast and alcohol phenols came in mid-palate and followed long into the aftertaste, providing a good warmth. All flavours seemed a little subdued, though, as if watered down, but it was still an unusually sessionable Doppelbock.

Bottle into tasting glass. Clear, medium brown with a bit of glow, creamy off-white head that totally diminishes. Not as dark as my favorite doppelbock. Bready, somewhat tangy nose. Warm dark fruit and port flavors, very nice, with great malt sugary body and flavor. Warming alcohol that’s unnoticable in the mouth. Not much breadiness on the taste, which was disappointing. Tangy finish was unexpected and not entirely enjoyable.

Orangeish off-white head which dissapears almost immediately. Orange-red in color. Malty scent with something displeasing. Interesting scent but not something that I’m digging. I like the taste more than the scent. Tastes a bit bitter, with a little aftertaste.

Bottled at DBF 2005. Orange colored with a lacing off white head. Aroma of malts and fruits with notes of caramel. Sweet flavour with lots of malts and caramel.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2005
orange/caramel colored body with a cream colored layer of head that laced the sides of the glass. aroma is yeasty and malty, sweet with lots of caramel notes. alot of caramel malts up front backed up by some moderately bitter hops, which is the lingering aspect of this brew. definitely not as good as a number of dopples that ive had

Pours a transparent amber red with a small amount of white head. Aroma is extremely potent: loads of fruity sugary sweetness, almost like candy. Flavor is very malty almost molasesy then with loads of tart fruits and smokey undertones and a slightly dry, bitter finish. Overall, I found this to be a decent beer but nothing that truly blew me away.
