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.

This reminds of a very strong Marzen. It’s really a little lite (not on the alcohol) to be a dopplebock. Thick head followed by a an even prunish flavor. This beer supposidly is legendary in Germany. I had high hopes and while not bad, really didnt live up to the expectations.

man, this beer review stuff is weird...taste is so subjective after all! i wasn’t too gung ho for this beer, even though i love paulaner’s weisse beer. maybe that’s my ’problem’. with doubles and trippels and whatnot i get overwhelmed. i like and am used to drinking the lower alchohol, wheat syle beers. who knows, perhaps these types of beers will grow on me and i’ll ’graduate’ to the genre! evidently the dubbel that i REALLY DO like (flying fish) is somewhat weaker in flavor than the norm, so maybe i’m already on my way.....;)

A very nice aroma, which includes alcohol and sweet fruits. A thinner body than I expected. An above average beer, after dinner or before bed.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Pours a clear glowing copper with a thick pillowy off-white head. Aroma is subtle and caramely with a touch of floral German hops. Body starts light and syrupy sweet with some toffee and butterscotch, finishing semi-sweet and crisp. Needs more thickness and complexity, but hides its alcohol well.

Ok beer. Not my style, but not a bad concoction. But I don’t think I could drink more than one at a time.

Not overly complex, but it does pack a punch like any doppelbock should. Great amber color with apartment wall-colored head. Decent smooth finish despite the alcohol flavor. Malt and caramel undertones. Not too bad.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 Alcohol-laced caramel sprinkled with spicy, herbal hops…Heavy on the caramel and its honeyed angles, this Doppelbock can get cloying at times...Still a good brew, but perhaps a brutish one...

In my opinion, this is a good example of how a doppelbock should taste and smell. Not an excellent example, but a good one. Complex aroma and flavor of malt and alcohol. Love the color - a brilliant orange-copper. Not my favorite beer in this style, but good none-the-less.
