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.

On tap at Paulaner Brauhaus. I had this bottled a few weeks ago but was able to get it on tap in Germany --- totally different. This was very creamy and thick (for the style) and the sweetness of it lingered. Alcohol gave it a warmth but never made it too "hot." loved it.

cervezadrinker (33) - MEXICO - MAR 4, 2015
bottle poured in mug, dark brown cloudy appearance with almost no head, intense taste with silky sensation but the booze quite well hidden, balanced, full body, caramel malt and a fair amount of bitterness loyal to the style, great doppelbock.

On draft. Special beer with well-balanced sweetness of dates, molasses, dark sugar slightly roasted. Smooth, full bodied, oily, and a definite keeper. Hides the booze well.

PapaVillum (566) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2015
0,5 L, flaske, 7,9 % ABV, BB 11/15, købt i Tyskland og hjembragt af laboko - tak! 15. februar 2015. Rødbrun, rolig og filtreret Dobbeltbock med 2 cm offwhite tætskummet skumtop, som svinder til kant og overflade. Dejligt berusende aroma, som er let syrlig og medium sødlig. Karamel(-malt), let citrus, brød. Noget alkohol, men også noget mindre charmerende pastil. Smagen er bittersød og vældig fyldig af karamelmalt. Meget fin balance. Og lækker varm vintersmag. Opsummering: medium bitter, medium sødme, intet surt eller salt. Blød mundfølelse med en medium karbonering. Fyldig rund krop og en olieret konsistens. Lang "varm" bittersød eftersmag. I min "ølrejse" har denne øl altid haft en særlig plads, og den lever da også op til fordoms gode oplevelser. Én af de bedste Dobbeltbock's, jeg har smagt.
