3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium copper brown with a yellowish-amber hue and a large (2-3 finger) cream colored frothy head that mostly diminished down to a very small amount of residue with a tiny collar, which produced some poor lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (figs and plums), and was a bit nutty.
Taste was sweet and very malty with a big note of caramel in the beginning and ended a tad bitter and mildly sweet with a strong note of dark fruit and a mild alcohol tinge. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice sweet fruity taste left behind along with a nice mild alcohol warming sensation.
Mouthfeel was a bit under medium in body and dry yet a tiny bit syrupy in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a very impressive beer with a really good blending of malts, fruit and sweetness which made this a wonderful tasting experience...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
