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.

Hmmm. Perhaps it’s just that my first bottle of Celebrator was old or something, but I’m finding Salvator to be a much richer beer. It poured a deep, reddish amber with a thin, foamy head. Aroma is nice: malty with a touch of caramel and maybe dark cherries/plums. Flavor is sweet and smooth, malty with a subtle bitterness on the back end. Extremely good.

Pours a clear brownish-red with little or no head. Sugary aroma with a malty undertone to it that is quite pleasant. Warming mellow first taste with toffee notes and subtile alcoholic taste with a sugary palate. Definately a blood warmer. A fine brew!

Maybe it isn’t fair to make comparisons, but life isn’t fair, or I wouldn’t have had a summer’s worth of drinking (temporarily) underpriced Ayinger Celebrators before I had my first Salvator. So, the negative: Salvator doesn’t have the richness and layers of flavor that border on Belgian-depth that Celebrator has. But Salavtor is very good, and 25% cheaper, so I’m thinking this will end up being my stock doppelbock. To the beer: Even with the sniffles tonight, I get the strong fragrance of compote and similar dark-sugary aromas. It pours a beautiful red-brown (more red than brown) with almost no head. A hit of carbonation yields to a medium-bodied, sweet sip that finishes with a pleasing soft sourness and refreshing bitterness, which cuts the sweetness. I love just swirling the glass and smelling it. Found it for $9 per six-pack at store on Addison and Leavitt.

Thanks to gputty for sharing this with me on a Friday afternoon! Coppery pour with a decent head. Nose is sweet malts, molasses, breadlike, gingerbread-ish really. Flavor is sweet, gingerbread, molasses/brown sugar. Mellows as it warms, drops back to a toffee and malt flavor. Pretty rich, sticky, but not in an unpleasant way. Good in front of a fire on a chilly night!

Bottle from Florida. Pored a hazy brown color with an average creamy light brown head that diminished slowly. Heavy fruity malt aroma. Medium to full body with a rich sticky texture. Full flavor with a long pleasing finish.

Amber-brown color, with a tan-colored head, with an extra malty nose, with caramelized malt, fruity, nutty, sweet roasted malt and toffee aromas follow through on a medium-bodied sweet palate with an expressive malty character, sweet toffeish accent, hint of butterscotch, roasted malt, caramel malt, leading towards a sweet note but showing a shy hoppy finish.

The problem with this stuff is it tastes too good, and at 7.5% that can be a problem.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 This is a mild doppel.... sweet, yet balanced. Smeels like bread dough. Fills up your mouth. Smooth like movie star skin. Re rate: After a few more ratings I must give this a higher score, It is far better than a 3.5, in my opinion.

Came out of the bottle copper colored with a light tan head on her. I get a sweet bready hop aroma. With a sweet bready hop taste. Some of the hops stick around for a while but don’t over stay there welcome. I’m enjoying it but I liked Spaten’s Optimator better. It has more malt flavorings

Bottle. Poured a nice bold copper color, cloudy with a decent tan head. The aroma was a nice blend of malt, apple cider and apricot. The flavor was rich with apricot, caramel, yeasty bread, and malt with a bit of a bitter finish. Very complex, very nice. Nice and full bodied on the palate, well textured. Great beer for the fall, I enjoyed it.
