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.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Decent orange pour with a small, pretty thin head. Aroma was the highlight, with a good malty fullness and a bit of a sugary, vegetably touch. Flavor is similar but browns out early with little if any noticable hop and pretty much aftertaste. Creaminess on the palate is good and promising but still feels thin for the most part. This certainly is no Ayinger Celebrator DB, which is easier to find, cheaper, and better... I don’t like to mention other beers in reviews but this one seems pretty blatant. Variety is certainly always good though.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Pours a brown body, almost no head. Aroma is sugary and malty - caramel and raisiny. Hint of alcohol. Flavor is the same, easy drinking - but lacking complexity.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Big caramel, sugar, malt anr raisins in the nose. Brownish red color. Yeasty, pale malt flavor. Also toffee notes. Smooth and delicious. The savior delivers once again! Granted, there are dopllebocks that are better, but for the price, I just keep coming back. Its a great beginner dopplebock that sometimes doesn’t require an evolution.

Poured thin. No head. Was looking for a little more. Not a strong paulaner product.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2005
Poured with a very decent sized and moderately lasting creamy head on top of a clear deep amber/copper coloured brew. The nose is toffee and loads of malt, and some raisins. Slightly bitter, with some of the raisiny sweetness coming through at the finish. A good doppelbock, and a good beer for that matter all round

EKGoldings (659) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Big malt, somewhat complex flavors, alcohol is evident in the aroma. Not my favorite style of beer but this is one that I can drink more than one of.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle: Coppery caramel, fairly clear, large off-white frothy head, thick pancake batter like lacing, few streams of heavy carbonation.   Heavy bready nose, slight fig/date, seems like it will also be fairly sweet.   Definite whole wheat bready aspect, slight apple skin, some fig/date or otherwise dark pitted fruit, yet not too sweet.   Malty, big time.   Big body, moderate to full mouthfeel.   Big finish, sweet, yet with an unripened fig/date like flavor near the finish.   Probably one of the better easily available Doppelbocks.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
Robe rouge cuivrée très claire surmontée d’une mousse fugace. Arôme de sucre d’orge très prenant. Saveurs de malt, d’alcool et de caramel.

One of my favorite beers, honestly, although I’m partial to the style in general. Only moderately inferior to Celebrator, in my opinion, and arguably better by simple virtue of being much more inexpensive. Full bodied, deceptively strong, sweet on the entry, and just the slightest hint of hop on the finish. A beer I point people towards to define Doppelbock. (If they don’t want to pony up extra for Celebrator)
