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.

Orangeish off-white head which dissapears almost immediately. Orange-red in color. Malty scent with something displeasing. Interesting scent but not something that I’m digging. I like the taste more than the scent. Tastes a bit bitter, with a little aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Thanks Chuck! The appearance is a clear copper body with a thin white head. The aroma is like a peaberry candle that my ex-roommate left at my place. Sweet malty floral hoppyness. Smells kinda like some women’s perfumes. The flavor is much like the aroma but maltier. The palate is typical. 9, 3, 7, 3, 16 = 3.8

Rerate: pours to a clean bronzed orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and caramelized plantains or bananas with a unique yeast and apricot and pear that’s muddled into the background. The flavor has a metallic caramelized bock malt going on with a sweet strawberry seed compote. The palate is sweet and lingering and surprisingly light. 7, 3, 6, 3, 13 = 3.2

a copper hugh w/ a nice white head that dissapates quickly and laces fairly well. scent is sweet & malty hints of alcohol a little floral sugary. Palate is pretty creamy coats pretty well not to much carb. Tastes very sweet a nice thick carmel malt a little dougy floral farily simple flavor but done well. Overall pretty good.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - 16.9 oz] Clear copper pour with a fizzy and quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet with hints of malt, sugar and some vegetables. Very mild flavor with a malt beginning and a middle of brown sugar, malts and alcohol. Very warming on the way down. Not as flavorful as most doppelbock’s I’ve had though.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle into tasting glass. Clear, medium brown with a bit of glow, creamy off-white head that totally diminishes. Not as dark as my favorite doppelbock. Bready, somewhat tangy nose. Warm dark fruit and port flavors, very nice, with great malt sugary body and flavor. Warming alcohol that’s unnoticable in the mouth. Not much breadiness on the taste, which was disappointing. Tangy finish was unexpected and not entirely enjoyable.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 Couleur rouge rubis, abondante mousse blanche concassée, pleinement diminuante. Arômes très alcoolique, presque de cognac, nous dévoilant plus tard ces raisins secs, pruneaux et malt caramel. Les flaveurs portent essentiellement le grain pour ensuite en venir aux fruits séchés foncés et à l’alcool. Corps moyen, carbonatation légère laissant place à la brûlante sensation offerte par l’alcool. Finale semi-sèche offrant une brève sensation d’amertume venant tenter de contrebalancer le sucre. Bouteille LCBO Mai 2005.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2005
The complex aroma hints at plum, sweet chocolate, apricot, peaches, cherries, loads of sugar and some alcohol. The beer pours a transparent cranberry with little to no head. Flavor is much the same as the nose, with cherries, plums and alcohol becoming predominant as it comes to temperature. My only complaint is the thin, sticky mouthfeel.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2005
Expected a lot more from the first mass marketed ’Doppelbock’. Many other breweries, jealous of the success, named their Doubles in honour of this one, but many of them produce far greater versions of the style. Poured into an ’Aventinus’ glass, a short off-white ring formed atop a clear gusset-amber body. No true head, but it did give a good lace. Woody and slightly nutty, burnt toffee and toasted malt nose. Spicy alcohol phenols gave it a pleasant warming balance in the aroma. Medium light bodied in the mouth, with medium carbonation, it took until it warmed a little to give it’s full character. Burnt toffee and husky grain flavours were dominant, with a treacle sweet front, malt, vanilla and plums across the tongue. Yeast and alcohol phenols came in mid-palate and followed long into the aftertaste, providing a good warmth. All flavours seemed a little subdued, though, as if watered down, but it was still an unusually sessionable Doppelbock.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2005
Sparkling orange, thick fizzy off white head. Nose was toasty and bready, with notes of caramel, cherry, and hints of raisin. Nice sweet caramel malt and dried cherry notes up front, but is backed nicely with a dose of German hops for balance. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, malty, caramel and cherryish finish. Pretty tasty, but it certainly is not Celebrator...
