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.

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)

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby with a spare off-white head. Aroma was too sweet, all caramel malt to my nose. It smells O.K. but it’s dull. The flavour is malt, malt, malt & malt. There’s nothing else there! Others mention hops but I couldn’t taste any. The aftertaste is a bit harsh. On the plus side it hides the 7.5% very well. Quite mediocre.

From the bottle. Thick rocky head that stuck to the side of the glass. A sustaining brew with a rich and creamy mouthfeel. Sweet at first with fermented apples and vanilla. Finished with a peppery alcoholic flare. The more I drank the smoother it went down.

Pours a dark copper color with a good amount of head. Big malty nose. Sweet taste and alcohol isn’t very noticeable. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. A solid beer, nothing great.

Big malt and light hop aromas. Clear garnet read with a big creamy head. Big caramel malt flavor with some roast and hop bitterness. Very full bodied with pleasant carbonation. Outstanding.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottle (330ml). Poured a startling brilliant ruby-orange, hazy and bubbly, with a very quick diminishing off-white head, absolultely no lacing. Aroma ligthly malty, some sour wine, strong orange juice, some yeast, ash, wood and leafiness. Taste is fairly woody and fungal, with more strong orangey maltiness and some hops to make it less sweet - a bit of sourness, tannins and burned candy too. Extremely flat and lifeless mouthfeel knocks it down a peg or two. Not really a summer beer.

12 oz bottle( November 2004 vintage): Poured a leather brown color and had a fizzy head that broke up leaving the beer naked. Aroma had a strong breaking point of sweet malt, while also maintaining a fig and cigar like scent. After having a drink, i found a striking resemblance to a old barley wine style or perhaps a barleywine in the English style. Notes of cookie dough, vanilla, fig, tobacco, and minor tasting of malt in the background. Overall, i figure it unbalanced and having a poor carbonation level which makes this a mediocre doppelbock in comparison to others.

A nice golden brown color with a light brown head. A caramel aroma and a hint of floral. A light hop bitterness at first but quickly becomes sweeter in taste, somewhat light syupy. Despite the alchohol content the presence is barely apparent. A very nice warm finish to the beer.

Tastes malty, with a hint of caramel. Almost has a sweet sense to it. Definite alcohol warmth, but you don’t taste it. Smooth finish. Overall, a decent beer. Well worth a try.
