COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Good example of a Dopple bock.. Aroma is malt heavy with toffee and carmel notes, No hops to style. Alcohol warmth and scent. Amber color with solid tan head...Flavor is much the same as aroma....Perhaps carbonation hig for style but not carbonic bite. Full body. Cheers

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Lacks a strong aroma. Nice large ivory head. Clear red. Ultra creamy, excellent caramel and burnt sugar. Not too watery, smacks on the palate of apples. Finishes crisp. A little too much cheerios and sourness.

Excellent beer. Has a smooth warm taste with a very fluffy head. Nice rich medium amber color and hits fast and hard after a long day at work. Whoooooo! :)

Firstly, I’m an IPA guy...a "hop-head", if you will. I generally dislike lagers, pilseners, and even most bocks because of their relative lack of flavor and style. That being said, I LOVE this beer. It truly defines the doppelbock...definitely one of my top five "desert island" beers. PS...my character on FFXI is named "Salvator" (Ifrit server), which obviously proves my dedication.

I’m a doppelbock fanatic. My mouth waters at the mention of a Paulaner Salvator. Since this is an authentic doppel, I judge all doppels by this one. You can "crank ’em up" any way you like but for sheer great taste, the Germans still are the king.

Pours reddish-brown with a thick beige head. Malty, sweet, and maybe woody aroma. Not as malty in the flavor as aroma. I think that being well carbonated does help. Good hop bitterness also balances out the malt. Very well balanced. Maybe some oaky flavor as well.

Crystal clear dark ruby/amber pour. Nice creamy tan head which recedes. Big sweet malt nose. Flavor is sweet malt and caramel with a slightly hoppy, bitter finish. Thick full body, and enough carbonation to keep it from being syrupy in the mouth. Tasty and interesting. Smooth and pleasant, warming alcohol on the way down. A very high quality brew from Paulaner. I got a sixer for $9.99 and will enjoy every last drop. Nice!

Sweet and malty with a mid-sized light tan head, this brew is flavorful and warming. Distinct German malts make this is bready and smooth. A fine pairing with any wurst dish.

I expected a lotmore than I got. Quite Pale for a Doppel. Smell is sweet like maple syrup. Very malty smelling. No hops. Taste is very sweet with a warming in the chest. Very displeasing as a doppel...
