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.

thirstyrabbit (1781) - Tallinn, - FEB 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2015 Small bottle. Semi-transparent orange/amber body with a medium head. Aroma has sweet toffee and some faint hints of alcohol. Smooth and light taste of caramel and dried fruit. Covers the 8% nicely, no sharp spikes. Smooth and sweet finish. Despite the high ABV it never becomes cloying or too hot. A true classic indeed. Re-rate: upping the score from 3.8 to 4.1. A high ABV beer that is rich yet easygoing at the same time. Never disappoints.

Nawet nawet. Kolejny raz Paulaner mnie zaskakuje. Piwo mimo kilku braków jest wyjątkowo pijalne.

Delicious. Few very few coffee, black bread and something caramel. Alcohol is almost imperceptible, but warming

jackl (7166) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle pour. Deep chestnut color with a handsome, thick off-white head. Nose has an engaging array of malty notes. Plenty of candied raisin and dark forest fruit. Toasted brown bread. Plum preserve. A touch nutty. Flavor is towards the sweeter end of the spectrum. A bit of woody heat on the finish cuts the sweetness. Nutty raisin bread. A bit of umami. Robust, full body. Strong carbonation keeps things from feeling to heavy. Overall, a really nice cold weather warmer. This has held up surprisingly well for a bottle that probably sat on the shelves for a while.

Grumpelmies (152) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle. Amber/orange. Big bavarian head. Aroma of dark berries, prunes and malts. Taste is honey, bready, malty and fruity. Bananas and caramell. Aftertaste is hoppy bitter and alcoholic, bordering on being too boozy. Carbonation is on point. It’s a sticky but süffig and warming winter delight.

HuskerTan (1844) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle. A- Candied fruits, raisins, malty, caramel, subtle peat. A- Copper color, clear liquid, beige head. A- Dried dark fruits, raisins, malty, caramel, bread, subtle alcohol. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- For some reason I expected the color to be much darker. Not near as good as their hefeweizen nor as good as other doppelbocks I’ve had but drinkable for sure.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. A bold malty punch, light toasted, dried fruit, interesting base. Unfortunately, it is too overly boozy, with an astringent, alcoholic finish. Disappointing.

From bottle. Pours with medium head and bubbles and good retention. Appears a rich copper and quite clear. Very pretty. Aroma is full on malty caramel with a hint of booze. Taste turned me off the first time and i tipped it out it was so malty! On re-review the taste was less offensive and a malt forward beer that was a bit one dimensional. Overall wouldn’t seek again

A ruby orange color with and limited head of white foam. Deliciously malty ale that showcases caramel and subtle plum and rain flavors. A perfectly balanced hop character that cuts through the sweet malt recipe.
