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.

After reading about this many times I couldn’t wait to try it. I know the Germans and Belgians can brew some very deceptive beers but this just didn’t live up expectation. Teak in colour, a little malt and raisin on the nose. Full bodied and fruity as expected but too heavy throughout. Bottle from Beers of Europe is in good condition but I’ve been drinking Worldwide ales now for over 20 years and this doesn’t float my boat. Personally I prefer the smoked beers, but each to their own...

Scura con riflessi sul rosso. Bella schiuma compatta. Olfatto di caramello e frutta matura che non viene tradito in bocca. Dolce, come deve essere; luppoli in secondo piano. Corpo pieno.

Has a strong smell that doesn't do the flavor justice. Rich and malty with a nice finish. This is a pretty good double bock, not nearly as strong as I was expecting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

his one is ridiculously sweet. After a strong taste aroma experience (that is hard to describe... the sweetness overtakes it all) a long finish with some bitter pepper and smoke notes follow. Also some booze. The whole combination seems very one dimensional and didn’t please me so much.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2017 ** 2 1/2 year old aged bottle ** Kind of hazy chestnut brown color with weak brown foam. Aromas are really pleasant of light chocolate, roasted malt notes, figs, and raisins, complex and wholesome. Palate, full body, smooth texture, rather flat leaving light boozy finish. Taste, sweet of malt, nut oils, a touch of booze and fruits. Overall, really nice big beer and not too strong which is nice. Strongly recommend.

Not bad, but not kind of beer I want to drink usualy. It is hard to drink.

Butelka, warka do grudnia 2017r. Barwa ciemnozłoto-czerwona, przejrzysta, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, brudno-biała, stoi długo. W aromacie ciemne słody, ciemny chleb, estry kojarzące się zarówno ze świeżymi jak i suszonymi owocami, w tle nuta alkoholu. Smak piwa przykrywa silny alkohol, mimo że to specyfika stylu to tutaj jest to jednak trochę za mocne. Dopiero w finiszu możemy doszukać się goryczy od ciemnych słodów i słodkiego smaku chleba. Piwo dość ciężkie, przy tym treściwe, wysycenie niskie. Może warto poleżakować i zobaczyć, czy alkohol się uspokoi. Klasyk, chociaż piłem lepsze. Na zdrowie!

Nie warte swej renomy. W aromacie pełno nut chlebowych, odrobinę estrów. W smaku natomiast płynny, słodki chleb, ale przesiąknięty alkoholem strasznie. Po chwili nieco się ten alkohol uspokaja, ale nadal pozostaje niesmak. Balans na tym cierpi. Bardzo średnie.

Bottled. quite light. A bit smoky, just a little but of bitterness in the aftertaste. Light head.

The beer has a very nice smell. Even though the color is a dark amber the body of the beer is soft. The taste is subtle but for my is very sweet. For my husband is perfect. I could not take more than 2 in one night. ♡♡♡

Butelka W Monachium. Aromat - słodu, karmel, nuty kukurydzy, jesienne czerwone owoce. Smak - dość duża chlebowość, wyraźny karmel, co daje uczucie słodkości, ale całego piwa nie określił bym jasno słodkiego, bo są w nim nuty jakby skórzane, a w aftertaste’ście lekka kwaskowatość. Nasycenie średnie, ciało ładnie zbalansowane. Alkohol ładnie ukryty. Dobry doppelbock.
