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.

Any time I can get my hands on something referred to as "liquid bread", with a ABV of 7.90%, I’m going to be happy... This dopplebock poured into my large tulip glass with a rich amber color. The glass I used allowed for a great, light tan, rich foamy head. It stayed around for enough time to really aid the great nose of malt and lingering streaks of toffee. Had a wonderful heavy malt taste, with slight bits of toffee, and fresh wheat bread with honey. This beer, for being so substantial, really had a very drinkable, medium bodied mouth feel. This beer is pairing great with my aged white cheddar, but don’t rule out the schnitzel. Never rule out the schnitzel. I’ll leave the fasting to the Monks...Enjoy

Pours an clear copper with a thick white head sans lacing. Nose is slight roasted malt. Body is full. Taste is medium chocolate. Well balanced with a slight bitter after taste. 11.2 oz bottle

Very nice taste. Aroma is one of beer's most complex features.Thanks for the service.

Pretty straightforward doppelbock, steamrolling your palate with deep toffee and caramel malt notes backed up by date, fig, candied apple, and clove. A woodsy, floral bitterness keeps the pint from growing cloy, while the fade has traces of apple jam on buttered bread. Smooth, creamy carbonation makes for an easygoing texture, and the nose is all boozy fruit. Pour's not great, coming out a hazed orange with tons of yeast beasties swirling about but not much head or lace. Otherwise a solid beer.

Clear copper, little carbonation, small head, no lacing. Strong malty aroma, sweet, floral, caramel. Tastes bitter, but with a sweet malty, quite unpleasant after taste. Bitter yeasty funk, utterly sweet-bitter sticky feel on the tongue, herbal, caramel, booze. Terrible to my taste, reminds me of the taste in my mouth when I wake up after a night on booze. Quite flat carbonation, with a oily mouthfeel, strong artificial sugary bitter puke after taste. Terrible.

Had this one on tap at Ottawa's Craft beer Market. Very refreshing on a nice September Friday evening. Great company, great selection.

Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Weich alkoholischer, herb-malziger Antrunk. Erstaunlich geringe Würzigkeit, hell getreidig malzig, trocken werdend. Die Intensität bleibt hinter den Erwartungen zurück, der Nachhall ist entsprechend kurz. Okay, angesichts des Alkoholgehalts enttäuschend. 10/8/9/8/11/8

Color anaranjado, espuma densa y de 3 dedos de grosor. Textura suave, con olores a cereal sobretodo. Final suave. Una grata sorpresa, bien por Paulaner.

Barwa rubinowo-miedziana, bardzo klarowne, piana niska, pozostaje tylko cienka obrączka. W aromacie chleb, ciastka zbożowe, lekko mięsne. W smaku czuć sporą słodowość, karmel i inne chlebowe akcenty, w końcu to koźlak. Wysycenie średnie, goryczka niska do średniej.

Приятное немецкое пиво с нотами сливы и карамели. Присутствует легкая горчинка. Абсолютно не чувствуется алкоголь при 7,9% .

Strong bitter after taste. Initial taste is good. But take a big gulp and it's too bitter. Also doesn't look like beer. Looks like juice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
