4.8/5  rDev +22.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Light tan to Copper

S: sweet smell, maybe oaken hints

T: Was accurate for a German Dopple, it was smooth and easy to drink. We drank at 57F (12 C)so the extra alchol wasnt apparent.

M: I smelled the and tasted like a heavy bier but the mothfeel was light, the appreance tricks the eye.

O: This is one of great Dopplebock's, but drink it just below room tempature to get the wonderful real experience. Grabbed one from the fridge after our tasting and the cold (42 F) changed the taste, it needs to warm to truely be at its best.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Deep hazy orangeish brown, fairly dark, with a creamy tan head.

S: Nose is full of malt, bready, with a bit of red apple.

T: Malt has you up front, followed by a touch of alcohol. Finish and aftertaste are malty.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: My favorite bottom fermented beer. It's a malt bomb, and for a long time it was my favorite beer. If you like malty beers, this is the beer for you.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

11.2 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
7.9% ABV, Best Before: 05/14

A - Salvator pours delicately cloudy but maintains it's brilliant color that starts with a golden orange color at the base, gradually shifting to a burnt orange in the more volumetric top where it's sturdy tan head slowly plateaus to leave little gobs of lace.

S - Smelling like wort brewing, Salvator consists of dense bread, bold caramel sweetness, toasted Vienna malts, and a perfect absence of hops. This is the kind of doppelbock aroma dreams are made of!

T - Perfectly malty, Salvator's gooey caramel sweetness has Vienna toasted bread notes with a fantastic lingering sweetness that never gets cloying or absentmindedly unbalanced. Again, the intentional lack of hops is very nice in this, letting the bready malt complexity shine.

M - Smooth and medium-full bodied with a lower carbonation level and almost creamy, sweet finish, I can't stress enough the importance and impact of how malty but balanced and not cloying this doppelbock is.

O - Malt lovers rejoice! This. Is. Exceptional. Paulaner's Salvator is one of the kings of the doppelbock kingdom and for good reason; perfect malt balance so as to not be overly sweet but still keep a fuller bodied feel that washes down with delicious bready complexity and a smooth finish.

Extremely smooth beer to drink. Very light mouthfeel for being a bock beer. I felt like there were strong caramel notes and it finished with very little "alcohol" taste. One of the most drinkable beers I've ever tried, which is scary because it's 7.9%
