Each time I sample a doppelbock, I thank GOD for gifting us humans with beer. This is definitely my favorite type of beer.

Appearance: Darkish, reddish, with a nice thick head! It screams of quality!

Smell: Almost like liquid heavenly perfume, but in a good delectable way. Smells very appealing

Taste: Quality bread, aged fruits, quality liquid nutrition--as the Monks called it-LIQUID BREAD! So delicious. One of the highest quality beers you're going to ever taste

Mouthfeel: I say this, surprisingly, because of its high alcohol level--and yet this brew is so tasty and delicious and not overpowering. It almost feels like a king to be enjoying this wonderful brew. Thanks to Christ our KING!

Overall: This delicious brew goes well with just about anything. Alone, it's a wonderful nutritious treat. With food, it's an amazing complement. This is a beer that one must taste to truly behold the wonders of Paulaner. I am a huge fan of Paulaner. Their Oktoberfest, their Original, and their Hefe are quality brews---but their Salvator--the ORIGINAL DOPPELBOCK....brother it's on a WHOLE other level!

The Salvator Doppel Bock caught my eye as I browsed the cooler at my local package store. Pour yielded a medium sized creamy tan head that quickly dispersed. Appearance is a most enticing copper-bronze. Smell is sweet with spicy alcohol notes and a buttery biscuit smell is also present--again, very promising. Taste reflects the nose, with a sweet start, bread or biscuit flavors in the middle and a very faint alcohol spicyness to finish--And that's just one sip! It is not the most complex beer I have ever tasted, but the flavors are in perfect balance. I have had only a few beers of this style, but this is by far my favorite thus far, and definitely my favorite Paulaner--Respect!

I will say no more, but let my perfect '5' be a clear statement, that although this beer could be changed, it could never be improved!
