When I had this beer for the first time I really couldn't stand it. It seemed to me it's just to strong and this alcohol strength dominates the taste. Second time it had more to offer. Would recommend to drink it slowly, not to be too cold and to leave it a bit in the glass so it loses a bit of alcohol aroma. It's brown with nice head which doesn't stick around for too long. It has interesting taste with touches of bitterness and toffee. Still a bit sourish ending and strong alcohol feel.

a ruby pour, with very little head even though it was a vigorous pour.
very malty, very sweet smell and the flavor follows suit. definitely lacking after the Celebrator i just had- i just wanted to keep up the pace with the doppelbocks.
tastes a tad sweeter, and artificially so, than the last doppel i consumed but it's still a worthy drink. salvator is a standard to which we can measure a doppel.
