As a beer lover always searching for the best tasting beer I felt I had to review one of my favorite beer if not my favorite beer. The Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock goes down in my books as one of the best tasting beers out there! I found this beer while I was living in Bonn, Germany. Although the primary beer served in Bonn is Kölsch due to the fact that Cologne (Köln) is a few miles up the Rhine, there was a fairly large pub in the city center that served Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock which is from Munich. I would go in on Tuesdays for Happy Hour and get a litter for 2 Euro. I enjoyed the beer so much that when I came back to the States I searched all lover for it and found that a couple stores such as Bristol Farms sells it.
Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock is a darker golden beer that has a great taste. When poured into a glass the beer leave about a half inch of foam and you can already smell the caramel and chocolate in the air. There is not a lot of carbonation in the bottle which I feel is good because that can take away from the taste of the beer. Once you taste the beer your mouth will fill with a sweet taste full of chocolate and bread. You'll then get a light taste of fruit followed by a tiny alcohol taste. Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock has an alcohol content of 7.9% which is right in the area of a good Dopplebock.
I highly recommend this beer to those of you who thoroughly enjoy a good beer. This is not a beer for pounding but rather a sipping beer. Have fun trying it out! Auf Weidersehen!

Doppelbock or double bock is a Bavarian speciality beer that was first brewed by the monks of St. Francis de Paula. Alcohol content ranges from 6% to over 10% by volume. Historic versions had lower alcohol content and higher sweetness, and were considered "liquid bread" by the monks. Most versions are dark colored, but pale versions do exist. The color ranges from deep gold to dark brown, with a large, creamy, persistent head ranging from white for pale versions to off-white for darker versions, although doppelbocks with higher alcohol content may not display good head retention. It has a very strong malty aroma, with some toasty aromas. Some alcohol aroma may be present, and darker versions may have a chocolate-like or fruity aroma. The flavor is very rich and malty, with toasty flavors and noticeable alcoholic strength. Most versions are fairly sweet, due to little or no hop flavor. Paler versions may have a drier finish. Examples include Spaten Optimator, Tucher Bajuvator and Troeg's Troegenator. The Minim monks who originally brewed Doppelbock named their beer "Salvator", which today is trademarked by Paulaner. It is traditional for breweries to give their Doppelbocks names that end in "-ator".
