Paulaner "Salvator"
Paulaner Brauerei (Schörghuber) - Munich, Germany
Doppelbock (ABV 7.9%)

[Best served in a Dimpled glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a medium copper brown with a yellowish-amber hue and a large (2-3 finger) cream colored frothy head that mostly diminished down to a very small amount of residue with a tiny collar, which produced some poor lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (figs and plums), and was a bit nutty.

Taste was sweet and very malty with a big note of caramel in the beginning and ended a tad bitter and mildly sweet with a strong note of dark fruit and a mild alcohol tinge. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice sweet fruity taste left behind along with a nice mild alcohol warming sensation.

Mouthfeel was a bit under medium in body and dry yet a tiny bit syrupy in texture with a moderate carbonation.

Overall a very impressive beer with a really good blending of malts, fruit and sweetness which made this a wonderful tasting experience...
