Paulaner Salvator at the Source Is a Gem in Any Season
Salvator by Brewery Paulaner Salvator Thomas Bräu Abv 7.9
Paulaner’s Salvator is the original “ator” doppelbock and still stands as the definitive example of the style. We’ll run a featured (Hopping Around) post during “Strong Beer Season” in Munich in the spring.
As spring approaches, however, it should be pretty easy to find. We were struck to find it available year-round at Paulaner’s restaurant up on the Nockerberg. Bottles of the Salvator that we’ve had in the states have been wonderful, but the beer in prime condition at the source was even better.
Description: Rich and beautifully balanced dark malt, dark (cherry chocolate) fruit, finising with sweet noble hops. Herkules, Taurus and Hallertau Tradition hops are a perfect match for the complex malt. A range of chocolate, dark fruit and a hint of whiskey with a bit of toffee rounds out the flavor at the end. Some burnt sugars emerge as it drinks and as it warms, but it doesn’t take too long to feel fairly burnt yourself.
