Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock
From another monastery, and one of the supreme styles of the example, here is Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock. Another substitute for food during lent, and translates to "Savior". It can certainly save me!
Pours a fuzzy copper. More orange than brown with not much head at all. Smells of butterscotch and sweet bread. The taste is big, smooth, and creamy. Lots of butterscotch, but a bit of a sour bite in the finish. Some late alcohol and sweetness, too.
It's quite good. I'd put it in the top tier of doppelbocks, but I wouldn't say it's my favorite.
By the way, the website listed on the label doesn't exist. That has me a little worried.
