Salvator poured a perfect caramel brown into my pilsner glass that sines with a reddish hue. Many tiny carbonation bubbles rise from everywhere to the small cap of head. The off white head started off about 1 finger on the pour but quickly fell down to the thin cap it's at right now. The clear caramel body really makes this beer attractive.

For me this was unexpected but the first smell I noticed was tart green apples. There's a solid caramel maltiness in the back but the apple really sticks out. Lightly toasted white bread shows up in there too. Fairly simple but unique and enjoyable.

The caramel shows up first in the flavor but drops to the background quickly and lets doughiness step up. This doughiness shows up mid-palate and is then taken over by the tart green apples and a hint of alcohol. As it warms the caramel gets deeper. Again, simple but very effective.

Body is medium with a thinner mouthfeel that actually compliments things nicely. Beer moves slowly through letting each flavor show itself. Small alcohol heat on the swallow.

This is definately an easy drinker. The body really helps this along with the simple flavors. The alcohol is a little too high to drink a lot but I could drink a few pretty easily.

Salvator is a quality doppelbock. Unique with the simple but interesting flavors. Good on this cold winter's night. An easily enjoyable beer that's also easy to find.
