2.5/5  rDev -38.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a hazy brown color with a big off white head.

Nose is big and boozed with a big raisin stench as well. Smells like grape jam and alcohol. Not the most pleasant thing in the world.

Fortunately the flavor is a bit more mild. Big body with a cinnamon raisin bread flavor. Hints of caramel, brown sugar, and honey are present as well. The sweetness is cut with a subtle herbal hop presence however a warming alcohol presence is found on the finish as well as a lightly lingering sugared fruit sweetness. Not bad but nothing impressive either.

A simple and slightly different doppelbock.

Im just glad it doesn't taste like other smuttys I've had before.

2.73/5  rDev -32.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: The lager is a deep auburn color with no visible sediment. It poured with a vigorous head that quickly settled down. There was no lace remainder.

Smell: A mild malt note emerges from the lager. I stress mild because the nose does not imply a doppelbock. I expected an overwhelming malt nose that was sweet and grainy. Instead, the aroma was very muted and relaxed.

Taste: A little stronger than a Vienna lager, the taste does not live up to expectations. In the taste, I pick up a smoked malt character that conjures up a rauch-lager hydrid. The taste does not impress me.

Mouthfeel: The lager sits nicely on the palate, although the taste is a little muted.

Drinkable: Moderately drinkable. For someone looking for the malt charge of a doppelbock, this beer will disappoint.

Bomber into an oversized wine glass. 2005 version.

Appearance: A dark amber color with brown hues. Some bubbles, but not many, gurgle toward the top of the glass. Hardly any lacing and almost no head to speak of.

Smell: This is a doppelbock? I get a lot of sweet malt and tons of hops, and really nothing more. There's not really much balance, and it almost, oddly enough, smells like a barley wine. Bland stuff.

Taste: Damn, this tastes like a barley wine too. What the hell is going on? There's a harsh balance between the sweet malt and hops, as if they're both trying to come through more, but instead of harmony there's heads colliding and too much dissonance. Finishes extremely hoppy, once again like a green barley wine. Did Smuttynose really make this?

Mouthfeel: Overly cloying and coating, and almost syrupy. I feel like the brew's sticking voraciously to my gums and the sugars are eating away at them.

Drinkability: Wow, maybe my biggest shock of 2006 so far. I love Smuttynose and all their brews, especially the wheat wine and the Big A IPA, but man... this is just bad. I don't think this is a bad bottle, and I was pretty neutral when I opened it. I'm utterly shocked and disappointed. Still, though, I'm thinking this is just a slight chink in the chain, and it's not deterring me from purchasing more of their brews for sure.

22oz bottle from Martignetti's

Appearance = Great looking dark, transparent, ruby-red brown. good 3/4'' inch head which lasted substantially. Ok lacing.

Smell = Lots of spice and fruit with a high bit of alcohol coming through. I smell cherries and plums mostly. A bit too pungent but still good.

Taste = I think this beer would be so much better if it had less of an ABV %. The flavors are initially very good with a sweet, malty fruity mix but then the alcohol comes and it just overpowers everything else. I do enjoy high ABV beers but they have to be done really well and the brewers need to make sure the alcohol doesn't dominate everything else. This beer fails at that and brings the taste and drinkability scores way down.

Overall = I like a lot of things about this beer but I can't recommend it. I just don't think they do a good enough job of mixing the alcohol in with the rest of the flavors.

Sorry for the average scores, but I gotta review 'em as I drink 'em. Had on tap at the Barley Pub in Dover NH. My over-all impression of this one was of sugar. Medium dark amber when served, low head. Burnt sugar aroma. Tastewise was more of the same, there were notes of spun sugar to start, and the finish was more of a maple sugar flavor.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This is a big american brew. Certainly inspired by the doppelbock style (or perhaps samiclaus?), but not very malty. It's difficult to rate this one. It's REALLY well-crafted, but it's just not a doppel.

A: Medium-brownish orange, off-white head, some retention.

S: More fruityness than the average doppel (given its strength, perhaps the fermentation got a little too vigorous); brown sugar; slightly peppery.

T: Bread, brown sugar, grassy/slightly peppery hop spice, dark (slightly burnt) caramel. Bitterness is well-balanced. Alcohol is INCREDIBLY well-hidden, but it seems like it could use some lagering to smooth out the flavours.

M: Moderate body is really well-attenuated (surprisingly thin for its weight, it lacks the malty backbone of most doppels).

D: Perhaps a little potent for Lent. Not a session lager.

Thanks for the sample biegaman!

22oz bomber (notched 'bottled conditioned in 2008') recently recieved in trade from ATPete, thx! Served at 55F in my Delirium snifter, S'muttonator is dark hazy garnet with a tight bubbled tan head that leaves pretty heavy lace.

Smell is sweet, grape soda, perhaps a bit of roast, it opens some as it warms, but there is a bit of rancid grain or something that asserts itself more in the taste.

Taste is very rich and sweet, raisin and medjool dates, a tinny bite, grassy hop bitterness on the lingering, malty finish. Something about this isn't working for me at all, there is a sourness that stands out, but it's tough to pinpoint any one off flavor, just the sum of the parts is failing for me. Below average.

Mouthfeel is thick and malty, with lots of creamy carbonation.

Drinkabilty isn't to high for me, I'm just not feeling this beer. The strong flavors hide the ABV, but that's really no solstice.

3.13/5  rDev -22.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

appearance- the beer pours a tan head two fingers deep and is a deep mahogany color.

aroma- i can smell the munich first, with crystal malt/ toffee tones under it, and a sharp phonol kick.

taste- the palate is light and dry. there is some richness to the malt and the sweet spots there, but alcohol overwhelms and the hop bitterness lays a bit heavy for this style.

mouthfeel- there is little of the lush creaminess that i look for in this style, and every sip ends wiith a wash of heat.

drinkability- overall, it's too strong and bitter, with little of the classic malt profile to back it up. definitely an american interpretation of the style... still the strength is endearing as i empty my glass.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter, split during a tasting. Generously provided by 603BeerMe. Thanks!

A - Pours a dark copper, hazy body with a finger's worth of head. Decent retention with small, scattered lacing.

S - Smell is very sweet, heavy on caramel, toffee, with some darker fruits in the background.

T - Taste, much like the nose, is malt-heavy and very sweet. Lots of caramel, figs, currants, and perhaps a hint of bitter chocolate. Finish is long and surprisingly bitter.

M - Mouthfeel is heavy bodied with low carbonation. Relatively smooth and creamy, but as mentioned in the taste, it ends bitterly.

D - Drinkability for me is pretty low. A bit too sweet up front and too bitter in the back for my liking. Becomes a bit hard to drink about halfway through.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

a: This was a hazy mahogany/ruby color. It poured with a big, sticky, light tan froth.

s: Warm dark fruits and some floral hops. There was a little chocolate hiding behind the excessive heat.

t: This is fairly hot, almost to the point of being harsh. The strongest flavors are of dry, perfumed, bitter heat. The sweet maltiness is there, tasting of raisins and chocolate, but it doesn't take center stage as it probably should.

m: Mouthfeel and carbonation are fine, but I didn't like the lingering bitter heat.

d: I don't think I'm a style nazi, but in my limited experience I haven't had a dopplebock like this one. One and done for me.

The bottled version poured out into my .5 liter mug with a huge creamy caramel colored head. Hot alcohol aromas dominate the nose. Creamy mouthfeel is quite appropriate and there is a nice raisin, dark chocolate, and plum flavor, but the hot alcohol aromas and flavors seem to overide everything else. Now I can see why they delayed to release of this beer, hoping the hotness subsides. Its something I am noticing in many of their big beer series lately, maybe they are too big? I will buy a few bottles and let them sit for a few months. Hopefully it mellows by the time the traditional dopplebock season rolls around.

Tasting next to a fresh St. Victorious for comparison. This is an 05 bottle that is 2+ yrs. old.

it may have been posted already but a quick profile
Malt:
Pale (2-Row) Malt, Munich Malt, Caramunich, CaraFa II, ABV - 9.6%
Hops: IBU ­ 42 Bittering and aroma - Hersbrucker Hallertau

First thoughts are that this has aged too long. It's quite malty and uniquely sweet as the brewer suggests. A faded brown appearance against its dark red counterpart in this tasteoff w/ some well-preserved lacing. Smells like a strong ale overboard on sweetness and the taste reflects that. As though someone doused a little syrup or medicine into a Bastard.

App. - 3.5, Smell - 3.5, Taste - 3, Mouthfeel - 3.5, Drinkability - 3

Bottle conditioned in 2011.

Poured into a Troegenator stein.

Cloudy burnt umber color. Tall creamy off-white head. Lots of visible strong carbonation. Decent retention. No lace.

The aroma is rich is melonoidins. The label claims that they take 30 hours to brew this beer. I'm not quite sure how they're adding up time, and what brewing elements are being counted, but it is safe to assume that they were using an extensive decoction mash and long boil. Strong yeasty presence and floral hoppiness. Also the bite of alcohol in the guise of honey is in the mix.

Again, I found this fairly hoppy and bitter for a doppel... There are also some roasty, burnt flavors in there - elements of the decoction (possibly going too far?). Doughy but not really bready the way a doppel ought to be.

Warming, almost too hot going down, especially for only 8.5%. Over carbonated.

Overall this wasn't bad, and is a great value at $5.99 a bomber. That said, this doesn't hold a light to the traditional German doppelbocks out there.

Reviewed on 10/5/08. Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and soda. Flavor of raisin bread, yeasty pizza dough, spices, and soda. Reminds me of expired Corsendonk Christmas Ale, hehe. A little too sweet with a weak palate. Probably most similar (in terms of doppelbocks) to Spaten Optimator.

A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Pours a two finger dark tan head over a red-brown copper liquid. Smells caramel, toffee, sherry-like oxidation, earthy hops, clean alcohol, a little bit of grain-husk phenol.

Tastes mild malt sweet that's quickly over-run by carbonation, noticeable flavor, and earthy hop flavor. There is an acidic bite in the finish that doesn't fit in the style, nor with the flavors, nor the mouthfeel. Malt flavor is honey with a dash of chocolate, nougat, and caramel. Hop flavor is earthy, but not quite noble...perhaps a variant of tettnanger, but not tettnanger itself. Alcohol intensity matches the style and works well with the honey flavor. Hop bitter is mild and grassy. The finish dries from alcohol and leaves lingering hop flavor into the aftertaste. Too strong carbonation and light in the mouth.

This pours a dark reddish color with a smallish head. The smell has a slight malt and fruit,prunes,raisins, scent,but it's not very strong. The flavors are a real fruit taste with some alcohol aftertaste. This isn't really anything special. The m/f is heavy with a flavor that's not well balanced. This is an average, or below, double bock and I wouldn't go out of my way to get this again.

22oz. bomber with no freshness date. Pours a dark maroon/ brown with an awesome thick frothy off-white head. Great lacing. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is a bit complex with caramel and alcohol making up the majority. I also pick up a fruity, citrus/berrylike aroma. Full bodied, The taste is just as complex, caramel and chocolate sweetness up front, nutty almost earthy character and I'm getting a slight hint of maple sugar. The middle and finish are overpowered by the alcohol, ans leaves the palate with a bitter dryness. This brew is very warming and after the bottle I was feeling pretty good. This beer is good but the powerful alcohol flavors overpowered this brew and numbed my palate. It is a sipper!

Cheers!

Reddish-brown in color. While the taste has a zing to it based on the high alcohol content, it is not overly rich in flavor. There are not a lot of underlying tastes involved here. I would have liked a bit more depth to this doppelbock.
Not bad, but certainly not great either.

This beer pours a reddish brown, looks more like a red ale as suppose to the darker brown in most doppelbock's I've tried. I know this style can range in color but I just expect more brown than reddish. It leaves a small off white head that kind of lingers with the brew. The smell of this beer seems off to me, more of a grape sour smell comes out which throws me off a bit. As I continue to smell this beer more candied darker fruit begins to rise from the depths which now intrigues me. The taste is malty with a nice balance of hops to counteract that sweetness on the palate. Caramel starts off on your palate with medium carbonation followed quickly by a sharp herbal bitterness and finishes with some what mellow nutmeg spice characters. Overall this isn't the best beer from Smuttynose but decent.

Deep dark brown beer with a creamy tan lingered colored head. Very sweet smelling of toffee and caramel, borderline cloying sweetness. Hops are not apparent in the nose what-so-ever.

Lots of rich thick layers of malt. This has flavors of bready, caramel, toffee. Mouthfeel is soft, thick and rich. Biting alcohol warmth in the finish. Lacks some of the depth of nuttiness and roasted flavors found in the best German doppels, but still very enjoyable.

This is a big sweet doppelbock. Alcohol detracts from the overall enjoyment. Not sure this would age well either because I find German styles typically just do not.

A-Pours a relatively transparent brown color. Has some reddish highlights.

S-Mostly sweet. A bit roasty. Not very big in the aroma department. Sweetness rules here but is not very intense altogether.

T-Eh. Too boozy. Alcohol zaps my tongue immediately. Sweetness is there. Brown sugar and what not. A bit of grassy and pine hoppiness. The alcohol hurts the flavor here. Poorly masked.

M-Heavier body. Carbonation is more lively than I was expecting. Alcohol dries the mouth. Decently bitter aftertaste.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bomber bottle that has a classic label of a long horned goat standing tall of his pasture. The face on the goat says it all. It's saying "I'm going to head butt you till you get out of my face!" Under the label in the far right hand corner is the bottled year. Mine was the 2006 vintage. I believe that was the last bottled year for this Doppelbock. The far right side of the label is just the Government warning. The far left side has 3 seperate sentences. The top one talks about how it's brewed in limited quantities, the second one talks about the German ingredients that went into this beer, and the last one talks about how it took 30 hours to brew a single batch.

Appearance: When poured into a Pilsner glass, this Doppelbock was a clear caramel brown color with a massive 5 inch initial head of foam. The color of this foam was a light beige color. This massive head of foam had really good retention that left behind a 1 inch tan film and a fair amount of sticky tan spots of lace around the glass. The massive head of foam was nice to see, but I still liked the color of this Doppelbock a bit more.

Smell: This Doppelbock's aroma was lightly sweet yet malty and slightly wheaty all at the same time. The aroma consisted of dark roasted malts, roasted wheat, sweet caramel, and dried dark fruits at the finish. When it was swirled around, more wheat and dark fruits emerged, but this time they had a small coating of alcohol on them. The alcohol did not take over the aroma because the sweetness of the beer controlled it.

Taste: The taste was sweet and malty, but not wheaty like the aroma. It's funny. It starts off with sweet roasted malts and then it goes directly into a sweet and alcoholic flavor burst. That means the sweetness of the caramel and the dark fruits a covered up by an alcoholic blanket. The alcohol was not overwhelming, but it will warm you up. The taste isn't done just yet. This sweet alcoholic flavor burst is followed up by more malts, but this time their dry roasted and not sweet roasted like they were in the beginning. In the end, it could have used more dark flavors and less alcohol, but it's still an enjoyable Doppelbock taste.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was walking the thin line between being a medium bodied beer and a full bodied beer. It's hard to say which one it is. The aftertaste strated off sweet and boozy, but after about 3 seconds, the booze trails off leaving behind a slightly sweet aftertaste of sweet roasted malts and a hint of caramel.

Drinkability: Overall, it's not a Doppelbock you want to drink on a daily basis or a monthly basis because it's too sweet and boozy. The alcohol won't kick your ass, but it will let you that it's there. Is it worth a shot? Yeah, because it's an interesting Doppelbock that was brewed about 2 years ago. I wonder if a little more age will settle down the alcohol. Only one way to find out!

I expected to love this beer but sorry I don't. Poured almost all head, beige color, long lasting. Smell is really quite mild. Yes there's malt but it's not a complex malt smell. Color is a hazy rusty brown. Taste is indeed malty but again it's not a complex malt, and to be honest I thought it was kind of salty. Finally, I did expect the high alcohol yet this beer still seems hot to me.

Ruby-amber body with about 1.5 fingers of creamy offwhite head. Poured into an Aventinus glass. 2010 bottling. I didn't get any lacing, and the head eventually dissipated into some decent surface memory.

Smell is boozy, with some hops and raisins or apricots or something, but it's hard to get past the booze on the nose.

Taste is nice though. It sort of follows the nose and this drinks much more like a mild barleywine than a doppelbock. The hop character is more aggressive than standard for the style. It's mostly malty, though, with some raisin and vague spice. Yeah, this is really more of an American-style barleywine than a doppelbock, in that it is hoppier and the alcohol is more present.

Mouthfeel is fine, pretty standard smooth effervescence from bottle conditioning, nothing of great note here.

Altogether it's all right, but probably not a doppelbock I'll buy again.

Pours a hazy red-orange with one finger of fizzy tan head. Fades to nothing, few spots of lace on the glass. Smell: raisin, date, cherry-ish. Toasted brown bread, somewhat boozy. Taste: fairly booze forward for 8.5%, toasted brown bread with raisins, mild medicinal hopping. Medium to full bodied feel but thins out and finishes with a booze + cola feel. Carbonation is high and fizzy and I get the impression that it would be a lot better slightly less attenuated. I like Smutty a bunch, but I'm not digging this one, despite the phenomenal name. Bottled conditioned in 2011.
