Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 01-11-2005

S’muttonator is a tasty mixture of German ingredients & good ol’ fashioned New England tenaciousness. Our brewers take 30 hours to brew a single batch of this traditional Double Bock. Take your time & enjoy its rich, malty & deceptively smooth flavor.

Pours a medium-dark brown with little beige head. The most impressive things about this beer are how the malty flavors coat your mouth, and considering the high ABV how un-boozy it tastes. Smuttynose has done an excellent job at replicating a long time German offering. Bravo!

Clear, dark mahognycolored beer with a two finger high, beige head. Lacing stays on the glass when the head dissolves.

Nose: Plum, apples, raisin, brown sugar, caramel malt and nuts.
Taste: Sweet caramel malt, a LOT of malt! Raisin, toffee, nuts and bread.
Body: Medium to full body with small carbonation. Ligth bitter together with a high malty sweetness.
9.8% ABV made me think of a alcohol-bomb but it's well hidden in the sweet malt. To my suprise it's not at all boozy!

Great doppelbock! Not as great as some "original" German versions but still very pleasant!

Serving: 750 mL bottle poured into a stemmed Pilsner (beer tulip) glass (bottle marked "bottle conditioned 2014").

Appearance: Lightly hazy, deep caramel brown. Modest tan head leaves little lace but persists as a crowning haze.

Smell: Sweet, rich and lightly toasty malt; brown sugar, caramel.

Taste: Big, sweet and toasty malts, sweet dried fruit (raisins), caramel. Slightly earthy hop bitterness provides dry balance to finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and gentle carbonation.

Overall: Big and malty without being either overly sweet or alcoholic.
