4.13/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Butthead pours an appetizing burnt siena-mahogany color. There's not a lot of head, but I'll forgive this fault since the color is so great.

Smell: The aroma is pure sweet malty goodness, with a hint of caramel.

Taste: There's lots of caramel malt flavor, with maybe a little biscuit malt for good measure. Also, there's an ever-so-slight ethanol taste. There seems to be a little spice going on, maybe a touch of cinnamon.

Mouthfeel: Butthead has a bit of a bite, but it's only noticeable if you're consciously thinking about it. In that regard, the alcohol is well-hidden.

Drinkability: It tastes and feels sessionable... But wait, 8.2%?!? No way!! Be careful with this one, people.

Notes: This is only my second American doppelbock, but I can already tell this is a great style of lager, whether brewed in America or Bavaria. Since comparing Bavarian doppelbocks to American ones in like comparing apples to oranges, I can really only compare this to the one other American version of the style that I've had, Capital Autumnal Fire. Although this beer has slightly more alcohol than Autumnal Fire, it lacks the kick that makes that beer so special. Butthead doesn't quite live up to that high standard, but it's still darn good.

Before drinking Butthead, I would have said I haven't had a doppelbock I didn't like. Post Butthead, that statement is as true as ever!
