Funny label of a ram destroying the Us capital building and English Parliament Building. Dark brown bottle, twist top. Stamp on bottle reads: BORN: 06/08/11.
Pours very nicely with a small head which goes away quickly. Caramel in color with a light cloudiness. Smells distinctly of caramel and malt.
Tastes sweeter than other double bock's I've had but this is a good thing. The sweetness is a mellow caramel flavor which goes nicely with the very smooth mouth feel. It warms the mouth and has little carbonation which I like. Ok, the mouth-feel is awesome-- smooth, mellow, warming, not thick like a stout but thick enough to compliment the caramel flavors.
Alcohol is indiscernible.
This is a "big" beer which I think holds its own against any other in the style. I could drink this all year long, but am looking forward to a few of these in the fall. Another great point to make was that this was a relatively inexpensive beer, especially for what you get. I will definitely be buying this again.

Pours a medium brown carmel color with 2 fingers of tan head. Leaves rocky, with some decent lacing.
Smell of carmel and toasted malts. Bready. Toasted goodness.
Toasted malts and bready. Some sweetness mellowed by a slight bitterness. A creamy cocoa flavor. Good complexity, and very balanced. Some hints of dark fruits are there.
Medium in body with smooth carbonation. Sticky.
The drinkability is off the hook due to not having the syrupy overpowering kick yo ass of most double bocks I have had, thus the 5.0. I could drink a sixer no problem... until I have to wake up the next morning. Job well done.

Got this one from Wasatch, cheers John! Review based on notes
Pours orange/caramel with 2 fingers of beige head. Good head retention & lacing
S: Bready & spicy (cinnamon & brown sugar) with toasty malt & a bit of booze as this warms
T: Doughy, with some cinnamon, leafy & herbal hops, plus dryness, cakeyness & brown sugar up front. More cakeyness, dryness & pecans as this warms. Finishes dry with a nice caramel sweetness
MF: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation & a bit of stickyness & chewyness once this is warmer
Drinks easy the ABV is well disguised, the dryness detracts a bit . A very good dopple IMO

I found this at the Wasatch Pub in the Salt Lake Airport. An Autumn coloured beer that is extremely drinkable for the style; not too sweet and enough complexity once it warms up. I wished this was not so high in alcohol as it would make a great Fall drinking beer. I hardly noticed the ABV in this beer but felt it on the plane ride to Seattle

Great drinker. Excellent at high altitude! Warm amber color. Strong, clean taste on the palate. Minimal hop taste, but subtle and invites exploration. Pairs with most everything. Should be exported outside Utah. Sucks at tap abv. Head does not last long enough. Question choice in yeast.
