This beer poured an amber color with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is grainy, bread-like, and sour with the yeast noticeable. The taste is malty and sweet with some spice noticeable. The mouthfeel is full, but I would have enjoyed a bit more body. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. It seems to get more complex as it warms – definitely recommended.

Appearance: Slightly hazy dark amber in color, with a large, dense white head, which retains very well. Scattered, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is slight.

Aroma: Lots of caramel, sweet vinous alcohol, and some bread malts.

Taste: Opens with lots of toasted malts and caramel, as the taste progresses, the caramel lingers on, with the sweetness intensifying. Towards the end of the taste, there is an earthy, nutty note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant and drinkable example.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.

A nice dark coffee color with a firm but thin light tan head and great lacing. The aroma is a deep coffee malt and peat, deep and edible. The first mouthful reveals a medium bodied tangy medley of coffee smoke and apple malt. This is almost a porter, quite drinkable but there is a bit of alcohol presence enough to avoid guzzling. Some grassy notes. Smoothly carbonated, very unique, highly recommended.

Beer #40 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

Doppelbocks. Bleh. I rarely find one that I like. That being said, I may not even know what a doppelbock is supposed to taste like anymore.

This brew is nice and malty with a slight sweet tone to it that is smooth. Really smooth. And I think that is what the definition of this beer is: smooth. I really don't have much to say beyond that really.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass tulip. Best by 10/23/14 near bottom edge of bottle. Rec'd as a gift from little sis Tami.

A: Clear mahogany, lightish, with 1-finger beige frothy head with good retention and a nice line of lacing around the top of the pour. (4)

S: Strong toasted caramel malt aroma with light herbal. earthy hops, no yeast character, some bready maltiness and date/raisin aromas (3.75)

T: Great flavor, very toasty and pretty sweet but very smooth and drinkable despite the high ABV. Medium caramel and toffee flavors dominate but allow some date, raisin, and prune flavors to poke through. Medium sweetness but not cloying, leaves a pleasant bready, honey graham cracker taste. Minimal hopping with light-medium bitterness. No real yeast character and the alcohol is well hidden. (4.25)

M: Slightly sticky feel, medium-full body, with light-medium carbonation. (3.75)

O: I enjoyed this beer, and I didn't have too high of hopes after trying Polygamy Porter last night. Devastator is a much better crafter beer -- nice toasty caramel sweetness that brings a good kick of maltiness without being cloying. SMooth and drinkable, even at 8%. Great job.
