Okay, so Wasatch is one of the worst craft brewers I know, if not THE worst. That being said I still had to try this.

Appearance : a cream soda/root beer colored body, topped by a 2 finger head - off white in color and leaving flicks of lacing behind. Opacity is about 30%.

Aroma : lots of toasted malt, roasted dry grains, a slight alcohol smell and slight bubble gum. A faint fruity note of banana and raisin is also detectable. Overall it smells like a strong Bock.

Taste : this is actually really good. Deep, heavy, roasted malts, charred raisin, banana peel, some burnt yet delicious alcohol, with an exceptionally dry finish.

Mouthfeel : very full bodied yet not too thick, it just swarms and fills the palate. It's really an excellent feel. It ends nice and dry. Breaths are almost like cotton.

Overall : time to invest in a six pack. Probably the best Doppelbock I've had to date, and by far the best Wasatch beer I've tried.

I have returned several times for more of the Devastator. I really enjoyed this beer. I like a good dark, full bodied taste, and this beer did not disappoint.

Color is nice and dark. Pours with simplicity, almost chocolaty.

Smell is full bodied, with several aromas. I could certainly get a hint of chocolate.

Smooth to drink, easy to sip, with a full swell of taste without the lasting after tastes of some.

Much recommended.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sweet malts. Taste is malts, dark breads, a touch of sweetness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Draft. Good looking medium to dark brown with a touch of mahogany; minimal head that didn't last. Not much of a smell, but predominantly sweet--couldn't say specifics. Taste is a bit on sweet side, too. Clean, smooth, tasty, decent texture. Alcohol wasn't present much in taste. I enjoyed it and would drink it again; in fact, I did order a second and my friend had three! I would drink this as an easy social beer or in a restaurant with my meal instead of a Shiner or dark Vienna Lager.

Was not a fan. First the smell reminded me of the smell of throwup at a college party. And the taste got worse with each sip

A - Pours a rich mahogany with a quickly dissipating head, minimal whispy lacing.
S - Has a stouts sweetness in aroma, very warm with some underlying maple notes, no alcohol presence.
T - Very light hop profile, slightly chocolate, lots of sweetness here, very mild bitterness. Medium body, decent mouthfeel, easy drinking.
O - A nice step up from Shiner Bock as far as depth of flavor and complexity is concerned. A great transitional beer for those wanting to get into craft beer.
V - Bought single, not sure of 6 pack pricing.
