Tasted 24 October 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark brown amber, some reddish hues. Not much head, and what there is fades fast. No lacing that I can see.

Smell is sugary, sugary, sugary. Brown sugar, molasses, any other kind you like. Not overpowering, but mostly one-dimensional. Some dark fruit, plums and figs. It's sweet, and could definitely do with some more complexity, but I like it.

Taste is also fairly sweet, but with less depth, less fruit. Drifts into a moderately bitter finish. Tastes fine, but it's shallow.

Medium-bodied, slick on the tongue. Medium-low carbonation. Works fine.

A solid, definitely above-average doppelbock. I like it; its main faults are that it doesn't measure up to the best in depth and complexity. But it's tasty.

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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass

Ap- pours a dark copper color with a hint of brown. White minimal head goes fast and just clings to the sides of the glass

Ar- biscuity malt, caramel, toffee, overall it smells sweet

T- very malty and sweet with some plum and other dark fruit notes and some caramel.

M- bubbly with medium body, it's a bit sticky too. This beer has a really smooth finish

O- My first shot at a double bock and this was really enjoyable. Will be trying more in the future.

From notes; best by 5/23/11, consumed 4/20/11

A - Pours amber with one finger of tan head. Head has pretty good retention.

S - Smells like bread and dried fruits, mostly raisin and plums.

T - Similar to the smell. Also getting some flavors of tea and light caramel malt. Finish has a bit of bitterness to it.

M - Medium mouthfeel, actually a bit thin. Slightly sticky but pretty clean. Finishes somewhat dry.

O - Pretty good doppelback, but doesn't really stand out. Alcohol is not apparent. Just a bit too thin.

Wasatch The Devastator Double Bock has a very thin, almost nonexistent, off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, honey color. There is a little lacing left behind. The aroma is subtle, but one can detect sweet, rich malt and candy or fruit. The flavor is of over-ripe fruit, pecan shells, rich barley malt, some chocolate, and syrupy sugar. It's a little bitter, but not particularly so. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, and The Devastator finishes smooth, sweet, and mellow. A little bit of the alcohol burn shows up on the back half. Overall, this is an excellent beer.
