Came part of a trade from pokesbeerdude. Thanks!

A- Transparent amber with a orange tint. Small bright white head.

S- Large malt presence, caramel, strong booze.

T- Right along with the smell. A lot of malt. Followed by a caramel sweetness and a strong boozy finish.

M/D- Thick bodied, medium/high carbonation. Low drinkability. This is a very poorly made doppelbock.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A – Clear reddish brown with a white, one-finger, sea foam looking head. Lacing is clumpy.

S – Strong aroma of sweet caramel malt. Undertones of molasses and toffee. Again, this smells really sweet.

T – Taste matches the nose. Plenty of sweetness from the caramel malt, but manages to not be cloying. Slightest hint of earthy hops in the finish. Not very complex, and kind of boring on the tongue after a while. Slightest hint of booze in the mid palate.

M – Pretty much perfect for the flavor profile; medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Thankfully no syrupy feel with all that sweetness, and it drinks like a beer.

O – Hard to really say much more about this one. A solid enough double bock, but nothing that would make me really remember this or rush out to buy it again.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Clear auburn-brown. Rich head, decent lace.

S: Sweet and malty.

T: Deep caramel and dark malts. Alcohol flavor a factor. Tight bitter on the finish with an aspirin-like astringency. This weird aftertaste is one of the things I notice to be pretty consistent in Wasatch brews.

M: Rich. Dry finish. Medicinal.

D: Good with the exception of that weird aftertaste. Some room for improvement here.

Thanks Fishdawg71 for including this one as an extra.

Really cool artwork on the bottle. A ram exploding out of what appears to be downtown Salt Lake - flames and all. "Utah will never be the same."

Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass.

Dark brown color with 1/2 finger tan head that leaves solid, fine bubble lacing.

Bready malt aroma comes across strong.

Full moutfeel and rich bready malt flavor. Seem to pick up a touch of chocolate aroma and finish as it warms.

Dry and not the least bit sweet which scores points for me.

Poured into a perfect pint glass.

A. Dark amber with almost no head and no lace.

S. I'm struggling to find any aroma coming off this beer. I'm hardly getting anything apart from a faint whiff of caramel.

T. Given that there smell was so non-existent, the taste is surprisingly strong, but not exactly what I was expecting. Much more toffee and caramel than is usual, and some oxidised sherry-like notes which are quite pleasant to my palate, but shouldn't be in a doppelbock. A faint hint of bitterness in the finish.

M. Medium bodied and very little carbonation.

O. A pleasant enough beer to drink but not a great doppelbock. They've got the malt-forward aspect right but it's a bit on the sweet side, and there's definitely an old ale character to it.

Look: cooper to dark....great looking
smell: not that overpowering. has some butterscotch smell to it.
Taste: sweat, but rich
mouthful: Is great. It has a slight carbonization to it but really rolls in the mouth well.
Drinkablity- I think it is nice. I enjoy it.

I am struggling to describe tonight...I guess my mind is just not with it but let me say this...

I really enjoyed this beer and it was very tasty. I would really enjoy this as a premeal beer or perhaps with some pork.
