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.

Appears a clear brown color in my pilsner glass. A large head forms and slowly settles to a thick cap. Nice amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Rather timid aroma for an 8% ABV beer. Some bready malt and mild spice.

I can taste some caramel, bitter chocolate, and dark bread. Small alcohol presence and a little warmth in the finish.

Thin for the style and definately for a beer with this ABV. Carbonation is nice.

Unremarkable beer. Nothing wrong with that but I feel no need to visit this beer again.

Poured into a snifter.

3.0 A: Clear deep amber color. Just over a finger of beige frothy head. Retention is poor and only a few whisps of lacing are left.

3.5 S: Big toastiness. Moderate amounts of caramel, raisin, and plum. Brown sugar and nuttiness underneath.

3.5 T: Again lots of toastiness. Caramel, raisin, and nuttiness next. Plum and brown sugar to round thing off. Lightly boozy.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasant creaminess.

3.5 D: Tasty beer, but pretty standard doppelbock.
