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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A. Held to the light, cola colored. A sliver of head remains after pouring.
S. Classic malt lager smell
T. Tastes of malt, slightly boozy, raisin
M. Strong malt backbone, washes down clean leaving a bitter aftertaste on the back of the tongue somewhat bubbly
O. Overall this beer was a pleasant surprise. I decided to try it because it was almost sold out at the local specs. But there could have been another reason for that. After I got home I noticed my receipt, they only charged me 1.25 for a six pack. Who knows why this was the last one on the shelf but I am glad I tried it. I don't dorm to many craft lagers but this one I would purchase again.
