4.29/5 rDev +17.9%
Great drinker. Excellent at high altitude! Warm amber color. Strong, clean taste on the palate. Minimal hop taste, but subtle and invites exploration. Pairs with most everything. Should be exported outside Utah. Sucks at tap abv. Head does not last long enough. Question choice in yeast.

3.66/5 rDev +0.5%
Poured into a pilsner glass (all I had on hand).
Appearance: Transparent dark brown, decent head but dissipated quickly. Persistent light carbonation rising to the top.
Smell: Roasted malt, sweetness, kind of a burnt sugar/ caramel scent.
Taste: Relatively sweet malt dominates the palate, with a slight taste of alcohol underneath. No detectable hops or bitterness. Nutty/malt aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: You can feel more carbonation than you expect from the limited outpouring of bubbles from the glass. Thicker than your average beer and with a definite creamy feel, however certainly not as think as other dopplebocks out there.
Overall: It's really hard to go wrong with a dopplebock in general. With a name like "Devastator" it can't be a bad beer. I have no complaints with this brew, I have had better dopplebocks, but taste is a matter of opinion. If you're debating getting this beer, go ahead and give it a try, it's tasty and goes down almost too easy considering its' 8% ABV.
