Price: $1.89
Purchased: May 2, 2015

Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 23, 2015

Poured a reddish, brown, amber semi-clear color with four fingers of khaki tan, frothy head that immediately started dissipating. Minimal wet lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled booziness right up front, followed by caramel, plum, roasty malts, honey nuts, toffee and dark red apple. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was slightly better than the nose, coming in with rich, creamy, roasty malts, caramel, roasty nuts, plum and very light chocolate. The 8 percent ABV is hidden. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25)

This beer really grew on me. Maybe I just enjoy the style, but I was really digging it. Wish I had more than one. (Overall - 4.00)

Good doublebock, not in same class as German standards but not a bad try. I'd drink it anytime

- a smooth beer with slight hops and alot of roasted grains
-to carbonated for my liking
- good attempt at a german classic

Appearance : a cream soda/root beer colored body, topped by a 2 finger head - off white in color and leaving flicks of lacing behind. Opacity is about 30%.

Aroma : lots of toasted malt, roasted dry grains, a slight alcohol smell and slight bubble gum. A faint fruity note of banana and raisin is also detectable. Overall it smells like a strong Bock.

Taste : this is actually really good. Deep, heavy, roasted malts, charred raisin, banana peel, some burnt yet delicious alcohol, with an exceptionally dry finish.

Mouthfeel : very full bodied yet not too thick, it just swarms and fills the palate. It's really an excellent feel. It ends nice and dry. Breaths are almost like cotton.

Overall : time to invest in a six pack. Probably the best Doppelbock I've had to date, and by far the best Wasatch beer I've tried.

I have returned several times for more of the Devastator. I really enjoyed this beer. I like a good dark, full bodied taste, and this beer did not disappoint.

Color is nice and dark. Pours with simplicity, almost chocolaty.

Smell is full bodied, with several aromas. I could certainly get a hint of chocolate.

Smooth to drink, easy to sip, with a full swell of taste without the lasting after tastes of some.

Much recommended.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sweet malts. Taste is malts, dark breads, a touch of sweetness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
