This beer packs a punch at 8.5% ABV and the flavor is bold with lots of malt. I'm a hop head, so the toffee & caramel bomb came off a bit too harsh. Wasatch's packaging is dope with the Devastator character on the label. I got a good buzz off the beer, but it was bitter going down the drain.

Appearance: It has a nice deep brown color to it with some amber hues. It has a nice off-white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of caramel, butterscotch, some nuttiness, toasty malts and sweet dark fruit in the back.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a loads of sweet caramel, nuttiness, toasty/buiscuity malts and sweet dark fruit (mainly raisins and plums).

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Enjoyable Doppelbock.

Serving type: Can

Do I have the same beer? Normally I adore doppelbock but this isn't doing it for me. My favorite part is the label. "Food pairings: front of cow, back of cow, rattlesnake." Pours a deep coffee color with ruby undertones. I smell garden veggies. Coffee dominates the taste. I should know better, I think this will taste better when it warms a little.

Ruby chestnut color with almost zero head on the pour. The smell is the strongest category for me. Caramel, sweet malts, nuttiness, raisins. Taste is similar with a drying finish.

A very pleasing domestic doppel bock. The head left nice lacing on the glass. Appearance-wise the color is a nice brown. A few small bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass. This lager's flavor is mild and malty. The mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. An excellent example of what a US brewer can do with the double bock style. Well done Wasatch! I will be having this one again.
