COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
S’muttonator is a tasty mixture of German ingredients and good ol’ fashioned New England tenaciousness. Our brewers take 30 hours to brew a single batch of this traditional Double Bock. Take your time and enjoy its rich, malty, and deceptively smooth flavor.

The aroma is faint, but caramel seems to be the dominate fragrance. A clear mahogany pour with a rapidly dissapating white head and no lacing. The taste, as expected, is very malty, some sweetness, and a touch of alcohol burn with a dryish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, ok, but there are better examples of Dobblebock out there.

Pours mahogany color with a foamy off white head. Notes of tootsie roll, caramel, earthy cops, sugar cereal, and must. Medium weight mouthfeel with well hidden alcohol.

Draft at RFD. The pour is a nice rubt brown color. The aroma is sweet malt, some toffee and caramel. The taste is nice and flavorful. A very solid dobbelbock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours brown with red highlights. Nose is surprising; bready, a bit of raspberry, dark malts, maybe a bit of brown sugar. Taste is ridiculously malty, brown sugar, bready, very sweet, a hint of fruity raspberry notes. I don't love the style, it's ok.

Poured a medium brown with a flaky head. Nose of slight malt. Hot in the mouth. Decent lacing. Good for the season, but won’t buy again.

"kinda of a high abv for a traditional doppelbock, but it totally works. Another standout from a solid brewer. loved the light, esrthy hops and the layers of malt in the nose and flavor. VERY drinkable for a strong brew. Thanks heybeerman!"

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a beautiful reddish amber with a creamy tan head that mostly lasts. Nose is sweet malt and caramel. Very creamy with a rich soft velvety texture. Taste is bold and full of sweet malt, caramel, maple syrup with just a touch of hops to prevent cloying. An excellent dopplebock that pairs well with smoked cheese or brats off the grill.

Rating from 2010: Auf der Flasche ist ein struppiger, leicht in der Mauser befindlicher Ziegenbock abgebildet - sieht sehr merkwürdig, aber irgendwie witzig aus. Das Bier ist orange-braun und schön trüb. Sehr malzig-schwerer Geruch. Riecht schon sehr gehaltvoll! Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-süffig und sehr schön malzig. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier komplex-malzig und angenehm süß. Schwerer Körper. Leichte Röstmalztöne. Ganz leicht säuerlich. Dabei auch gelbe Früchte und eine leicht mild-hefige Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr fruchtig-malzig. Lang anhaltend. Ganz leicht süßlich-klebrig, aber nicht negativ auffallend. Dabei auch noch ganz leichte Röstmalzanklänge - in die Richtung eines wenig-süßen Malzbonbons gehen. Alkoholische Schärfe ist nur ganz leicht spürbar.
--> Ein sehr schöner, komplexer Doppelbock! Vielen Dank an Micha!
--> 13+12+13+13 = 12,70
