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.

RABinVA (1009) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bomber poured into a goblet. Ruby brown with a big tan head that fades slowly, leaving no lacing. Very smooth but bold malt backbone and a nice hit of sweetness that isn’t at all overpowering. Nice, very warming amount of booze but very drinkable in the end.

Bomber->stem. Rusty brown with 1/2 inch light tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel, and hops. Taste is sweet malts, has a lingering alcohol aftertaste. Too sweet.

2011 bottling. Drank 2012-11-08. Deep reddish amber, unclear, fleeting head, no lace. Aroma is fairly big sweet malt, bread, yeast, fruit, and peppery spice. Flavor continues these with a fairly bitter and boozy build. It’s a bit syrupy on palate but dries well enough. Really a pleasant beer for how big it is and an amazing American version of a doppelbock. Seems true to form though perhaps a bit more bitter a finish than normal...but I like that.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of some generous trader. Thanks! Pours a hazy, dark rust orange appearance wit ha nice, big brown head. Really a rich herbal, noble hoppy, grainy caramel malty, mild white fruit (pear/apple), just a touch bitter aroma. Well carbonated. A bit chewy, molasses, vanilla, rich caramel malty, somewhat spicy, a touch nutty, herbal, grassy hoppy flavor with a light note of chocolate. Quite smooth. This is one of the better American-made doppelbocks that I’ve had in a while.

Darwenus (486) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Amber colored with a modest head. There isn’t a lot going on with the aroma, just a lightly malty, slightly sweet quality that’s something like a lighter barley wine. The taste is malty and a little sweet, but not overly so. The finish is crisp with a little bit of tingle.

I really don’t get a lot of smell off this one. It’s got a nice feel on the palate and not much on the aftertaste. Almost a little sweet, which is interesting...

My kind of beer all the way. Cannot think of any significant improvements that could be made to it. The bottle Im drinking from was the last one left on the shelf when I picked it up yesterday : )

A - Pours a fairly clear amber-brown with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of rich caramel malts, brown sugar, dark fruits, vanilla, molasses, some bready malts, and some booze. T - Starts off with a mix of rich caramelized malts and some raisin and other sweet dark fruits. Through the middle, brown sugar and molasses come through with some vanilla and bready malts. The finish is a mix of sweet caramelized malts, dark fruits, bready malts, and some booze. M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit thick with a sweet and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced doppelbock with a good strong and complex malt profile.

Bomber poured into glass. Doppelbocks are just too much for me, this one especially. Too sweet and heavy on the malt. Almost impossible for me to drink more then a glass.
