The ‘-ator’ suffix that’s found on the names of double bock beers around the world is one of the most respected traditions in a beer world that seems to be focused on ignoring standards and customs. Smuttynose is proud to adhere to that tradition in the naming, brewing methods and taste of S’muttonator Double Bock.
S’muttonator Double Bock displays the characteristically full malt flavor that can only come from using the best German specialty malts and a traditional decoction mashing technique. The extra effort also adds a lot of extra time to each batch, but that’s the only way to get the nuttiness, toffee notes and a characteristically smooth melanoidin character beer drinkers expect from a double bock. When you drink your S’muttonator, you’ll see that it’s time well spent.

Tempting smell. Average head. Fruity sweetness, but less sugar than most doppelbocks. Sturdy hoppiness without exaggeration. Some dark chocolate and lots of malt and bready tones. Complex. Again.

Really liked this. Brown pour with red tint and minimal off white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, nutty and you get a nice warm alcohol feel.

Linnet (1441) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Jam, marmalade, earthy hops, warming and very malty. Copper colour, medium beige head, lacing. Big cloying sweetness, medium bite too sweet for my liking. Fullbodied, average carbonation, warming finish. Good example of one of my least favourite styles.

Vignale (2847) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Mahognyfärgad med krämig smutsvitt skum. En dubbelbock i det övre abv-spektrat. Mådde bra av att bli lite varmare, då doft och smak växte och framstod relativt komplex. Len och lite trögflytande lager på lager öl. Maltig, brödig, sädig men också mer mogna söta smaker av torkad frukt smat en lite smutsigare jordig dimension i den annars robusta rustika men också elegant smakbilden. Mycket trevlig.

_angst_ (4124) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Bomber courtesy of rlgk. Pours clear copper with a rather small frothy offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and slightly floral with bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, plums, lemon peal and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly floral with sweet dark bread, toffee, caramel, prunes, hay, moist soil, walnuts, alcohol and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent, slightly boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with sweet dark bread, toffee, hay, moist soil, walnuts, alcohol and lemon zest. Possibly but too sweet and slightly too boozy but I quite like it. Nice quite hoppy doppelbock!

Ernest (7025) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle (2014 vintage). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (orange). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Not much going on in this rendition, but it’s at least drinkable.
