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.

Clear ruby body with a tight, silky beige head. Aroma of toasty malt, fairly prominent earthy hops, and noticeable alcohol. Fairly sweet beer with brown sugar and maple characters and medium bitterness. Thick, fizzy mouthfeel. A very straight-forward, strong double bock.

radiomgb (2503) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Amber-caramel in colour with a thin tan coloured head. Aroma was of caramel malt, cookies, dark fruits and brown sugar. The flavour was of cookie malts, raisins, some spice and pepper, minor alcohol, slightly sweet. Medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a medium bitterness, medium length.

2004 Vintage: I should rate it a perfect on the name alone... Dark brown color with a thin head. Aroma of brown sugar and smoke. Very malty body with a good caramel hit and some nearly crunchy sugarness. It’s definitely sweet and so something to sit back and relax with. Very enjoyable!

dark amber, a little cloudy, creamy head, lots of caramel malts is the nose, taste has the same, some brown sugar tastes as well, gets a little bitter on the tail, followed by some strong spices, not a bad dopple, but a little plain.

notalush (5351) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Deep amber with impressive off-white lacework - rich, complex aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, some spices, alcohol in the background - the flavor has some of the largest caramel presence I’ve tasted in a beer - cinnamon and sugar, some earthy, belgian-like qualities - a hint of nutmeg and chocolate near the back - very nice.

Pours brown like maple syrup with a thick brownish head. Aroma has caramel malts, raisin, apple, brown sugar and toffee. Taste has is alcoholic for a Dopplebock yet quite effective. It is certainly a good imitation of a Doppelbock. It is Americanized because of the hops especially.

DocLock (8527) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours hazy dark brown with medium, light tan head. Aroma of bready malt, dark fruit, cognac, cabernet. Tastes caramel malty, with big dark fruit presence and a dense, rich, complex finish that lacks balance to an extent. Not in my elite echelon of doppelbocks, bit this one holds its own.

Bomber bottle from Mike: Ruby highlight deep amber hue with a nice frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of rich caramelized and burnt malts, apple, fig, brown sugar, earthy esters, and a hint of phenolic activity. The taste starts sweet, sugary, and a bit more fruity than I expected. I get some spicy bitterness and sublime vinous notes as well. The feel is smooth and lush, not heavy but not thin either. The alcohol is noticeable and creates a warming upon drinking. Despite some flaws, this beers overall taste makes up for them. This is one dopple you know is a big one. Enjoy.
