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.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Bottle. Chestnut color with a small tan head. Malty aroma with hints of butterscotch. Mildly sweet malt flavor with some dark fruits and butterscotch again. If it wasn’t for the slight butterscotch aroma and flavor, I would have given this beer a much higher rating.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2005
Sampled at the Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a coppery color with no head. Aroma of dark fruits, malt and alcohol. Flavor of dark fruits, malt and alcohol with a bitter finish. Light to medium body, syrupy texture. Good but nothing impressive.

Thanks to Jooeec5 and Jim. This special bottle poured dark mahogany, like fine wood cabinets. Big fruity aroma and had nice tan head. There was a taste of caramale and malts, full mouth feel. Good carbination as well. I enjoyed this and would grab it again if I see it.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Beautiful clear mahogany with a thick off-white head. Aroma of bread, caramel, floral hops and a zing of alcohol. Very sweet and malty. Taste has notes of roasted malt, dark fruit/dates, smoke/peat, caramel, brown sugar, nuts, breadiness, chocolate, a hint of whiskey and a solid dose of hops. Some alcohol in the finish along with some roastiness and moderate bitterness. Full, round and creamy on the palate with subtle carbonation. Nice puffy lacework with great head retention. Overall, a very nice beer.

Man, this just, once again, proves how awesome Smuttynose is. Viva New Hampshire!!! Dark brown/blood red color with a fruity aroma. Big malty taste that is smooth smooth smooth. Love name of it too (a sheep on the bottle, hence the name). I’m going to buy a frickin’ case of this.

sloth (2520) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Small tan head thats short lived with slight lace. Clear, dark amber/red hued brew. Medium sweet malt nose with hints of caramel and a weeeee bit of alcohol, errrrrrr. Med/full body, silky smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol up front, cherries, bready malts and a faint roastiness top it off. Finish is medium dry with some warming alc. heat FO SHO! Needs to lay down fer awhile?? Still an interesting ride though. Again, Again!!

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2005
On draught January 2005 at Redbones. Delightful color to this, reds, golds, oranges and coppers all mix to form a brilliant, deep, colorful body. Small light beige head. Aroma of German yeast, smooth hops and sweet caramel and toffee. Very sweet up front, with apparent hops quickly coming to balance. Remains mostly sweet however, with a tingly, strong carbonation to it and a medium-full body. Brandy soaked fruit, bittersweet yeast and orange citrus flavors all come in to play. Ends on a candied orange note with some lightly sticky caramel lurking. I don’t like what they did with the hops here, this dosent seem very traditional. Call me old fashioned, but I’d like a whole lot less in the way of citric hops and bitterness. Little to any chocolate and not nearly as much yeast flavor as I would like. That being said, I will give it points for potential, as I’m sure this stuff will age gracefully; it should lose a lot of the annoying carbonation, the hops should die down and perhaps some earthy yeast tones will emerge. Will be back in a year.
