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.

Dark, strong and malty. Seemed little out of balance with noticeable alcohol burn. Otherwise, full, deep and satisfying.

Erzengel (1923) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
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

22 oz bomber for 7 bucks. Pours clear dark brownish red with an off-white head. Strong aroma of caramel with fruits underneath. Taste is a lot of caramel and quite sweet. The alcohol is masked pretty well. I really can’t taste any. Body is medium, average carbonation. I expected a bit thicker beer though. All in all it’s pretty good. Not very complex but decent and strong.

Bottle. Smuttonator pours with a ruby red/amber color with a medum sized light tan head. Aroma is sweet, almost sickly sweet with plenty of dried fruits (grapes, plumbs) with a boatload of caramel notes. Flavor is a malt bomb, with a nice undercurrent of dark fruits. Surprisingly, the alcohol is pretty well masked, but with all the residual sugars in this one, it really is noticeable if you’re drinking the entire bottle. Share this with friends.

boto (1808) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2013
22oz bomber: This one pours a fairly clear, dark amber/mahogany color. There was about a finger of a khaki colored head on it that didn’t linger long but left some lacing. This one has a nice nose. Lots of malts, yet there isn’t much sweetness coming through. Caramel, dark fruits are the main components. Maybe some toffee also. The taste is excellent. A hint of sweetness, tons of malts. Faint roasted malts. Smooth. Overall an excellent doppelbock.

From a 22 oz bottle shared with Ryan. Pours a light cola with an off white head. Rich malty aroma. Flavors of caramel and toffee. Lovely flavors.

EKForReal (6) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2013 does not count
Man this is a delicious beer. This one pours a lovely reddish brown, just a touch dark for the style, with an inch of nice tan head. Aroma is sweet malty goodness. Candy, caramel,and just a little bit of toast. The taste follows right behind the nose. She is bready and a little sweet but not at all cloying. Nice big lager yeast fruit balanced by the lightest of hop presence. This big malty girl is beautifully balanced even if she is big for the style. And no part of that nearly 10% is noticed (until you finish the bomber that is!).

ADesenberg (500) - Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Draft: brown, with a tan head. It’s roasty and caramel in the aroma. The taste is much the same, but with some grassiness. Nothing too special, but wouldn’t call it bad by a longshot.

sfontain (770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
22 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Hazy, deep, red-brown; 2-finger beige head disappears completely. Aroma is deep and heavy; sweet, malty, apple, raisin, toffee, bubble gum, yeast. Flavor rich, sweet, chewy, malty, caramel, vanilla, nutty, grass, a little spicy, and just barely some alcohol warmth in the exhale. Medium-thick body with more-than-average carbonation; medium coarseness in the bubbles but this really froths up in the mouth; slick, almost oily; barely sticky. There is virtually no alcohol presence here; well done for a nearly 10% beer. This one came out of nowhere; -nice- beer, Smuttynose.
