COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Finish is spicy and fruity with some chocolate and well hidden alcohols. Distinctly bitter and quite dry, overall balanced finish. Really nice.

thepatrickman (679) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Big and malty are the two words for this. The malt flavor dominates throughout, and it’s really complex and tasty. Lots of caramel and fruit flavor, with a bit of grainy toastiness too. Great example of the style.

With Z, pours a rich black pour with a sustained beige head. Nose is deep caramel and toffee, sweet and sugary. Taste is sweet chocolate malt with the alcohol punching through, quite tasty since I do not relish doppels. Finishes on the same sweet chocolate tasting notes with a moderately long finish. Good Doppelbock. quaff score 7 / 10
