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.

Underdogs88 (150) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Light caramel, toffee & prunes on the nose with moderate malt character. Appearance is a ruby brown with a small off white head with poor retention. Flavor is malty with mild chocolate notes. Prune and plum flavors are also noticeable. Bitterness is high for a dopplebock. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation. Overall, it's ok. The bitterness is too high per style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (1587) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2014
Sweet and floral flavor. The scent felt mostly empty and watery. Is this a defect beer perhaps? Quite so bitter aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Easy to drink to have such a high alcohol percentage. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

chribban (206) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Clear, dark mahognycolored beer with a two finger high, beige head. Lacing stays on the glass when the head dissolves.

Nose: Plum, apples, raisin, brown sugar, caramel malt and nuts.
Taste: Sweet caramel malt, a LOT of malt! Raisin, toffee, nuts and bread.
Body: Medium to full body with small carbonation. Ligth bitter together with a high malty sweetness.
9.8% ABV made me think of a alcohol-bomb but it’s well hidden in the sweet malt. To my suprise it’s not at all boozy!

Great doppelbock! Not as great as some "original" German versions but still very pleasant!
