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.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Poured a cloudy red with a very subtle nose. Very creamy tan head. However, flavor was a bit too sweet and raisiny for my taste. Very yeasty, rich mouthfeel.

ekstedt (5652) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015

Vignale (2241) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Mahognyfärgad med krämig smutsvitt skum. En dubbelbock i det övre abv-spektrat. Mådde bra av att bli lite varmare, då doft och smak växte och framstod relativt komplex. Len och lite trögflytande lager på lager öl. Maltig, brödig, sädig men också mer mogna söta smaker av torkad frukt smat en lite smutsigare jordig dimension i den annars robusta rustika men också elegant smakbilden. Mycket trevlig.

_angst_ (3146) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Bomber courtesy of rlgk. Pours clear copper with a rather small frothy offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and slightly floral with bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, plums, lemon peal and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly floral with sweet dark bread, toffee, caramel, prunes, hay, moist soil, walnuts, alcohol and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent, slightly boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with sweet dark bread, toffee, hay, moist soil, walnuts, alcohol and lemon zest. Possibly but too sweet and slightly too boozy but I quite like it. Nice quite hoppy doppelbock!

bb (7051) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015

Ernest (6418) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle (2014 vintage). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (orange). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Not much going on in this rendition, but it’s at least drinkable.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bomber pours a clear dark amber/brown with small beige head and not much lacing. Aroma is not strong, but has oak, licorice, cardamom, and lots of bready malts. Taste is sweet at first with a bitter boozy finish. Body is medium to full with a slightly oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. I love doppelbocks, but this one is a bit strong and simple for me.

pilsnerrogge (2553) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
Bottled:
Pours deep, clear amber with a mid sized head.
Sweet aroma of red berries, toffee, dark currants and a little bit of licorice.
Sweet and sticky mouth feel.
Malty flavour with hints of toffee, caramel, syrup and brown sugar leading to a boozy and bitter finish.
Pretty good, perhaps a little bit too strong.

Gbgbrouge (200) - SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Poured from bottle, slightly hazy dark red copper with low off white head. Aroma is mild with notes of caramel, dried fruit, vanilla and butter. Taste is sweet with a big malt body and some bitterness in the finish.

rarbring (1603) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
Aroma: Smelling of bread, toffee, cardamom and vanilla.
Appearance: A hazy brown colored beer. A low off-white head with small lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting toffee, bread, chocolate, grass and vanilla.
Palate: Low carbonation, a soft texture. A big body with a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Too young, a sweeter less hoppy variant would be better IMHO.
Note: Bottle 650 ml at home. Reviewed 2015-01-04.
