If you’re going to sin, sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that – a cult following in Utah?!

Oh what a silky smooth double bock; worthy of induction into the AW BHoF! This brew poured up a rich mahogany-colored body with a one-finger off-white bubbly head that dissipated quickly but left amazing lacing effects on the glass. Aromas caramel, toasted malts, warm biscuits (Hungry Jack style), cocoa powder (like Nestles Quik) and a light hint of espresso. Flavors of the same but oh so wonderfully balanced. Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated, and goes down real smooth with no bitter aftertastes. Easy to drink so keep an eye on how many you have had!

Pours mahogany with a tan head. Smells strongly malted with a touch of soy sauce and hops. Tastes sweetly malted with a touch of syrup-like sweetness on the back end. Full-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Wasatch Devastator finishes mostly clean with a touch of sweetness.

Very nice American effort at a Doppelbock. Not quite as malty as an EKU or Celebrator Doppelbock, but very respectable.

Well, I thought this was a pretty decent beer, after the very first sip, which is a bit too alcoholic. Then a nice coaty roastiness comes in. Solid.

Pours mahogany red with a thin tan head mostly lasting. Nose is caramel. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, light molasses, The 8% ABV is well hidden but does warm one’s innards. Nice clean sweet aftertaste. An excellent double bock which stands as a banquet unto itself and pairs magnificently with mussels or smoked Pacific salmon.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 You’re liable to get shot if they find you drinking this in Utah (it’s a joke), but I wouldn’t be surprised if they string you up on a fence along the highway like roadkill. Great beer, so it’s worth that risk.

Definite aroma of a German bock style beer with strong sweet malt aromas and that "thing" that makes it German (diacetyl?) Crystal clear brown/orange/amber that reminds me of whiskey and a low volume white head. Immediate bock flavor with a light candied sweetness and buttery taste and feel. This is followed by a balancing hop bitterness that matches the sweetness of the malt perfectly. Finishes with a lasting sweetness and woody sour/bitterness on the tongue. If I didn’t know it was from Utah, I’d swear I was drinking a German lager. Delicious!

12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool. Aroma: Hazelnut, cocoa, basically this smells like Ferrero Rochers smell. Awesome stuff! Appearance: Translucent red/orange. Even with an aggressive pour, no real head. Taste: Hazelnut, coffee, dark, dark chocolate. Some fruit. A mild soy sauce-y flavor. Bittersweet. Palate: Rich. Medium body; nice presence, but not oppressive. Flavors linger a little bit. Overall: A lot better than what I was expecting! Really nice aroma and flavors going on here; not your typical caramel-y / malty doppelbock. The 8% abv creeps up on you! Really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 I was delighted to find this at one of the franchise liquor stores in a small town in the middle of Utah. To my palate, nice balance, slight sweetness, reasonable hop, good mouth feel. I don’t think this rating is based solely on finding civilization in an unexpected place. UPDATE 6 YEARS LATER. This is a remarkably simple Dopplebock. It is very, very, sweet, almost sugar simple, with light caramelization, then burnt tones, from the malts, with minimal malt complexity. It really is about a 2.5 or a 25 depending on the rating system used.

Bottle at Squatter’s in SLC airport. Nice pour. Mahogany brown with a tight head. The aroma is full of rich malt. Indeed this drinks with a full-up caramel kick, strong and rich, particularly for a Utah brew. Good! (#3623, 8/31/2009)
