COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-Style lager is a big beer. A very big very big beer. We think it will earn some "Big Love" from the folks in the Land of Zion. We predict once this beer is discovered "Utah will never be the same". We ask, as with all our products, you enjoy this brew with care and caution.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Deepred-brown pour with a foamy and lacy tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, toffee, brown sugar and ripe fruit. Nice flavor of smooth sweet malt, toasted nuts brown sugar and a touch of fruit. A touch watery on the palate, but nicely carbonated. A little alcohol and spice linger on the finish. A very nice brew.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 29, 2008
12 oz bottles from State Liquor Store (SLC) and Douglas88. Nose of brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, and a background plum note; dark rusty red with a medium beige head; flavor has some coffee, caramel, nuts, and fruitiness. Finish is a very light bitterness and alcohol warmth.

Rusty (1533) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Pours a brown to reddish brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is caramel, malt, toasted nuts, toffee. Thin and watery but still flavorful. Decent bock.

Doppelganger (1387) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle, from Douglas88. Thanks! Red/brown pour with a deep layer of rough tan bubbles, settling with a bunch of lacing. Dry caramel aroma, raisins, rustic wood, cinnamon. Chalky mineral flavor blended with a nice raw sugar sweetness, raw walnuts, some interesting viney notes along the edges. A bit hot and not as focused as a good German doppel, but a ton of flavor and a very respectable brew.

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottled, thanks to Eric! Poured clear iced tea brown with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma was toasty with caramel and brown sugar at the forefront.. touch of beet sugar and alcohol warmth on the back. The flavor opened with sour darker fruit skins that came out of nowhere.. aged, dry caramel carried the middle and really dried out the palate.. grainy brown sugar and leafy bitterness found the edges.. finished short, but warm and spicy, leaving peppery alcohol on the lips. Medium-bodied and fleeting on the palate. very dry.. some nice components in there, but it struck me as powerfully average overall.

BelgianBeerGal (3022) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottled. 8 ABV from Utah, nice work. Average doppelbock. Pours a clear mahongany colour with a small head. Malty aroma with caramel. Flavour was more caramel malt plus some dusty baking ingredients. Little touch of alcohol too. Okay.

travita (3714) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Red to brown in color with a beige colored head. Clear. Smell is buscuits, caramel, and malts. taste is sweet, caramel, almost nutty. Ok but nothing special.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2008
crystal clear yellowy brown color with a long lasting light tan head. smells quite malty... floral alcohol shows and doesn’t try to hide, grain, chocolate, caramel and toasted nuts. the flavor is quite the same as the aroma... toasty caramel graininess, nuts, chocolate and a dry grainy finish. alcohol is not noticed in the flavor. nutty chocolate-y aftertaste. light to medium body given the abv% and malt sugars... watery mouth feel and an all around ’dead’ texture on the tongue...

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with douglas88 (thanks!). Poured a medium copperish color with a smaller sized off white head. Slightly hazy. Aromas of toasted caramel, some roast, toffee, and nuts. Tastes of caramel (lots), ligth chocolate, roast, and nuts. Alcohol content well hidden.

Bottles from dchmela and footbalm. Thanks guys!
Pours a nice dark clear reddish brown with a smallish beige head. Smell is metal and oxidation perhaps. Taste is chocolatey, toasty bread, and caramel with a light bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Tastes a lot better than it smells, I thought. Medium bodied with normal carbonation.
