3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 355ml. -Finally! The most expected beers have arrived! Well, the story goes like this - my friend "Dragan the Drot" went to live to USA, Salt Lake City, so Iíve asked him to bring me some Wasatch beers when he would come to visit Croatia. So, he came here some four years ago, but have brought no beers. Then, a week later, his girlfriend came too, and he said she was bringing the beers. But, again no beers - they said she was thirsty and drank them while waiting for plane to catch....hmm?! Some time after that, he has sent a package - I though this is it, but no, he has sent a bottle of tequilla! (very good tequila but never mind). And now, after six years of waiting, my friend has come to visit again and this time he has brought a bunch of Wasatchs beers plus one Squatters! Heeeellll Yeaaahhhh!!!
Now something about beer itself...Clear amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, low carbonation, pure caramel in rather dusty nose. Toasted malt, caramel, light fruity, bready hoppy and slight alcoholic with some nutty notes in the sweetish finish. Funny memorandum on back label.

Las Vegas, NV - Smithís Food & Drugs - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark orange, sticky off-white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Aroma has some sweet molasses, a touch of light bubble gum. Flavor is smooth and warming with some light bubble gum accents, a touch of light dates, some hints of maple syrup and a touch of maple syrup. Mouthfeel is smooth and warming. Nice nightcap after a long day of hiking in Zion.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep amber in color with a minimal beige head. Nose is sweet, but lightly earthy and floral. Itís got a great creamy feel and some solid caramel and bready notes, bananas, and lightly spiced. A little of that earthiness from the aroma comes through in the taste, it reminds me of rye bread. At 8% its hard to imagine drinking through a bunch of these, but Iíll gladly buy it again.

bottle - Pours clear amber with a small, light tan head. The aroma is of rich caramel malt with some bready malt. It has a sweet, robust, toasted caramel malt flavor. Itís full bodied and tasty, a very solid, enjoyable doppelbock.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a darkish but clear amber with very little head, no lacing, plenty of carbonation. Overly sweet and malty for my tastes with too much alcohol burn. Bread, raisins, caramel and soap. Not a disaster but not really into this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, interesting slogan, I havenít spent much time in Utah so Iím not sure if it will ever be the same but it is good to know they are brewing higher alcohol beers these days. Smooth tastte of chocolate malt followed by a warm burn of the alcohol I donít know if it was because mine was rather warm but the alcohol taste was quite pronounced. Solid beer but probably would not buy again

Bottle pour. Clean, dark copper in glass. Thin head. Aroma is cereal grains, mocha and caramel. Medium body. Taste is malt centric. A semi bitter finish Will Utah be the same? Most likely. Well done.
