4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

bottle. pours dark and deep. nose is sweet raisiny and boozed. mouth is quite sweet with raisins, dark malt, adjunct and additive sugar-like. overall, at least here in utah, a good economic supplement for the on tap and low strength beers served at all local venues.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Dark mahogany with an off white head. Bready, slightly roasted malts, some caramel, some toast and raisins. Sweet, higher then expected carbonation, moderate but off putting body, sweetness is too much, becomes slightly dry but then the caramel and sugars just overwhelm.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pleasant sweet aroma, almost of raspberries, with a slight floral hop aroma. Pours with thin off-white head. Redish copper in color. Very sweet, but not malty. Very strong sweet corn taste. When held on pallet to warm, provides a very subtle hop bitterness. Very smooth on the pallet, perhaps slightly under carbonated. Overall a good beer if served cold, but if warmed it presents some off flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes almost like coke. The smoothest 8 percent I’ve had due to the fact that the taste is so simple. Not a bad beer, but I was expecting something more powerful from "The Devastator".

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A malt forward aroma with hints of dark fruit. A translucent dark brown pour with a mostly none existent off-white head. Taste is sweet with some toasted malt and bready notes. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, not the taste bomb some double blocks are, but very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Dark amber color, clean. Very light and simple caramel aroma. The flavor too is simple, basically caramel, with a hint of cereals; moderate sweetness; lox bitterness.
A drinkable beer, but not a Doppelbock to remember.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong caramel, not too much alcohol smell. Very dark, can’t even see through it. Sweet tasting, with an edge of sour. Surprisingly thin and easy to drink for a double bock. Very good doppelbock. The bavarians would be impressed.
