Solid double bock. Nice and malty without being sweet. Best Wasatch beer by far.

Bronze, clear. Filmy white head. Cereal aroma with dark syrump. Sweet, mossy astringency, a little tinny - true to style. Malt, lotsa malt. Slightly heavy mouth. Woody/mossy finish with cherry tones. Hay Merchant, Houston, on tap.

Bottle from AJ’s fine foods Scottsdale. Pours brown with no head to speak of. Not much on the nose. A bit of malty sweetness on the tongue. Hides the alcohol well. Eh!

A clear dark amber Bock with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet fruity malt with light sulfur notes, strange. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, licorice, OK. Bottle at Downtown Brew fest LV 2013.

Not my favourite of Wasatch beers. Neither my favourite Doppelbock. Just malty, heavy on roasts and burnt caramels, with a fartsy whiff and a rather putrid nose. Almost cloying sweet, if not for the ashtray contents that seemed to have been poured on.

Pours a dark Amber. Nice sweet malty aromas. Raisin aromas too. Flavours are very sweet. Sweet fall fruits and some Booze flavour to round it out. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet malty nose, touch of booze. Flavors are generally carmel, malts, and hints of apple. Bit boozey on the finish. VERY drinkable for 8%!

Bottle (marked 11/02/12) that I picked up Superbowl 2013 weekend in Las Vegas (kept refrigerated since then). Large amount of yeast sediment noticed at the bottom of the bottle. Pours with a very mild haze over a deep bronze hued body with a thin head, poor retention and mild lace. Aromas are of melanoidins, grape nuts and an odd fruitiness that I cannot place. Cornbread and light leather. Flavors are of oxidation, cardboard, raisins, medium strong malt. Lasting leather. Low bitterness but some lasting in the duration. A bit husky, light alcohol. Suntan lotion. Some munich like toasted malt notes. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Sweet beer with a clean/crisp finish. I’ll assume that the date on the bottle is a best by and not a brewed on...

This is a very drinkable 8 percent. Sweet, but not overly so, and definitely not as syrupy as some doppelbocks.
