2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle poured a clear reddish-brown hue w/ medium white head fully diminishing and nice lacing. Moderate sweet malty aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet and a light bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, toasted malt, and toast. Medium bodied, avg carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel, and sweet w/ some warmth in the finish but not enough to cut thru the sweetness. It is a beer soda pop.

Tried this in the Salt Lake City Airport. Roasted caramel in the aroma, sweet in the taste with some grains and caramel, some fruit too. Smooth and just as good as the Sam Adams variety of this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a glass of flat cola. Pours a dark, tea-color, with little to no head. Aroma dominated by malts. Flavor a combination of some fruity notes (raisin), with perhaps some chocolate and some coffee. Rather sweet underneath. A bit on the light side in mouthfeel. Again, kind of a disappointment (my 2nd beer from Wasatch).

This is a really good, smooth malty example of a double bock. There is not a lot of complexity but it gets right to the point and is easy to drink but that does not mean it finishes watery. There is a subtle roasted flavor throughout. BD- 9.05 JD- 9

Appearance was clear amber caramel with creamy 2finger of white diminishing head, no lacing. Aromas sweet malt of honey caramel, pale, figs and spices. Taste was sweet malty goodness with spice and deep friuts. Palate was creamy carbonation with medium smooth malty finish. Doppelbock goodness...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle.
Clear mohagany, with a thin tan head and patchy lace.
Roasty, nutty, sweet aroma, a little burnt sugar and hints of caramel.
Flavor is slightly sweet, touch of roasted malt and carmelized sugar.
Finish has a slight burnt sugar quality, but not enough to detract

Clear deep amber, thin off-white head, some lacing. Malt aroma with a hint of pine lurking in the background. Balanced taste with a nod toward the sweet side. A bit thin on the palate.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!
