COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ‘-ator’ suffix that’s found on the names of double bock beers around the world is one of the most respected traditions in a beer world that seems to be focused on ignoring standards and customs. Smuttynose is proud to adhere to that tradition in the naming, brewing methods and taste of S’muttonator Double Bock.
S’muttonator Double Bock displays the characteristically full malt flavor that can only come from using the best German specialty malts and a traditional decoction mashing technique. The extra effort also adds a lot of extra time to each batch, but that’s the only way to get the nuttiness, toffee notes and a characteristically smooth melanoidin character beer drinkers expect from a double bock. When you drink your S’muttonator, you’ll see that it’s time well spent.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark amber with a medium head. Sweet with malt, caramel, syryp and some light notes of dried fruit. Warming alcohol in the finish. Not bad but I prefer a Doppelbock with more malt.

TheHopster (1077) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2015

jookos (5886) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark amber, reddish, clear. Malty, sweet malty, light syrupy nose with nice neutral subtle, light citrussy, green hops. Full bodied, soft smooth, light oily, mouth filling texture. Malty sweets, super clean, easy. Just on the brink of being cloying, hides the abv quite well. Feels like malt candy. Just sweet enough, but with a really clean malt flavour.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2015
Tempting smell. Average head. Fruity sweetness, but less sugar than most doppelbocks. Sturdy hoppiness without exaggeration. Some dark chocolate and lots of malt and bready tones. Complex. Again.

AndyW68 (1497) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Really liked this. Brown pour with red tint and minimal off white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, nutty and you get a nice warm alcohol feel.

Linnet (1753) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Jam, marmalade, earthy hops, warming and very malty. Copper colour, medium beige head, lacing. Big cloying sweetness, medium bite too sweet for my liking. Fullbodied, average carbonation, warming finish. Good example of one of my least favourite styles.
