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.

Beautiful red to dark amber color; thin head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Strong body, very strong caramel flavor, malty as well, with some sweetness; the caramel succeds in hiding the hopping, that seems to be quite good. Solid Doppelbock, good.
