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.

22 oz bomber for 7 bucks. Pours clear dark brownish red with an off-white head. Strong aroma of caramel with fruits underneath. Taste is a lot of caramel and quite sweet. The alcohol is masked pretty well. I really can’t taste any. Body is medium, average carbonation. I expected a bit thicker beer though. All in all it’s pretty good. Not very complex but decent and strong.

Smells good, but sickingly sweet.. perhaps with a hint of funk. Taste is banana, funk, malt, candy sweetness... but with a hint of nutty bitter. Not a huge fan of this one.

On draft at Fools Gold, Soho, NYC. Smooth as silk beer that is sweet, has bite and is complex. Not familiar with the brand, but it is a winner.

I had this wonderful beer at a holiday party with friends. It’s smooth, fruity, nutty and has a great finish. I love local New Hampshire beers and this is one of the best. Get some if you can find it.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 A great beer from the area that I'd never before seen in a 12 oz, only in a bomber before. A sweet, but not too sweet beer that really keeps the maltiness on the front of you mind as you drink it. It's smooth and silky too, which makes it deceptive. Now I need to find out where I can find some.

Picked a 12 oz in a make your own 6 pack. Wish I bought a 6 pick of this. Enjoy local beers and New Hampshire beers in particular, and this one is fantastic. Pour dark brown, with a great caramel and coffee aroma. Tasted sweet, but not too sweet with a great nutmeg aftertaste. Will have to get a few more of this soon.

12 oz bottle from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA The Doppelbock poured a cloudy amber color with a small off white head that quickly dissipated. No detectable lacing. The aroma of sweet caramel malt and ripened fruit greets you. The beer has a light body with soft carbonation. Noticeable elevated ABV. Clean finish with malt sweetness on the tip of your tongue.

12 ounce bottle. Copper red pour topped by a small creamy tan head. Mild caramel malt nose. Hints of baked bread and spice. Rich, toffeeish malty flavor. Silky mouthfeel. Notes of vanilla, Demerara sugar and herbal hops. Wonderful balance and complexity. Very faithful to the Bavarian Doppelbock style. Outstanding!

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Perhaps the most drinkable doppelbock around, S'Muttonator truly is a wonderful interpretation on the classic Bavarian style. A very smooth, malty mouthfeel, with a hint of sweetness and a plum finish that strikes precisely the right balance. As well-balanced a beer as one is likely to find anywhere.

65cl Bottle @ Cervezalandia, Vall d’Uixo, Spain Amberish brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malt, bread, sweet, nuts, chocolate, fruits. Taste is malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, chocolate. Medium to full body, average carbonation.
