Draft. Dark brown and clear. No head. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is the same with a ton of sticky sweetness. Glad I got a sampler. DarkStar87 (4) - , Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2015 does not count
Poured from bottle to Pilsner glass:
Starts off with a thick, foamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly; starts out dark brown and lightens to a golden color as you hit bottom. Clear all the way through.
The nose is pretty basic, with a malty, musty smell. It's reasonably thick and has a simple, strong flavor. Primarily coffee laced with some chocolate and nutty notes in the background. The ABV is relatively well disguised, and the finish is the same coffee and malt you started with, but smoothed out and a bit lighter on the palate. Solid, heavy, and strong if that's what you're looking for. RickReallyBrew (105) - Franktown, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Very nice American effort at a Doppelbock. Not quite as malty as an EKU or Celebrator Doppelbock, but very respectable. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Tawny colored pour. Small off white head. Tons of lacing. Big caramel aroma with some malt tones. Taste is malty and biscuity. Sweet and dry finish. ajnepple (6853) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2014
12 oz single bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Brown appearance with a lacy white head. Mild aroma and somewhat mild flavor of dark malts, chocolate and a mild earthy bitterness. Medium to full body with a rich finish. Decent doppelbock.

Caramel and dark, dried fruits with an elevated ABV. Smooth and the sweetness invites the next mouthful. Very malty and not a significant level of hop presence here. This is a good entry level doppelbock and is good to serve company since it isn’t too expensive and is readily available. lightbias (453) - USA - NOV 22, 2014
When in Utah, buy Wasatch. Amber pour, with a nice, fat, white head. A surprising aroma is filtering up through the foam and I’m looking forward to a first taste. None of the other brews from this brand have been as aromatic. First sip brings a caramel-infused, fruity dough flavor, and a sweet’n’sour on my tongue. The body is thin, but not watery, and the carbonation good for a short while. Drink it quick, unless you like it flat, and keep it cold! This is a decent brew if you treat it right, and I am happy to say that although it’s not my favorite in this style, its definitely my favorite Wasatch! anders37 (26857) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Sweetish malty caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel and dark fruit finish. slowrunner77 (12471) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"pretty roasty in the aroma and flavor, and a touch thin for the style and an 8% brew. reminds me of mammoth double brown ale...like a bastard brown/dopplebock, which isn’t bad, but left me wanting a little more. fairly sweet lingering finish."

Pours a deep auburn red with a foamy head. Aromas caramel, slight toffee, slight smoked caramel and grain. Flavors medium caramel, slight toffee, hay and mild grain. Medium sweet. Decent but forgetable.
