Wasatch The Devastator Double Bock has a very thin, almost nonexistent, off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, honey color. There is a little lacing left behind. The aroma is subtle, but one can detect sweet, rich malt and candy or fruit. The flavor is of over-ripe fruit, pecan shells, rich barley malt, some chocolate, and syrupy sugar. It’s a little bitter, but not particularly so. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, and The Devastator finishes smooth, sweet, and mellow. A little bit of the alcohol burn shows up on the back half. Overall, this is an excellent beer. RJT

From Jan 2008 I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John! This pours from the 12oz bottle a clear amber with about a 1" head of foam that recedes quickly but it has some good lacing after the pour. The smell has notes of roasted malt, caramel malt, grain, and a touch of chocolate. It also has an "earthy" nose to it. The taste is of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt(it's light), caramel malt, and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel is pretty light and it finishes slightly sweet, watery, and again, some alcohol. I think the alcohol is just too invasive in this brew and prevents me from appreciating the actual flavours which come across as too light. I *do* think that they have a base here that can be worked on/tweaked and it *could* be a nice sipping brew but, imho, they aren't there yet. Thanks again John for giving me a chance to taste this one.

12 oz bottle from blindeyedbetty, my brew babe extraordinaire. Clear coppery amber with a light tan head. Nose is sweet nuts and earth, something smoky and a dash of toffee. Very deep nutty flavors, caramel and a mild hint of chocolate. Wisps of smoke. Somewhere in there , something is off, but I can’t put a finger on it. Really shows in the finish, like a spoiled chestnut. Really nice beige lace. I can’t decide to like or hate this puppy.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Sweet malty nose, touch of booze. Flavors are generally carmel, malts, and hints of apple. Bit boozey on the finish. VERY drinkable for 8%!

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Aroma is malty and sweet with some hints of earth, grass or dirt. Taste is a bit strange with lingering bitterness. No balanced flavor or flavor at all for a DB. Not too good. Another possible re-rate.

Beaver (1867) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Clear deep amber color. Just over a finger of beige frothy head. Retention is poor and only a few whisps of lacing are left. 3.5 S: Big toastiness. Moderate amounts of caramel, raisin, and plum. Brown sugar and nuttiness underneath. 3.5 T: Again lots of toastiness. Caramel, raisin, and nuttiness next. Plum and brown sugar to round thing off. Lightly boozy. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasant creaminess. 3.5 D: Tasty beer, but pretty standard doppelbock. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-04-2012 19:59:16

A cold temp pour produces a caramel amber color with very little head and lace. Strong malty sweet aromas of carameled busicuits. Full nectar with ample soft residual effer. A big malty sweet nectar devoures my taste buds with it’s palate driven intensity. Cherry, peachy stone fruit, molasses, mildly stewed nut shells, and French toast. The finish is bittered with a bit of acidity with a lingering sweetness yet not cloying.

LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a modest, off-white head. Aroma: Bready malt, dry dead leaves. Taste: Bready and caramel malts, fruitiness. Ends with typical bitterness from the style. Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost thick. Overall: Not a bad "double bock." I like it a little more complex than this, but definitely drinkable.

2.9
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: mahogany with ruby and browns bordered by a bubbly collar. Swirls with khaki head, tannish, and lace.
Nose: woody, dry, dead leaves. Old leather and a touch stale. Musty. Mild overall but the pervasive stale old mustiness is an attribute, not a detriment.
Palate: thin with brown sugared dates and a distracting overwhelming saccharine sweetness which wasn’t apparent anywhere in the nose. Candied sugars than candied fruitcake. Thin and weak.
Final Thoughts: while the nose was different, twas intriguingly so. Too bad the palate was nowhere intriguing or appetizing. Meh.
