    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    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.

    Tried this one on tap at The Wursthaus in Lake Jackson today. Nicely surprised by it. The aromas and flavors featured a nice earthly, mushroom compost. Some toasted caramel hints were abound. Nice deep brown body with a decent cap that leaves some thick lace. Not overbearing, a bit light for an 8% but in a good way.

    First, thanks to my brother who brought this back for me on his trip out to the mid-West. Pretty tough to come by any beers made in Utah. This dopplebock pours out a beautfiul mahogany brown body with a smaller 1/2" off white head. Aroma is mostly light roasted malts and some alcohol...maybe a little sweetness. Flavor is the star of this show. Tobacco, light smoke, some roasted bitterness which off-sets the medium-high sweetness. Very earthy about mid-palate. Bitterness is very soft on the finish and the sweetness lingers a little bit. Not the greatest, but really nice.

    Pretty tame dopple out of UTAH. My buddy Brando really seems to like this one, and while it packed a nice buzz, im usually looking for that hotness and the ABV coming through intensely. Clear mahogany, darker though. Head is decent finger sized. Aroma is pleasent. Nutty, raisiny and full dark malt. Taste is really very pleasent and mild with cinnamon and prune notes.

    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.

    A rebel with a cause, probably the highest abv beer brewed in utah at a whooping 8 per cent. This is a monster, no wonder its called the devastator. My flavor buds are picking up dark malty blueberry roast. Quite bitter, im guessing roughly 60-80 units. Very carmely. I really like the label, I cracked up in the store when I saw it. This is a strong beer, drink with caution. My buddy said he honked off these before.

    Nice dark copper/amber pour, with good ¾" head. The aroma is malty, as is the flavor. Very smooth drink, with decent after bite. My sample needed to be just a bit colder, but the flavor was good enough that I will try this one again.

    A smooth, but quick pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a two-finger thick, tan colored head. The beer is a fairly clear, red tinged, full amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, copper tinged, light cranberry hue when held up to the light. The aroma is certainly malt focused, but also has an off-putting cabbage note to it. Lightly concentrated malt aromatics (light for a Doppelbock), toasty malt aromas, sweet caramelized malt sugars and even a touch of raisin character is noticeable. Somehow the aroma just seems a bit jarring; that sort of cabbage note really gets in the way of things for me.

    Sweet tasting and not overly rich, the sweetness is actually fairly clean compared to the richness of most Doppelbocks and it seems to accentuate atypical, fruity notes of raisins and berries. A touch of lightly astringent, darker malt notes add some sharpness towards the finish and there is touch of cabbage character that lingers on in the finish. This is pretty well carbonated as it can taste fizzy at times, though I think the lighter body contributes to this as well. This seems to lack the deep richness that I like to find in the best examples of this style. I would never have guessed this was 8%abv, it seems a bit lighter than this.

    This is not a bad beer, it just doesn't quite have enough richness and malt complexity for me. Because of this it is a bit disappointing, though the slight off-notes don't help things either.
