126. Smuttynose S’muttonator
I may have mentioned before how much I enjoy Smuttynose beer and this is no exception. I have one more Smuttynose Big Beer series in the fridge and after this one I am very much looking forward to it. Whatever you think a “Big Beer” should be this is probably it; high alcohol content, complex flavor, great color, thick head with great retention – this beer has it all. There are a few Smuttynose brews that I have not tried yet and I will be on the look out for them as they truly do brew great beer. If you are at a store that sells Smuttynose trying to decide what to buy, grab a Smuttynose you will not be disappointed.

Brewers Description: As the name implies, a doppelbock (double bock) is a very malty German lager beer. Typically quite sweet with some roasted malt undertones, doppelbocks range in color from deep amber to nearly black and are normally associated with the winter season. Traditionally, German brewers have used the suffix “-ator” in naming their doppelbock beers; we have, too. S’muttonator is a tasty mixture of German ingredients & good ol’ fashioned New England tenaciousness. Our brewers take 30 hours to brew a single batch of this traditional Double Bock. Take your time & enjoy its rich, malty & deceptively smooth flavor.
