Wasatch Brewery Devastator

What the brewers say

“If you’re going to sin, sin big. With 8 percent ABV and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that—a cult following in Utah?!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet stewed plums, toasted bread crust, cola, coffee, green pepper, and alcohol. No discernable hops content.”

Flavor: “Moderately strong chocolate in the flavor. Sweet caramel, toffee, roast, slight smoke, dried fruits (raisin, prune). Sweet floral hops. Clean lager characteristics. Distinct alcoholic warmth that is not harsh or boozy but definitely noticeable. Well-balanced. Slightly sweet smooth finish that is on the drier side of sweet. Wonderful malt complexity!”

Overall: “A nice malty, complex, and warming beer that is super (almost dangerously) drinkable. Would make for an excellent lighter-drinking-but-just-as-warming alternative to a big stout on a cold day.”
