I like Big Butts and I can not lie, no other brothers can deny, pour it in a glass, go sit on your ass and bring one to your lips. OK, rapping? Bad. This beer? Good. I should warn you, don't expect this to taste like one of the classic doppelbocks that come out of Bavaria, but going by the American style it's definitely at the top. I'd definitely like for this to be maltier and a lot stronger, but this is something I could drink every day. Oh, and to the light beer drinkers who constantly rag about how dark beers like this are like motor oil, Krystal, my future sister-in-law, drinks this regularly, so if she can handle those dark beers and you can't, you're a wanker.

I'd been looking forward to this beer for a week, so yesterday, when my wife said we were having sammiches for lunch, and that she'd picked up some local specialty rye bread, I sprinted upstairs and put a couple bottles of Big Butt in the beer fridge. By lunchtime they were properly chilled. Out came the sammiches, and out came the Big Butt. Deep dark, walnut brown, malty nose and chocalatey malty goodness. A perfect accompaniment to my sammich. Oh, yeah. Good stuff.
