COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Märzenbier (Oktoberfest-style) brewed with dulce de leche and flavors inspired by hoja santa. Dulce de leche is a type of milk caramel widely used throughout Latin America. Hoja santa is a large leaf commonly used in Oaxacan cuisine due to the richness in its flavor and aroma. A new seasonal that celebrates the traditional Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

No arguments other than not as advertised. Very smooth, easy to drink.. not bitter at all. Oktoberfest?

Pint on tap at Bad Apple in Chicago. Pleasant cayenne pepper spice and grain in the aroma. Dark copper orange with lots of bubbles and an off white head. Taste is very smooth and hotter, spicier than most marzens. The malted sweetness and the pepper spice pair nicely, like a Central American candy. Palate is medium bodied, easy drinking. Overall, one of the more interesting and satisfying variations of an Oktoberfest I've had in some time.

Decent beer but not even close to a maerzen. Caramel and spices dominate all the way.

On tap @ Jake Melnick’s, Chicago. Tawny orange amber, clear, with a generous lasting white head. Very spicy aroma of nutmeg, ginger, with underlying sweet caramel. Cakey spicy flavour profile, clean finish. Yum!

On tap at Fatpour Chicago. Sweet slightly boozy aroma. Flavor is sweet and caramelly with some rich spice notes. Tastes like a darker Tripel as it doesn’t have the hop bite of a typical Oktoberfest and is much sweeter. I really liked it but I understand why some would say it’s a little flat.

Poured from a bottle. Brownish. Lots of sticky head. Not much aroma. Fruity backbone on a malty earthy beer. Pretty tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed on tap at Reggie’s in Chicago, IL prior to seeing the band Tragedy. I didn’t take tasting notes for this one but I remember it being pretty good. Appearance a murky dark brown with not much head at all. Aroma was sweet, definite caramel presence. Taste was pretty good, definitely a good mixture of Belgian candi, sweetness, clove, and cinnamon. Moderate body and carbonation. Of the 5 Rabbit stuff I’ve tried so far this was hands down the best of their brews.

On tap @ Fountainhead. Finally tried this one, gotta support the locals. Pours a deep amber with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Good lacing. Caramel and a bit of spice notes such as nutmeg, brown sugar and piloncillo on the nose. Very good going down - well balanced and finishes just right. Tasted some notes of Dulce de leche at the finish. Smooth and easy drinking. Glad I tried it.

tmoreau (2425) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2012
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., and dispensed to a pint glass with a bright and clear, deep copper color, a modest amount of off white head foam that diminished rather quickly to a ring & film, and left some dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was sweetness, caramel, vanilla, a hint of banana, and pie spice less clove. The flavor started with a low but mildly lingering hop bitterness that was peppery & earthy, and then continued the aroma notes. The body was medium+, there was a light silkiness to the mouthfeel, and the texture was a little sticky. Flavorful, nice complexity, but considering the style line, a little sweet for me.
