Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a fairly decent caramel malt and spicy hop combo. Flavor is not as good with lots of sweet malt but finishes with a horrible plastic aftertaste. What the hell is that? Its stil there way after the first swallow. This is total crap and it promised so much at the begining.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Inn in North Huntingdon PA this beer poured a dark caramel amber color with a small creamy khaki head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, nutty and malty. The flavor was bitter, sour nut and toffee with a light fruity hop presence. OK.

From Bottle. Poured Amber. Big foamy, cloud like caramel color head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, and grains. Flavor malts, caramels, toffee and a slight hop tang with sweetness all through. A little thin. Lingering bark flavor in the aftertaste.

Beerman6686 (5831) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Poured an amber orange color with an off white head. Aroma was very sweet malts and thats about it. Flavor was overbearingly sweet, not hint of hops at all. I had trouble finishing this.

Bottle. Pours amber with a beige head. The aroma is sweet with caramel and honey. The flavor is toasted malt and burnt popcorn. Decent.

Strykzone (6048) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Dark copper color with a light orange head that offers very large bubbles. Decent retention. Aroma is faint but offers some toffee with some floral hop. Taste is surprisingly harsh with unmalted barley leading. That soon fades and floral hops move to the front along with some caramel malt and molasses. A dry bitter aftertaste.

Deep amber color, minimal head. Smells and tastes of burnt paper, smokey, caramel, toffee, with more than a little bitterness.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2008
dark brown, darker than most oktoberfests, with minimal head. flavor has an initial dark crystal flavor, but then drops off suddenly without much more malt coming through or hops components. not a top flight oktoberfest

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2008
From the bottle this poured a deep amber body, tinited with brown, and capped by a short-lived eggshell head. The aroma was sweet and malty with touches of caramel and molasses. Some burnt toast bitterness was added to the flavor and help to temper the sweetness. Okay, but there’s lots of other Oktoberfests out there to choose from.

Ottscay (7) - Mason, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2008 does not count
Bottle. Poured a dark amber color with a fairly substantial head which remained for several minutes. Pleasant taste for a marzen, not great and not bad. Not as smooth/creamy as other Oktoberfest beers (i.e. Sam Adams Oktoberfest). Has a more hoppy finish.
