3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled August 14, 2014.
Glass: Forgotten Boardwalk tulip.
Appearance: Crystal clear copper body with a creamy light tan head. The head has good retention and leaves a light coating with a latte like ring.
Aroma: The aroma is malty with brown sugar and cherry with a very light floral presence. Sweet but not indicating cloying.
Taste: Big and malty, caramel and brown sugar noted with biscuit and some butter. Fruity fig and cherry undertones are plenty with a dash of perfume like hops on the finish. Finish has a mild medicinal presence and comes off mildly sweet.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a solid as heck beer, whatever they want to call this. It’s complex but straightforward at the same time. Big, malty and very drinkable.

"closer resembles a sweet dopplebock in the nose and flavor than a regular marzen/oktoberfest. i didn’t quite know what to expect here. it was pretty good, and somewhat unique, but overall was a little too sweet to be a highly drinkable brew. pours a good looking copper orange with a thin white head. smells and tastes of sweet malt. mouthfeel is a little thick, and the alcohol is apparent, but not overpowering. Finish is nice. Overall, glad i tried it, but probably won’t get another for the price for a long while. If you like sweet big beers this one’s for you."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper with a rich, large, tan head with an orangish hue. Marshmallow, a slight note of sour, and toasted malt on the nose. Full-bodied, a bit of a carbonation burn on the rear of the tongue, and some creaminess in the front of the palate. Marshmallow creamy flavor toasted malt, bit giving way to a pretty evident alcohol flavor.

Dark orange tan in color... Aroma of sweet toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla and spices... Flavor is fairly sweet, caramel and toffee notes, light spices, oak, cinnamon... Hint of booze on finish... Really enjoyable
