3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2005 bottle. The day after Thanksgiving, what better beer to share amongst ourselves. Pours a nice clear orangish brown with a fluffy head. Aroma smells of toasted malts, sweet caramel apples, a bit of citrus, hints of floral hops. I left it outside overnight so the first sip was ice cold. Nice sweetness likend to brown sugar and full mouth feel. As I kept drinking and it warmed up, the malts and earthy spices really came through. It was nice and strong with a nice dry hoppy back of the mouth taste.

Nice. Bottle from Connecticut wines. Pours light brown with some minimal head and lots of lacing. Nose is plums. Flavours of plum, caramel, cheerios, some floral, some spice. Taste med/light sweet, med/light bitter. Medium body, lively carbonation with a spicyness to the finish. Nice beer!! Alcohol very well hidden.

Nice smooth and balanced Oktoberfest. Has that perfect blend of malt, caramel, slightly sweet flavor you would expect. Deep auburn color with the sweet malty aroma. There is a reason why this is one of the highest rated Oktoberfest.

Batch #12, August 2015. 9.3% ABV. Pours a crystal clear amber color, with a tan head. Aroma of malts and sugar. Taste is smooth, sweet, malty, and very drinkable. A nice Marzen, with a bit of a kick...Thumbs up on this one.

Drinking 2013. This hits you with the alcohol up front. It has a bit of a smoother finish than other octoberfests.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated based on notes taken Sep 2012 -- I’m assuming this is the 2011 version since a 2012 isn’t listed. This beer fucking rocks. An imperial Oktoberfest super malty, hint of booze; what else do you honestly need? Like German style beers? Drink this one.
