3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: October 21, ’13.
A: Big and malty, of course. Bready notes, caramel notes, booze and a general fruitiness. A very faint hint of hops also.
A: Deep orange bordering light brown. Soapy white head providing some lace.
T: Very much like the nose, with a rich and malty sweetness kept in balance by the bitter and spice notes of the hops. Alcohol burn is present also.
P: Thick, creamy, smooth, lightly carbonated.
O: Very easy drinking; I thought this would be more like a bock than a strong Oktoberfest, but this did a great job of just being a stronger Oktoberfest while maintaining those characteristic Oktoberfest notes.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a brilliant copper from a bottle, minimal lacing. Aroma is of a sweet tobacco, not processed but dried tobacco leaves, with some boozy esters. Flavor is reminiscent but not exactly creme brulee, with its bitter burnt sugar, and sweet cream/custard. A very pleasant heat in the throat. Great beer.
