4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose is some munich malt which has some layers of spicyness, faint off notes of dumpster. Overall not very aromatic. No essence of hops. Boozy. Nice carbonation, creamy head with the small bubbles. Color is beautiful copper color. Taste is a nice octoberfest dominated by hot alcohol. Oh so boozy. boozy booz. Dominates the palate. Finishes spicy, slighly dry. Medium aftertaste. Enjoyability 3.5/5.

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.
