3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2005 Bottle. Copper color with rust discoloration. Aroma of toasted malts doused in honey. A condensed version of a regular marzen,thick and ultra sweet, with touches of nutmeg and assorted spices. A lingering film of sugar in the finish. Impressively large for the style, but way more than you would ever need or want in an Oktoberfest.

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.

Caramel and toffee nose with a mystery fruit lingering in the back. I love the intrigue of the flavor! Raisin, floral, resin, with lots of malt finish. This is a great fall beer. I plan to age one for this fall and one for next. Compare the changes in flavor

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.
