2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Rhino. Hazy dark brown with the colors of autumn leaves at the edges. Awwww. Big dense creamy gray head that goes away. Cabbagey nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, old leaves, and cabbage on the mid-palate. Mild vegetal finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a thin tan head, little lacework. Aroma is chocolate malts, nuts, and brown sugar. The flavor is dark roasted malts, more caramel than chocolate malt, brown sugar, mild bitterness which is very refreshing, I actually like it, I really like it. Ok I don’t really like it, I was just imitating that Mikey cereal commercial from when I was a kid, but it’s not bad. Carbonation is low, body is thin, finish is bitter and sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First tried at the brewery/pub in Missoula, MT during the first Oktoberfest in 1988. Pours darker than most would consider for an Oktoberfest/Marzen, but that is the more traditional style from many, many years ago. Thick rich and malty, but not sweet like contemporary watery versions of the style. Not too strong at 6% ABV, so you can enjoy a few at a fest session. Quite good.

This beer didn’t taste much of anything Oktoberfesty, it tastes much closer to barley wine, it even smells like it too. Hopefully I’m reviewing the correct beer and if so I hadn’t found anything worth complimenting. Do not expect much from this beer.

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Nice dark pour, but no head to speak of. Smells a bit like a petroleum based product. Taste is a bit more mellow, but much like it smells with an added hint of cedar with a bit of sweetness. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle served in a dimpled mug. 2010 edition. Pours murky dark brown with orange hues. Minimal head and lacing. Shame about that. Maybe pour this one closer to room temp. Aromatic nose of fruitcake, Frankfurt bread pudding, sweaty sock funk, and soft molasses sweetness. Mildly sweet flavor. Light-medium body, average carbonation. Malty finish for a malt focused brew. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich and clean malt aroma with a hint of caramel. Deep amber orange color with great clarity and a decent off white head. Medium malt sweetness with a light hop bitterness to balance. Medium body with a creamy texture, medium carbonation and a medium length finish that leans toward the malts. Smooth and rich.
