willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2004
10.09.04 12oz bottle thanks to wulfhere. Very dark (for a marzen), ruby brown with ample head. Sweet, caramel aromas with some cardboard, toffee, brown bread. Flavors are also quite sweetly malty; not much, if any hops. A nice fall session beer, but better to look at than to ponder. Watery. I so want to love this brewery’s beers, but each one just comes up a bit short.

jake65 (2616) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle: Amber pour with a thin beige head. Not much to the aroma; a little sweet and malty. Florals show up a little bit in the taste, but caramel malt and an herbal note are the forefront. A little bready too. Overall refreshing and paried well with the general’s chicken.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours clear dark amber brown with a frothy beige head with decent retention. Aroma of sweet caramel and nut, along with some darker fruit. Taste has some burnt bitterness and sweet caramel and fruit sweetness. Medium long bitter finish. Medium body.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle thanks to swalden28. Poured deep amber/brown with an off white head. Aroma was raisin, brown sugar, caramel, and earthy notes. Flavor was pretty much the same with a medium body and low carbonation. Odd o fest.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Draught. Dark caramel, toffee colour. Shin fast dissipatiing white head. Sweetish malty aroma and not much of that. Malty flavour with not much hoppiness. Very sweet. Not super strong but much taste of alcohol. Thin but interesting and satisfying finish.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany brown with a fading and slightly lacy tan head.Darktoberfest? Aroma of molasses, nuts. Medium body and light carbonation. Taste of molasses, and a dash of butter. Sadly, it’s not quite thick enough to pour on pancakes. Sweet molasses, spice and earth finish. Kinda sorta one-dimensional.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle from Belmont Station--Poured a brown-chestnut body with a thin white head. Nose of bread and crispy grains. Resided on the malty sweet side. Mildly creamy with a touch of floral hops. Thin dull finish that needed more complexities for sure!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Very dark pour with little head. Nose of nutty caramel. Nut flavors with malt. A very weak finish. Starts out as strong in the flavor, but leaves you wanting more in the finish.

OldMrCrow (1829) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from bottleworks and sampled same-day.

Relatively dark pour, slightly skunky aroma, Flavor a bit on the sweet side, some molassas, dirt, slightly sour and vegetal. This one seems like a mess to me. Disappointing.
