SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours brown with red hues and tan head. Aroma has a nice dark roasted maltiness with notes of nut and very doughy/bready. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweet and subtle spicy profile With a touch of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not the usual Marzen but I enjoyed.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Pours dark red/copper with a thin beige head. Malty caramel flavor, with a cherry and sweet bread finish. Light on the hops, just enough to keep it from being cloying. Long roasty caramel finish. Very rich oktoberfest beer, while not one you could probably drink a few steins of without feeling totally full, still a nice beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
I think the commercial deScription about says it all. Very short and sweet this one was. Very malty and nutty just like I expected it to be, no hops detectable at all, maybe as an afterthought. Medium - bodied, with a nice chewy sweetness at the end. The best of the Bayern beers that I have had.

willblake (2654) - 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.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2010

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 (2291) - 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.

OldMrCrow (2197) - 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.

bitbucket (2160) - 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!
