caramel and nutty aroma, dark brownish red, good body, malty and semisweet with a lingering hop finish

Sarlacc83 (808) - Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from New Seasons. A: Clouded brown, creme colored head which turns from foam to whisp. Some lacing. N: Cocoa, biscuit, peas, bread, hay, touch of toffee, a bit vegetal, walnuts, and a hint of smoke. T: A strange combination of sweet and bitter. It doesn’t seem like that’s the case, though. More of that almond profile. M: Chalky, medium bodied, dense carbonation. O: Not a great Oktoberfest. Perhaps it’s the yeast being used here, but it’s neither clean nor pleasingly bready.

vadie (746) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Couleur ambré avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt et cereals. Le goût est du malt, cereals et levure. C’est un très peu sucré.

cathcacr (636) - Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Hard to go wrong with this style, from the examples I’ve tried so far. Easy to get a bocky/bready aroma, somewhat harder to get a good head presentation.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Dark brown with a modest head and minor lacings. Taste is brown sugar, soy sauce, slight bitter hops, a slight amount of boiled ham, some leather. Not like any other beer that was labelled Octoberfest. Abv at 6% is much too high for a session beer. Sweet overall but not overwhelming.

mbgrayson (544) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Picked up a six pack of the 2008 batch in Missoula today. Like past batches, it is a good, all around bock/brown beer. Has some sweetness/maltiness. A very drinkable beer that I like a lot.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2010
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.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2008
12 oz. bottle purchased at Central Market in Mill Creek. Pours a dark cola color with an off-white tan head. Flavor: Molasses, coffee, and brown sugar.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2005
DARK. Very nice beer in this it’s 2005 incarnation, but closer to a bock in character than Octoberfest. Dark brown, smooth munich and vienna malt flavor, rich, yet adequately dry in the finish. Getting harder a nd harder to find a good fresh lager around Octoberfest time, this one will certainly do...

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - OCT 13, 2012
Not typical märzen, more brown, malty aroma and flavor, and the hops, alcohol level and sweetness were really balanced. Worth try.
