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.

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.

wxman (1398) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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.

Nice dark amber color. Cream colored head. Sweet and malty. A very drinkable brew.

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.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, nuts, earth and a good dose of light yeastie and bready notes. Medium-bodied; Assertive earthy and nutty flavours with a good balance of light hops and a lot of sugars. Aftertaste shows some earthy malts, a bit of peat and caramel with some toffee and a hint of yeast. Overall, a good marzen with more of a kick from yeast and sugars than anything else. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Zupan’s in Portland, Oregon (Belmont Location) a few hours ago on 07-December-2013 for US$1.99 sampled in my hotel room a few hours later on 07-December-2013 here in Portland.

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...

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2010
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.

cmonster (966) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
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.
