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 (994) - 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.

mar (4971) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2011
brown with a cream short lived head. nose is sweet malts, roast, graham cracker, and dough. easy on the palate, heavy roast at first, followed by rich malts, dough, and caramel. roasty finish as well.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Suprisingly dark, ruby colors only showing through with moderate light. Clear with a decent light tan head that fades to a ring and leaves fair lacing behind. Aroma is rich and malty with a little background of earthy hops. Lighter side of medium bodied. Flavor is pretty malty and a bit too much of residual sugar. Decent earthy hop bitterness. Not bad.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Pours a nice deep dark amber color. Aromas of bread, caramel, and hops. Flavor has a nice big malty taste witha nice bitter hop finish.

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 (577) - 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.

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.

riversideAK (5695) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Kyzr. Poured dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is malty with notes of bread, some roast and maybe a little yeast. Flavor is mostly sweet and malty with a lightly crisp finish and light roast. Kind of thin, but it is flavorful.
