BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle and served in a standard pint glass: Clean amber hue with a rocky frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy herbal aromatic hops along with the expected caramel and biscuity vapours, mineral water and light earthy esters. The taste starts with a very light ripened fruit and caramel tone supported by a slight bitterness with a husky vain running throughout. The finish displays what is basically allspice and gypsum. The flavor profile is a bit better that most with some bitterness detected, thank god! The mouth feel is lively enough for the style and dry and chalky about the finish. Is it time for the stouts and barleywines? At least the leaves are starting to change color...

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Rich orangy with a thin dense offwhite head. Sweet malt, relatively rich over a bit of floral peppery hops. A bit orangy. A bit toasty. Low carbonation, a bit creamy, low viscosity. A bit sweet. A bit rich in the malt. Relatively subdued malt though. Creamy, a bit toasty with a bit of floral to peppery orangy hops. A lingering bit of caramelly toast.

Draft. Clear dark golden color with small head. The taste was lighty malty with faint halloween spices. Really nothing special here.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Pours brilliant dark gold, with a small fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The nose is sweet and malty with toasty notes. Full and complex toasted malt flavor with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth. This was a tasty, easy drinking fest that I felt was fairly true to style. Not the best Octoberfest, but a pretty solid offering.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle, 2007 Fall. Pours clear orange, white head. Aroma is malt, skunk, nutmeg, coriander, vanilla. Flavor is malt, nutmeg, wheat, coriander, toffee. Not my style of beer.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 18, 2007
12oz bottle, Batch 8038. Clear dark orange with a one finger quickly fading fizzy off white head. Aroma has sweet caramel and grain up front, and a little bit of toast and nuts are behind that. The flavor is much the same, definitely leaning towards malty sweet. However, the finish managed to be semidry, most likely due to the very light spicy hops that I barely picked up on. Minimal bitterness. Light carbonation with a light to medium body. I would expect many a beer from anyone else, but considering this is Bells, I expected more. Inoffensive, but not good. But, after brewing 70+ beers, they can’t all be winners.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle - Amber color with a thin off white head. Bready and nutty aroma. Sweet malty flavor with a slight bittler finish.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Pours a golden amber in color. Ring of head around the perimeter of the glass. Malt’s in the nose as well as what smells like some sort of corn base. Taste is huge on the malts with just a hint of hops to balance it out. Some signs of toffee. Easy drinking and slightly unimpressive.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Light citrus aroma. Frothy head with strong orange color. Flavors of light roasted toffee like malt, nutty lager flavor, and a light bitter finish with a slight yeastiness. Not bad.
