Brewed with generous amounts of Vienna and Munich malts for a rich full-bodied malty flavor, Dragonhösen begins as a traditional Oktoberfest lager then stealthily breathes fire with 9% alcohol by volume. Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops add balance with a mild earthy aroma and flavor with moderate bitterness.

Big and bready marzen style. Big sweetness and booze heat. Definitely in your face. Great name.

Dogbrick (11609) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Sample at Daily Growler UA. Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

A tasty marzen. Pours a hazy iced tea colour. Aromas are grains and a bit of tea and herbs. Similar flavours. Tasty and easy to drink considering the high abv

Rated on 9-02-2016 at Black Dog Pub, Fort Wayne, IN. When served, the appearance of this draft beer is a very small beige head that is fully lasting, transparent amber body, no visible carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is herbal, alcohol and caramel malt. The flavor is earthy, alcohol, lightly bitter, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is light-medium carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A quaffable beer that is easy drinking as there is not a lot going on with the taste of it. It is a rather basic tasting beer for the style.

This draft brew from a beer bar poured a very small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt sweet mild hop and burnt malt. The clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild lager mild dough mildly vinous sweet brown malt and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Unusual flavor for a traditional October fest. Has a little bite can be noticed but not unpleasant. This one should probably age a year ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

they did a better than expected job of sticking to the style even though this is a 9% beer. Less subtle, but still bready, nutty and malt forward. The body is too much for the style. Overall it’s ok, but definitely a one timer.

Barreras (1571) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Pours an amber color with a malt aroma. Taste is bready with a good malt backbone. Minor spice with a clean aftertaste. The alcohol content is hidden well, with little complexity.

Copper with a tall head. Bready, booze, sweet malt, a bit earthy aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is like grains straight from the mash. It has some booze in the finish and very sweet overall. This is mostly a malt bomb with little complexity or interest. Not everything needs to be imperialized.
