Better than I expected. with a smoky hazelnut nuance that dominates throhughout the malty caramel flavors, rich and creamy. The hops linger with a bit of an astringent note, and I wish the smoke stuck around for a bit longer.

From the flight I had, this was probably the low man on the totem pole. Good flavor, but it seems really flat and semi lifeless.

Deep caramel, vanilla, star anise aroma. Pours a burnt caramel with minimal to no head. Marzen characteristic with a richer flavor profile. Overall a pretty good offering.

12oz bottle from Mike S via a mix 6 for my 40th, thanks buddy. Poured a thinner density super super dark brown almost black with a foamy larger super off white head. Aroma of dusty chocolate, well done toast, coccoa powder, touch of oranges hint of nuts. Super thin watery body with light carbonation, this beer needs some body. Flavor is a touch weaker than the aroma, notes of toast and grains along with a hint of pudding skin, coccoa powder, milk and nut shell. Blah.

Bottle from Wegmans. Pours deep reddish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is fairly nutty, slightly sweet, maybe some oats present. The taste has a nice nuttines, almost a slight chocolate, a rich creamy quality. This may be the best iíve had from this brewery.

smooth with a nice swell of toasted caramel, very good for this time of year. fuller like body with pleasant malt and hop characteristics it is a nice departure from October fest beers which can get dull.
