A pre-winter winner.

On draft. Aroma of roasted almonds. Tastes a smidge watery, but flavors of mild hops and almonds are clean, dry. Pleasant, but not a standout.

A great autumn brew with nice robust flavor and the clean octoberfestbier taste. Impressive palate and finish, despite the cold I'm rocking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (815) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is caramel malt, fruit, grain, and nuts. Pleasant enough.

Rich dark chocolate colour, mild aroma of malt. Smooth but complex taste, slightly nutty, sweet, and smooth. Mild palate, slight malt finish.
