COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktober23 is een stormachtig herfstbier met een romige smaak. Zijn diepe herfstbruinekleur dankt hij aan de donkergebrande mout. Vanillie en cognac tonen geven dit bier een warme sfeer. Geselecteerde hopsoorten en granen maken dit bier een lekker volmoutigbier. Te degusteren bij een haardvuur.

Maakun (553) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Sold as barrel aged but I don’t see any markings on the label... Deep brown with small off-white head. Brown sugar, bread, dried plums, vanilla, some porto maybe. Taste is mainly sweet with light bitter finish. Medium bodied with full carbonation. Not bad, but the aroma is a bit light.
