COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest Lager: Robust, roasted, chocolate malt flavor, followed with a clean and crisp finish. Chocolate Brown. 15°

Beer Stories
History states that the first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 for the commemoration of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Keeping up with Erie Brewing Company’s German brewing influence, our brewer created Fallenbock. This brew is a classic Oktoberfest Lager which creates a harmonious marriage of classic malts and hops;resulting in a wonderful clean crisp flavor. Happy Autumn!

12 oz bottle pours dark brown with a hint of red. Toffee notes after the beer has a chance to open up. Not exceptional but would drink again.

Luscious-looking dark ruby-red/amber, with a thin white head, no lacing, poor retention. Nutty scents with some dark fruits, caramel, pineapple make up the aromas of this brew. Very pleasant nose here, makes one curious and eager to taste. Excellent smooth and chewy mouth of dark caramel malts, creamy vanillaness, some dark tango fruits and faint hops. Good solid medium, drinkable body, with big carbonation. An overall decent brew, good doppelbock but not even a great example, would have again, worth having once, maybe twice.

Since the slippers that were given to me for Christmas did not fit but fit my Father, he graciously bought me a mixed six pack at Wegman’s yesterday. I chose this amongst the sixer. Nose of burnt toast and sugar. Pours a darker brown. toffee tones undulate. Some real nice light smokiness gets absolutely overshadowed by the toffee. Hops are missing. Droopy, spotty thin lacing that is unimpressive. Some central doughiness gives it a bit to chew upon but overall it is a muddled disaster of a brew.

A very roasty malt that is much like burnt toast. Slight nuttiness and caramel, but with a charred finish.

Bottle. Pours brown, thin tan head. Mild aroma, chocolate, basement aromas. Mild roasty flavor, primarily sweet and malty. Thin body for a doppelbock, quick finish. Not bad overall.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Cola brown with red edges. Cover is beige foam. Aroma is woody, caramels, light cocoa. Quite thin. Taste is semi offensive sweetness, there is a thinness about it, but caramels and cocoa dominate.

bleeng (1522) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Cask at J Clyde Birmingham 3/2/11. Dark brown and filtered. Nose is a bit malty but very light aroma. Taste is a bit soapy to start, a little sweet with some maltiness. Alcohol is evident. Smooth and light bodied. Not offensive but just OK as nothing really stands out here.

Pours a deep coca cola brown, with red highlights. No head whatsoever. Lots of chocolate fudge in the nose with some alcohol warmth. The flavor also leans toward chocolate malts, pretty straight forward taste, not much complexity. Lots of carbonation, maybe too much, because the flavor seems to get a bit lost. The body is medium-light offering a short clean aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden and some hoppiness pokes in at the end giving mild bitterness. Possibly a reach, but sensing some dried fruit, plum or raisin, as the beer warms. Overall, it’s enjoyable, but mediocre at best.
