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!

Bottle… Pours clear and very dark. When held up to bright light, I see ruby. Small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is a swirl of NYC street-vendor candied cashews, vanilla, chocolate, espresso and mild campfire smoke. Medium to full-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The sweet, malty flavor runs parallel to the aroma – toasted nuttiness alongside mocha and a splash of vintage port that lingers well into the finish. A careful, conservative hop schedule and black malt bitterness prevent the sweetness from running absolutely rampant. Underrated.

Pours a deep amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and brown sugar. Flavor is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and a sugary finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle, pours a dark brune body with a tan head. Malty nutty tones, some light caramel and toffee notes, a fully body with a decent etoh warming and some lighter fruit esters. Hint of smoke malt and an earth y toned finish. Decent.

Bottle pours clear garnet with tan head. The aroma is musty malts shuffling over to some malt roastiness with thin layers of dark fruitiness and a sense of caramel back off in the background. It has a light aroma but it seems pretty darn nice. The taste begins with malts both sweet and roasty that create a pleasing mix. Soon after modest notes of figs and dates and caramel pick up and join in to midway. Into the finish malt roastiness, a touch of caramel and some cherry hard candy take this to closure. Nice. The moderate level of malt roastiness keep this from being overly sweet.

dmac (4007) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2009
12 oz bottle of disappointment. Poured a good looking deep ruby red with a smaller bubbly beige head. Aroma was very subtle chocolate, nutts, and caramel. The body was thin and fizzy with lots of foamy carbonation once it passes your lips. Flavor was seltzer water combined with a decent doppel, some chocolate and fizz, very slight dark fruits and fizz and some crusty brown nutty bread and fizz. This one was quite a let down.

Nejhleader (1239) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2009
body was thin, not much taste, had an aftertaste of caramel malts. Not a good example of a doppelbock in my mind.

(bottle - 12 oz) Ruby red pour with a creamy off-white head. Lots of sweet and earthy notes dominate the aroma and mix with a sweet, fruity, and nutty end. Flavor begins with a sweet and fruity flavor, then a roasted malt and coffee middle, and a lightly bitter but sweet finish. A lot of different flavors all battling it out in this one.

Black with a white head, this beer has a nasty feeling of having mixed the ass end of every beer at the end of the night, like there is a battle in the bottle and the world is not at peace. Sampled at the 2nd Annual Treasure Coast Beerfest in Ft. Pierce.

I’m glad the goat does fall and not just spring. Nice looking, reddish, with a thick creamy looking tan head. Large aroma, a bit spicy, earthy, nutty and malty. A bit of cherry in the palate, creamy mouthfeel, a bit sour, a touch of prunes, and that is about it. A little on the light side, but tasty. Very thin watery finish.
