3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber brown with a large (2-3 fingers) rocky light tan head that lasted a little while leaving behind some puddled residue floating on top thus producing excellent lacing that really stuck to the glass.
The aroma was strong of a toasted biscuit malt, a nice piney hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and dried dark fruit.
It tasted malty-sweet with a hint of caramel at first and mildly bitter from the hops at the finish with a touch of dried fruit at the end with the flavor lasting a really nice long time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little dry in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a very impressive brew for this style, a perfect blending of flavors with a nice mild hop finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
BBD 1/12/15. Clear amber pour with a very nice dark ruby cast. Slightly above normal head volume, average retention and superior lacing. Light nose of biscuit with caramel notes over a light herbal/floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture. Above normal carbonation with a good bit of effervescence in the middle and on the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, somewhat complex and well balanced. It begins with toasty biscuit malt then flows into a mild caramel sweetness. The middle is slightly bitter with a nutty/spicy note. The finish is a bit crisp and leaves you with a lingering toasted grainy note. A good Oktoberfest.
