CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Just found an old rating I had for this circa Sept 2008: Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet toasty grainy caramel malts and a touch of nice noble hoppiness. Body starts with good fullness and rich sweet toasty Munich malt with a good balance of bittering hops before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very true to style and well made.

Not a big fan of this style, but this one deserves its just due as a beer I wouldn’t mind having more than one of in a given sitting.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2009 Draft at brewery. Pours a clear reddish-brown. Weak aroma of roasted malts. Nice flavors of chocolate malt, some roasted barley and caramel. Very clean finish but not as thin as you might expect, pleasant and easy to drink. The chocolate caught me off-guard, but works very well. Nice.

Average fest beer. A bit watery and without direction. A letdown based upon earlier reviews.

On tap-Maryland Brewer’s Oktoberfest. Reddish Brown color w/a moderate tan, foamy head. Roasted malt aroma. Sweet flavor of caramel, cane sugar, roasted malt, & figs. Little bit of a bread dough taste to it. Good mouthfell, nice finish. Decent Brew
