VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Bottle cap reads: "Be True. Be You." Served in a steidel. Appearance: Very clear, dark amber color. Almost a finger of head, that quickly fizzles out into a thin ring. No lacing on the glass. Smell: Not aromatic at all. Slight hints of malt and hops, but that’s about it. Taste: Quite malty with a helping of hop bitterness. A bit of sweetness in there as well with an overall smoky taste. Mouthfeel: Not that much carbonation. It’s medium bodied and creamy. Overall: Not the best seasonal out there, but it’s not like Magic Hat was out to knock everyone out. It’s certainly one of the more interesting ones available. Definitely worth a try.

A little bit of smoke aroma in this brings it above the average for style, but still the taste overall comes off a bit weird. Pours clear copper. Average carbonation, sticky consistency. Aftertaste a little sweet and odd - seems slightly off just like their #9. Bottle from Smoke it Cigars in San Juan.

Bottle in NYC sept 2012. Clear amber beer with a small white head. Malty and dried dark fruits aroma. Hoppy and malty flavour.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Deep gold to burnt orange color is one of the best things about this beer. Faint citrus aroma, but solid, slightly tart taste. A little too smooth and watery. Love the label. Packaging should be a rateable category!

Not great but not awful. Just a little bland.

Beautiful looking beer. Decent taste. I’ve certainly had better Octoberfest beers. Not terrible, but not a favorite.

Pours an orange amber color with very little head. Smell is sweet malt with some caramel. Taste is sweet upfront with some hops taste that ends a little astringent. Mouthfeel is medium weight . Not impossible to drunk but not overly enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from mix and match six pack bought at Finneytown Kroger. Hazy medium to dark amber hue, sweet toasted malt nose, small white head that slowly left with good lacing, creamy texture, taste much like aroma wih a sugary note. Despite some astringency, a good oktoberfest.

superspak (3321) - Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/23/2012. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, golden raisin, toast, toffee, bread, light grass, and herbal hops. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, apple, pear, toast, toffee, nuttiness, bready grain, light grass, floral, and light herbal spiciness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, toffee, bready grain, nuttiness, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and light slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Oktoberfest style. Nicely robust with good balance of flavors; and very smooth to drink. This was a nicely enjoyable offering.

Good beer. I personally would like just a tiny bit less hop kick to it but otherwise I cannot make any real complaints. Is the first smoky malt beer I’ve had that I didn’t want to clean my tongue after and makes me interested to try others again.
