COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why wait until October? It’s name is close to the more familiar October beers you’ve heard of, but it doesn’t have much more in common. The Martin House fall seasonal is brewed to 6% abv with oats, caramel malts, and cherry wood smoked malts. We use a Munich malts for the base of this beer giving it defined malty flavor, perfect for the fall weather. The oatmeal lends a smooth and velvety mouthfeel. The smoked malts give the beer just a hint of smoke flavor. We add generous portions of Chinook and Northern Brewer hops for flavor. While SeptemberFest is hoppier than most brown ales, its not overwhelming and compliments the maltiness perfectly. 22SRM.

Pours a clear brown color with off-white head. Oats, caramel malt, spice, and some dark fruits and wood on the nose; follows onto the palate. Lot’s going on with this brown ale. Well done.

On tap at Untapped Fest. Amber brown brew with some off-white head. This beer is tough to place - nose of roasted and caramel malt, slight smoke, some hops. Lots of malt in the flavor with a smooth and smoky finish.

On tap at FM Smokehouse. Brown in color with a good sized cream colored head. Aroma is of toffee, chocolate, light florals and citrus, and pie crust. Taste is of chocolate, oatmeal, pastry dough, with a light citrus tang. Very smooth and easy to drink.

On tap at Untapped fest. Brown-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong chocolate notes as well as some light smoke. The flavor is a bit different. While the dry chocolate is still present, I get a lot more smoke and charred malt notes in the flavor. Still, this is an easy to drink beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting beer. Glad I got to try it.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2013
On tap at the Zio Carlo release party. Pours a hazy maroon orange color with a ring of tan head. Aroma shines here. Lovely notes of caramel sweetness and heavy malt mixed with a roasted element. Has parts that remind me of the pretzel stout. Flavor is certainly malty, roasted, dry with a smoked characteristic that lingers through the finish. I didn't pick it up right away as its subtle but once you place it, it is definitely present. A nice addition to their seasonal rotation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerliner Truck, GABF 2012. Dark dark brown with a thin foamy light khaki head. Aroma had some exciting tones of smokey chocolate, light smoky char, and light cedar wood with some toffee. Flavor is dark and sweet with some sharp oaked tones, earthy toffee, bittersweet chocolate, and slight smokiness on a clean finish.
