2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint on tap. Clear, deep mahogany with a few bubbles. Nose is dusty grain and stale coffee. Taste is charred grain, sourish dark grape candy, coffee and a bit of unsweetened chocolate. The harmonious melding of these flavors would be very nice, however they appear mostly as a choppy and unsettling series of single note solos. Light-medium body is a bit too fizzy and lightly astringent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 10-26-2011 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small beige head that mostly diminishes, amber transparent body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, nutty and some spice. The flavor is sweet, caramel malt, nutty, and spicy. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer does not have a lot of character and the flavor is bland and boring.

Bottle: pours a nice nutty brown with a small light tan head. Aromas are sweet bread, some nutty and chocolate aromas too. Taste is nice and sweet, roasty, and very drinkable. Love seeing this style around, and this is a good example of it.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Listermann Oktoberfest pours dark drown. Nose earthy malt (but in the background a faint hint of dog poop, like the stuff that’s aged in your shoe for a couple days and you try it out with a stick) Taste sweet malt toffee a little biscuit. If it wasn’t for that wierd aroma, I would have rated it higher.

Surprisingly light. Notes of carmel and ever so slightly sweet with a long mild after finish that stays on your tongue .
