COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Noble Chaos is an Oktoberfest/Marzen (German-style amber lager) with a subtle hop bouquet and toasted caramel malt flavors. It is a well-balanced beer that finishes fresh and clean. With a pleasant nose and medium body, this brew is a taste of the fall season.

Darker amber, decent off white head, nice lacing. Lots of special roast in aroma, faint herbal/spicy hop character in the background. Flavor much the same, lots of roast, herbal/spicy hop backend. Medium carbonation. Interesting take, just not my thing.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Hazy amber color pour with a small foamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, toasted nuts, a hint of spicy hops and vanilla. Flavor is slightly sweet and caramely with a bit of hops on the finish. Highly drinkable.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2010
12 oz bottle; thanks to deyholla for the trade; clear dark amber with thick creamy tan head lingering; orange peel, stale malt, almost metallic aroma; sweet malt, dried fruit, honey; nose definitely seems off to me with obvious metallic notes; not as bad as the stout infections, but heading that way IMO; some sour is there in the flavors too; not sure what Short’s deal is lately

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle into a nonic pint. Pours a nice deep amber. Slight white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly roasty, a bit of grass. Taste is sweet, sugar, yeast, nice hop bite, grass, bread. Not bad. Easy drinking.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma is packed full of malty notes, showing sweet caramel, toasted malt, and a slight hint of vanilla finished off by a light earthy hop. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is moderate, soft, and chewy. Not a whole lot about this one to keep interest other than it’s easy drinkability.

flatmatt (1466) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is very nutty (peanut buttery specifically) and earthy with notes of caramel and dark fruit. Peanutty and toasty malt flavors blend with earthiness and bits of dark fruit and hop hints. Alcohol is just slightly more apparent than it probably should be for the ABV, but this is a nice version of the style.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Sampled from a bottle, the beer had a dark gold pour with red and brown mixed in, there was a little haze (some bottles had more haze than others) and gave a one to two finger very faint off-white cover (bubbles had a faint yellow tint to them) that receded to a thinner layer and ring, the nose was malty with melanoidins like notes, a little toasted malt, caramel and some chocolate tootsie roll like notes, some bread, it had malt and bread sweetness, the hops were light on the nose, the flavors were malty, caramel, faint chocolate that resembled tootsie roll and bready, it had light spice hops, the flavor had some sweetness but not as sweet as the nose, the finish had a light hop bitterness with toasted malt and caramel following, it felt light to light medium on the mouth and was creamy, it had soft to average carbonation, this beer was on the sweet side for an Octoberfest beer, also, and this beer appears to be different than what the Short’s Noble Chaos that was made a few years ago, a good drink but not what I was expecting.
