Bottle. Pours a reddish amber. Small off white head. Aroma of roast and malt. Really big flavors of roast and caramel. Some bitter in the finish. Flavors are bolder and not as sweet as other Octoberfests I’ve had. Would like to try as draft to.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice super hazy amber and brown coloured body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, earth, mushrooms and a bit of earthy malt. Medium-bodied; Strong malty and earthy flavours at first with a definite caramel and toffee flavour coupled with the light hops and rich malt. Aftertaste is nice and rich with a lot of caramel and a ton of earth - pungent and strong for the style. Overall, a nice rich marzen with a big earthy character and a decent amount of caramelised sugars. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased in a six pack from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 sampled while visiting in Northville, Michigan later in the day.

12 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, some earthy notes and light citrus, some cocoa, decent enough Oktoberfest, but nothing to seek out.

Pours a dark amber/mahogany with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts. Flavor is more malty than caramel, with a low dose of bitterness. More on the bitter side than sweet. Interesting, and not too bad.
