650 ml. Deep orange-copper with a film of bubbles. Nose of caramel malt, dry grass and orange liqueur. Taste is toffee, dirty orange, toast, a twang of apple cider, and dry grass. Medium body is soft and smooth with light carbonation and a dry alcohol finish. Quality brew that pushes this style beyond the envelope, but is a bit too boozy as a festbier for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 12/13/2012, thanks to curtismcarthur. Pours a russet amber color, clear, nice dense three-finger head, lots of lacing. Aroma is nutty, caramel, toasted malts, light toffee and pleasant fruitiness. Taste is caramel and burnt sugar, moderately sweet, leading into doughy toasted malts, balancing bitterness, mostly from a nice hop presence but also some booze. Medium body, just right to balance the flavors. Pretty decent.

22 oz. bottle shared by Jeremy. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized off white head. The nose is sweet caramel, some bread, and a hefty dose of fruits. The flavor is sweet caramel malt and fruity with a base of toasted bread. Mouth feel is thicker and more syrupy than most Octoberfest beers.
