While Krones was working on SweetWater’s brewhouse, which they were 3 months behind schedule on (that part is true), one of their sour kraut engineers drove a gabelstapler over Mr. Dank’s toe and broke it. Mr. Dankenschnitzel jumped a flug to Krones HQ in Deustchland to pick up his large siedlung check. Looking to quell his T Pain, Dank beelined it to Oktoberfest in Munchen and into the arms of a friendly farulein who quickly uber serviert him. Stumbling blindly, Herr Dankenschnitzel, laden in lederhosen and longingly looking for a lovely loo, humpelte into the Bitterburger Brewery to drain the main vein. Unable to hold it any longer, Danken Guender feuer abegespritzt all over the control panel, short circuiting their infamous Oktoberfest bier. The beer no longer fit the rhinobutt purity law, so Hans and Franz kicked his arsch out of the mother land and told Danky doodle dandy to take that mischmasch back to SübWaßer with him.

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.

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.

Bomber courtesy of CraftBeerDesign (thanks Geoff) poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of toasted malt, carmel, earthiness, yeast and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt and light earthiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

12/4/12. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Sweet caramel and a bit of earthiness in the aroma. Sweet burnt caramel and light fruitiness with lingering almost smokey dryness. Not bad.

Tasted on 11/25/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear but deep amber with an average beige head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is somewhat nutty with a nice caramel and bread malt profile, and some lightly roasted bitterness and a bit of a creamy note as well. The flavor is pretty much the same with some nice caramel bread and more bitterness and nuttiness than the nose suggested. The body is medium with a bit of a sticky texture, average carbonation and a long nicely bitter and caramel bread malt finish.

Copper pour. Aroma was full of caramel with lots of bready malts floating around. Touch of hops in there too. Flavors were slightly sweet with lots of caramel and toast. Mouthfeel was in the medium range with soft carbonation. I thought this was great for what it is. A ramped up marzen with a touch of booze.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark amber with a nice reddish hue. Large off white head and a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of malt, citrus, biscuits, and a hint of ginger. Taste is very malty with hops, a bit of orange, wheat, and caramel. Roasty and a bit doughy tasting overall. Not that this is a bad thing. Medium body, slick texture, carbonation isn’t too high, but very active. Finish is pronounced and long with an excellent malt aftertaste. Certainly isn’t very lager-ish. More along the lines of an amber ale in taste. Overall an excellent beer! Perfectly for a cool Autumn night.
