4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. clear amber with a large, fluffy, beige head. malty nose of an in-style beer half it’s size. abv is very deceiving. tastes like a regular 5%-ish oktoberfest. lots of toasty malt with only bittering hops. i like a few floral notes but this is really good anyway.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear ruby/brown with large very long lasting off white head. Good initial lacing. Aroma is mostly all grain and surprised there is not a signature dank hop punch. Known earthiness and caramel tones. Taste is has a lingering and rounded nutty, earthiness. Finishes stronger than its starts. Rich caramel, grassy hops, and big malts. Alcohol creeps in after the first couple sips. Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma is malty with a woody hint and a touch of nutmeg. Pours a beautiful clear mahogany with a fairly thick light wheat head. Rich, malty flavor has subtle hoppy, earthy and caramel tones and a nutty hint. Texture is a little bit "dirty" (seems to have a little fine dust) and has good body and fizz. Prosit for Oktoberfest!

22oz bottle. Bright red auburn color. No head, no fizz. I guess this bottle was so fresh, the force carbonation did not take. Aroma of toasted grains; grassy, wooded, earthy hop nose. A touch of oaky vanilla scent. Smells like an oaked Vienna. Loads of flavor, dispite not being carbonated, its tasty. Loads of toasted barley flavor, sweet, a touch of nuts, musty caramel, wood, and a spicy note blended in. A touch on the boozie side. Alcohol is noticable. Nice lingering bitterness. Hops are in quite an abundance. Earthy, grass, wooded, and even some herbal spicy hops. The hop forward character of this beer. leads me to believe this is more of an Imperial Vienna. But I’ll take it a Danktoberfest. Even without fizz.(3478)
