4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark red/maroon leaving a thick frothy white head. The aroma is caramel, nuts, some earthy herbal notes followed by a hint of smoked molasses. The taste is full frontal malt, balanced with a sharp hop bite that asks to be noticed. But that fruity, nutty, date sweetness dominates the palate. The finish is sweet but again leaves you with a small bitter bite, nice oktoberfest.

Dark roasted malts, light tannins, dark fig, tea, light burnt caramel, light grape, very watered down coffee, medium sweetness, almost cloying. One of the best October fests that I have ever had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wow, my second time being first rater. Poured a light color don’t remember what color but, it has very little head. Aroma was strong of hops. Taste was hoppy but, not too much. It finished dry which was nice.
