With a little tip of the hat to our scientific, pioneering neighbors we created the innovative atom smasher limited run artisan beer. A heft, full-bodied lager reminiscent of Marzen beers from days gone by. However, this beer is aged in our oak foudres to add a complexity unmatched by the imported version of Oktoberfest beers today. Just add Ledersosen!

97th rating of this beer, and my 97th Illinois rating. Spooky. During Scion’s Halloween beer festival. Even spookier. Bottle. Clear golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of biscuit and light fruit. Taste is malty, peppery hay.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
The pour is a slightly cloudy amber color with a thin white head. A bit of oak and grass to it. Not really much aroma to it overall, maybe a little bit of malty sweetness. A very faint grass flavor with a little bread. A little bit of lemon zest and tartness. Really an odd beer. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Tmoney99 (13615) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear brownish color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
A golden amber ale with floaties and a thin white head. In aroma, a strange oxidized malt with light coriander and wood notes. In mouth, a decent crisp malt with grassy notes, light wood. On tap at Sunswick.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of Exiled) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of cooked ham with sugary ketchup, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of orange, toasted grain, oak, and caramel.

Dogbrick (11626) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2011
On draught at Vintage Estate. Hazy dark amber pour with a medium thin white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, sweet fruit and faint grassy hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

crossovert (11424) - Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 355ml bottle. Darj amber pour, nice cramy off-white/cream colored head. Aroma is heavy noble hops, and a bit of oak, malt well covered by the two imo.The flavor is sharp and bitter, not much mid palate. Some creaminess, some caramel/soy. Maybe my palate is fucked up but not getting much complexity here. And interesting htat the oak aged oktos are among the hoppiest, perhaps they are thinking the hops will wear out during hte aging but they don’t. Re Rate 355ml bottle. Pours a bit darker than most, clear, This one has an oak smell also a urinal aroma. I’m so pissed I didn’t get to try all these oktos blind this year. The aroma isn’t big here either. Flavor is definitely oak-tinged, also lemon lime, some brandy, the wood changes this alot. The malt notes are toned down a lot, it isn’t as hoppy as I remmeebr though it does have some finishing bitterness. It has a unique flavor, but perhaps not enough of it, it is jsut bittersweet and a bit underwhelming.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Light brown color with a light cream colored head. Quite a typical marzen with a lot of up front toffee malt, dark wheat bread,wheat thins, toothpick, and light hoppy hints dancing around.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Light honey and barley malt aroma. Amber with large off-white head. Sweet corn-syrup, toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Okay - on the sweet and hoppy side.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Tap @ Happy Gnome. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly tame caramel, slightly spicy, a touch woody aroma. Mild toffee, caramel, a bit chewy, nutmeg flavor. Nothing all that special but decent to drink.
