Ugh. Not a fan of this beer. Lacks all of the malty goodness of an O/M. Aroma was weak. Earthy with a slightly toasty malt smell. Not inviting. Pour was a clear medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was not very good. This beer did not benefit from any oak aging as its flavor is thin enough that you can’t taste it. Lager yeast with a big metallic flavor dominated with roasted malt in the finish.

A little syrupy, very sweet. Slight nutty, slight spicy. Has a medium palate with a low carbonated beer. Nice beer for a end of day

Tap at Stags Head, NYC. The aroma is vegetable, caramel bozy. The appearance is hazy amber, white head. The flavor is toast, caramel, oak, booze. Medium in body. Decent, a little strange for this style.

On tap at Barcade, Brooklyn, New York, NY. A dark amber coloured coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Sweet, malty aroma. Tastes malty, sweet, fruity and some caramel. Not so well balanced but quite drinkable anyway.

$3.50 cold bottle at Freikoten. Deep amber color with a bit of a hazy, thin head. Note of apple juice when placed within "nose shot." Closer in, I smell the Vienna malt, and an edge of yeast (this is, after all, from their oak foudre). Nice deep malts, tending more toward sweet than hoppy. A note of spice and yeast; likely a few bugs coming in from those wooden aging barrels. Some toasted biscuit and, yes, some roast squash. Yes, an all-around autumn beer!

Typical marzen. Heavy on the malts and slightly sweet. The oak aging does give it just a hint of something special, but not enough to make it awesome. Overall, it’s just ok.

From notes. Tasted from bomber bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear amber orange with a thin white head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is fairly non-descript with a hint of malts and spices peeking through. The flavors are mostly malt with some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a medium sweet and malty finish.
