A rather potent and heavy version of an Oktoberfest. Very nice but nothing you would throw back a lot of. Serving: Bottle

Copper with light, beige, head / Sweet nose of spun sugar and malt / Medium body, malty and sweet, cloying, very low carbonation and hopping / Flavors of spun sugar and cooked fruit / Not true to the style, and ignoring that, not a very good beer.

Pint pour @ Fountainheads. Dark orange with an off beige head and lace. Taste is caramel, toasty malt, slightly citric. The bitterness develops nicely. Finish is lingering and decent. Overall not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours deep golden with a creamy beige head. Aroma of honey, and caramel, sweet malts, toffee and candyish. Toasted bread and a bit cookie like. Flavor is very sweet, a bit of oak and a lot of honey, so sweet and candy like. Finishes a bit on the bland grainy side, and a creamy toffee richness. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. I actually like the idea of an oak aged oktoberfest, it is just too sweet and a bit cloying to be elite for the style.
