COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

A great local version of an Oktoberfest classic. Locally brewed by Two Bros. They nailed this one! damayor---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the bottle of a six pack into a pint glass. This beer tastes every bit as strong as it is, nothing is hidden. Some bitter, a lot of sweet, and big alcohol content. I’m always looking for beer which is strong and doesn’t taste like dog sh*t, It’s too bad I’ll have to wait till next year for this one to come around again.

A nice Marxen aroma on inital pour and initial taste doesn’t disappoint with characteristic Oktoberfest flavor. However finish is a bit unbalanced as oak aging over powers the palate and get more of a creamy tanin finish than is enjoyable

On tap at Revolution. Orange-brown color. Thin, steady head. Malty and rich. Very well done, manages to "imperialize" the style with getting sloppy or going overboard. Smooth caramel and doughy malt tones. Minimal to no hop tones. A great beer.

Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with thin white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. And that oak really adds to the complexity of the beer. Good on the palate too. Nice! Maybe the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had (even if it isn’t from Germany).

Wow... maybe im just bias but does Two Brothers make any bad brews. This one did not disappoint. Almost clear copper color with a 1/2 inch head. It has a mix of a sweet and sour smell. But the taste is the kicker. No caramel flavor or sweet sugary taste like some Oktoberfest, but it still has a strong Marzen flavor. This is a nice fall treat and the 7.7% abv is enough to warm you up on the chilly fall nights.... Booyaa

Pours a hazy orange amber with a khaki head that settles to a ring. Nose involves caramel, spice, oak, resin, light cocoa, apricot, toast, and damp cellar. Pretty sweet flavor, quite bitter. Heavier side of medium bodied, soft carb, syrupy, lightly tingly, with a toasty dry oak bitter finish. Cool version of an octoberfest, nice use of the oak, though this isn’t a mind-blowing beer. It’s just a really nice beer.

A: Red orange dark amber with white foamy head S: Like fall - toasty caramel malts - bread/yeast T: Follows the nose well - has maintained traditional Oktoberfest taste nicely M: Soft carbonation, good medium body O: A great Oktoberfest with one of the best palates of it’s style

A decent Oktoberfest but nothing really special. Dark orange appearance with a decent head. Sweet and malty in the taste and a bit musty in the nose. Tried with Nick and Matt in Chicago in 2012.

Heavy wheat aroma. Lighter amber color, no head. No carbonation. A different take on an oktoberfest. Smooth flavor but would like some carbonation.
