The Kaiser once said, "Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world." If the Kaiser and his significant other had tipped this bottle, wed all be "sprechenden Deutsch!" We took all that is good in a traditional Oktoberfest - gorgeous, deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone and spicy, floral, pungent noble hops - then intensified each into this, an Imperial Oktoberfest.

Nice smooth and balanced Oktoberfest. Has that perfect blend of malt, caramel, slightly sweet flavor you would expect. Deep auburn color with the sweet malty aroma. There is a reason why this is one of the highest rated Oktoberfest.

Batch #12, August 2015. 9.3% ABV. Pours a crystal clear amber color, with a tan head. Aroma of malts and sugar. Taste is smooth, sweet, malty, and very drinkable. A nice Marzen, with a bit of a kick...Thumbs up on this one.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2015 Drinking 2013. This hits you with the alcohol up front. It has a bit of a smoother finish than other octoberfests.

Rated based on notes taken Sep 2012 -- Im assuming this is the 2011 version since a 2012 isnt listed. This beer fucking rocks. An imperial Oktoberfest super malty, hint of booze; what else do you honestly need? Like German style beers? Drink this one.

Caramel and toffee nose with a mystery fruit lingering in the back. I love the intrigue of the flavor! Raisin, floral, resin, with lots of malt finish. This is a great fall beer. I plan to age one for this fall and one for next. Compare the changes in flavor
