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.

2005 bottle. The day after Thanksgiving, what better beer to share amongst ourselves. Pours a nice clear orangish brown with a fluffy head. Aroma smells of toasted malts, sweet caramel apples, a bit of citrus, hints of floral hops. I left it outside overnight so the first sip was ice cold. Nice sweetness likend to brown sugar and full mouth feel. As I kept drinking and it warmed up, the malts and earthy spices really came through. It was nice and strong with a nice dry hoppy back of the mouth taste.

Aroma: rich malt mixed with grassy hops Taste: intensive malt with some notes of citrus. Hoppy aftertaste (pine and grass). I dont know why its in doppelbock style. Treated it as lager or marzen. Impressive beer (not as doppelbock!!!)
