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, we’d 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.

jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours a clear orange/copper color, minimal white head with little retention and lacing. Sweet malty aroma, almost honey. Sweet taste of light fruit and light bitterness. Not very complex. Moderate mouthfeel and carbonation. Not a very good version of an Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This poured a dark gold/copper with a small head that dissipated quickly. After a minute or two, only a fine lacing remained around 3/4s of the glass. The smell is a carmally sweet similar to what you get from a barleywine like maybe a JW Lees or one of equal ilk. The initial taste is so darned sweet I'd call it a malt bomb but after further tasting, there is some semblance of balance and I have to say it does taste quite good. Over all, I recommend this one as a nice, sipping brew for the fall season.

TET (3176) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2017
A copper beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has dried and sweet fruits, also fresher perries, caramel, hint of flowers. Great aroma. Taste has dried furits, smooth maltyness, some perries, quite sophisticated. That can’t say a sweet because there are enough of bitterness involved. Only medium bodied, nicely smooth palate. Too quickly the glass is empty. Succesfully and balanced beer. The overal feelings are elegant and sophisticated.

Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is simple, caramel, clean. Taste is rich Oktoberfest style, caramel, a little bready. Slightly sweet, a little metallic.

phoner2 (46) - Racine, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2017
a thick sweet alcohol syrup. Not sure what association this has to octoberfest, the style is more like Belgian triple.

dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Orange-amber pour with a finger of beige head. Malty, buttery caramel. Just a touch of spice in the finish.

3.5
Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2017
2016 bottle. Mostly clear orange amber with an average off white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is malty with floral hops and toffee. Taste is full of rich roasted malts, toffee, caramel, and sticky, somewhat bitter hops. Thicker and lingering sweetness. Slight alcohol presence.

3.5
Torrefacto (1737) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2017
Pan, cereal, confitería y alcohol. Cuerpo maltoso, y final seco con presencia de alcohol.

Az Avery következő, mostanában beszerzett főzete egy duplabakként megjelölt, "imperial oktoberfest lágerként" hirdetett ital, melynek címkéjéről II. Vilmos köszön vissza ránk, ízig-vérig német jelleget kölcsönözve ezáltal a palacknak. A benne lapuló sör kinézete és aromái is a germán hagyományok mentén haladnak, a réz színű italból édesen malátás, karamellás foszlányok szűrődnek ki. Csemegeszerű jegyek, melyek által a kóstolás egyszersmind rendkívül veszélyes tereppé is válhat, amennyiben a világos italok leggyakoribb buktatói között számon tartható ragacsos illatok kellő támogatás ígéretének hiányában, tartalmatlan, gyengécske testből röppennek fel. Ez esetben azonban ilyesmiről szó sincs, s ilyenkor rögtön felértékelődik a mézes-mázos aromahalmaz: a szerkezet megfelelő alapul szolgál az édeskedéshez. Vaskos malátakötegek között bukkannak fel a süteménytésztás, élesztős, enyhén aszalványos beütésű elemek, majd egy halványan sós, közepesen száraz, fűszeresen komlós levezetés zárja a sort. Mindeközben a kortyok szabása ideális, kerekded jellegűek, nem élesek, tartalmasak, teltek. Nem feltétlenül az én terepem a lágerek világa, ezért csupán óvatosan jegyzem meg, hogy a duplabak besorolás némi fenntartással kezelendő.

trapped (3510) - New York, TURKEY - JAN 20, 2017
Draught @ Albion. Dark amber-copper with very small frothy beige head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish caramelized malt taste with little bitterness, alcohol undertones, medium malty finish with alcohol aftertaste. Quite potent and has significant alcohol bite.
