Bottle. Suprisingly dark, ruby colors only showing through with moderate light. Clear with a decent light tan head that fades to a ring and leaves fair lacing behind. Aroma is rich and malty with a little background of earthy hops. Lighter side of medium bodied. Flavor is pretty malty and a bit too much of residual sugar. Decent earthy hop bitterness. Not bad.

Pours a dark caramel color with a hay aroma. Taste is cereal, malty, with a caramel sweetness in the aftertaste. A slight bitterness in the aftertaste. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Growler filled about a week ago. Kept cool.
A: Dark brown with a little bit of head formation, a central cap of the peanut foam is present. Red hue where light shines through. No lace.
S: sweet cherries, wood, rye bread, sweet yeast (I’ve had enough Bayern to smell a distinct sweetness from it). It’s pleasant.
T: Nutty, bland and watery. Kinda has an original corn nuts flavor.
M: Thin with pretty substantial carbonation. Semi dry finish.
O: Decent beer, but not particularly taking my fancy.
Serving type: growler

Has more roasted falvor than I was expecting. Good rich color, medium head. Finishes with a little sweetness to it. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Pony keg purchased by my friend Skinny Heitz for Oregon’s dismantling of the USC Trojans. Dark brown pour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of apples, molasses, caramel. Flavor of caramel malt, pepper and molasses. Very weak mouthfeel. Mediocre beer but everything tasted pretty great on that epic night.

Couleur ambré avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt et cereals. Le goût est du malt, cereals et levure. C’est un très peu sucré. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Nice dark amber color. Cream colored head. Sweet and malty. A very drinkable brew.

Bottle served in a dimpled mug. 2010 edition. Pours murky dark brown with orange hues. Minimal head and lacing. Shame about that. Maybe pour this one closer to room temp. Aromatic nose of fruitcake, Frankfurt bread pudding, sweaty sock funk, and soft molasses sweetness. Mildly sweet flavor. Light-medium body, average carbonation. Malty finish for a malt focused brew. Good stuff. Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Very dark. Aroma of campfire smoke. Initial sip is full with candy malt sweetness. Middle has moderate alcohol mixed with caramel. Finishes tingling on the tongue with a nice bready malt taste and slight hop bitterness. Definitely an American marzen, prob why I like it so much. Screw Munich, I’ll take Montana!

caramel and nutty aroma, dark brownish red, good body, malty and semisweet with a lingering hop finish
