COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with generous amounts of Vienna and Munich malts for a rich full-bodied malty flavor, Dragonhösen begins as a traditional Oktoberfest lager then stealthily breathes fire with 9% alcohol by volume. Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops add balance with a mild earthy aroma and flavor with moderate bitterness.

erikaraeb (271) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2017
On draft @ Boulder Beer. Definitely doesn't taste like 9% abv. Malty, bready taste typical to a doppelbock with something like funk on the nose. Rich brown in color. Not enough carbo, but perhaps is a result of the tap.

3.2
BlackBeerPG (894) - Darien, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Taste: Big warming alcohol whiskey, spiced, malt and woody oak notes. Bready, malt boozy nose. Copper, clear, smaller head with delicate lace on taster glass. Medium/Full body. There is a peppery almost barrel wood character to this boozy Oktoberfest.

3.8
DrnkMcDermott (3137) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2017
On nitro at Cellar Door. A solid amber body under a thick, creamy nitro head. There is not much extra to the smell, just a nice, fresh malt nose. But the palate has plenty of spicy noble hops. The peppery hop note is mollified by the smooth nitro bubbles. Malt is toasty and biscuity. Alcohol becomes much more apparent. Creamy texture from nitro our stays all the way to the end.

3.4
Carlisle (795) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2017
Draft. Pours medium brown with thick tan head that dissipates quickly and substantial lacing. Bread crust aroma with some stone fruit and a touch of alcohol. Plums and bread crust with some alcohol throughout.

3.1
DocJitsu (2036) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Pours a clear copper with a large, bumpy, eggshell colored head. Caramel, toasted malt, and faint fruit on the nose. Richer flavors than a usual Märzen. Less fruity as well. Full, nearly chewy on the palate.

2.7
Dredd (972) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2017
Subdued malt aromas, copper brown pour with thin tan head. Bready, malty palate with finish is a bit metallic with coarse boozy notes.

2.5
3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2016
From tap it’s clear dark brown with a short head. Aroma is malty and boozy with dominant notes of basic caramel malt, cooked corn kernels, hot fusels and a cosmetic-chemical dirtiness. In the mouth it’s medium-full bodied, sweet and chewy with low bitterness and rough carbonation. Outright messy beer, both in design and execution.

3.8
Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 6, 2016
Very good and dark. Malty and sweet. Strong in abv. Poured in sniffer at Sanford Brewing. Enjoyable to the last drop.

rdixon77 (3022) - Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Big and bready marzen style. Big sweetness and booze heat. Definitely in your face. Great name.

3.4
Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Sample at Daily Growler UA. Clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
