Light copper coloured body with a ruby glow and a thinnish tan head. Aroma of light earth, metal, apricots and a bit of fruit. Light-bodied; Sharp nutty and earthy flavour with a lot of depth, some caramel and sweet notes, but a strong malty flavour that really persists. Aftertaste shows mostly a malty and metallic flavour with some sweetness, but not too much. Overall, a decent marzen, not too complex, but a decent beer for the style - don’t expect too much here. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 09-October-2011 for US$4.49 sampled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 11-November-2011. radagast83 (8301) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2011
22oz bottle. Poured an amber-orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was malty notes, with a touch of spice, grains. Caramel, malts, grains, and a touch of spice come out in the flavor. A pretty enjoyable Fall beer. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Hazed dark orange. Aroma is bready, some toasted malt, nut, mild citrus. Taste is sweet with light floral hops and nice smooth malt. Mild beer, easy to drink. dmac (6434) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2011
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured an okay looking clear orange body with some rising effervescence underneath an average to slightly smaller foamy white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma is veggies, nutts, wet bread, grains, wet almond skins, toast. The body is fuller with a good dose of carbonation and an almost medicinal syrupy feel overall as you struggle to get this one down, not a good thing. Flavor of bad wet toast, green leafy bitter veggies, wet nutts, tea. Meh, it’s okay. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Pours a dark golden orange with tangerine hues and a one finger off-white head that slowly settles into a thin lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. A little pale for the style but not bad looking.
Spicy, slightly earthy aroma with subtle hops balanced by sweet malts and autumnal spice. Soily pine notes countered by hints of cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel and biscuit.
Medium bodied with a decent hop presence which provides some slight dry bitterness that compliments the spic character. Hints of cinnamon, brown sugar and ginger followed by a sweet malt backbone. Decently balanced but kind of bland and not terribly flavorful.

Draught, 5.8% as Epic Fest Devious II, but it looks like this one, not the #2. Papery, lagery aroma. Slightly hazy copper colour. Small bubbly white head. The flavour is quite malty and slightly papery. The paper is not unpleasant, probably intended. Other than that, quite clean. TheBeerGod (6253) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle - Release #6 5.8% ABV. Copper pour with a short tan head. Aroma is spicy hops, earthy notes, caramel and sweet malt. Taste mostly caramel and spicy hops with a touch of earthiness, some sweet malt and sweet tea. Body is medium and rather chewy with a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more spicy hops, chewy caramel, sweet malt, sweetened iced tea, and soft earthiness. There’s a touch of cereal in here as well. jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2011
