Wonderful beer. Dry-hopped, crisp earthy aroma, munich breadiness, toasted wheat, some toffee/butterscotch notes. Despite the high alcohol on this imperial oktoberfest it is extremely smooth. Everything you want in an oktoberfest. onceblind (10297) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Clear beautiful copper under a thick rocky light beige head. Lovely nose of boozy caramel and a touch of floral grassy notes, and a light kiss of sweet cantaloupe. Creamy sweet flavor of boozy nougat, caramel, blonde toasted biscuit, and sweet floral hop resins with very low bitterness--hops for a light flavor balance only. Appropriate booze and sweetness levels with a good caramel base. SSSteve (4006) - - OCT 6, 2013
bottle. clear amber with a small white head. fruity, malty, estery aroma. more fruity than toasty. in typical leinenkugel fashion this beer has a good bit of residual sweetness. the malts are sweet with notes of toast, butter and caramel. fruity, berry-like hop flavors. full body with slightly sticky. sweet and tasty oktoberfest candy.

Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ large thick head w/ lacing. Big bold sweet honey aroma. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are honey, malt, caramel, and a light orange citrus. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, lively carbonation, and a warm finish.

On tap @ WI State Fair. Poured rich deeper brown with not much head. The aroma picked up warm caramel and nutty notes with spicy and leafy accents.. warmed up the back of the nose. The flavor found warm caramel, nutty notes, and a kiss of honey with black pepper, rye, and fruity accents.. spicy, memorable finish. Medium-plus bodied and well-balanced.. I need more!

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark amber with a half finger off-white head. Aroma of fruit, nuts and caramel. Taste is heavily sweet. Fruit, nuts and caramel. Full bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. I’ve never been a fan of the mar zen style until this brew. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Deeep orange color, almost red. Just a glimmer of head. Otherwise, looks like something you would kill for at 5:05pm in November.
The aroma is serious, severe sugars. Hefty, pungent caramel. Dried leaves, brown sugar and nutmeg.
The flavor is supremely sugary. Dried prunes, nutmeg, brown sugar. The nutty malts prevent it from becoming too saccharine. Has an aftertaste that is almost akin to a sour barleywine, or a slightly puckery quad. Unexpected for sure.
The feel is very thick and chewy. I have to say, I am enjoying this out-of-season beer. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at the micro.
Poured a syruppy light brown with a whisoy tan head. Aroma of light roast malts sweet caramels amd syrups a light touch of spiced bread. Full rich creamy palate. Flavor was surprisingly good. Like a big sweet oktoberfest. The seertness builds a bit and limits this to something id drink one kf but still darn good. BeerKurve (520) - - SEP 28, 2013
Clear Amber with a foamy yet fizzy head that fades after a few minutes; Good lacing Nose is citrus hops, caramel, roasted barley & malts, yeasts and some nutty notes. Flavor is floral hops, roasted barley, nuts, citrus, and yeasts. Body is moderate in weight yet thick at the same time; Carbonation is between mild and moderate. A bit boozy but surprisingly good. ronaldtheriot (1978) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest has a thin, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, brilliant orange-copper appearance, and a little bit of thin lacing left behind. The aroma is rather bold- rich, bready malt, brown bread crust, a bit of orange, some sweetness, and a pungent note. Taste is of rich, sweet, bready, barley malt, sweetness, mandarin orange pulp, brown bread crust, slight nut, and a fairly pronounced straight-forward hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, with some carbonation prickle, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest finishes decently crisp, easy-drinking, and remarkably smooth. Overall, this is delicious, and I strongly advise trying it. RJT
