4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber colored body was clear, and the head that formed was well proportioned at two fingers thick. The aroma was a nice malty smell reminding me of toffee, and caramel apples. The taste was a bit more concentrated than the typical Oktoberfest beer, which is to be anticipated considering the strength. The toasted malts and clean lager character were spot on. There a spicy hop presence in the finish, which was quite a bit of a departure from the style.

"The only imperial octoberfest I can think to compare this to is the Kaiser, which was much sweeter. This managed a better balance of semi sweet caramel malt and a bigger dose of hops without being cloying. If not for the rather alcoholic finish, would have scored very high. Still the best new octoberfest of 2012?"

If you like oktoberfest beers and IPAs, this is the beer for you.

Bomber, about $6 from Sprayberry Bottle Shoppe, Marietta (I think they still have some, if anyone wants to try to find this one). Pours a deep hazy red with about 2 fingers of off-white head. Aroma is big caramel and quasi-Belgian yeast. Taste is caramel malts, some yeastiness, and a peppery hop finish. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. I probably should have had this several months ago when I bought it, since this has not aged particularly well. Overall, this is a good beer for the money, but honestly tastes more like a "Red IPA" than an Oktoberfest.

Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours brown with a small khaki head. Not much on the nose. Nice caramel notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid for style. I’m a bit baffled as to the high score this beer currently enjoys.
