Draft sample at Knoxville Brewers Jam 2009.

355ml bottle. Lighter amber for the style, quickly dissipating head. Flavor is light for the style, a touch soapy and herbal, it is inoffensive but doesn’t bring much to the table.

12oz bottle at Bleu Cafe awhile back. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Sweetish aroma, enough hints at roasted malt to balance it out, mild chocolate even, lots of biscuit. Nice flavor - surprisingly nice. Slightly sweet, biscuity, bread, caramel, touches of chocolate. Surprisingly nice. PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof Brewing Company. Medium copper pour, soft white head. Aroma of ripening vegetables, some bubble gum. Flavor is grainy with some ripening vegetable notes, a hint of brown sugar and pumpkin to sweeten it up a bit. Mouthfeel is thick enough. wlajwl (6816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Malty and earthy in aroma, a bit different for an Oktoberfest. The flavor is earthy, similar to an EPA with maltiness and bread as well. A bit different for the style, leaning towards a hybrid of an EPA and an Oktoberfest, decent and relatively easy to drink.
