Tap. Orange pour with a white head. Toffee and sweet caramel aroma and taste. Nice smooth palate. Solid brew. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear amber/copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, light spice, oak, some fruit character especially on the nose, general bitterness to the finish, ok. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Light brown color with a light cream colored head. Quite a typical marzen with a lot of up front toffee malt, dark wheat bread,wheat thins, toothpick, and light hoppy hints dancing around. KyotoLefty (10808) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2016

Tap @ Happy Gnome. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly tame caramel, slightly spicy, a touch woody aroma. Mild toffee, caramel, a bit chewy, nutmeg flavor. Nothing all that special but decent to drink.

Amber pour. The nose has a little bit of light chewy fruitiness. Dried berries and a little bit of tobacco. Fairly rich and a little bit chewy as well. Fairly estery with some lingering toastiness. Lean and bready with some astringent bitterness. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2012
12oz bottle, best by 11/22/12. Another Two Bros. beer aged in French oak foudres? They must be getting a bulk discount on those. Was surprised when I actually sat down to taste this beer that the ABV is labeled 7.7% - definitely not your average oktoberfest. Clear orange-red color, minimal white head, leaving some lace. Good, more crisp lighter carbonation, dry finish. Very interesting toasty aroma - much more substantial than other oktoberfests, which I usually find to be a little lacking, yet no decrease in drinkability, here. Some dates? Light spice, definitely complex malt aroma. Light bitter taste, some savory. This is really tasty, and drinks like it’s 6%. Along with Southern Tier Harvest, this is definitely another offering that I’ll be frequently adding to my fall mix-packs. b3shine (9260) - Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with thin white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. And that oak really adds to the complexity of the beer. Good on the palate too. Nice! Maybe the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had (even if it isn’t from Germany). drfabulous (8813) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Draught at Dragon Kings Daughter in New Albany. Amber color. Caramel and toffee and a fairly amber taste. Lots of amber in this marzen. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Sample at the Oktoberfest tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/23/10. Clear amber pour with a thin beige. Malty nose with some alcohol and a bit of tartness. Malty flavor with some tart fruit and a thin finish.
