On tap at Revolution. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is slightly sweet with a touch of caramel, some darker fruits, a hint of oak, and a very light toast. Flavor is similar. Sweeter up front with some darker fruits giving off a touch of syrup. A light caramel with a touch of oak and toast in the middle. Gets a bit chewy and bready in the sweetness towards the end as the oak and toast grows just a tad along with a light hopping. Dry and somewhat sweet with a very light, but balancing bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. A bit sweet with a light caramel, bready toast, oak, and darker fruit although it is well balanced with a somewhat sweet finish and light bitterness. Not bad.

A little syrupy, very sweet. Slight nutty, slight spicy. Has a medium palate with a low carbonated beer. Nice beer for a end of day

Tap at Stags Head, NYC. The aroma is vegetable, caramel bozy. The appearance is hazy amber, white head. The flavor is toast, caramel, oak, booze. Medium in body. Decent, a little strange for this style. DrnkMcDermott (3137) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2013
$3.50 cold bottle at Freikoten. Deep amber color with a bit of a hazy, thin head. Note of apple juice when placed within "nose shot." Closer in, I smell the Vienna malt, and an edge of yeast (this is, after all, from their oak foudre). Nice deep malts, tending more toward sweet than hoppy. A note of spice and yeast; likely a few bugs coming in from those wooden aging barrels. Some toasted biscuit and, yes, some roast squash. Yes, an all-around autumn beer!

A strong marzen. But nice bready malty beer. Nose is fruity. Flavor is yeasty. Body is creamy. Wood is subtle but obvious. Nutty creamy marzen like well done. I would drink this or get this. Nice hop balance. Well done. Niko100 (2994) - Chicago, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014

Bottle. Medium amber body. Frothy off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, wood, caramel malts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The raw grain taste is magnified by the oak. Notes of caramel and nuts.
