P: Pours a dark copper color with a full finger of frothy none colored head that vacates quick but leaves a nice creamy layer behind. Delicate lacing surrounds the glass.
S: Sweet dark fruits, plums, cherries, raisins, prunes, doughy yeast and a gracious spice aroma. Banana and clove and toasted caramel and toffee malt. Timid oak and spice bitterness.
T/M: Creamy and velvety mouthfeel with delicate carbonation. Toasted caramel and toffee malts base followed by stale wheat bread, molded wood, and a generous amount of spiced rum soaked persimmons. The finish is semi dry lingering honey and spiced hops. A musty taste surrounds the bouquet of flavors and is well fitting.
O: A solid Munich Marzen that has the spicy hop profile to back the toasted caramel and toffee malt base. Not overly complex but great flavors that provide a delicious October brew. The dose of hops may be a tad too much for the style but I liked it due to the fact that I love hops. Be sure to add this to your Marzen line up to try. Cheers!
