Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, molasses, and candied fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, fruit, earth, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that has a solid smell, but the flavors have a bit of oxidation going on to me.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours orange to copper with a head that falls a bit quickly, but leaves lacing.

The smell is of steely caramel with nuts from the rich, complex malt.

The taste is of caramelized bread, some nuts and a touch of bitter noble hops in the finish.

It is smooth. Easy to drink.

This hits the style well. Very authentic. I am looking forward to drinking plenty of this during Oktoberfest season!
