Poured into a half liter krug, beautiful jet stream carbonation flowing, big deep crimson amber body filtered thus far with a big khaki light tan head. Aroma has big cereal grains, big bready caramelized malt sugars dark fruit notes, this is a higher alcohol version of Oktoberfest hints of mild plum and other over ripened fruits going on. Flavor equates to big malty layered complex malts that I can't get enough of, hidden alcohol...jacked up fruity notes not usually found in a lager beer but this one is froggy style at 7.3% abv definitely cranked up a few notches from your average fall seasonal beer. Mouthfeel is still easy to drink amazingly with all of the malts and extra alcohol I still want to gulp this beer be careful with the drinkability of this German inspired big American classic. Overall I'm happy with this malty offering from a typical big stout, IPA, porter brewmaster like Fred Karm...I can't wait to try the Karminator.

Poured into a balloon glass.

The body is a pure amber caramel color. A tan colored head recedes quickly to a fine wisp, little or no lacing on the glass.

The aroma is sweet with malt richness, slightly spicy, and a faint cherry fruitiness is also there.

The taste mimics the aroma only with a delicious malt body and a dry rye type of flavor the sits under the spiciness and touch of cherry.

Mouthfeel is dry, slightly creamy.

Overall, another exceptional brew from Hoppin' Frog. I love this one.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a mostly clear amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but light, the brew smells like toasted malt, caramel, grassy hops and some herbs. Luckily the taste has more kick to it. It tastes like toasted and grainy malt, caramel, grassy hops, nuts, and some herbalness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. It's also smooth and easy enough to drink. I think it's a good enough Oktoberfest beer, definitely worth a try. $7.99 a bottle.

22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, 2012 bottling. Pours fairly clear orange copper color with a 1 finger foamy off white head with good retention; that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, apricot, caramel, toast, bread, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, and light grass. Nice and pleasant aromas with solid balance of malt and yeast fruitiness. Taste of pear, apple, toast, apricot, caramel, brown bread, light nuttiness, brown sugar, and light herbal. Lingering notes of light fruits, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, brown sugar, and light herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice malt balance, robustness, and complexity; with a nice fruity/malty balance; and minimal cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good Oktoberfest style. Nice balance and robustness of malty flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
