A - Pours a deep brown, nearly black, with a small bit of ruby in it if it catches the light just right. Clear, and difficult to tell if there is any carbonation. Little to no head that quickly recedes and leaves a tiny film around the edge of the glass.

A - Roastier than I expected from the marketing blurb on the label. I'm getting mostly coffee scents here.

T - Sweeter than I expected. Vanilla and chocolate to go with the strong roasty flavors that dominate the nose.

M - Disagree with the medium-bodied crowd on this one. I would say that it is lighter than medium, and while it is smooth, it tastes almost slick. Not a huge fan of this one. A little bite lingers at the end, which is nice.

O - Frankly, not what I was expecting based on the label. That said, it's not bad, particularly if you like the more coffee-focused flavors. I still enjoyed it somewhat.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. 2012 batch. Sampled on November 17, 2012.

The pour is a handsome looking garnet, dark amber with a whole lot of soapy tan head that slowly simmers down.

Wheat is played down on the nose considering it is an Autumn Wheat Ale. But there is a rich ester of dark, roasted malts and the slightest hint of hops.

The body is medium and smooth.

Like the aroma the taste is focused more on the dark, roasted caramel malts with a tickle of crispy hops leading to a low bitterness on the back side. But the wheat is hard to come by.
As a Dunkel this is quite good.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a clear, amber-red body with a medium off white head that reduces slowly and leaves little lacing.

S- Caramel, toffee, bready-malt backbone.

T - Starts with a caramel, lighly roasted malt flavor and ends nutty with vanilla undertones. Aftertaste is piney and hoppy to balance the malt.

M- Medium carbonation, medium body. Crisp.

Overall a flavorful, nicely balanced autumn brew. It hit all the flavors that I like in an octoberfest. Worth a try.

A- A dark brown, almost black, beer pours nicely into a pint glass with a large off-white cap forming. Head retention is very nice and thick lace forms right at the top of it. Webs of lace continue nicely down the glass leaving some large patches by the time the beer is finished.

S- Malts lend nutty, cocoa, coffee and roasted cracked grain notes to start off the aroma. Beyond that there are hints of butter, dark fruits and caramel. Reminiscent of roast-heavy Brown Ales. Loses some strength with time.

T- The heavy malt base makes up the majority of the flavor as well. Specialty grains lend notes of toasted nuts, cocoa, cereal grains, caramel and a hint of wheat. Yeast provides a shot of dark fruits, cloves, banana and a tiny bit of bread. Hops really don't have a role in this beer besides bittering balance.

MF- The body overall is light but the wheat adds a nice substance and silky, creamy feel which helps support the flavors. Carbonation is at a moderate level and there is just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Drinks pretty much like an American Brown Ale with a pretty large dose of roasted specialty grains. Also reminds me just a bit of some European Dark Ales.
