My first O-fest beer of 2014.Poured one and a half cans into a half liter stein with a deep bronze color with a nice fluffy one full finger white head atop.Aromas of caramel malts and mild sweet alcohol that lets you know this is a bit "bigger" than the usual suspect.Flavors of caramel and vanilla stand out most but it doesn't get overly sweet really,a bit of toast in the finish.I admit I liked this more than I thought I would,it's not as sweet as I thought it might be,solid.

A: Pours a clear very dark copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some reddish brown + mahogany highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering about 75% of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toasted malts with a light aroma of spicy + earthy hops. Slightly sweet.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of rich caramel malts with light to moderate amount of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of toasted malts with just a hint if nuttiness. Finally, there are light flavors of spicy + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with slightly less than moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This is a pretty decent Oktoberfest offering from Aviator, slightly heavier in the ABV than I would normally expect for the style but easily drinkable as that alcohol is well hidden from the smell and taste.

Poured on-tap at the Tap House and served in a shaker pint, the beer is an orange-caramel coloring with a filmy, white, clingy head. Nose of roast, nut, caramel, sweet potato, and hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Flavors are roast and rich, with nut and caramel throughout, on a slightly bready backbone. Smooth bodied and light, with a sweet and roast aftertaste. Slick, smooth finish. Decent beer.
