Beer pours a very dark crimson but looks almost brown if not held up to light. Little head with slight lacing.
Hard to pull much out of the nose besides the enormous smoke aroma. You can get some meaty, earthy aromas in the background.
Just tried the Ur-Bock last week and this Marzen is much bigger and bolder both in smell and taste. This Marzen is much more complex in the mouth altough I liked the nose of the ur-bock more.
Big smokey grilled meet flavors, with great carbonation. Very smooth and esay going for such a different brew. You can get some slight flavors in the background of burnt caramel, and gamey flavors.
I could drink 1 or 2 of these beasts but would probably want something else after that not sure though. Guess I'm gonna have to try:)
And if you do get some make sure you buy an extra bottle to cook with. The lady friend is making some BBQ sauce as we speak with it that's awesome!!!

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle in to a snifter.
A- Pours a clear dark brown body with some red around the edges. Head consists of a frothy gray cap which disappears in just seconds.
S- Smokey! Smoked, salty meats. Bacon. Pancetta. Brown sugar ham. A little campfire-like smoke, but it's mostly meat-like.
T- You guessed it... smoked meat all the way. Lighter flavor than the Urbock if I remember correctly. I can easily drink the whole bottle to myself without the flavor raping my taste buds.
M- Light body and medium-light carbonation. I wish it was a little chewier.
O- Pretty tasty overall. I'll definitely be having this and the Urbock sometime in the future.
