4.95/5 rDev +27.9%
The beer pours a nice hazy copper color with a lacy head that lasts for a long time. The brew clocks in at 9.3 ABV and you get a little bit of that alcohol on the palate but the malt bomb that characterizes this seasonal quickly neutralizes it. There are hints of orange and of course the spices that are inherent in an Oktoberfest. There is a slight hoppiness to the nose but again the bready aroma and taste overpowers it. The beer is well balanced and the body is not too heavy. I could drink this all night, except since it's not exactly a session beer you'd find me snoozing after two of these 22oz bottles

Great example of the Octoberfest style taken a notch up. Big malty nose, thick textured mouthfeel, sweet but not too sweet, followed by some pleasing hop bitterness. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Very drinkable despite its stregnth. Pleasurable in every way.

Not a fan of big beers but this is the exception. The aroma is orange, orange blossom. You can tell this is a big beer. You get a full mouthful with this beer. It tastes of citrus only now much more grapefruit, hops but also a lot of maltiness. If you like beer with everything then this is the one for you.

Avery is really a hit and miss with me. So, I did not know what to expect from this brew. I was surpised! In a good way.
Poured into my Arrogant Bastard pint glass from the 22oz bomber. Pours a hazy copper color with a 2 finger tan lacy head that quickly disappated.
Smell was big yeasty bready tones with big malt scent. A touch of alcohol is noted along a smidgen of hops.
Flavor took me by surprise. Huge malt bomb. Big yeast and bread flavors smack you taste buds like a Chuck Liddel over hand right. Caramel flavors are big. The alcohol is not to noticable at first but becomes slightly present as the brew warms up. Just a slight touch of hops on the finish.
Mouthfeel is full but not mealy full. This beer is my new favorite for the Marzan style. I have not been this excited about a Marzen since Jubel was brewed. Thank you Avery for this bomb! Malt bomb that is!
