4.5/5  rDev +24%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This pours very rich mahogany/ruby red, leaving a bit of a head which dissipates fairly quicly.

Smells super malty and dark/sweet, with a bit of floral hop.

Taste is VERY rich in roasted malt, and a bit of hops to balance. I really like this because of what it does NOT have - many oktoberfests, even the standards, have a bitter tar-like flavor that stabs the tongue. This does NOT.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

Finish is dark and sweet.

This is one of my favorite oktoberfests, and I'd recommend it to anybody.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours clear amber with a creamy white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel, grain and a hint of earthy hops.

The taste is of caramelized grain, nutty malt - sweet, but with a hint of noble hops in the finish.

It has a smooth, medium body.

A true-to-style O-fest. I will get more of this next fall!
