3.98/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours a surprisingly dark brown color with a slight orange tint with a thin, off-white head. Very murky body with fine sediment and light carbonation.

Aroma:
Clean but thick malty caramel. Fresh bread with light toffee notes and even lighter citrus notes.

Taste:
The phrase "liquid bread" has never rung truer than it does with this beer. Rich caramel and a heavy nuttiness dominate the sweet flavor profile but with an unfinished quality... It reminds me of a sample of wort, fresh off the stove and ready for fermentation to begin. Malt seems a bit burnt. An earthy bitterness hits at the end.

Mouthfeel:
The thick body will slow your sipping as this is one heavy beer. It's very filling! Carbonation is nearly impossible to detect. Sweet, sweet finish.

Overall:
A fantastic example of the style. This is a meal in a glass, so prepare to sip it slow. I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes their beer malty and a bit on the sweet side.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. White head, moderate retention, soapy lacing, light, clear copper body. Aroma includes a caramel malt sweetness, light bitterness and a nice classic German marzen crispness. Taste follows suit, with a nice nutty, chestnut flavor. Very easy to drink, quite flavorful.

A: Pours a nice amber color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a very thin cap

S: Very bready and malty. A bit of graininess, toastiness, and sweetness as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of the grain and huskiness followed by a light toastiness. A hint of sweetness, but not much. Quite hearty and bready. A restrained hop presence sneaks in with a touch of earthiness and a faint herbal note. Finishes clean with a bit more husk

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very hearty and satisfying brew. Quite easy to drink and quaff. Certainly meets the style. Definitely one of the "truer" and more traditional O-Fest beers out there. Worth giving a shot

A very satisfying beer.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle (with a ceramic stopper cap) into a pint glass. Honey-amber colored with off-white head. Lots and lots of noticable sediment. I like the hearty look of this beer but I know some will be put off by the amount of visible sediment.

Rich, malty aroma. Flavor is a mouthful. Lots and lots of malt. I can pick up notes of pears, dates, figs and a hint of caramel. Nice background of hops with lots of spices thrown in the mix (I'm assuming from the yeast sediment).

Very full and rich mouthfeel.

Lingering flavors of caramel. A tiny bit of caramel. Very dark-wheat bread-like.

I love this beer and will be drinking more of it in the future.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a murky, but effervescent amber/brown with a finger of tan head. Opened with a slight whoosh. Some lacing & head retention

S: Orchard fruit, spicy hops

T: Pears & figs up front, some brown bread & some woody hops. More of the same as this warms. Fruittyness & leafy hops, as this warms. Finishes dry with pears, figs & woody hops

MF: Light bodied, fairly soft carbonation

This beer seems a bit tired, nothing special here

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear light amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a thin ring around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of caramel and bready malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of caramel, but the hops prevent any malty sweetness from being noticeable. There are some hints of spicy yeast towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear light amber in color. The beer has a finger tall frothy off-white head that quickly reduces to a thick ring at the edges of the glass and a couple of patches. Light lacing is observed.

S: Some lovely aromas of bready malts, lots of wonderful maltiness and some light caramel sweetness.

T: The flavor very much follows the smell, lots of bready malts and caramel sweetness but there is a pleasant bitterness present in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry and a very slight amount of wateriness.

O: Very easy beer to drink and quite tasty. I found this beer in a random case made up from survivors of cases with breakage for about $2.99 so it is a great bargain (it is a 16.9 oz bottle).
