K9 pours a darker amber color with a small lacing head. There really wasn't an aroma; smells like air. The taste had a nice sharp malty bite, with a good amount of spices. Good feel, decent flavors. Overall its a pretty average beer, enjoyable but nothing to special.

2013 vintage. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear copper with an average off-white head that fades and leaves nice retention and decent lacing. Great color. The aromas are pretty malty. Lots of caramel and cherries. This smells and tastes like a Marzen/Oktoberfest to me. The flavors have an earthy bitterness to it. Very grainy. More caramel malts. Some toffee in the mix. I'm really picking up alot of cherries. Some subtle cocoa notes are in the mix as well. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation.

This is an alright beer, but nothing too exciting and it becomes redundant quick. I can appreciate this, but it's not something I'd try again.
