Trying the Atom Smasher tonight....and yikes....after the first sip....can't say I am a fan. The appearance is blah...the color is a hazy tan/light brown. There is virtually no head, after swirling the glass you get a white head that dissapates quickly. The smell is bread, sour dough, almost sour mash smell. The taste is very tart almost like drinking liquid sour dough bread. The mouthfeel is tough...high ABV masked by bready tart soury mash taste. Overall this is not a good beer....I'm wondering/hoping this is a bad bottle..or batch. Typically Two Brothers is a solid brewery this one in my mind missed the mark.

Picked up a mixed case at Costco, which came with a sixer of Atom Smasher.
Good bubbling, head after the pour, and head. Color is a hazey copper. Looks like a good Oktoberfest bier to me.
Sour mashed toasted grains and sour grapes. Thats it, not a very appealing smell to me.
Toasted sour bread with grapes make up teh taste. No oak or somewhat typical Oktoberfest flaors at all. I hop this is just a bad batch, if not this is the sourest interpretation of an Oktoberfest/Marzen I've ever had. I don't care for this beer at all and would bever recommend it.

thanks to jamie for this bomber.
A- dark copper red color with big head after slow pour into 32 oz mug.
S-funky cant put my finger on it but has some big german malts and hops. the oak age has some wood notes
T- also slightly funky. not original style oktoberfest by any means. Oak, licorish and dark sugar come big on this one.
M- tacky and bold. not bad but not that good.
O- My first two bros beer. Not a big fan of this one sorry. Much better oktoberfest beers out there. The oak on this one is lost IMO. Would like to try more of there offerings.

Picked up this bomber for roughly $6
Off a semi rigorous pour I get about an inch of white head. Amber in color with some haze. Head retention is good, leaving a solid cap. Lace is sticky, trails and rings.
Rye in aroma, bready yeast funk, a good amount of malt sweetness. Although aroma seems a bit muted.
Taste is syrup sweet, big turn off for me, plus it really hurts drinkability and also is overwhelming. Some more bready funk, almost barn like, you no the type. Some strange off flavors. Then rye at the finish as well as boozy heat, with still a blasting of syrup and candied apples.
Mouthfeel is slick and full bodied.
The one and probably only good thing about this beer is rye in flavor and aroma.

Served in pint glass at Sheffields.
A: appears a deep orange, slightly cloudy, zero head or lacing, appears to be somewhat thick/syrupy
S: the aroma doesn't feature much other than a sweet malty profile with some notes of caramel and candied fruits, no hop character to speak of, very mild
T: the front is very sweet, like the nose- candied fruits come through along with caramel and other malty notes, the beer finishes boozy. Overall, this beer lacks balance and doesn't resemble what I think of as an Oktoberfest. A bit of a disappointment.
MF: thick body, low to medium carbonation, slightly syrupy texture.
D: this is not my idea of a drinkable brew. The sweetness is nearly cloying and it doesn't feature what an Oktoberfest should be. The oak aging of this beer is virtually undetectable...I'm starting to question Two Bros use of the oak foudres. In theory, it sounds like a solid idea, but at the end of the day, it doesn't translate to a better beer.

Nothing wrong with this brew, nor was there anything really exceptional about it.
Sort of what I would expect from an Oktoberfest lite. Appearance and smell were pretty normal, taste and mouthfeel a bit light.
Not something I would order again, but fans of lite beers might like it.
