Very sweet, and concentrated maltiness to this with a surprisingly evident floral hop aroma and flavor....sticky sweet texture...syruppy....bready malt notes...
Worth trying but too overwhelmingly sticky sweet despite the evident floral hops....needed something different to cut into this concentrated malt..
I love the Big Eddy's usually but won't be going back for this one....not bad just not a home run...

Poured into a Joseph Huber glass mug.
A) Golden copper, brownish orange center like fall leaves, light shining through brings beautiful orange color. Two finger head that is copper in color not pure white.
S) Malt, bread, warm pretzel, no hops at all
T) Baked bread, taste the Munich malt right away. Little syrup in the taste too, but not too much. It's an malt bomb for sure.
M) Thick, concentrated and very smooth
O) It's a great malt beer, not a traditional Oktoberfest, very very good tasting beer. It's like a concentrated beer, meaning they brewed regular Oktoberfest doubled the recipe then boiled the crap out of it to thicken the brew. 8.5% and it will knock u down for sure. Should be rated higher.

Served in a tumbler.
Because we demanded another imperial O-Fest. Well, I assume someone did... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear copper-auburn topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises sourdough, toffee, very mild grass, and a pinch of what seems like clove or brown sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with the sourdough really filling up a lot of space, leaving the grass and toffee to scrounge for what they can. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slightly slick feel, and a drying finish. Overall, a decent enough imperial O-Fest, but that sourdough character doesn't endear the bottle to me all that much.

clear deep orange hue with almost no head. good clarity. lots of rustic earthy hops on the nose. Very hearty hearty grains.
Big mouthfeel with just enough carbonation to break things up. Pretty good taste. A lot milder then expected and not as hoppy as I was hoping but then again it is a marzen.Hearty breads, lots of grain husks, subtle dark fruit but thankfully is very restrained. Some hops make themselves known and attempt to balance but some sweetness lingers. Touch of alcohol heat lingers as well but really not as much as expected. Taste like a fairly good marzen style beer with a deceptive amount of alcohol and a heavy body. Bready, Rustic, Earthy. Not bad at all. Pairs pretty well with pita rounds and red pepper hummus.
