Grabbed this at the brewery. Believe it was to be a limited offering but seems like they are keeping it on due to its popularity.

Pours nice with a nice head to drink through. Could not smell much from it but thats usual for me. The taste is good, nice and malty. Nice and creamy and like all 2 Brothers Beers, very drinkable. Possibly dangerous at 6.3%.

330ml. I was storing this beer on its side in the fridge. On opening, most of the beer shot out - never seen anything like it before. So I've only got about 100ml or so to trial this beer.

L - deep red/amber, slightly hazy, thin white head

S - earthy, dark malt, with a note of marmite, nuts, and hint of dark fruit

T - dark fruits (prunes) along with hoppy bitterness up front, hint of toffee, some vanilla, tangy spiciness in finish

M - probably more carbonated than what I'm drinking (as most of the beer erupted onto the floor), light bodied for marzen, slightly watery

O - slightly flat, short version of a dark marzen. Good effort - drinkable. Shame most of it never made it to the glass.

Fairly clear dark amber colour with a small, shortlasted, light tan head.

Big, bready malt aroma with lots of melanoidin. Plenty of toffee as well. Slightly herbal. A touch too sweet.

Bready, malty and smooth but ultimately quite sweet. A touch too sugary for my likes in the style. Otherwise decent.

Medium to medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A fair but uninspiring beer with a touch too much sweetness to be great.

Pours light copper wtih a quickly fading head.
Nose shows lovely nutty malt in abundance! Very potent! Not much else though...
Nutty malt continues as a flavours alongside a little caramel. Pretty light on after that though. Need more malt, the nutty malt alone gets a bit boring.
Soft carbonation could be higher.

pours a pleasing pale copper colour with a thick creamy head that leave plenty of lacing.

grassy hops and sweet honey malt, some cornflakey ness creeping in

similar to the aroma, some grassy hops, then sweet honey malts, and the the slight cornflake think happens again. slight alcahol long after.

full bodied

fairly drinkable, abv is pretty well hidden. But not grainy, effervescent or delicately hopped enough to be a great marzen for me. Still, a pretty resonable effort from a brewery i have plenty of time for.
