Poured into a snifter. Bottle #2141, from May 2010. I was a big fan of #2 and #3, so I had to purchase this as well.

3.0 A: Murky plum brown color. Two plus fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and a very short ring of lacing is left.

4.5 S: Like the past incarnations of the woodcut series, this too delivers the oak big time. Oak, oak, vanilla, oak, nuttiness, and oak. The base, though admittedly hard to find, works well with the barrel. Sweet neutral maltiness with some caramel and toastiness. Really wonderful smelling. Well done.

3.5 T: The flavors in this are intense to say the least. Again, tons of oak and vanilla. A mild nuttiness. Toasty with caramel and a hefty neutral malt sweetness. You can also taste the lager yeast, if that makes sense. I really like the way this tastes, but it's pretty damn sweet and I scored it accordingly.

4.0 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess. This would be smoother if it was less sweet, but still good enough.

3.5 D: Not the most drinkable beer, but it certainly is a bold one. Huge oak like it's brothers and a big Bruery sweetness to bring out the diabetes in everyone.

Thanks Bruce, for sharing yet another beer I can't get here on the west coast. Pours a hazy orangish amber color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Scent is delightful...tons of cedar and orange scents. Nice whiskey aromas with some sour green apples. Nut and cinnamon as well. Great aroma. Flavor is just as great. Initially its cinnamon with a good amount of cedar and oak. Then I get some citrus hoppiness. Then more oak and whiskey flavors. Lovely orange and citrus flavors throughout. Vanilla and caramel in the finish. Wow, this turned out better than I thought it would be. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a creamy, slightly boozy finish. Drinkability is high...very tasty. Overall, I never ever thought I would rate a marzen/octoberfest this high.
