Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.30%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Kaiser once said, “Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world.” If the Kaiser and his significant other had tipped this bottle, we’d all be “sprechenden Deutsch!” We took all that is good in a traditional Oktoberfest – gorgeous, deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone and spicy, floral, pungent Noble hops – then intensified each into this, an Imperial Oktoberfest.

A: Pours a gorgeous clear red-orange color; one finger-width head, light lacing

S: Grassy, floral, slightly herby, lots of corn and cheap grain smell. Not too appealing

T: Corn, grains, and some grassy herbs. Kind of has that nasty Steel Reserve/Malt Liquor taste. Blegh, this stuff is terrible.

M: Thick, creamy, smooth, lightly carbonated

O: I was expecting a lot from this beer because I love everything Avery does, but this was terrible, just terrible. Would never buy this again

Pots a rich amber with a thin white head that disappeared to nothing, fast.
Aroma is super malty, lots of sweet notes, sugar and sweet fruit.
Very sweet flavors, carmalised sugars, almost barleywine like. This tastes nothing like a märzen. I get almost no hop presents at all.
Mouthfeel is really sticky, pretty weird body, it's big but thins out realy fast. Pretty clean finish, nice lingering feel. Going for style not great.
Overall not much like a märzen, but still interesting.H
