look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a clear copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight pale malt, slight yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight pale malt, slight yeast, hint of wood, hint of alcohol, and a hint of hop. Overall, weak appearance, but good feel, body, and blend.

Pours a clear, amber color with a tight, white head that leaves little to no lacing.

Smells of oak and toasted malt.

Tastes of the sweet, toasted malts backed by the oak and a touch of hops. Malts lead off with sticky, sweet caramel and toasted bread. Brown sugar and a bit of nuttiness add next. Vanilla and woody oak notes come towards the middle before some earthy and herbal hops. Finishes fairly clean with a bit of lingering caramel.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nicely done Oktoberfest

2.83/5: Did it need to be almost 8%? I can feel its bite and the toasted caramel sweetness; oak doesn't really show up

12oz bottle bb 12/19/17 poured into a.5L krug at fridge temp 7.7% ABV 22.6 IBU. The beer pours bright copper in color and an aggressive pour offers about one inch of khaki head. The head subsides quickly to a light ring around the mug and some paper thin film islands. The aroma is semisweet toasted bread. There may be a hint of alcohol in the nose as well. The taste is full with oaky notes front to back along with burnt sugar, caramel and a bit of booze. Mouthfeel is medium plus bodied, moderately carbonated, and moderately dry in finish. There is no perceived bitterness nor any cloying or overly sweet tastes. Overall, very good just for being unique. With a touch less booze and a drier finish, this beer could be really special. It's worth a try for fans of Oktoberfest beers and straight oak aged beers.
