12 fluid ounce bottle
Glass of Choice: Nonic Pint

Bottle Notes: “Oktoberfest Style Lager. Aged in French Oak Foudres”

Eyes:
Translucent copper/amber body. Off-white head, about an inch thick collapsed and left a respectable amount of lacing.

Nose:
Herbal hops. Toast. Sweet bread.

Tongue:
Rich presence of malts: Dark fruits, biscuit, and sweet rolls. The hops snuck in and enhanced the fruity flavors, finishing with a short-lived, yet strong hit of citric hops. Very subtle signs of oak from the aging. Does not fall short on flavor. Minor woody/earthy notes from the oak, nothing spectacular. Medium-full body. Moderate/low carbonation.

Overall: While the aging concept makes this Oktoberfest sound appealing, overall it fell shy of expectations.

I am digging this marten style beer. The hoppy smell and taste of Carmel and spice was a unique treat. Also has that German bite and finish.
