Served in a Pint glass October 11, 2008 at the River Horse Oktoberfest.

a - Poured a deep maple syrup color. 1 finger head lasted a few minutes.

s - It was outdoors and I'm not good with smell anyway. Nothing stood out for me

t - more sweet than bitter though still well balanced, a little spicy, tasty

m - not to thick though it looked it, carbonation was average

d - Tasty and went down easy, low ABV, reasonably light, very sessionable

Interesting that the previous reviewer mentioned it was highly carbonated, I didn't get that though I have with one of their bottled varieties...

poured a very dark brown with almost no head.

had a high carbonation level which is something im not a fan of.

had a nice earthy aroma which went with the taste.

taste had a very smokey woody flavor. almost as if you could taste the barrel it was aged in. dont think it was aged in a barrel though. this flavor stuck with me from start to finish.

the body was light which i think had to do with the high carbonation and low a/v.

all in all a decent beer. not their best brew and was not similar to most oktober fest beers i have tried
