|Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter
This dark colored brew opens with strong notes of roasted malt within a
hop background. A light sweetness soon emerges as espresso and
chocolate notes engulf the emerging smoke flavors toasted malts. Fairly
basic flavors without much nuance but still a satisfying, well made brew.
Overall rating: good.
|Coney Island Freaktoberfest
Surprises with its light red hue and pink head. The nose brings
light cherry, faint hops, and a general earthiness. First sip
brings notes of grain, toast, and alcohol which is unusual
considering the brew is only 6.6%. Some caramel and syrupy
sweetness on mid sip that leads to a fairly dry, alcohol tainted
finish. This is a lager best used as a Halloween gimmick.
Overall Rating - below average
|Flying Fish Oktoberfish
A mild nose bring a blend of malt with citrus
hops, grains and bread. A smooth mildly
malty flavor with wheat grains, lemon citrus
hops instantly appears with notes of sweet
yeast. Carmel and yeast appear at the
finish to compliment the sweet malt. A bit
lighter than a true marzen but a solid brew.
Overall rating - above average
