Heavy Seas “Mutiny Fleet Prosit Imperial Oktoberfest” Review (#098)


Clipper City Brewing Co.
Heavy Seas
Mutiny Fleet Prosit! Imperial Oktoberfest
Baltimore, MD

From The Brewery:

Malt focused with five types of grain including Vienna and Munich malts – plus a secret extra malt that we use only in our Prosit! Balanced with 3 kinds of hops

ABV: 8%

Review:

Appearance: It poured lively into my tulip glass; it was a nice darker golden orange with a thin white head, that left a little bit of lacing.

Smell: Sweet toasty malts – biscuit and caramel – with a nice amount of citrus hops. Strong smelling.

Taste: Very parallel to the smell. big malt flavor of caramel and toasted biscuit. It has a nice lager crispness that is surprising for the ABV; very clean tasting with a drying sweetness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a low level of carbonation (a good thing to me)

Drinkability/Palitability: High. I have only had this one imperial Oktoberfest, so I do not have another in style to compare to it. The bomber went down very easy.

Notes: A good solid beer. This year was very good for the Oktoberfests and this one was pretty good. I would enjoy one of these a year to see how they evolve (not aged; fresh annually)
