Interesting beer, very nice.
Chestnut color, small tan head.

Smoky malt, some caramel. A bit of spice.

Smoky caramel taste. Pumpkin pie spice. The flavors went well together.

Very malty, not like any Oktoberfest that I have tried.

A lot of fun to drink.

A - Poured crystal clear with a foamy white head.

S - Smelled of smoked grain and farmhouse funk.

T - Again with the smoke and just a hint of the funk. Ended with a sharp bitter bite.

M - Light body and crisp carbonation

D - Something about the slight saison funk and the slight smoky grain threw me off. Not my favorite Oxbow.

Sour, back end possesses a serious leather taste to me, serious leather taste!! But it's good, I appreciate it.... Far from a favorite though. Oxbow is a good brewing company
