A - Poured a deep copper color with lots of carbonation and a thick foamy head. Head left some lacing on the glass, but it all but disappeared later on.

S - Picking up some huge toasty bready scents. Smells like warm toast with honey drizzled over it. Very cozy feel from the smell, definitely getting an Oktoberfest vibe from it so far.

T - Enormous caramel and toffee flavors. The things I smelled are almost impossible to pick up on with all of this flavor. Definitely a good tasting beer, but I wish it tasted more like the warm bread and honey it has on the nose.

M - Very odd mouthfeel. It's thin, but very thick at the same time too. Leaves me intrigued.

O - Not bad for their first Oktoberfest style beer. It can only get better with time. A decent beer overall with a good drinkability despite being so damn heavy and sweet. Can't wait to see what they do next year.

I've had this beer a few times since it was first released in August. Very excited to try it out and, like other SBC beers, it's been marketed decently well.

A: very dark, basically black in appearance. not what i expected from a Marzen (although I am pretty new to the craft scene). decently thick foam, almost a quarter inch of it was retained throughout.

S: very bready and toasty.

T: heavy toffee flavor. I get a strong coffee aftertaste with each sip I take.

M: not as heavy as some other oktoberfests i've had. goes down fairly easily.

O: overall, I would say the SBC Oktoberfest is much different from basically every other Marzen/Oktoberfest I've ever had. It almost seems to be a different style all together. Between the blackish color and coffee aftertaste, it stands out among other O-fests I've had. Not a bad beer by any means, although not my favorite in this style. Definitely a nice change up from the usual, though.
