3.23/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured a 22 oz bottle, dated 11227, into a JFF is my BFF novelty Pint Glass.

A: Poured a half fingered creamy head. The carbonation appears extremely active rising amazingly in its nicely colored amber body. A nice minimal head circles, but none of it laces on the glass.

S: Great smooth malts with some spices hitting the nose. A small alcohol smell is present, but definitely not coming in strong.

T: The alcohol taste is definitely in that taste, but more so on the swallow rather than on the first intake. Toffee is blended in oddly with these malts. Dark fruits make a strong presence and feels out of place in this Oktoberfest because they creep up and dominate this drink.

M: The carbonation is shockingly light with all of its bubble, but the body is moderate.

O: I would honestly like for them to mask the alcohol taste more because it's obvious that when this warms up it will carry a strong alcohol taste. I can't truly say this is a Oktoberfest because it's just so different for the style. I admit that this does carry a complex taste, but this is simply an example that more is not always better. With the alcohol hitting this is not the easy drinker that I look forward to in a Oktoberfest, it makes me want to treat it as a sipper.
Don't expect this to taste like a Oktoberfest. If anything this feels like a Doppelbock.
