Bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

A: Pours deep amber with a light tan head that fades and laces fairly well.

S: Roasted malt, a little dark fruit, and a touch of toffee sweetness.

T: Earthy, grainy, roasted malt, a little fruity, with a touch of toffee sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Quite crisp and drinkable.

O: Might not be the best or most authentic, but does just fine as a session brew at an equally inauthentic but fun Oktoberfest party.
