This beer is damn delicious... let's get to it-

This beer has a beautifully dark amber color. I was a bit surprised that it didn't have much of a head.

Unfortunately I have somewhat of a stuffy nose, however I do smell a sweeter beer.

Oh man, this beer quite delicious. This tastes like a full bodied beer. Sweet to the taste with a hoppy finish. It's the beer you drink when it starts getting colder.

I'm allowing myself to wander... this beer makes me feel sexual for some reason. This beer has an ok amount of carbonation, but it would be nice if it was a tiny bit more carbonated.

Overall, I would say that if you're tired of drinking piss beer, this seasonal beer is something to think about. Eat fall-related shit when you're drinking this beer. I would suggest monkey bread (look it up). I wish they didn't make this beer with as many hops, because that leads to a sort of bitter taste. Anyway, if you're looking to make love to your woman on a very cold night, I would suggest having a liter of Samuel Adams Octoberfest in your mug.

You can tell it's an "Octoberfest" style beer, but wow it tastes very watery to me.
