3.5/5 rDev -6.4%
Pours a huge, frothy white head that has really good persistence. Spicy hop aroma. Crystal clear, copper color. Starts with a spicy, grainy hop flavor. Builds into a slightly toasted biscuit malt. Lingering hops begin to meld with the malt as the wood notes start to come through. Finish is wood and spicy hops.
This isn't too bad. It's and okay Oktoberfest, and the oak aging definitely helps make it more interesting, but it's still just okay.

-The J series. Oktoberfest aged in oak foudres.
A: Dense coppery-orange with a immense, feverish display of carbonation within. Small bready off white head with a short rate of hold recedes to a patchy covering with minor eye lash slashes of lace on the vessel.
S: Scent of caramelized oranges, moderate in strength, fresh and wet nature finishing out with a lightly caramelized bread crust. Slight to average in strength per style.
T: The flavor had a strong, oaky caramelized malting with semi-dried oranges and noble hopping. Buttered caramel bread sweetness.
M: Spritzy mouthful from the carbonation, very active, perhaps a bit to much so per style, oaky alcohol warmth on the inner cheeks and tonuge.
O: Overall a different approach, a bit high abv% wise per style, deeper speciality grain influence and oaky alcohol makes this a bit heavier to consume then your typical lighter drinking fair. The carbonation is also a bit zealous and over-active. Not a bad beer, some interesting attributes from the oaky alcohol, a bit outside the box.

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- This beer pours a clear caramel color with a thin meniscus of antique white head and a swirling carbonation of tiny bubbles.
S- The flinty dry malt aroma is clean and nicely lagered but there is a bit of a nougat smell in the finish with a soft green pungent hop note that grows as the beer opens.
T- The dry wet stones flavor soon gives way to a lightly toasted malt that is nicely lagered with a crisp pungent hop note in the finish. There is some sulfur taste that starts to come through in the after taste.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a full crisp fizz in the finish.
O- This beer has a nice smooth malt flavor but I would really like to see a bit more sweetess just to add character to the malt and cut some of the pungency of the hops.
