A - amber body, ivory head slowly fades to a foam
S - earthy, spicy, caramel, toffee, yeast, faint oak and vanilla
T - more oaky flavor, caramel, toffee, toasted grain, earthy spicy hops, vanilla, boozier than the usual märzen
M - full body, creamy, finishes semi dry
O - nice changeup on a classic style with the oak foudre aging and the amped up abv. I'll usually pick up a bottle or 2 of this from my local brewery for Oktoberfest just for its uniqueness.

Nothing wrong with this brew, nor was there anything really exceptional about it.

Sort of what I would expect from an Oktoberfest lite. Appearance and smell were pretty normal, taste and mouthfeel a bit light.

Not something I would order again, but fans of lite beers might like it.

Serving type: on-tap

I went out to dinner at Chef Amaury's 33 West restaurant in Aurora, IL and they had this on the menu, so I ordered one. 12oz brown bottle served in a pint glass.

The beer poured a clear amber/red color with a ½-finger of white head that lasted a few minutes and left moderate lacing.

Toasted malt and caramel smell along with a whiff of oak barrel.

Toasted malt and caramel flavor with a low but noticeable hop bitterness, which is a bit unusual in an Okroberfest. There is also an oak barrel taste along with some spicy alcohol.

Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is also a bit of warming alcohol in the swallow.

This is not your typical sweet Oktoberfest, but it's still good and definitely worth a try.
