Bob's 47 Oktoberfest - Boulevard Brewing, Kansas City

Boulevard Bob's 47

Ah, Bob's 47... I haven't had one of these in probably four years. One fall I mistakenly picked up a six pack of Bob's 47 instead of the Bully Porter and it put me in a bit of a bad mood. I didn't think very highly of the Bob's 47 at the time and I pretty much wrote if off as a bad beer. After a couple of Boulevard Brewery tours and hearing the story behind the Bob's 47 seasonal I thought it deserved another try. For those of you who weren't aware, the name for Bob's 47 comes from a master brewer's graduate recipe. Bob Werkowtich, the master brewer, graduated from the US Brewer's Academy in 1947 and this was his final project. I thought it was a pretty cool story. The history alone was enough to convince me to pick up more of a beer I'd already had, and disliked... So, was this beer any better the second time around?
