Default Avery's The Kaiser

I've always liked this beer. It's an Imperial Oktoberfest (the only one I know of). I just got a bottle of the new batch and saw something on the label that was confusing. It states that it has an OG of 1.085 and boasts and ABV of 10.01%. Something doesn't add up to me. One of those numbers has to be a misprint right? Maybe I'm missing something. Anyone else find that hard to believe?

Add some simple sugar in there and it could get to 10% fast. I believe it.

1.085 OG and 1.009 FG = 10.1%. Not unheard of.

I've had it a couple of times and always enjoyed it...

Wouldn't the simple sugars affect the OG?

I just drank it two nights ago and it doesn't taste like it has an FG that low. Anyway, it doesn't really matter as long as it tastes good.

From talking to some of the staff at Avery, it would seem they mash all their beers at 149* and from their website, you'll notice they have lower-than-average FGs. They're also a fan of turbinado, which helps their big beers.
