A dark Belgian-style stout with notes of spice, coffee, chocolate & oak The 13th Hour Is The Witching Hour and a time when strange brews can occur With 13 ingredients, we combine the roasted chocolate and coffee notes of a stout with the complex spicy character of a Belgian-style ale aged in oak for a dark, robust, and bewitching brew.

Holy infected garbage, bros. This one poured very light and thin for a impy stout. It had a sour twang to it as well, leading me to believe it was infected. Pounded the entire 750ml in 1 minute 33 seconds. Hers the pics:




this beer is garbage

Nice funky and tart sort of stout with citrus, oak, spice, and cocoa, not a bad beer but too played up by Sam Adams.

Sampled from a tall corked bottle into a mini tulip glass at CarterFest 2013. It poured a deep mahogany colour with huge fluffy beige foam and lots of Belgian lace. Strong aromas and flavours of grains, toast, roasted malts, dark stone fruits, black pepper, clove, and other intense Belgian yeast aspects, Brett tartness. Barn-yardy in a good way. Somehow candy-sweet with a super dry finish. Medium body, lighter than most "Imperial Stouts" because of the high-attenuating multi-strain yeasts. Strong carbonation, crisp and well-rounded mouthfeel. Many of the familiar stout characteristics AND Belgian strong ale characteristics. Outrageously complex, the best of both worlds. Delicious, and probably one of my all-time favourite beers.

Black. Small, beige head. Aroma: Raisins, Chocolate. Flavor: Strong raisin, dark chocolate malt, spice, cherries, alcahol. Syrupy. Espresso Finish. This has a very strong flavor, even for a high gravity stout, in fact somewhat too much. Yet it doesn’t cover up the alcahol. It’s very good but not the most drinkable Sam I have had.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 7, 2013
750ml bottle. Clear dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, spicy esters, vanilla and slight vinegar. Flavor is cocoa, zesty spice, plum, dark fruit, alcohol and a light tartness. Medium body with a fairly thin mouth feel. Ok beer, seems kind of all over the place and the flavors clash a bit.

A great stout! Pours a syrupy black with a light brown head. Smells awesome, like chocolate and fruit. Taste is like chocolate covered raspberries, with a little bit of coffee. Very good! Had in the bottle (which looks awesome by the way). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
