The aroma is sweet and toasted with chocolate, molasses, and a touch of grass. The appearance is brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of coffee and vanilla. The palate is smooth but then. Overall this is a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: dark brown with reddish brown edges, short fizzy tan head quickly shrinking, very minimal lacing. Aroma: wood, sour cherry, prune juice, a slight acidic vinegar tang, maybe a bit of chocolate. Taste: sour-ish cherries and sweet tart candies, followed by yeasty spice, a bit of molasses and vanilla, with a hint of chocolate. Finish: a bit puckering, with lingering sweet/tart/acidic flavors of cherry and a hint of chocolate and wood. Notes: Tastes like someone mixed 50% Rodenbach Grand Cru with 25% Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout and 25% Breckenridge Vanilla Porter. Interesting, but not awesome.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma- some funk, slight milk chocolate, roasted notes, vanilla, caramel, toffee
Appearance- almost black with a rather large, creamy white head
Taste- slight tartness upfront followed by some vanilla and oak, a touch of chocolate and roasted notes, sweet/tart finish of cherry juice
Palate- fair amount of mouthfeel on this one, creamy
Overall- Not what I was expecting. Almost drank like a sour stout that had lost a lot of its punch. Out of balance and not very drinkable.

Gambled some good money on Samuel Adams to see what they are up to with their Barrel Room Collection. Thirteenth hour is an interesting brew, but confusing on the palate as well. This ale has too much going in the flavor department--not sure what my taste buds are supposed to be paying attention to! Figs and fruit cake, with heavy yeasty overtones. Coffee, no / Chocolate, not really. Just doesn’t add up to its billing. Glad I tried it, but not worth a premium price.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a snifter. Oily black appearance with some ruby highlights and a fizzy, quickly fading brown head. Aroma is alcohol and Belgian yeast with some dark fruit, chocolate, and a touch of oak and vanilla. Flavor is very similar with Belgian notes up front, dark fruit, some chocolate and coffee, and some vanilla/oak notes towards the finish. Mouthfeel is thinner and oily, but the alcohol makes this seem more full bodied. Although this beer may not be what is expected of the style, it does have some complex flavors and is an interesting brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown with 1-finger tan head. Alcohol is evident in the nose and has a bit of a burn going down, which I liked. Not as thick in the mouth that I’ve come to expect from Imperial Stouts, but the flavor profile was decent. A very interesting spicee blend for a stout.
