Pours deep cola color. Head is thick and rich. Smells of caramel, vanilla, some fruit. Head tastes just as it smells. Brew has mocha hit you first with vanilla hanging on the pallet. Darn fine stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy brown in color with a large bubbled and short lasting head, this is not the most attractive beer. Its nose is vinous and fruity. Raisin and cherry flavors are brought out by a light sweetness and a hint of tartness. There is also a bit of a metallic note and the character which seems to have come from the barrel aging does not work well. It adds an stuffy oldness w/o any sophistication, like a bottle left on the shelf too long. It’s full bodied, sticky and heavy. I am into the fancied bottles this comes in but the beer is just not very good.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, licorice, dark fruit, plums, figs. Flavor is pleasantly roast with a good hint of dark fruit. Some licorice notes. The beer is chewy, but in a good way. Nice mouthfeel. Good beer.

Although it pops like champagne when you open it (watch for flying corks!) it doesn’t fizz like nobody’s business. It pours a deep, warm, opaque sable with a rather typical tan head that doesn’t stick around too long. Smoky aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple and pear with a hint of banana, and earthy and miso touches. Flavor has a malty core with subtle nutty, earthy, molasses, fruity, roast coffee and chocolate notes. It tastes like a good Belgian style ale blended with a stout, and the different aspects of these two styles marry well. Smooth, edgy texture has above-average body and leaves a nutty, earthy, smoky finish.

Very dark body with reddish highlights. There’s a very small head that is light brown in color. Nice, inviting aroma of coffee, cream, and spice. The palate is relatively light, and there’s a decent punch of carbonation. The flavor is excellent. It’s pretty sweet and smooth with just a little spice at the end. I can taste the coffee, but it’s more like a light and sweet coffee. The 9% ABV is not evident at all. This is a very easy drinking, tasty brew.

Bottle, poured into a snifter. Pours black with some ruby highlights. One finger foamy tan head which recedes leaving generous amounts of lace. Aroma is dark fruits with spicey notes. A bit of green tea or chai perhaps. Flavor is a mixed bag of chocolate, oak, vanilla and more dark fruit. Has an odd tang to it that I can’t put my finger on. Thinner palate than you might expect with fizzy carbonation. Kind of a sour finish, more of that tang I mentioned earlier. All in all, pretty good. Hats off to Sam Adams for putting this out.

Bottle pours a clear (when held to light) deep red/brown with a light brown long lasting head. Scent is dark fruit. Taste is same with a hint of pepper and chocolate.

Pours a dark brownish black color with a reddish head. Smells of plums and raisins with some yeast. Taste is great! Raisins and plums with more yeast!! Complete and interesting beer!

Good stuff. Pours dark dark brown with light foam. Thin body really hampers the mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and fruity with a tangy hop yeast finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
