Chocalatey, roasted flavor with a very smooth feel. Nice aroma and a decent dark brown color. Not the best stout, but still very good.

Nice reddish-brown color with flavors of coffee and chocolate found underneath a nice tan head. Medium body with sweetness that isnít overpowering, but well balanced with some bitterness and a pleasing aftertaste. If your tastes runs toward beers that are more sweeter than bitter, than you should certainly try this one.

If youíre looking for a beer to increase your manliness quotient, go slumming with the Budwieser or Miller crowd; after all, they do attract hot chicks with wet T-shirts. Oh, wait, those commercials donít reflect real life? I suppose the rest of usíll just drink beer because we like it.
Like most of the Samueal Adams beers, this is a top notch brew.
No, this is not Samuel Smithís Oatmeal Stout (my benchmark), but is a fine macro-microbrew none the less.
Not much in the aroma department, but has a decent head and a deep, rich color.
Has a good coffee, chocolate, creamy taste with a subtle roast undertone, but isnít the richest beer on the block. Has a reasonable palate, but the followup can get wierd sometimes. I blame this on the heathens in my area who would turn over truckloads of Bud Light for every Samuel Adams 6 that gets sold. A solid performer in the íeasy to find supermarket pseudo-microbrewí catagory. A very drinkable concoction, all in all.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 This beer rocks.
Very dark with a beautiful, tan head. The nose of a mocha cappacino and the creamy flavor of milk chocolate and coffee. A very well-balanced flavor with a crisp, dry finish. Not sweet. Hopped perfectly. Yum. Bartender! Draw me another.

This is a stout for people who donít particularly like stout. Itís not very sweet and itís on the thin side. Looks better than it drinks.
