On tap at the Dutch, pours a deep brown color, off white head with good retention. Scent of chocolate, roastiness, light bread. Taste has similar notes and leans sweet as expected. Mouth is light to medium bodied but becomes drying after a few. Over a tasty beer for this rainy dreary day.

No lacing with a one inch head. Heavy roasted/toast taste and smell. And maybe a slight taste of butterscotch.

Very dark brown, tan dissipating head. Aroma of bready malt with lots of cocoa, light roast, some cola. Flavor of bready malt with a little toffee sweetness, chocolate, light roast, a little raisin, a roasty/grainy finish dries it out. Medium-full bodied and easy-drinking.

12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best before June 2013. Black color. Light brown head, leaves good lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of a creamy texture. More dry in the finish. Medium body, decent chewiness. Chocolate, cream, light roasted malt. Good lighter bitter taste, little sweet. Solid sweet stout. Nice balance. Not too sweet, still a satisfying amount of roast and bitterness.

My first Sam Adams offering. Pour from bottle. Lovely dark brown with thin tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, soy. I taste sweet and salt...umami? Thin creamy texture, soft carbonation. Slightly off-putting finish..soy/smoke? A bit of a disappointment to be honest.

Smak och doft av malt, humle, kaffe, choklad. Rostade toner, rund och krämig med fin beska. Gott.

Pours a dark brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head and good lacing. Aroma is light soy and slight lactose. Taste is coffee and that typical lactose from a cream stout, but smooth and easy to drink. Pretty solid, but nothing special.
