3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a large creamy light brown head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing. The aroma was quite light of roasted dark chocolate malts, and earthy yeast with notes of coffee and caramel. It tasted very lightly sweet with a mild coffee undertone and had a hint of caramel at first then became mildly bitter with notes of chocolate and coffee at the end. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall an OK stout that was extremely drinkable.

Thin palate very light stout that is somewhat reminiscent of a brown ale. A bit strange mouth feel. It’s ok

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark body, medium to small creamy head. Aroma has sweet roast and something creamy indeed. Medium body, good carbonation. Sweet medium roasty taste with creamy notes and some light milk chocolate. Sweet finish with some coffee notes. A decent stout, everything is nicely done but it’s a bit generic - nothing really stands out to give this beer a memorable character.

A sweet aroma of malt and milk chocolate. The small beige creamy head has a long duration, the body is black. A quite dry and malty taste of coffee and chocolate. The body is light to medium strong, very creamy with a lively carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
En øl der er let sylig, med en kraftig ristet smag. Jeg synes den er "skarp" af en cream stout at være.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprised by this one. This has to be my favorite Sam Adams beer. Slightly lactose style smell with chocolate and malt. Pours opaque with a soapy tan head. Taste is sweet with a bitter that seems more like a dark chocolate bitter than a hops bitter. Dark chocolate and coffee taste with a slight vanilla/lactose addition. Smooth, medium to low carbonation. A bit thin/watery on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Very dark chestnut brown color. Small size, brown head, stays. Dusty chocolate cake, roasted malts, sweetish, faint supermarket gingerbread in aroma. Dark roasted dry chocolate cake, bit of mint (or more likely spicy hops), sweet and nuts in taste. Roasted malts and nuts in aftertaste. Nice hoppy tingle in my mouth. Reminds me an old home made fruit bread. Quite nice.

Dark brown with a ruby tinge, medium to small creamy tan head. Nose is roasty, some ash, hops, chocolate and coffee in the background. Flavor is mellow coffee, roast, malt, caramel, some mild hops in the semi-dry finish. Lingering roasty acidity. Some roast and ash in the retronasals. Nice balance, very easily drinkable.
