Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost completely opaque against light, very thin white head. Rich, sweet scent of chocolate and toffee. Light carbonation with a smooth feel. Sweet tastes like toffee and dark fruits without being too sweet, distinct caramel undertones, taste becomes richer as the beer starts to warm. Very good beer, sweet and rich without being overpowering or overly bitter. One of the better beers Ive had recently. Ill definitely be having this again.

12oz bottle shared. Pours reddish brown color with off white head. The aroma is quite sweet with malt. The body is medium. The flavor is is very breads sweet with caramel booze backbone. You can feel the warmth of the alcohol. This leaves like an oily lacing on the glass. Not bad but not great.

355ml bottle. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, balanced carbonation. Malty taste, chocolate, cocoa, fudge, butterscotch, hops, diacetyl. Quite alright, but a bit sticky. (2009-03-06)

From first sip, taste buds wait for alcohol taste to hit. That feeling lasts through sip, but above-average beer taste follows. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear mahogany with a large beige cream head. Smells super malty, like caramel, with a distinct hint of fruit. Taste big sweet, hints of toffee and fruit, with almost no bitterness. Full-bodied with a slick texture, and soft mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Imperial Series Double Bock finishes with a smooth, almost sticky feeling.

To begin, Im a lover of ales, hoppy IPAs and spicy wits. That said. This is probably one of the best bottles of beer Ive ever sat down and enjoyed. Dark, creamy, malty, sweet, fruity, rich, the healthy ABV sneaks up and reminds you its a winter warmer not a tailgater, but soooo smooth for a serious winter beer. Made me want to go out and buy a Heath bar. So rich and decadent, theres a good reason its sold in 4 packs

Very dark appearance amber color with minimal tan head. Very strong malty aroma. Very smooth taste that is complex. Very malty and roasty with a strong roasty finish that lingers. Another excellent different beer from a great brewery.

This is a bottle I have been sitting for maybe 3 years now so well see how it is with that in mind. It pours a murky brown color with just a slight beige head. As the bottle indicates this is very malty and gives off a sweet grain scent. The taste is kind of has a barrel aged, chocolate thing going on. Overall it is very sweet and drinkable. Definitely taste a little of the bitterness from the 9.5% ABV but it is very subtle. Very interesting, next time I would probably just drink this new instead of aging it by accident though.
