Bottle from sampler pack. Good smooth nose and sweeter malt initial taste. A bit of Carmel in there and some hops hiding as well. Smooth finish and decent aftertaste. A slightly above average octoberfest.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Liquide pétillant de couleur cuivre rougeoyant, limpide et mince, avec un nez de sucre d’orge, de céréales grillées et de baies. En bouche, c’est sucré mais pas trop, avec une finale langoureuse qui se termine sur une toute petite amertume. Des notes de prunes, de fraises et de sucre d’orge complètent le tableau. Très bien faite pour le style, elle allie saveurs justes, complexité intéressante, et haute buvabilité.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad for a Sam Adams. Malty, typical Marzen that is refreshing and not bitter at all. Good amber ale backbone with deep golden color and light sweetness. Good fall brew.

33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear brown/red colour with a white head that quickly disappears. Malty scent, some hay. Malty flavour without a heavy feeling. Faint bitterness. Easy to drink. Would buy again.

Only ever had Sam Adams Boston lager so I was expecting a much hoppier beer.... This on the other hand is completely different. Much darker in colour (amber) with a rich malty and cinnamon nose. Taste is again cinnamon and dark fruits with some dark malt. It has a lighter body than I expected and is quite easy to drink. Not a bad beer but if I were looking for a dark beer I probably would look for something with more depth and body. Overall tho, I would say Sam Adams has not let me down.

12 oz can, served on my flight from Salt Lake City to Amsterdam, so obviously I had to try it. Clear amber color. Big off white head. Aroma’s of caramel and bready malts, and red fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet, nutty. Light bodied, but not thin. Short finish, no new flavors.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Longhorn Steakhouse
Aroma was spicy.
Appearance was pleasantly amber.
Taste was, mildly, of Christmas spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.).
Palate was wet but left a slight bitterness on the tongue.
Took the waitress forever to bring it to me, but it was refreshingly tasty. Though pales in comparison to what i usually drink (dark lagers).
It did hit-the-spot, though...and nicely complimented my lunch.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Red color, tan head, some nice aromas are perceived such as caramel and nuts. The beer by itself has a medium body, with strong earthy flavor, not too sweet with just a hint of bitterness.
