UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 Very delicious. Has beautiful notes of barley, and wonderfull hops.(Goldings I think) erling1000 (718) - - JUN 12, 2015
A coffee colored black lager with low head. Aroma is caramel, malt, bisquit?, coffee. Taste is bitter. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Nuts, chocolate, lots of sweet malt, very mild, yet thick. No bitterness. Buttery. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. This is the best Sam Adams beer I’ve ever had and one of my all-time favorite beers, bar none. It even has some complexity with hints of roast and slight tartness. Amazingly good.

A creamy chocolate flavored Lager, that in my opinion, is one of their best efforts. jerrykurl (40) - California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Pours deep brown with an off white head. Smells lightly of malt and even lighter of hops. Light mouthfeel with roast flavors and hops. Finishes clean and balanced.

Right now, this is my favorite beer. Dark pour, thick head and bursting with chocolate flavor. Just a fine beer all around. teebeer (24) - Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2007
Great tasting dark lager. Has definate chocolate overtones with a nice, roasted malt flavor. Looks great in a glass (like coffe) Very easy to drink. acmoore4 (2) - USA - JAN 11, 2008 does not count
This beer may very well be my personal favorite at the moment. I got it in a variety pack and haven’t stopped searching it out since. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body is dark black in color and very nearly opaque with some ruby red highlights along the sides of the glass. There is some visible carbonation near the sides of the glass as well. On top sits a thick tan head with very good retention. It makes some good lace rings on the glass as I drink.
Smell: The aroma is sweet and bready with some mild hints of smoke and burnt sugar.
Taste/Mouth Feel: There is sweet buttery toffee and light caramel notes up front. This gives way to a robust espresso character with a light dusting of bittersweet chocolate. It finishes with some mild hop bitterness and dryness. The palate is medium bodied with a smooth texture and mild yet active carbonation.
Notes: Another solid beer from Samuel Adams!

Absolutely delicious. A very smooth dark pour with a soda-like head. Strong tastes of coffee and chocolate with a smooth, delightful ending. The best beer I’ve had from Sammy Adams.
