From a bomber with no date into my Sam Adams glass (thanks, guys!). This one is engine oil black with a thin, dark brown cap that fades at a moderate pace to a thin ring. Very nice looking dark brew. Nose is sweet to very sweet, with lots of chocolate/smoky notes. Toasted malt and burnt toast, powdery cocoa, hints of coffee. In the mouth, it’s not nearly as sweet as the nose advertises. There’s a definite burnt character, and flavor is surprisingly dry compared to nose. Hints of mild coffee with dark chocolate bitterness. Firm but not overwhelming; enjoyable. Mouth is a bit thin and watery, bubbly, and quenching. Overall, looks and smells great, though a bit underwhelming taste. Overall good for style. Tasty and quenching, traditional. Not an “extreme” beer by any stretch, but good overall.
