3.6/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: A semi-translucent dark amber color. Head is so-so.
Smell: Spices and malt intermingle, but overall aroma is not very strong.
Taste: Sweetly malty and mildly spicy. Its rather undiscernable what specific spices are at play. I detect more winter/spice characteristics than bock characteristics.
Mouthfeel: Relatively thin-bodied. Highly carbonated, as are most Sam Adams beers. Quite smooth if not for the carbonation.
Drinkability: This beer's drinkability score is a notch higher than its other scores because the alcohol is completely hidden and it goes down so easily.
Notes: My perception of this beer is about the same as my perception of most Sam Adams beers: not exactly a stellar brew, yet never a bad choice either. Not my favorite winter seasonal or my favorite Sam Adams beer, but a decent beer nevertheless.
Serving type: bottle
