A - Dark amber, almost brown color. Off-White creamy head that dissipates rather quickly leaving watery lacing on the glass.
S - A faint sweet caramel malt with a little bit of cinnamon. Not much of a true scent really present with this one.
T - Caramel and spicy up front which gives way to a dominate earthy hop taste. There's also cinnamon and ginger present towards the finish of the beer, but the true finish has a citrus flavor which becomes more noticeable as the beer begins to warm up.
M - Light to medium bodied with slight carbonation.
D - Pretty drinkable beer with only a 5.6% ABV. Although it does have a nice flavor, and the ABV isn't high. Due to the complexity of the flavor, I couldn't see myself drinking more than 2-3 of these in a sitting before I became sick of it.

Sampled tonight on 3/12/14 though I last had this on draught in January at a local bar * grill. From their seasonal 'Winter Sampler" (or comes in a 6-pack). Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pours a nice dark amber in color with about a half of a finger off-white head that settles down to a thing layer on top and sides. Lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of caramel malts with a few spices. The taste of the caramel malts comes right though with some toffee, cinnamon and nutmeg. Very tasty with perfect carbonation. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. One of the better Sam Adam's seasonals.
