3.73/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle.

Pours a very clean dark amber color, 2 finger head that dissipates down to a thin layer of bubbles and foam after a minute. This one makes some nice lacing too.

The aroma has a light sweetness to it. Hints of caramel and malts with a light hop aroma.

The taste is mainly malts. There is a nice spiciness to it as well which makes my tongue tingle a bit. I can detect very slight hints of a caramel like flavor as too. The hop flavor seems pretty light to me, but it is there. Semi bitter on the finish. Carbonation seems moderate, good mouthfeel. Drinkability is pretty good too.

Overall a pretty nice seasonal offering from Sam Adams, of the 4 this one has always been my favorite.
