A-black with a nice dark tan head
S-dark roasted grains. just a faint hint of mocha. smells more like an autumn stout due to the cloves. there's definitely a slight hint of gingerbread. if you gave this stout to someone blindfolded, they might tell you its a pumpkin ale due to the autumn spices. decent strength. smells good.
T-comes in with a deep taste of dark semi-sweet chocolates. has a really decent dark roasted flavor to it, with a great large amount of sweetness to it. the after-taste is mostly bitter, some good dark roasted mocha flavors, and just a hint of gingerbread. this really tastes a lot like a Russian Imperial Stout with its bitterness.
M-thick and syrupy with a sticky finish
O-its a holiday stout from Sam Adams. don't expect an epic concoction of flavors. to be satisfied, just expect an average christmas flavored ale. its a bit too artificial tasting to be a great imperial stout. minus the gingerbread and autumn spices, it's still just a tad bit too sweet. definitely drinks like a 9% beer with its thickness. I suggest to drink this with a friend. few people here will want the whole bottle of this. only get this if you're very curious, but don't get your hopes up.
