3.66/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Jet black in color with an inch thick tightly packed khaki colored head. Impenetrable to light. Good head retention. Aroma of dark roasted barley,coffee, and chocolate. Bitter taste of dark roasted barley blends well with pine like hops. There's a bit of sweetness that comes out in that is similar to a mocha type of taste that comes out in the back of the palate. The mouth is creamy and slightly oily.

Beautiful dark body pitch black, light tan head looks great in my glass. Big light cocoa colored head flowing full on cloud texture, with light speckled lacing left behind. Aroma has some caramel notes, mild dark chocolate notes, hint of coffee accents. Flavor creamy dark chocolate, hint of butterscotch with dark fruit notes...plum and raisin finish. Dry finish dark almost charcoal dark roasted malt character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, dry finish a bit high on carbonation. Overall, I'm liking it but not as much as my initial gut number score.

12oz bottle, poured into snifter

A- pours pitch black in color with a small creamy khaki-colred head that reduces to a f ilm floating on top, leaving some lacing behind

S- smoky and roasted malt aroma with notes of hickory, charcoal & roasted walnut. Assertive coffee aroma gives some fruit berry-like notes. It closes out with some hoppy notes of citrus rind, pine needle and fresh cut grass

T- creamy roasted chocolate malt gives flavors of cocoa, coffee, campfire ash and toasted bread crust. Mid palate- becomes immediately dry, as citrus hop notes provide a tart bite, followed by piney hops. Fruity finish with more smoky malt on a dry linger

M- medium body with medium-low carbonation leads to a creamy-chewy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, high drinkability

O- assertive hop notes give this a bit of a twist from your standard stout. Overall quite enjoyable

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a thin light brown head with decent retention and light lacing. Nice aroma of dark toasted malt, vanilla, hints of chocolate and lactose. Flavor is sweet dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of vanilla and coffee. An interesting dark molasses flavor develops in the finish which is dominated by dark sweet malt and a hint of hop bitterness. Nice creamy body. A nicely balanced and flavorful stout. I don't know if oats were used in this, but the body and flavor are positively reminiscent of oatmeal stouts. Nicely done. I enjoy this series every year.

I picked up a bottle of Samuel Adams American Stout from this years Longshot six pack last week at The Lager Mill. I always try and check out each years Longshot winners and I'm interested to see how this American Stout turns out, so lets see how it goes. 2014 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks nice and in typical Longshot fashion it's got the face of the winner on it. It poured a very dark brown color that was pretty much black and it didn't let any light come through with two and a half fingers worth of mocha colored head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some patchy lacing behind. I thought this was a very nice looking American Stout, I have no complaints at all.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness that bordered on the higher amount of sweetness and it was followed by the malts being the first to show up and they impart some nice dark roasted malt aromas along with some sweet malts, coffee and chocolate coming through with the mixture of the coffee and chocolate aromas seeming to stick out the most. Up next comes the hops which are a little noticeable and they impart an earthy hop aroma with some light piney hop aromas showing up in the background. This beer had a pretty good aroma, I have no complaints.

T- The taste seems to be pretty similar to the aroma and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness followed by the malts still being the first to show up and they impart those same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time theirs a slightly grainy aspect showing up and the coffee and chocolate aspect still sticks out the most. On the finish comes the hops which show up just as much as they did in the aroma and they impart the same earthy hop aspect along with a very light amount of medium bitterness followed by slightly grainy, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee like aftertaste that lingers for a little.bit. This was a pretty nice tasting American Stout, I have no complaints.

M- Smooth, a little crisp, slightly sticky, on the slightly thicker side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel was pretty nice and it worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and I thought it was a very solid example of a American Stout, it had every aspect that I look for in the style and I thought it had some nice balance between the roasted malts and the earthy hops. This beer had good drinkability, it was smooth, a little crisp, slightly sticky, not too filling and the taste did a nice job at holding my attention, I could drink a couple of these without getting bored with it and I liked that it wasn't too filling. I think this beer would be nice anytime of the year. What I like the most about this beer was the appearance and aroma, I had no complaints about both of them, they were both good. What I liked the least about this beer was the grainy aspect I think if that wasn't there the taste would get a solid 4. I would buy this beer again if they released it on it's own since it's one Solid American Stout and I would recommend it to any stout drinkers for the same reason. All in all I was pretty happy with this beer, it's just what I have come to expect from a good example of the style. It isn't my favorite American Stout, but it's still very solid. Good job Russ, this was a very solid American Stout that I enjoyed drinking, keep up the good work.

This is a substantial contribution to the "Longshot" series by Samuel Adams, a series that, for me, has been very hit or miss (more miss). This one looks like a serious stout from the start: pitch-black, dark-tan head, with some beautiful lacing. The one area that is disappointing is the smell: there are some faint pine and liquorice notes, very limited chocolate and coffee smells, malt. The taste is delicious: a very well-rounded flavor of dark, toasted chocolate nibs; espresso;and tart pine. I also picked up some vanilla, orange oil, and some smoke. There's a hoppiness to it as well, which I kind of enjoyed. This one is sweet from the start, and malty, but it's not overly tacky and sticky sweet. It's velvety, though perhaps a bit too much carbonation. It doesn't finish dry, as some stouts can do. 7.2 ABV, but no trace of alcohol. I would enjoy a six-pack of this one, maybe the best one in the series.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours nearly pitch-black, with faint garnet highlights when held up to light. The latte-colored head is fairly tall and very densely frothy. Lots of fine, even lacing sticks to the glass as the head gradually fades.

S: Dark fruit (overripe plums?) and dark chocolate notes are up front in the nose. Additional notes of carbonized sugar, leather, and charcoal are also detectable. Some leafy, gently piney hop notes lurk in the background.

T: Medium sweetness initially - I'm actually getting a bit of a burnt marshmallow vibe here. Dark fruit is the most prominent flavor, with some roasty dark chocolate and weak coffee notes. A bit of mineral/charcoal character. Hop bitterness is moderate, with leafy and sweetish pine (think blue spruce) flavors.

M: This may be the best feature of this beer. Relatively full-bodied, but almost velvety smooth, with nearly the perfect amount of carbonation adding a pleasant touch of creaminess.

O: This is a nice stout from the Longshot series. Many of those beers (this year and in years past) are offbeat and/or extreme styles, but this is a good example of a more-or-less by-the-numbers beer.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a very dark brown/almost black color with a creamy, frothy looking dark tan head that is good solid inch thick when first poured. Settles to a nice surface coating about 1/6 of an inch thick after sitting for about 5 minutes after having first been poured. Very nice lacing here too. Aromas of grainy malt and oats along with slightly roasted coffee. vanilla and chocolate. Has a nice, somewhat sweet, malt and oat presence upfront that gives way to slightly roasted black coffee with a hint of bitterness that gives way to some subtle vanilla and chocolate notes. Rounded out with a slight touch of hops. Has a slightly crisp, mainly smooth, creamy, and frothy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. A lot of the aspects of the mouthfeel remind me of a milk shake, and that's good thing here! Has a slightly dry aftertaste. This is dangerously drinkable for the 7.2% ABV this beer boasts, as it is well masked indeed. Excellent drinkability. One of the best beers that the Longshot series has produced yet! Certainly worth a try. A pity this one, like all the other beers in the Longshot series, will only be brewed by The Boston Beer Company once.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Espresso coffee bean black, mocha colored head that retains a thick film with decent bands of lacing.

Aroma: A blend of oatmeal, chocolate, coffee, and maybe a hint of black licorice.

Taste: Excellent combination if the aroma profile on the taste. Dark chocolate, hearty oatmeal flakes, bitter coffee, and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and dry.

Overall: Very impressed with this compared to the others on the Long Shot sixer. This is a quality stout with all the right flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nice dark colored creamy rich thick 1+ finger head that sticks around for a while, nice lacing when it eventually starts to fade, just about pitch black beer, and even has some decent legs on the sides.

Nose brings nice roasty aroma, chocolate more like powdered cocoa and a little creamy milk chocolate, some coffee comes through with the roast, touch of smoke as well, a mild fluffy nougat and a creamy aroma. Slight touch of a piney hop note.

Taste starts with the smoke, a mild smoked malt with smoked cheese like character, into roasted malt, a nice roast with some nutty coffee, a little earthy and fair bitterness with all that. Hops bring a nice mild pine and faint hint of citrus rind, mild to fair bitterness, a little stouty. Also in there is a little nougat note, as well as a little creamy chocolate, mild dusty cocoa and burnt coffee, with a bit more smokey note on the back end. Finish is a bit dier, a little lactose like dry finish with more milk chocolate, bit more coffee and roast, hint smoke too, a touch of a ctirus like hop note.

Mouth is me to a bit fuller bod, creamy, nice carb.

Overall not bad, decent malt profile, nice carbonation and slight creamy feel with a little lactose like dry finish, wish the hops came through a bit more though. Drinkable and pretty tasty, but nothing too special either.

3.75/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

APPEARANCE: A handsomely dark brown brew with a tan light brown head that retains nicely and laces the pint well. Good clarity, and swirls in the glass bring the head right back. Looks like a quality stout.

SMELL: Dark roasted malts, coffee, and anise are apparent in the nose. Pleasantly malty with a lot of char and roast.

TASTE: A nice robust stout with a meaty, smokey flavor that was in the nose. More smokey than expected, but not a detractor. Rich malts lending vanilla and chocoalte notes, some moderate leafy bitterness, which is from the slightly piney cascade hops going to work. Some alcohol is noticeable but its kept in check with the char.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied and creamy feel, with a medium carbonation level. Smoke flavor lingers in the aftertaste with coffee and dark fruits around the edges.

OVERALL: This is a pretty good American Stout here, certainly worthy of being a Sam Adams Long Shot winner. Would pair very nicely with BBQ dishes or even some chocolate desserts

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a smallish tan head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of roast, chocolate, molasses, caramel, dark fruit, and earthy hops. The flavor is sweet with lots of sugary molasses, light prunes and figs with some caramel brown sugar and chocolate. Thick and sweet mouthfeel with a light to moderate level of carbonation. This was the best beer in the sixer but was kind of pedestrian and felt a little unattenuated.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

High levels of roast set the tone for the Sam Adams Longshot stout. Its classic dry body and assertive hop character also gives the dark ale an Americanized flare.

The American Stout pours like dark-roast coffee. Dark brown and pushing the lightlessness of black through its center. Above, a froth mocha lather builds- somewhat sticky in the way it clings to the glass. Opaque throughout, the stout seems clear with its onyx-like sheen.

Roasty affirmations continue as the nose picks up on the unmistakable coffee tones. Backed with robust notes of dark chocolate, roasted walnut, earthen chicory and tepid malt starch, a creamy but strong coffee taste is promised. Heading into taste, its hoppy side shows as sharp grapefruit, torn pine needles and an overall grassy whiff captivate the nose.

And as that creamy roast piles onto the tongue, it carries a dry and malty tone- strong coffee, cocoa, and smoldering embers come to mind with light ash and burnt toast. Underneath, the roast flavors are propped up with dry molasses flavor and a fast-fleeting sweetness. The middle opens up with citrus peels of grapefruit and oranges before finishing with a resinous bitterness that links up with coffee-type bitterness with echoes of pine and grassy taste resonating onward.

Medium-full on the palate; only its stronghold of carbonation keeps the sweetness feeling creamy and somewhat lush. But once the carbonation dissolves, it carries away those early malt sweetnesses and dives head first into an acrid dry texture with powdery roast, seeming ashy late Its warmth is laced with light peppercorn and mild roast-derived astringency.

Where I keep looking for some stand-out character, instead- its standout character resides in its clean and dry roasted character- so precise that some of the roasted barley's rougher sides are exposed.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 09/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, molasses, light char, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, molasses, dark bread, light char, light vanilla, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, toast, molasses, dark bread, light char, light vanilla, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, creamy, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice American stout style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Enjoy before 9/2014.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and slight soy sauce flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly simple but tasty.

I picked this up in the mixed sixpack, enjoyed in a stout glass chilled.

The color is black with opaque clarity and thick beige cream with very fine bead webbing of lace sticks. The smell is light with woody and slight roasted coffee with mild caramel scent and gentle earthy yeast and dry wheat-like toast with an almost buckwheat biscuit smell. The feel is decent with nice malt body and moderate carbonation with low sweetness and mild bitterness alcohol is mild with semi-dry finish.

The flavor has a light roasted malt flavor with subtle yeast and mild caramel malt with some dry earthen qualities of coffee and subtle pine in the hop flavor with alcohol low in the flavor with mild toasted character with a slight creaminess from the yeast throughout. Overall this is a pretty good stout, not great but pretty drinkable as far as the style goes.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a near pitch black with 2+ fingers of creamy tannish brown head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves chunks of lacing down the glass

S: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, and a hint of dark fruits all come through nicely

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malts and semi-sweet dark chocolate and then goes into some coffee and espresso notes as well as anise and dark fruits. Finishes with a touch of the anise and more coffee

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A pretty straight-forward stout with plenty of umph. Definitely full-flavored and expressive in both the nose and taste, but it still remains quite drinkable. Definitely a winner out of the homebrew contest

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours an opaque onyx with a billowing, frothy, mocha head that lingers.

Roast malt is subtle in comparison to the sweet chocolate notes that dominate the aroma. Citrus becomes evident later, along with tobacco and tar.

Flavor reveals an interesting juxtaposition of hop and malt character. The first taste is meaty, almost. Very savory. Notes of roast malt, dark chocolate, and coffee grounds contrast with underpinnings of lemony sourness. Earthy tar and nutty notes take over mid palate, finishing slightly bitter, lightly charred, and almost peppery.

Body is slightly thick, very creamy and smooth, with light carbonation, and a hint of alcohol warmth.

Better than I expected. The malt backbone is nice and somewhat complex, and the finish is not overly bitter. The sharp citrus contrasts very well, cutting through the malt richness and adding more complexity.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a black color. The head is two fingers high, lighter tan in shade, with lowish retention (I can see the head fading away as I type this). However, there are nice rings of lacing left behind.

S: There's a really nice yet well defined brown sugar coming out of my glass. I'm also getting notes of chocolate and graham cracker. If I really concentrate, I can even pick up some flowery hops. A bit one note, but that one note is damn good.

T: Actually, the flavor follows the nose a bit more than I expected. I'm initially picking up a gentle, flowery hop note to start, and it's well balanced within the brown sugar midtaste. There are some coffee flavors hidden around. As it warms up, it becomes decently roasty on the back end. I have to say, there's a reasonable amount of depth to this one.

M: This has a nice feel: it feels full bodied, creamy, and soft. On the other hand, it's not really dry enough. I think it lingers too sweetly on the finish, reducing the drinkability somewhat. Carbonation is fairly low - that must be it.

O: About what I expected - solidly tasty, but not a world beater. It was much better than the last Longshot beer I had, at least.

Pours thick and dark. Looks very black. Great head retention. Dark shades of foam. Darkness all around. Lacing coats the glass wall like paint. A beaut.

Roasty and semi-sweet. A tandem of coffee-ish malts, heavy kilning, cream stout easiness, and seemingly English hops. The aroma doesn't want to open up too bright. Keeps things dark and somewhat mild.

A fat, roasty stout, if I could ever call one. Coffee-like roast bitterness, subdued creaminess for relief, some dark fruitiness, carob powder, light licorice, some vanilla, and some throaty booze. Really, it's crafted like an impy lite. Has an aggressive approach, but the flavors are all locked into good places.

Super-chewy and gluggy thick. Has a good amount of lippy stickage. You won't find a meatier body on an American Stout like this baby has. The mouthfeel is dripping in maltose and oats. Even the carbonation is a positive attribute with its coarse popping and blending dissolution.

A beer of nutritional sustenance. It will really fill the hungry void on a warm summer night. Here's to (practically) eating beer!

Poured into a 16 oz snifter. Pours a slick black with a two inch brown head, that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is grainy oats, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, molasses, and toffee.

Taste follows the nose beautifully, maybe a little roastier than the nose would have you think, really nice.

Body is medium, plenty of carbonation, a smidge dry as it should be, and drinks easy, but appears larger than 7.2%.

Overall this is really nice, well done!

This was excellent. Big, malty smell and taste of chocolate and coffee. This is my ideal stout. It was thick, and left a silky film on my tongue. It's surprising that it's just 7.2% ABV. I love it. So delicious. I wish this guy finds an outlet to get this released on a normal basis.

Part of the 2013 Samuel Adams LongShot 6-Pack - $9.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with a medium-sized, mocha-toned head.

Smell: This LongShot winner presents chocolate and roast (very slightly charred) with minor supporting toasted bread and caramel notes. Some fruitiness of the citrusy American hops and a few, stray dark fruit esters.

Taste: The sweet, smooth taste of roasted barley, some underlying toast and caramel elements. Has a thin smokey, charred hint. Slight dark fruit. Citrus and just a little bit of pine showing from the hops. Medium bitterness. Still some remaining sweetness for the roasty finish with some smooth creaminess.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, satisfying stout.

This is a nice stout. I think it finishes a bit too hoppy for my tastes, though. As the evening went on I began to wonder what really is the difference between some American stouts and black IPAs. This morning I decided, however, that I was giving too much attention to the hops.
