This beer tastes like somebody stirred cocoa in a lager.
I hate writing those wordy tasting reports. At some point a beer is a beer and yeah you can endlessly dissect the overtones of malts, speculate about the hops, the temperature of the mash and use quirky adjectives but that is not me. About 50 words should be more than enough to describe a beer.

Sam Adams missed the target here. This was part of their winter seasonal twelve pack. Folks usually purchase it as a gift for beer drinkers. I would prefer the return of the Cranberry Lambic. The chocolate is prominent but the concoction is thin and fizzy like a soda. Man did they screw it up.
A: dark like a porter but if you blinked the head was gone - zero lacing.
S: some chocolate but no sensuality.
T: Imagine a teaspoon of Hershey's syrup in a quart of water.
M: Imagine the water without the Hershey's syrup.
O: Bad execution - bad beer experience. Tastes like something Bud would try to sell.
