Poured into a pint glass.

Pours very dark, almost black, with hints of almost ruby red in the light. Thick fluffy off white head, with good lacing. Pretty beer!

Aroma was pleasant. Chocolaty malt, hint of coffee.

Taste was a great thick, malty rich flavor. Hints of coffee as well. The finish is very pleasant, and warm.

A smooth, sort of thick mouthfeel. A nice, warm feel to this beer.

A very nice, drinkable beer, one of the best from Sam Adams. Loved it!

3.64/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (best by April, I'm assuming 2014)

A: A nice dark amber brown body with a minuscule slightly brownish head that dissipates pretty fast. No lacing.

S: Slight roast with just some lightly sweet malts.

T: A lot better than I was expecting. Very light and drinkable. Nice roast on the aftertaste. Just a very general and mild Porter. Good level of sweetness.

M: Slight massage from a parade of bubbles.

O: Got it from a party and it is decent. I didn't even know about this beer from Samuel Adams. Another good porter. Not bad, well done.
