I turned back to my Sam Adams sampler pack and pulled out the Holiday Porter (after what I had last night after the game this was a good surprise.)
Out of the bottle the beer pours a very dark brown to almost black in color, reminding me of the Guinness Black I had earlier this year. The head that forms is an eye-pleasing tan that sticks around for quite some time. Lacing was good as well - the best I've seen in a while.
I really couldn't smell anything but the hops and malt and the same thing for the taste. Mouthfeel wasn't anything out of the ordinary, good or bad.
Overall, it was a very pleasing to the eyes and surprisingly good taste to the mouth for a full-bodied porter I will definitely partake more of in the coming days.
