3.64/5  rDev -2.2%

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.
