Poured dark like a malt, but it wasn't as thick, more like a lager. (Go figure.)
Very light smell, smell of hops, malts, coffee, chocolate, and dark bread.
The taste was rather good. I expected less to be honest. Nice malty mix with caramel and coffee notes on the tounge. A very slight toasted finish with a clean finish. As it warms you can taste the hop notes a little too
It was a little too carbonated, which is why I reduced the mouthfeel one notch on this.
Overall this is a definite hit from the Sam Adams collection and you won't regret buying one. I'll buy one again. (I would like to try it on tap)
