Much thanks goes to Lee for sharing this bottle.

A: Medium brown, like maple syrup. No head, no sign of carbonation.

S: Sweet and malty, with aromas of Molasses, Raisin and brown bread.

T: Malty, smooth at first with tart cherry and molasses. Caramel and bread flavor follow. Alcohol finish.

M: Syrupy and thick in body. No carbonation. Lots of heat from the abv.

O: Overall good, although less than amazing. Pretty smooth considering the abv. Tasty but not necessarily outstanding, however an awesome experience to share with beer buddies.

Had a big Winter Party with this beer for Snobs United. I poured the 10th Anniversary bottle, but I also sampled a wee bit of the 2013 bottle.

Poured 3 ounces into a Tulip glass.

Clear Amber liquid with beautiful alcohol legs when swirled in the glass.
Not too thin and not too thick in the glass. Looks really good.

Nose is robust. Big sweetness, dark mulled fruits, oak and barrel character, leather, tannins, pepper and dark malts and of coarse alcohol.

Taste follows the nose really well with a very nice mouthfeel however it could have been fuller given the alcohol. Still quite an experience.

Has to be one of the best Sam Adams Beers that I'm aware of.

This one is a real treat if you like big boozers and you can find it!
