look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Poured into a pint glass.
Appearence is black non-transparent with a coffee colored thick heading.Which leaves rings all the way down the glass.
Nose is immediate with heavy chocolate malts also a slight hoppiness. I don't know how to explain it but smells fresh. If that means anything.
Taste is all chocolate malt with a bit of caramel and nice bite of hops in the end.Alcohol is very well hidden until you feel the burn in the belly.
Mouthfeel is very rich, creamy,and thick.Leaves your lips all stickey like (that's what she said)
Drinkability is good.I can't really see myself drinking a bunch but definitely until I get my fill.
Update: Year and 8 months later. Does seem to be a different beer now. Smooth, velvety and all of the flavors blend so smoothly.

2011 Vintage, poured into a pint glass
A- pours opaque pitch black color with a small creamy dark tan head that eventually reduces to a small layer floating on top, short lasting lace
S- deep, dark chocolate aroma that smells like a fresh fudge brownie, notes or carob & prune with some coffee on the finish
T- dark roasted chocolate up front gives way to a blast of dark fruit with notes of fig, raisin, and even some dark cherry juice, mid-palate continues sweet with brownie flavors and eventually gives a finish of caramel, butterscotch and day old coffee
M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, alcohol is hidden very well
O- this bottle was nearly three years old, and it is drinking wonderful. Alcohol is barely detectable and the chocolate and dark fruits have taken over, making it a sweet sipper. If you take the Sam Adams label off of this beer, I guarantee it would be rated higher
