A - Very dark brown with a large mocha head. Ample clump of lacing.
S - Gamey meats, slightly smoked oak, brown sugar, raisins, soy sauce and bourbon.
T - Initially, soy sauce, oak and bourbon. Hint of gamey meat. Aftertaste is faint - lingering soy sauce and mild campfire.
M - Smooth, thick, pretty refreshing.
D - For some reason I can't explain, I'm not a huge fan. It is really a case where the some of the parts is greater than the whole. It looks good, smells good, feels good, tastes okay (maybe that is it), but I just am not thrilled about it. It's not bad, but I doubt I'll buy it again.

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
