This is the best Sam Adams beer I have had to date. Very suprising how good this is. Poured an opaque black with a sand colored head that faded to a bubbly film. Smells of coffee, little chocolate, and hoppy. Taste is good, hoppier than I was expecting but not hoppy like a Bear Republic BBS. Still very tastey. I'm catching some green olives in the aftertaste also. . Some coffee and chocolate in there as well. Fairly thick feel to it. Overall this is a good beer that is pretty widely available. I would probably pick this up again. .

Samuel Adams' Imperial Stout. 9.2% ABV.
A: Just over a finger of chocolate milk brown head. Lacing forms almost immediately, thin, yet able to form multiple rings. Beer is black, with extremely dark brown in the dimple, and just the thinnest dark golden brown line at the very bottom.
S: Dry, bittersweet, powdery cocoa up front, with a bit of light coffee/dark toffee in the back. Just a faint bit of char and licorice. Fairly sweet aroma. Slight grassy note.
T/MF: Decent smoothness of texture. Grassy coffee dominates. Fairly crisp for a darker beer. A flare up of very dark toffee on the back end. I'm not getting any chocolate notes on the palate. A bit of char. Overall, though it has darker flavors, they are nice and light. A good beer for people newer to stouts, but still wanting a stronger beer. Not overly impressive, though.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
