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. .

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
