Poured into the official Sam Adams drinking glass.
Appearance: Pours a rich, deep amber that reveals a reddish hue when held up to a light. With an aggressive pour, there is an abundance of manilla-colored head that looks strong and healthy. It dissipates slowly, and lacing covers all sides of the glass. Overall, this is top-notch in the looks department.
Smell: Sweet, with floral and citrus characteristics. The alcohol in this can be detected if one goes looking for it. The aroma of the beer is strong, and gives due-warning that this is a hearty beer.
Taste: Just like the smell, a sweet maltiness overcomes my tongue on impact. The citrus hints come out as I let it move over my palate and down my throat. This is a creamy brew, and while it is flavorful, it isn't explosive. It's comfortably in the middle. This makes for a great dessert beer.
Mouthfeel: Very thick, almost syrupy. However, this texture is not sickly, it is actually quite pleasant. There is minimal carbonation as well, which is always welcome. As I said before, it enhances the ability for this beer to be a good dessert after a good meal.
Drinkability: These are quite good, but they are simply not made for sessions. With its high ABV and full body, it would be tough to have more than two of these in one sitting. However, I would savor those two as they were served to me.
Quite a good brew, and it's a shame that it's not readily available at bars.

This beer was a good beer. I liked that it was a bock beer. I liked the malt body this beer, I liked that it was dark. I also liked the fruit taste that it has. I liked that it was sweet. I could taste the raisin fig that it has in its flavor. I would not mind having this beer again if I could find it somewhere where I live.
