This is one outstanding beer, looks great and tastes even better! Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a standard Pint glass showed me a beautiful dark reddish brown pour with a 2 finger fluffy tan head which left nice lace as I sipped it down, the aroma is sweet and malty with hints of bread and brown sugar along with dark fruits. With the first taste I was happy I found another well made special beer by Samuel Adam's...they have many and I'm not a beer snob...so it's a winner. The medium mouthfeel sets up the malty sweet flow over the tongue, roasted malt and a rich bread round out the solid but fruity taste that hides the ABV well...and a hint of Carmel picks out at the end...a very solid Double Bock!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance was dark brown with a egg shell white head. The smell was very sweet with a lot of malt characteristics and almost a vanilla or caramel. The taste was heavy and a little boozy. But after that I got a lot of semi sweet flavor. Dominated by malt and heavy flavors. The mouthfeel was thick but satisfying. Overall very nice but maybe not for everyday.
