A: dark amber light brown color with a thin lined head; unfiltered consistency.
S: dank yeasty and malty character. Smells like an old ale but could be the ambiance of the resturaunt.
T: light caramel biscuit and apple like flavors. It's not overpowering but light and balanced
M/D: smooth medium bodied that went down very well with dinner. Good drinkability especially considering the place you get it and the food you enjoy with it.

Serving type: on-tap

An interesting idea- how could you turn down such an offer. A Samuel Adam beer brewed only for this restaurant? So a bunch of fella's any myself all ordered this beer and turned out to be pretty good! Dark brown with a nice aroma of molasses, it was fairly sweet, but seemed to go down smooth even though it had a bit of tangy-ness to it. Definitely tasted more like a homebrew than most beers on tap. Doesn't have a polished look or flavor profile, just sort of a interesting brown ale.

served in a pint glass on tap at the union oyster house in Boston, MA. this is the only place you can get this beer and Samuel Adams brews it just for them...

amber red color and clear with medium carbonation.

Smell was malty with light hop notes. nothing dominate that really stuck to me though.

sweet malt to start then a light citrus hop note followed by a very dry finish. Probably very dry from the molasses they use.

Medium body that fits well with the beer.

Overall it was a good beer. One of those must try things because it is a true rarity.

Serving type: on-tap
