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.

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.
