4.7/5 rDev +24%
On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Beige head, moderate retention on a pretty much black body, clear lacing. Aroma includes notes of coffee, vanilla, nilla wafers, roasted malt. Taste includes coffee and a cookie like sweetness, some chocolate and vanilla. Nice mouthfeel, very, very tasty and very easy to drink. I must say I'm blown away by how tasty this beer is.

Poured from growler into pint glass. Nice brown/amber pour with a small 1 finger head and poor retention. Smell is a bit of chocolate, vanilla and oak/charcoal/wood. Taste was surprising as it was a good blend of malts and a nice subtle hop finish. Didn't get the over the top oak, but it did have a burnt note to it which was a little distracting. Some dark fruits and chocolate/vanilla as well, much like the nose. Feels was a bit thin for a porter, was wanting a bit more thickness. Carbonation was average. Overall- An interesting take on the Porter. Fairly complex and a good effort from SA. Liked the blend of flavors, but was wanting more of the oak/wood character. Would drink it again but not shaking the trees for it-

Samuel Adams Oak Aged Porter
LOOK: Deep brown in color, mostly clear. Small short livid slight off white head forms.
SMELL: Roasted malt mainly, with a real small vanilla/oak note.
TASTE: Roasted malts upfront, and like the nose, a small note of oak. Earthy, oaky, mild vanilla and a small sour tang. Slightly oxidized in the barrel, and the listed ABV was 5.2% .
FEEL: Light to medium bodied, low carbonation but still OK.
OVERALL: An interesting choice for an oaked ale, I would have loved to see something a bit stronger hit the barrel. Still, this was interesting.

Enjoyed a 5 ounce taste on tap.
A: A dark brown, which shines ruby red when held up to the light. There's a 1 finger foamy head that sticks around for a bit, with decent lacing.
S: A very sweet chocolate scent with very forward oak notes.
T: Here's where the beer began to disappoint. A little chocolate flavor, but stronger oak notes. The oak was somewhat sour and didn't work very well with the porter...at all.
M: Highly carbonated, but also really thin. Too thin in my opinion.
O: Disappointing, but not terrible. Not good, either. I definitely would not order again and probably would not recommend.

On-tap at Blue Palms
A: The beer pours a mahogany color with a finger of khaki colored head.
S: Definitely has some oak and vanilla notes to it. Light charred oak aromas as well as plenty of roast. There is quite a bit of sweet toffee and some mild fruitiness. A weird ash-like note on the back end.
T: Medium levels of sweetness, mostly in the form of toffee. The oak flavor is quite strong, but there is a bit of acidity to the beer and a weird flavor I cannot quite describe, perhaps spoiled chocolate?
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Not a bad aroma on this, but the flavor was a bit off. Wouldn't have this one again.
