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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

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.
