A- Really dark brown almost red body with a dark caramel half an inch head.

S- Caramel malt, milk chocolate, some black licorice, mixes with some fruity banana like yeast.

T- Lots of yeasty banana like phenols come through with a sweet malty backing, lots of breads.

M- Pretty thick with moderate carb.

O- One of the best offerings I have seen from Sam Adams. Definitely worth picking up if you see it.

Poured from a 1PT 9.4 oz bottle into a stemmed glass showed a very beautiful dark reddish brown brew with a creamy tan head about 2" high, nice lacing hangs on as you enjoy this beer. The aroma is that of a Dark Strong Belgian Ale..a nice series of spicy notes hit the nose along with a alcohol up front cover...picked up a slight hint of chocolate and some oak from the barrels. The taste was straight Belgian Strong Ale with some nice spice, dark fruits and maybe a bitter coffee near the end. Mouthfeel is medium and right on spot, the flavors hang around on the tongue and gives a great aftertaste of spicy dark ale. Aside from being labeled A DARK BELGIAN STYLE STOUT it's listed on BA as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale...which is exactly what it tastes like, at 9% ABV it comes in where it should. This is a well made brew with a good solid flavor and would be great to share or use for a special occasion....as I did..good job and I enjoyed it.

Sour. And not in a good way. For me the combination of Belgian sour-style with the coffee notes of a stout just did not work. The sour flavor overwhelmed the characteristics of a stout, and allowed little of the other ingredients to reveal themselves. I was disappointed & found this beer off-putting
