From the Sam Adams Barrel Room Collection.
A- Dark black with a slight red hue. About a finger and half of froathy off white reddish brown head.
S- Fairly aromatic smell of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, cherries.
T- Chocolate, vanilla, light taste of cherries and other dark fruits. Slightly sweet aftertaste that doesn't last too long.
M- Very smooth, easily drinkable, medium bodied maybe a little bit on the heavier side.
O- This is probably one of the better beers I've had from Sam Adams and probably one of the smoothest beers I've had. I like beers that have a little bit more of a lingering aftertaste and more pronounced flavor, but other then that it was a great beer. Could've been a little bit sweeter and definitely more flavorful, but other then that it was a very well balanced beer.

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.
