look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pours a deep brown, dark ruby color with a tan head that fades pretty quickly and doesn't really leave any noticeable lacing. Nose hits very heavy with a cornucopia of fruity and earthy esters, the heaviest and most apparent being apples and grapes. Very, very sweet and malty aroma. The taste comes up and follows right along with the nose - fruity and actually slightly tart on the tongue, full of apple skins, grapes, and raisins. Sweet toffee and slight caramel shine through near the tail end of the beer. It finishes with a slight oak/woodgrain flavor and a touch of alcohol warmth. Bitterness is low and I really didn't notice any kind of florals or hops in this one at all. Medium-thick body, slightly sticky, low carbonation.

Pretty impressive outing from Sam Adams. This beer may look intimidating, but it was actually quite sweet on the tongue and the alcohol was hidden aside from the typical warming sensation it provided.

3.71/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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
