Poured from bottle into Yuengling draft glass
Black body with a frothy khaki-colored two-finger head.
Nice nose on this one. Dark coffee, espresso, roasted malts, and chocolate all jockeying for position.
Taste is dark coffee, some espresso, and a roasted malt and chocolate finish. Its ok, but I guess the Founders Breakfast Stout spoiled this one somewhat for me.
Mouthfeel is a little more watered-down than I prefer, but I may be nitpicking since I like the imperials. About what I expected though for a single stout by a more mainstream brewer.
This is a good, but not great stout. If you like coffee and/or are just getting into stouts, this would be a nice introduction to the style. Sam Adams makes solid beers for the most part, and this one is no different.

A: Pours a dark, black with a short lived dark tan head.
S: Very malty aroma with no hop aroma. Lots of dark fruit, raisin. good amount of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol notes in the aroma.
T: Big burst of coffee and cream with a chocolate hit soon after with a bit of raisin. Black coffee makes up the bulk of the aftertaste with a mild black olive note . No hop flavor to speak of. The alcohol is hidden well and it has a slight acidic bite. Finishes dry.
M: Medium full body almost chewy with low carbonation.
O: This is a decent stout. Big coffee flavor but for me a little too big, It lacks something, perhaps a complexity that other stouts have. It's definitely a beer that I would have no problem sitting back with on a cold winter night.
