This is the last of my reviews from notes that I took when my internet was down.
I starting pouring this beer into a snifter, realized I was getting nowhere, and just dumped it in. I got a finger of nice tan head that kept a thick ring around the top of the beer. It had a little dusting up top on top of the black body as well, and had decent lacing throughout consumption.
I smelled coffee and roasted malt, pleasant and present but not overly strong or impressive.
The flavor of this beer was a nice pleasant surprise. Sam Adams always disappoints when I expect it to be great and makes me happy when I expect it to be bad. I had a very likeable dark coffee flavor in this beer, along with roasted malt all followed up with a bit of bakers chocolate. Well done, Sam Adams.
Very drinkable. Its a heavy bodied beer, coats the mouth superbly as its very sticky. It's a yummy beer that kept me happy throughout.

Sampled December 2013 from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Very dark color with a nice tan head. The head lasted a long time, and left a thin coating on the inside of the glass.
Smell: There are roasted coffee aromas, along with some strong malt aromas. The combination made for an interesting aroma. Not much of a hop smell.
Taste: Full-bodied with an interesting mix of malt, and coffee. There is a little chocolate flavor as well. As with the aroma, there is not much of a hop flavor to balance the malt.
Mouth feel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy.
Overall: Good stout. I enjoyed the bottle that I drank, but the coffee flavor can dominate.
