4.2/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Pours black of course. Almost no light shines through. Only at the very top of the beer can you see any color other than black. Light layer of tan colored head. Head leaves minute amount of lacing.

S-Rich aromas of both roasted coffee and milk chocolate. Like chocolate covered coffee beans. Smells pretty tasty actually. Am excited to try this.

T-The coffee flavor is very, very authentic. Lasting light coffee flavors. Not a very bitter coffee taste. More like a coffee with cream and sugar. Chocolate dances around the flavor but the coffee is the big ticket here.

M-The flavor is bigger than the ABV but the feel matches the ABV which is nice because this would be a great session stout. Tons of carbonation. Medium body. Slightly creamy.

O/D-Overall, one of the best Sam Adams beers I have had. Way better than expected. Really hits the coffee flavor well. This needs to be at very least a seasonal six pack. I really liked it.

3.7/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
