Nice new surprise addition to the Sam Adams winter collection.
A-black in color, whispy cinnamon brown head the dissipates rather quicky. Bottle itself makes this brew inviting, half coffee cup and half a pint of porter nice visual.
S- wow, there is know doubt about what this brew is going for. Loads of coffee aroma, bitter dark chocolate, some vanilla extract.
T- again more coffee, nice bitter snap of settle hints of licorice and vanilla. The sweetness balances out the bitter flavor that to me tastes of freshly shaved dark chocolate.
M/O-has a real nice body, impressive lacing, down side of this beer is your taste buds get fatigue rather quickly. One is good enough for me in one setting. after that I'm looking for somthing else. Somthing new is always nice. I know alot of us buy the mix pack for the old fezzy wig alone. Nothing wrong with that though! Anyways it's a good beer not great.

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.
