look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep and clear amber orange with lots of rising bubbles. Solid three fingers of off white head with very good retention. Lots of lace sticking to the glass.
Smell: Deep aroma of sweet caramel malts with notes of toffee and brown sugar. Oak and vanilla are fairly subtle but there. Also some light hints of dark fruit and some earthy hops in the background. Kind of smells like an oaked bock.
Taste: Sweet bready malts with lots of caramel and toffee. A little sugar and hints of dark fruit. Subtle hints of oak and vanilla towards the middle with a light hint of wood lingering into the aftertaste. Finishes with some hints of earthy hops. A good malty taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Creamy, slightly syrupy, and very smooth.
Overall: A nice tasting beer. Good use of malts although the oak could of been a little stronger.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a dimpled mug.
The color is a deep orange/gold with a finger of foamy brownish head and some thick lacing left on the glass.
The smell is oaky with some sweet malt flavor that is right behind that nice woody aroma that is right in the nose first. There is a spicy bit of aroma as well and it has a slight caramel flavor.
The taste is big butterscotch and is almost like candy as it comes down. There is some nice sweet honey flavor as well that seems to lay down on the tongue and helps the oak flavor slide down and makes this taste just delicious.
This beer has such a smooth feel that is goes down easy even thought there is a bit of a punch that was not expected. A real jem from Boston Beer.
