Pours out a fairly bright reddish copper color with a tan head. The smell is sweet, some toasty malts and vague spicey hops. As this beer has warmed a bit it has improved. At first I was getting some odd solvent smells but as it has warmed I am getting those nice oak notes I would find in my beloved Jim Beam Black, some definite vanilla and caramel notes in there. The taste is unfortunately not quite as complex and I found it a bit thin bodied even for a Sam Adams brew. The taste is a lot of sweet toasty malts, and some spicey hops finish. It finishes pretty dry. Mouthfeel is fine but overall this beer is just not as rich and satisfying as it could be. A good experiment for a variety pack but nothing I would ever buy by itself.

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.
