I had this beer a couple weeks ago in the Sam Adam's sampler pack and decided to get another sampler pack and give all of them a try again. To be honest, I think this beer grows on you, and is actually pretty good overall. The look is what you would expect from a red ale. Amber brownish in color, and pretty clean looking. The main thing I get from the nose is faint vanilla, and possibly some light oak aging, and perhaps the smell of light, fresh bread. Taste to me is pretty good. The beer is sweet, but not overly so. Lots of malt, with a lingering vanilla taste, that follows to an oaky type taste. The oak taste in this beer does not taste like old oak barrels or anything like that, it's more like fresh cut wood, that's the best way I can describe it. Mouthfeel is smooth and carbonation is good. Liked this beer much more the second time trying it.

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.
